Today we'd like to share some more plaids from our team plaid project, this time from Kathy Berger.
My Plaidsby Kathy Berger
Baby Wipes and Re-inkers
To make the two above plaids I stacked four unfolded baby wipes on top of each other. I then folded the stack until the stack was about 3" wide and narrow enough to hold easily. I then dropped a few drops of re-inkers onto the folded edge of the wipes, leaving a gap between the drops. I swiped the baby wipes across the card stock, and then re-inked the wipes, and swiped in the opposite direction.
On the second plaid, once it was completely dry I used a straight-edge and coordinating colored Copic markers to draw lines in the plaid.
Here are the Easter and Spring cards I made with these plaids. I simply mounted my plaid onto a coordinating card-stock, and then to the card, and then added ready-made embellishments.
This plaid was created with three different widths of line stamps like those made by FranticStamper. The plaid has a much more formal feel than the baby wipe plaids that I made. I thought was just perfect for this Easter Egg card, whose top pivots open and closed, exposing the Hoppy Birthday tag inside.
After stamping the plaid with the line stamps, I thought it would be really fun to see what other "lines" I might have that I could use in their stead. I had a set of stitch stamps that I thought would fit the bill...and it did exactly that! This was my favorite of all the plaids I created, and was just perfect for this card to congratulate my cousin's daughter on the birth of her new baby. If you want to try making a plaid like this, the set I used is no longer available, but there is a stamp set from Lawn Fawn that would definitely be a good substitute.
