Best Year & Best Plaid & A Sneak Peek

Hello everyone.  It is time for another stamp off challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  This week we are having a color challenge.  These are the colors we need to use.

I decided to use So Saffron, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz.

Best Plaid, Best Year

I just love the new Best Plaid dies.  They are so much fun to make all different looking plaids.  Plus, they are super easy to use.  The Best Plaid dies are bundled with the stamp set called Best Year.  You can save 10% if you purchase them in a Bundle.

One hint I need to give you is if you want to line all the different pieces it is best to glue them all together and then cut them out either using a die or if you have a really good cutter that will cut out multiple layers at one time, you can use that.  In my case, I layered everything on top of a larger piece of Whisper White cardstock and then cut it all out at once using the Stitched Rectangle die.  It was four layers so I ran it through my die cutting machine a few times.

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink and cut it out using a die from the set called Tasteful Labels.  Then I stamped it again in Highland Heather ink and cut it so it make a 1/2″ strip.  Then I used a new punch that will be in the Holiday Catalog beginning in August called Banners Pick a Punch.  This is going to be a must have product.  It cuts three different sized banners in two different shapes.

Now, Let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made using these beautiful colors.  They always give me such good ideas!
