Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Plaid Tidings - August 2020

Hello lovely crafters and welcome to another fabulous Stamping Sunday Blog Hop!

This chilly August (in Australia) we are featuring the Plaid Tidings Suite. It's featured in the Mini Catalogue pages 56 -58.

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia you may have started here or come from the talented Ruth either way have a look and keep on hopping around to see what beautiful creations everyone has to share with us today.




Personally, I currently only have the Plaid Tidings 6"x 6"Designer Series Paper, but I am so glad I do because it's something I wouldn't normally choose and it has made me try out some really fun and lovely creations. I am really enjoying this paper.


I have made a Christmas themed card using the Plaid Tidings Paper and Crumb Cake cardstock as my base card. I also used the Merry Moose Bundle - Stamp & Punch. The animals were stamped onto Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake Ink.

The brilliant trees are from a new Die set called Pine Woods...this is the first time I have used them and I think they will be a winner in my books! They were created with Garden Green Cardstock.



The sentiment on the card (stamped with Early Espresso) is from the new Wrapped in Christmas Stamp from the Mini Catalogue.

The bow at the top of the card is the Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe, also from the Mini Catalogue.

Of course you can't miss the gorgeous Acorn Trinket wrapped around the moose's neck with some Linen Thread.



Perhaps by now, you may have noticed this is not an ordinary card. I have used Nicole Wilson's amazing design and recreated her card BUT with different papers and stamps etc. You can purchase her tutorial on how to make the card DESIGN (to be clear, Nicole's design is originally using the Peony Garden Suite 4 Ways from our June Tutorial Bundle, and the card I am showing today is from her design, but I am using different paper and stamps...but it is the same fancy fold card design as Nicole's).




This was quite a quick and easy card to make...as far as 3D or interactive cards go but so effective and I love it! I really love how it worked out. I will definitely use Nicole's design again for other cards.
