Plaid or Plain? - Part 2

Welcome to my second installment of Plaid or Plain?  This one using the Beautiful Autumn Bundle.
I love these tiny little detailed leaves, some are from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and some are stamped but both are cut with the cute little Autumn Punch Pack.
The first card uses a Soft Suede card base with a Whisper White layer that has been run through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Then I flicked tiny amounts of Just Jade and Crumb Cake ink on with my Water Brushes to add those small speckles to the texture.
I stamped some brown leaves out with Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and punched them out with the new leaf punches in the Autumn Punch Pack.   The acorns, rust leaves and jade leaves are punched out of the one of the beautiful sheets in the Gilded Autumn DSP.

Here is a tip when cutting a small image from some of the DSP.  Cut the images apart so that you don't punch into another image.  Then use a sticky note to hold it while you punch!  That makes it easy to line that little piece up with your punch.

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock, cut with one of the Ornate Frames Die and popped that up with some dimensionals.  I tied a double bow with Linen Thread and added it with a glue dot.


The second card uses one of the softer plaids from the Plaid Tidings 6X6 designer series papers.
I started with a Soft Suede Cardstock card base, a mat layer of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock and then the layer of the plaid dsp.

Next, I stamped out a frame from the Framed for You stamp set on Crumb Cake Card Stock and cut the frame out using the Layering Squares Dies and adhere it with liquid glue.  Using the gorgeous Gilded Autumn DSP and the Autumn Punch pack - I punched out some of the leaves and acorns from the dsp and used dimensionals to pop those up.  

The sentiment is from the Gather Together stamp set, stamped in Soft Suede ink on a piece of 5/8th" by 2 1/2" strip of Crumb Cake cardstock then punched at each end with the Lovely Lables Pick A Punch to get those scalloped ornate ends.  I popped the sentiment up with dimensionals as well.

Top it all off with a double bow tied in Linen Thread and adhered with a glue dot.

So which do you like?  The Plaid? or the Plain?

Both of these cards are perfect for staying in touch with friends that we have not been able to visit with.

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
