Easy Video Tutorial Using Tartan Stamp Set

by Laurie Willison

Hello, crafty friends! It's Laurie here, sharing several cards using the new Tartan Stamp Set.

This is an amazing new stamp set that is perfect for background and can be used for other decorative details. I have three projects to share and then a video with a bonus card showing how easy it is to use this new stamp set.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison7

To create this first card, I used coral cardstock and stamped the largest plaid image in the center of the card. I used the solid and striped images to add color to the blocks. Then I did a little white paint splatter and some sparkle spray to the card front.

Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Sentiment Strips on a strip of black cardstock and then added it to the center of the bloom.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison6After stamping the dotted leaf image from Dot Botanicals all over a white cardstock panel, I added it to a white card base. Next, I heat embossed the Tartan image on white cardstock, masking off each section and blending in Rubellite, Chamomile, Butternut, and Sweat Leaf inks.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison4After adding the Tartan panel to the card front with fun foam, I die cut “hugs” in black cardstock and black fun foam. I layered them together with liquid adhesive and then added the sentiment to the front of the card. Lastly, I added a few star embellishments to finish off the card.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison1I grabbed some gray cardstock and then stamped the Tartan in white ink. I love the contrast and the look of the plaid image. Next, I used Ruffled Flowers Stamp Set, stamping them out in Ocean Waves and Dusk inks.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison2Then I used the “hello” die included in the Envelope Liner Die Set on the front of the card. Coating the sentiment in glossy accents makes the perfect shine. Finishing the card off, I used some black gems to give the card a little more detail.

Altenew Tartan LaurieWillison3I have a bonus card to share in this next video.  This will show just how easy the new Tartan Stamp Set is to use. Watch it below or on Altenew's YouTube channel.
