Stamp School: How to Stamp Plaid

Hi friends! First up I want to announce the stamp winner from the fabric stamping tutorial last week: Rosana! I have sent the winner an email on how she can get her prise so if it is you check your email:)

The other day I shared a cute stamped teachers notepad gift and many of you asked me to show you how I stamped the plaid background. It is easy and you can use any stripe or ribbon stamp you have if you don’t have the plaid stamp I am using.

Watch the video to see how!

I used this stamp from DRS designs, I recommend if you are thinking about buying it you get the unmounted or cling mounted option because if you get the wood mounted one you can’t cut it apart and it will not be as useful plus it will be more expensive.

I had a look around and found some clear sets that would also be good, I think you get more stamps for your money too plus it may help you position them since they are clear. remember you can always mix and match striped and ribbon stamps to get the look of plaid! I love this set: My Favorite Things Plaid background Builder.  *It has the fabric texture! And these: Simon Says Stamp Basic Stripes Set and Simon Says Stamp All Striped Up Bundle.

A YouTube viewer also suggested cutting strips of fun foam to make your own stripes too, clever! Have fun making plaid and til next time happy crafting!
