Paperbabe Stamps Introducing DesignA Tweed

So it's our final day of introductions on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
And we are showcasing the DesignA Tweed stamp set. I have wanted to get this made into a stamp for some time now and here it is... I have so many pattern ideas I just haven't had the time to try yet.

I hope you like my samples so far...
I was so pleased with the burberry result, I've stamped the black using the medium stripe, then stamped again in pale ink between and then the thin red stripes. I coloured the remaining pattern with copic marker. I will definitely be trying this version again. I paired it with Thank you stamp.
I loved this grey check but the photo is making the red really really pop out, and it's just not that overpowering in real life. The strip at the bottom of the card has a subtle houndstooth stamped tone on tone. I finished off with the big Love & Laughter Sentiment stamp.
I wanted to create a feeling of tweed with this one, I think I would use a darker ink next time. The fabulous deer was heat embossed in gold on acetate then fussy cut out, I teamed it with a Christmas sentiment but I think it could work with any type.
I stamped the stocking in the herringbone stamp in red ink on cream card. The background is a very dark green and I stamped the solid lines and heat embossed in gold. I use a cosy Christmas sentiment to finish.
I really have so so many ideas of checks and plaids that I just tried a few on some mini heart tags. They've been dipped in gold tee hee, no I have heat embossed the bottom part... a little faux gold leaf but really it just looks like embossing lol!
This picture shows the shine better.

If you have time to, pop by the rest of the team to see their take on the DesignA Tweed Stamp set...


I'm sure the schools are finishing for Christmas holidays today, I hope you have a lovely Christmas and we will be back in the new year for our next challenge.

Enjoy a wonderfully creative holiday!
