Epic Herringbone

Epic Herringbone by Andrea G71

 May Stamp Club Card

Here is the final card we made at our stamp club workshop in May. The Herringbone Technique is a great way to use up any leftover strips of designer series paper you may have lying around.  I will definitely be trying this again in the near future.

You can find a tutorial for the Herringbone Technique on Splitcoaststampers.  

The instructions indicate that you need to use a Xyron to add adhesive to the card stock on which you will be adding your strips of paper.  I did not.  I used a regular tape runner but made sure I covered the entire piece of card stock with the adhesive.  No little parts of un-stickiness left uncovered.  :)


Stamps:  Word Play
Paper:  This and That Epic Day DSP, Whisper White, Early Espresso
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Garden Green and Early Espresso Markers, Sahara Sand
Accessories:  Label Framelits, Sponge Dauber, Dimesionals, Glue Dots, White Button, Brad, Gumball Green Ribbon

Artistic Etchings

Artistic Etchings by Andrea G71

May Stamp Club Card

Triple Stamping Technique

You can find a great tutorial on the Triple Stamping Technique on Splitcoaststampers.  I followed these instructions using the Artistic Etchings stamp set and the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel to make my card.  

Converting the Wheel to a Clear Mount Stamp

By the way, I don't actually use Very Vintage in it's "wheel form" anymore.  I have taken it off the wheel and use it as a background stamp.  Once again, Stampin' Pretty has a great tutorial on how to take your stamp off the wheel.  Just click HERE. 


Stamps:  Artistic Etchings, Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel
Paper:  Early Espress, Calypso Coral, Whisper White,
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Natural Ribbon, Early Espresso 1/8" Ribbon, Calypso Coral Baker's Twine, Button, Glue Dots, Dimensionals
