Variation on Herringbone Technique
If you follow my blog you will know that last month I taught how to do Herringbone technique in my classes. As I'm still making samples for my poster displays for Paperific in May I decided to play around with the herringbone technique to create a different background for my cards. Here is the result!
Colours are - Pink Pirouette, Island Indigo and Rose Red.
Designer Series paper is Fan Fair and stamp images are from the set - Postage Due.
Punches are -Postage Stamp, Modern Label and Decorative Label ( trimmed down, a neat way to get more use from your punches!)
The secret to creating these backgrounds and what makes the whole process is a lot easier are Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets $25.95 -120805 in the main catalogue. These sheets are ideal for this type of technique or Bargello or paper quilting.
Hey!!!! Did you know that if you see a Stampin'Up! product on my blog that you would like to have, you can now order online through my Online Stampin'Up! store 24 hours a day! How good is that!!!!
So to celebrate the arrival of my online store to my blog I am offering a free gift - Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack ( $11.95 value ) to the FIRST person to make an order of $100 or more through my online store. Go for it!!!!! I will email the lucky winner and find out which papers you would like. You will need to be ordering from Australia as my store only operates in Australia.
I hope you are the lucky one!
