All month long Joy Clair Stamps has been partnering up with Bazzill cardstock. I have to admit, there are sometimes when collaborations are harder for me and don’t really fit into my style. This collab was NOT one of those times. I use Bazzill cardstock on a regular basis and LOVE it!! What this collaboration did inspire me to do was think outside the box in using my cardstock and make the cards I made today! These cardstock patterned backgrounds are so easy and quick, but they’re a great way to use up any cardstock, including scraps, that you have on hand! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for all the details!
Each of these backgrounds uses the same colors of cardstock and are put together in the same way, it’s just about HOW you position them that makes all the difference. I started these cards by cutting five different colors of card stock from the Bazzill Basics line into A2 size and then from there I cut them into strips. There were no measurements, I just started cutting some thinner strips, some thicker and some in between!
You can use liquid adhesive to adhere these cardstock strips down, but I like to cover my panel in double sided adhesive. I use sheets from Scrapbook.com, but you could also use a tape runner or like I said use liquid adhesive and adhere each strip individually. This step is where you really get to have fun and play around! There are so many different patterns you could make! I made three different backgrounds today, and be sure to watch the video above for all the details on how I put each one together!
These backgrounds were so bright and colorful I knew they were perfect to pair with the new No Probllama Stamp Set. I stamped three of the llamas and colored each one. After fussy cutting my colored images I popped them up with dimensional adhesive onto the backgrounds. And after adding the panels onto card bases I popped on sentiment strips to finish off the cards!
I hope you all enjoyed today’s video tutorial! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used on my cards today, you can find them all linked down below! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
