Hi Everyone! On my team’s Facebook Group yesterday, I did a Facebook Live on 2 background techniques. This is one of them! It it sooo super easy. All you need is your acrylic blocks and ink pads!
Here I used Acrylic Block Size B to stamp 4 different colors. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! Then if so desired ( and I desired LOL) your can add other images on top of the background blocks. I love this cute bunny from Welcome Easter stamp set.
Hi Everyone! Today I have a fun and easy technique that helps use up scrap strips of designer paper. It’s the (big wink) Scrap Strips Technique LOL!
It couldn’t be easier. Glue strips of designer paper side by side. Pick an image to die cut and have at it!
Cut and layout your scrap strips.
Glue strips unto whisper white cardstocj
Example of finished sheet.
Die cut and enjoy!
I like starting with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White cardstock (not thick whisper white). 6″ wide because that the max. width of my die cutting machine. If you have lots of 12″ long scraps – you could make a 6×12.
Cut strips of scrap designer paper into 1/4″ x 6″ or 1/2″ x6″ OR whatever size you wish! 1/2″ shown above. AND feel free to mix and match the widths!
Arrange the strips in a pattern you like.
Glue using Multipurpose glue.
Die cut an amazing, one of a kind embellishment or layer!
