I don’t know about you, but I LOVE checkered paper! Well, the great news is that Stampin’ Up! has come out with an awesome stamp that lets you have a checkered pattern on any cardstock in any color!
I used Soft Suede cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check in Black. It came out so nice!! I stamped the Big Oak tree from Rooted in Nature and die cut it (thank God, no more fussy cutting!), put it on a square piece of Black and it really popped. Once I put it on the Checkered pattern I was in love! I used the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the NEW 2018 Holiday Catalog. It was the perfect touch! Instead of doing what I normally do, I placed the ribbon over the square, because it looked great with the tree ‘sitting’ on it! I hope you like it!
I’m teaching a class on the 10th at our local Senior Center, this will be one of the cards we will be making!
I have so much fun rubber stamping. When I was a young adult my sister started painting on porcelain making dolls and pottery. I was so impressed with her artistic ability. I thought well God gave her a gift, I am NOT artistic! Then I started stamping, at first I copied everything, then slowly started changing things up. I am so happy to tell you, I AM artistic! WOOHOO! I joined Stampin’ Up! over 15 years ago, and can’t see my life NOT doing this. If you would like to join my team, I would love to help you be artistic too!
Thanks for stopping by!
