Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features painters tape and You Got This stamp set for my first post as the newest member of Broke Stampers Unite challenge team! Don’t you just love their name?? I will give you a little more info on the group after I share my card.
So for awhile now, I have wanted to create a card with the masking/painter tape technique. It is super easy for when you have a Creative and Chaotic moment. Every card will be unique because no two backgrounds end up being the same.
The first step is to find a roll of left over painters tape or masking tape from the garage. (Who knows what other stamping treasures you may find while you’re out there. This dryer tape looks interesting.)
Next, tear of a piece of the painters tape and place it sticky side down in your ink pad. Don’t worry! This won’t hurt your ink pad. Rub it gently to get it all inked up. Basically, the tape is becoming your background stamp.
I am using two inch wide tape since that is what I had. Use whatever width you have. Make more or less stripes depending on your color choice. If you click on the image to the left, you will see how I am putting my tape right onto my ink pad and how I have place the tape right on my card. I used grid paper to help keep my lines somewhat straight. (Don’t look too closely because you will notice the card in this photo is in landscape. I didn’t like how the colors turned out. I flipped my card stock over and tried again, but I changed my mind on what image I wanted to stamp as well; so I changed the position to portrait.)
Once you have all your strips of tape onto your card, gently rub the tape down to make sure your ink is transferred. Peel the tape off your card and you have an unique, one of a kind background. The best part of painters tape is that it isn’t super sticky to begin with, so it won’t damage your card stock.
Finally, I inked the flower image and verse from You’ve Got This and stamp it in the middle of your card. Ta-daaaa! An elegant card that take only minutes to make.
