Fresh Prints Herringbone Thank You

This past weekend I met with my downline members for a Stamp 'n Share day.  This is a day where we stamp together, share ideas and learn about stamping techniques and products.  We share a pot luck lunch and really just have an amazingly fun day!  This time around we learned about the Herringbone Technique and I wanted to share it with all of you!

Fun, isn't it?  The Herringbone Technique is a perfect technique to use up scraps of Designer Papers.  You can cut them to any width you want; for this card, I cut my strips to 1/2".  I did a quick video to show you how it's done...you'll be surprised at how easy it is!

One of my favorite parts of the card is the little medallion I made!  Here's a closer look.

You can make a medallion like this in 5 easy steps.
  • Stamp your image (I used Crumb Cake & Real Red markers to make my image multicolored)
  • Punch out your image
  • Apply SNAIL to the back of the punched piece
  • Stick ruffled ribbon trim around the punched piece
  • Stick the finished medallion to your project
I finished it off with one of my favorite buttons, the Basic Metal Buttons, some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and some bling!
