Beyond Plaid and the Stippled Blossoms

Yes, you read that correctly Beyond Plaid and Stippled Blossoms!   Beyond Plaid is a new set in the Occasions catalog and it felt like a set that would be very useful and fun to work with but to be honest I was not sure what I was going to do with it.  It works wonderfully as a shadow stamp which I did on this card but what else?

It finally dawned on me that I could use it to mimic Designer paper!  Doesn’t it look like I used a Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the bottom part of the card?     I added the Black Taffeta ribbon and used the Perfect Polka Dots folder on just the top half to help with the illusion.   What do you think did I pull it off?

Beyond Plaid Stippled Blossoms

Stamps: Beyond Plaid, Stippled Blossoms, Beautiful Birthday
Ink: Black Stazon, Real Red, Old Olive
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots folder
Extras: Black Taffeta Ribbon, Stamp--a- ma- jig

I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the herringbone stamp.  I know it is the tool we love to hate but it is invaluable sometimes.  In case you are wondering it is on page 7 of the big Idea Book and Catalog.   I also want to point out the Beautiful Birthday stamp.  It is a single stamp and it can be found on page 44 of the big Idea Book and Catalog.   I would love a whole set of sentiments with this font. 

There will be more ideas using the Beyond Plaid set coming soon.  I am pretty excited about the possibilities with this set.  If you would like your own Beyond Plaid stamp set or any of the products I used be sure to go to my online store or contact me and I would be happy to help you.  Remember it is Sale-A-Bration time and I have a little ordering bonus for you too. 

Have a wonderfully creative day and hope to stamp with you soon!






It sure does look like DSP, that is what I thought it was! Cool!!!


You definitely pulled it off, I thought it was DSP! I think this card is stunning.

A very gorgeous card here. Your design is perfect and your coloring is stunning. Thanks so much for sharing this with me.

Yes, you pulled it off I would not have known if you didn't tell! I like that you say the stamp-a-majig is what we love to hate! Honestly, it's the best and so easy once you play with it and figure it out :) Now I want that set - sigh....

Thanks everybody! Still working on figuring out if I can do this with the plaid stamp.

I think the Beyond Plaid stamp set is so intriguing and I love the cards you've posted showcasing its versatility ... you certainly pulled off this dsp look-alike using the herringbone image! What a beautiful card! Thank you for the inspiration .... hope you'll be sharing more creations with this set!
