Stamp Review Crew - Perfectly Plaid

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Perfectly Plaid edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Jay's blog, Mitosu Crafts, welcome! There are eight of us playing with plaid today, so there should be lots to inspire you!

The Perfectly Plaid stamp set is 13 pieces of photopolymer, meaning it's perfectly clear to make it easy for lining up two-step stamping. And it has a matching Pine Tree Punch so you can punch out a lot of trees in a jiffy!


I have two cards to share today. For the first one, I was feeling kind of Fifties-retro with the color scheme. Definitely not your traditional Christmas colors!

I used Magenta Madness, Just Jade, and Bumblebee ink with sponge daubers to ink up the plaid tree. The matching In Color Enamel Dots added festive decorations to the trees.

Since the trees were so.... colorful, I went with Basic Gray as a neutral background and heat embossed the white greeting.

The second card is completely different. This one is a little more elegant, I think. Starting with a Gold Cards & Envelopes, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla slightly smaller to fit inside the gold metallic printed card base.

After heat embossing the gold greeting, I used the Wrapped In Texture folder to emboss the top above the greeting and wrapped a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon around it before adhering to the card base.

The trees were also heat embossed in gold (I did a lot of embossing today!) and punched out, then adhered with mini dimensionals. A few gold Metallic Pearls topped the trees.

That's my share for today, so jump on over to see what Lou at With a Bow on Top has made!


  1. Fabulous cards, Cindy!I love the colors on the first just can't beat a pink tree! Your second card is definitely elegant and classy! did do a lot of embossing, but the result is stunning!

  2. I love the different & unique card of neutral background and pop of colors! The 2nd card is much more of a "Cindy" card. :)

  3. Oooh! I love both of these Cindy. The first one so fun and the second so elegant. x
