A Day For Daisies: New Challenge – Use Plaid 8-28-15

Happy Friday!  It’s new challenge time at A Day For Daisies and we are using “Plaid.” Plaid goes so well with the showcase of our Veggie Lover collection!

I decided to make my own plaid pattern using The Alley Way’s “Crossing Lines” stamp set, but there are a lot of plaid stamp sets out there or pull from lined stamps already in your stash.  If you ever need inspiration, Laura Bassen of Doublestick Heaven is the queen of plaid. For my colors I used Hero Arts Butter Bar, Soft Leaf, Raspberry Jam and Simon Says Stamp, Green Leaf.

I colored the “Fancy Beets” with Copics in R37, R39 and RV99.  The stems were colored in YG03, YG17 and YG67. The sentiment label and circle die are Clearly Besotted, thanks sentiment is Simon Says Stamp, and “a bunch” is WPlus9. 

This is sure to be a super fun challenge and we can’t wait to see your plaid creations on both A Day For Daisies Blog and Facebook Community Page!

Brown Sugar Challenge #161: Big Sentiments

Happy Friday!  It’s time for a new challenge at Brown Sugar Challenges and today, we are looking for “Big Sentiments.”  This challenge is sponsored by Di’s Digis Stamps offering a $12.00 voucher to their store and SLS Lines Digital Stamps offering 3 digital images or products for $10.00 from their store.  Thanks Sponsors!!

For my card today, I’ve used SLS Lines “Tired Mom.”  I think those of us mothers can related, right?  I colored colored mom with Copic Markers and used Glitz’s “Brightside” 6 x 6 paper pad. My image and card base were cut out using a My Favorite Things dies.  My large sentiment “MOM” is cut out using a WPlus9 die, colored with Copics and glittered.  I figured she needed a little sparkle.
