Club Scrap technique of the month April

Every month there is a challenge on the Club Scrap blog
with a technique of the month.
One of the members of the Artist Team will pick a technique
and make sample cards for that technique.
You can try this technique and add your card/ project to the 
link at the Club Scrap blog HERE.

This month it is my turn and I have chosen 
The Carpet Tape Chronicles
as the technique of the month April.

There are several video's in the Club Scrap archive
and different techniques one can do with carpet tape.
This started with the first technique called the herringbone 
technique and the video about this technique is here:

There are more ideas with carpet tape,you can als see them 
on the Club Scrap Blog
but here on my own blog I will share some more ideas.

Today I show you alsohow you can do the
herringbone technique in another way,if you just don't
happen to have carpet tape at hand,but you do have 
washi tape! in the 50s collection there was a yellow roll
of washi tape and with some of my own stash I made
the same herringbone technique with the tape:
Use the tape exactly as you would do
with the paper strips.

You don't have to cut them of,you can 
easity tape them to the back,just at the
corners you have to give them a little cut.
What makes your card extra interesting is using 
an embossing folder. Now I found this fun 
kitchen embossing folder matching the 50s Kitchen
theme from last month.

You can deboss the background and leave as
it came out after running it through your embossing machine.
Or you can emboss and use some ink
on the raised emboss part to make them extra visable.
Her is the finished card with a fun little
charm frommy stash and one of the
cut apart sentiments fromthe kit.

For this card I used the digital 50s Kitchen to
print the sentiment.I did not want to cover
alot of the background, for it looked so nice.

Hope you wll be inspired this month to link your
card or other project to the linky party on the 
Club Scrap Blog.I will have some other posts
sharing more ideas with the Carpet Tape Chronicles.
Hope you come back and have another look.
Have a creative day!

How cool to use washi tape in the herringbone design! You are so creative, Hetty!!! I wouldn't have thought to use the embossing folder afterward! Such a cool effect! Thanks for showing both the "debossed" effect and the way it looks inked! Hugs, Laura

I love the idea of using washi tape as a option. Using the embossing folder is a wonderful idea!
