Background Stamp Weaving

Hi all! Kristina here. :)

Today I tried out a little bit of weaving with strips of cardstock that I stamped on. Did you weave pieces of paper together when you were a child in school, too? :) This makes me think of the projects we created and put on the wall outside our classroom.

Anyhow, I thought it would be a fun way to utilize a background stamp. Mine went a bit wonky near the bottom of the card, so when you create yours, be sure to watch carefully as you adhere the final weaving pieces together. :)

As for the stamping, I used the Floral Dot background stamp and the Sending You Love stamp set from Hero Arts. I kept everything very monochromatic by using yellow ink on yellow paper and blue ink on blue paper.

  2. Hello Kristina,
    Love the card, especially the yellow and aqua combo. I really like the narrow and wide strips too. I must give this a try.

  3. I love to do stuff like this with paper! Very creative and fun :)

  4. As a basket maker, I've been enjoying all the woven paper cards I've seen on blogs lately. You had some great tips on this tutorial, Kristina, as you always do. This is a great way to use of some of those papers we aren't really fond of. Thanks!

  5. Awesome idea, which I also have used more times to make more different things, and a great way to get used some of the scrap pieces, that we some times tend to leave behind all the times, and it´s easy to make almost anything looks good this way. Thanks again for a great tutorial hun.

  6. I love this look and it makes me look at all my background stamps with a new idea - thank you so much!

  7. That looks neat - I'll have to give that a try!
