Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set

I was catching up on my Facebook feeds and ran across the layout for this card on the Demonstrator Planning Place. A site for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators all over the world, where we share card ideas, projects, and ideas for classes and events.  It's one more of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  It's a great resource for finding inspiration when you need a quick jump-start to your creativity.  This original idea came from Stesha Bloodhart ,one of the wonderful Artisan's on the Stampin' Up! Design Team.   She cased the layout from the catalog and changed up the colors to make the card here own.  I loved here color combinations and made only minor changes to her beautiful card.  It uses many items from the Stampin' Up Wrapped In Plaid Suite from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, including the Perfectly Plain Stamp Set.  

The basecard for this card is Thick Very Vanilla.  Then a the top half is a layer of Gold Foil Sheet.  The bottom half is one of the prints from the Wrapped in Plaid 6" X 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper (149596). 

The ribbon between the two layers of paper is the Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon and the ribbon is Very Vanilla.     


Then I die cut a circle fro Gold Foil Sheet (132622) using the Stitched Shapes Dies (145372).  The stitched circle is mounted on Dimensionals.

I used the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set (149418), and stamped one of the images in Versamark ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped it again on a piece of Cherry Cobbler.  Then both images were dredged with Gold Stampin' Embossing Powder and set with my eat Tool (129053).  I used the Pine Tree Punch (149521) to punch out the threes, including the center tree in the photo above, which uses another print from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (149596).     

I used another piece of Very Vanilla, and stamped a sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed the sentiment using Gold Stampin' Embossing Powder.  The final elements added were the Metallic Pearls, which come in both Silver and Gold  I used the Gold Metallic Pearls to match my card's color scheme.  

You'll find so many creative ways to use the Perfectly Plaid Bundle -- Stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch.  Use the Bundle order number (151143) to save 10% when you order the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch together.   You'll love everything you make with this bundle.

World Card Making Day This Saturday  

Are you ready to stamp some cards?  (The answer is always YES!)  World Card Making Day is this Saturday!  Set aside some time, look through my blog for inspirational ideas, and make a few cards for Fall occasions. 

Then, next week, we have a goal to send 50,000 cards during the first annual World Card Sending week.  Watch for an update on October 8 to learn how many cards we send.  Get out your address book and start addressing your envelopes now.  Then, let's make some cards and get them in the mail.  Make someone happy they know you!  Let someone know you care.  

If you're a demonstrator, on Saturday, during World Card Making Day, we'll join our DDMs on the Demonstrator Planning Place for "Craft with Us" sessions including project ideas and tips.  If you sign up as a demonstrator before Saturday, you can join us on the Facebook Demonstrator Planning Place during World Card Making Day, and you can also order the new Paper Trimmer as part of your Starter Kit.  Join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator today and enjoy the fun!
