Scrappy Stamping Technique created with Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches stamp set


Have you heard of the scrappy strip technique? 

It's super simple, really effective and uses up small strips of leftover patterned paper. It was invented by Bruno Bertucci and has quickly been replicated by demonstrators over the world! You can check out lots of versions on Pinterest by clicking here.

Today, I am showing you a similar technique - instead of using strips of patterned paper I am using strips of stamping! 

What do you think? Do you like it?


It's funny, I came up with my version entirely by chance. 

I had stamped some feathers from the Tasteful Textures stamp set for the card in my previous blog post. I had to trim off several edges to get the size I wanted. Seeing the offcuts of strips on my desk in a pile, I thought WOW, they look amazing together, especially on a white background! 


I didn't have enough strips to make a card, so I stamped more feathers onto Whisper White cardstock. I decided to introduce another colour and omit the silver embossed feathers. 


I heat embossed the sentiment 'Just saying hello' from the Tasteful Textures stamp set, die cut it with a square from the Stitched Shapes dies and adhered it onto a piece of silver foil card die cut using a the layering squares dies. A few rhinestone embellishments nicely finished the card.

So here we are! This is my version which I am calling the Scrappy Stamping Technique - except my strips have been stamped, they are all the same width and they have been set in a diagonal direction!
