Playing around with Plaid

Posted by on March 15, 2014 in Distress inks, Love you cards, Online card class, Simon Says Stamp | 9 comments

Today I am donning my Laura Bassen hat and attempting to create a plaid pattern for the first time for the online card class – Clean and Simple Card making 3.


I created the stripes using masking tape as shown in her video. I could watch this woman stamp all day – so much talent and comedy all wrapped up in one video. Below are two versions that I came up with.

  1. Absolutely stunning – and well done incorporating techniques from the last lesson!

  2. Wow – both of these are beautiful. I love the masked heart. I am going to be CASEing this idea for sure. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. You wear “Laura’s hat” very well, Marion – brilliant stamping 🙂

  4. Ok, I like yours better than mine! AWESOME plaid…so bright, vivid and happy♥

  5. These are fabulous!!!

  6. Nice combination of the two techniques! I’ll bet this card gets picked for the show-and-tell day at the end of class. 🙂

  7. Wow awesome plaid design!

  8. More great results, you get an A+ in my books!
    This technique is on my ‘to do’ homework, all planned out like a good girl, but planning and following through with the original idea are two totally different things lol.

  9. Love how you incorporated the plaid on the card with the masking! 🙂
