I used the masking tape technique to create the background for my card share today. I’ve got a quick tutorial that you can see here showing you this technique, it’s really simple and pretty! I also used the Lots of Thanks stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for the sentiment and a few pieces of Sweater Weather DSP for accents.
My card design was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 284.
I started by using blue painters tape and my Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango ink pads to create the striped background on a Whisper White panel. Then I adhered the panel to a Soft Sky card stock panel with SNAIL. I adhered a banner that I’d cut from Sweater Weather DSP with SNAIL. Then I used the Autumn Accents Bigz die to cut two leaves and the acorn from Sweater Weather DSP and I adhered them to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on a Sahara Sand card base, then I adhered the layered panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished the card front by tying a bow from Natural Linen Thread through a Naturals Designer Button, then adhering it to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I finished the inside of the card by adhering part of a leaf that I’d cut from the Sweater Weather DSP with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to a Whisper White panel.
