Gettin' Strippy, Stamp Together Style

Several times a year I hold a class I call Gettin' Strippy. I call it that to be clever, but don't be scared of it. :) We're simply using strips of paper on our cards when we have that class. Nothing shady going on here...just wanting to use up some scraps! 😂

This past Saturday I decided Gettin' Strippy and Stamp Together Saturday - which I hold on Facebook each Saturday at 9:30am Central - needed to meet. Stamp Together Saturday attendees love cards with a quilty feel, and I'd say this one fits that mold.

As always, I shared cutting instructions for this card in advance so that those who wanted to could cut their paper in advance and create right along with me.

You can watch and stamp along by heading to watch the replay on Facebook. In the card I made live on Saturday, I used the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper.

Funny thing is, up until about 10 minutes before I went live to make this card, I was going to use different Designer Series Paper. I planned to use the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper, but I couldn't find that paper, so I felt all I could do is change my plan at the last second. However, I did find the paper later and made my card using two of the colors in the pack - Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide. Ack! It's the perfect fun, bright, and bold birthday card, isn't it?

The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", but that's not the layer on which the strips are attached. Instead, they're attached to a piece of cardstock measuring 5 1/4" x 4". I cut eight strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that measures either 3/4" x 6" or 1" x 6". I added the vertical strips first, then started adding the horizontal strips on the right, making sure to leave a small space between strips.

I flipped the paper over and trimmed the strips along the cardstock underneath it.

I then added the strips to the left hand side, flipping the DSP to reveal the other sides and using each side twice, as needed.

I adhered this layer onto the card base, then for this card added a loop of ribbon with a bit of Stampin' Seal.

I chose the Nested Essentials Dies for the label and stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the Circle Sayings stamp set in Tahitian Tide ink. I popped that label up over the ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals for perfect simplicity.

For a list of products I used on both of these cards, along with links to those products in my online store, see below.

Happy Simple Stamping!
