Stamp Review Crew: Buffalo Check Edition

Time for a new edition of the Stamp Review Crew's Blog Hop!  We are changing it up slightly this session as we are featuring a single background stamp rather than a stamp set.   Just wait until you see the wide range of ways Crew Members have used this wonderful classic patterned stamp!

As always, we have our blog permanently linked so you can enjoy this and all past hops at anytime.   If you click on the banner below you will be taken to the SRC website with details of crew members and a full listing of past stamps the "Crew has reviewed"!

Buffalo Check is such a great classic pattern.   It can be rustic, sleek, subtle or bold depending on color and tone choices.   I used this stamp recently for a whimsical card set with brighter Fall/Halloween colors on a light colored background.    The effect was fun and energetic.

I thought this time I would go for a more stately look with dark ink on a rich colored background.  I experimented and found the lovely combo of Blackberry Bliss ink stamped on Rich Razzleberry paper.
The classic colors and plaid made me think of a designer purse.  
I would love to have one IRL in these colors!
Of course the purse needed a few things to go inside...
Mini composition notebook and Hershey Nuggets (YUM!)
I finished this little gift set off with a very simple card in keeping with the minimalist theme.
TIP:  Use a thin line of Tombo Multipurpose Glue to adhere the  Braided Linen Trim
Oh I do wish I had more time to create with this lovely stamp!  Since I do not (sigh) I will be looking longingly at all the creative goodness of the my crew members!  Please click on the buttons below to check them out!
