I wanted to try out Laura B’s plaid stamping ever since I saw her tutorial at Ellen Hutson blog and after viewing her video at the CAS #2 class, I was determined to give it a go.
I practiced couple of times before I did these cards. I still need to do more practice to get it perfect.
But here are couple of cards I made using plaid stamping.
There is story behind this card. After viewing Laura’s video, I drove to the hospital to see my husband and at the same time looking for some inspirations. No! he is not sick! He is the doctor there. I met his colleague, an old man and guess what? He was wearing a cute plaid bow. These paediatricians get away with wearing all sort of quirky clothes lol! I love old men wearing plaid blazers, ties and bows. They look adorable. This man was wearing a yellow plaid bow and suspenders. He looked…. well! Quirky! Anyway, my inspiration for this card comes from this doctor’s yellow plaid bow.
I have used different shades of gray, yellow, and black SU inks to make the plaid. Then cut the bow using Lil Inker’s Bow die. The sentiment is from Wplus9’s Super Star Stamp set.
Keeping with the masculine theme, here is another card.
I had fun today, stamping plaid and hands are very inky. lol! Thanks Laura for an awesome video and sharing with us plaid stamping technique.
Tomorrow I will try Jennifer’s DIY inkpad technique. I don’t have the inkpad but I do have babywipes:)
See you soon.
