Its time for the Plaids!!!

Hey all,

This time I am on! It has a long time I have crafted anything in particular. Missed me? I missed you people much :)

I have been in love with the Plaids stamp from the beginning and one day I got ample time to play with the designs and had made a lot of plaid designs in every possible color that I could think at that time!

So, why not play with the plaids today? 

Without wasting much time, lets get started :)

Today I am bringing four very easy to do designs with plaids.

First Card

Apart from the Plaids stamp design I am focusing on the Solid shapes for this card.

First of all, stamp the hearts and the diamonds with your favourite colors, here I have used distress inks and highlighted them with felt pens.

Fussy cut them. Arrange them and stick them in a circular form to make flowers.
I have used a plaid made with black archival ink. I adhered the plaid design on a pale yellow cardstock and coupled it with some rhinestones and enamel dots.

Too much possibilities with these stamps!!! I bet you second me.

For the second card I have used a combination of plaids and the Monstrous Stamp for a Birthday card.
This card is very simple to make. I had preserved a plaid design on Pink which I have used for this card. I stamped and colored some images from Monstrous stamp. I made this a Shaker Card. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday to You set.

Third Card

The third is a super time saver! I have used a plaid design I had done with the distress inks and I love the look it has resulted into. Just the plaid with the skeleton leaves, Jute twine and the sentiment! And its done.

The sentiment is arranged from the Banner Alpha.

Linking this project to:

Fourth Project

The last card of the day from my side is a simple one arranged with a patterned paper, a hand lettered fussy cut sentiment and an arranged sentiment from Banner Alpha. AND Its done!

Aren't these too simple?

Card making tip: The card making becomes super easy and time saving if you have plaids earlier. I had made plaid designs earlier on different colors and these four cards took hardly an hour to complete. 
So, whenever you are free, play with the plaids ^_^
Thanks for having patience with my long posts everytime :) 
Waiting to see your designs with these wonderful plaids.

With much love
