Die Week continues today with a cool technique for creating backgrounds from Jaclyn Miller!
Check out this card Jaclyn made.
Sure, they look like patterned paper. But guess what?! They are not! Jaclyn made her own patterned paper by cutting several Chevron Strips with the Chevron Strip steel die and then laying them onto her card. So clever!
You can use this same technique with many of Technique Tuesday's steel dies. For instance, cut several hearts with the Nested Hearts steel dies and adhere them to cardstock. You'll get a great paper for a Valentine's scrapbook page or card. Cut several clock faces with the Good Times steel dies and adhere them onto a piece of cardstock. You'll end up with the perfect paper for a heritage scrapbook page.
Speaking of cool backgrounds, here's a scrapbook page from Heather Balzer, a friend of Technique Tuesday.
Heather created the background paper for her page by die-cutting several globes from white cardstock with the Let's Go steel dies. Then she adhered them onto a sheet of white cardstock.
By using white on white cardstocks, Heather not only ended up with a DIY patterned paper but she ended up with a faux dry-embossed look! Love that!
Be sure to swing by the Technique Tuesday blog again tomorrow. Another Creative Team member will be here with a project created with TT's DIY Steel Dies! Hope to see you then!
