Create a Fun Background with the Best Plaid Builder Dies

Today, I’ve got a card showing you a fun way to create a background with the Best Plaid Builder Dies. You know how they say crafters don’t throw anything away? This card came as a result of a ‘oh, I just can’t bear to throw that away’ moment. I created a card last week using the Best Plaid Builder dies. You can see the original card here.

I used Shimmery White cardstock to create a watercoloured background. Once I cut the plaid piece, I had all these cute little squares laying around. They were too good to throw away so I used it to create this checkered look. Add the leaf from the Forever Gold Lasercut paper and I had a very simple, yet striking card. 

Then, I added a tiny bow and it sat for a few more days on my desk. The creative process takes time! Finally, a simple sentiment embossed in gold from the Best Year stamp set layered on Sahara Sand cardstock was the finishing touch for this card. You can purchase the Stampin Up! Best Year stamp set and the Best Plaid Dies as a bundle which will save you 10% off the total cost. Click on any of the product images below to be taken to my Online Store.

#gdp251 Aquatic Theme Turtle Card

With a theme of Aquatic in the Global Design Project challenge, I could have chosen a number of the Stampin’ Up! water themed stamp sets. With yachts, boats, coral, sea creatures and more – there was so much to choose from. I finally decided on the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. 

I already had a beautiful piece of coloured cardstock which I had created using the Forever Gold Lasercut Paper. To create this, I used the white side of the lasercut paper which I coloured in Pretty Peacock using a sponge dauber. I placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock under this ‘stencil’ to create another panel. This is what I used on this card on top of my embossed layer. 

#gdp251, Turtle card, Aquatic theme

I tore a piece of Fluid 100 Water colour paper and added a water colour wash on it using Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Pretty Peacock. Then I ran this through the Tasteful Textiles Embossing folder. For some added texture, I roughly added Versamark ink direct from the ink pad to sections of the paper. Then I heat embossed it in gold. This gives it a bit of an under-the-sea-buried-treasure look.

The coral was stamped on one of the sheets of DSP and fussy cut. I love how these colours all came together to form the look of the depths of the ocean. The cute turtle has been fussy cut from DSP.
