Stampin'Up! All Abloom Herringbone!

Hey there. On the stage at Leadership, Shelli Gardner reminded us of a fun technique using Washi Tape called "herringbone". I had almost forgotten about it again until I found a herringbone example by Peggy Gilbert online today. I almost couldn't CASE her creation fast enough I was so in love with it!

Here's my version using the All Abloom Designer Paper Stack:

Believe it or not, I DID NOT CUT ANY OF THESE STRIPS to make this card! I had all of these strips in my scrap stash I keep with each designer paper pack! This card went together so fast, it took longer to decide which stamps to use than anything else! This technique is perfect for all of those little scrap/strips you just hate to throw away!

Mossy Meadow is the green color in this paper, so I used that color for my card base, and then used a bit of Mossy Meadow twine (from the new In Color Accessory Pack that is one of the new offerings as a free Sale-a-bration item this month) to glue-dot a  tiny bow on top of the Melon Mambo button from the Brights buttons pack.

Inside I did cut the four strips to edge the 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White layer because I needed 1/4" wide strips to leave room for the sentiment from the Simply Wonderful Sale-a-bration set.

That's it for today. I'm adding the supply list below to help you when you are shopping in my online store:
