Every month Club Scrap challenges us with a different crafting technique. For February's technique Roni shares with us how to stamp with tape. Who knew there were so many ways!?
I'm always up for a new, fun challenge. Here I'm using the new Crewel & Unusual Greetings to Go kit. This kit has three sets of cards with two of them having some fun folds. They are difficult to photograph, so they do look a little bit "off".
I started off by stacking my two purple panels on top of each other, as they would on the card. Inked up my painters tape with white ink and then stamped the tape on the panels. Re-ink the tape and stamp three rows.
Decorated with included ribbon and tags,
This next card I taped off one section that I was going to use for my sentiment and stamped around it.I even went a little further and stamped many heart images in watermark ink, using post-it notes to mask the stamped images and created different stamped layers.
I then colored the images using my Pan Pastels
Adhered red ribbon to one side of the gate fold and three red heart brads randomly. Stamp sentiment.
I did a similar technique for the last card. I taped the outside edges of the panel and stamped the inside section. I first splattered some Color Bursts and stamped a background dotted image. Removed the tape and stamped my three flowers. Stamped right gate fold with border. Adhered tag and ribbon.
You should give tape a try in your next stamping project!
