TLC397~ Woven Background ~ (10-1-12)
 
9 Attachment(s)
Happy Monday, everyone! I am posting this a little early so I won't forget in the rush before I head to work tomorrow. I am hoping that more of you will have an opportunity to play along...

I am so happy to be guest hosting today's Try a New Technique Challenge... My challenge today is for you to incorporate my "Woven Background" tutorial into your card. There are photos attached to help you with the written directions..

To start..

1. Choose a die as your template.
2. Cut a sheet of Sticker Paper just larger than your die. (You can run adhesive across a sheet of cardstock, use scor tape, "tear"ific tape, etc.)
3. Next cut your coordinating cardstock into 1/2" strips and as long as your Sticker Sheet..
4. Next peel your sticker sheet backing off just far enough to expose 2 rows of adhesive like so
5. Carefully position your first set of vertical rows and the first 2 horizontal rows on the adhesive and press firmly making sure not to touch the rest of your adhesive.
6. Now pull your adhesive backing down far enough to expose enough "sticky" for your next 2 cut strips..
7. Finish weaving your rows carefully aligning them and pressing to the adhesive.. Make sure you press them firmly to ensure proper adhesion..
8. Run finished piece through your die cutting machine to cut out your woven background.
9. Emboss edges if you choose... Remove woven background from die and assemble card as desired...

This is a super simple technique and looks awesome with all the fantastic coordinating Designer Papers out there... Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

This looks like FUN - can't wait to play tomorrow! LOVE your card!

I've never thought of doing this on sticky sheets before, that sounds like a GREAT idea to solve all the adhesive problems I've had in the past. Hope to find time to play in the next couple of days.

Omigosh! This looks like so much fun! However, I do not have a sticky sheet, I will have to think of something else!

Clownmom 10-01-2012 03:30 AM

No adhesive sheets here. I'll see if I can figure out if I can do it without it.

hobbydujour 10-01-2012 04:42 AM

I didn't have any adhesive sheets and don't have time to run out and get some...so I improvised. I realize my card is not true to the challenge of using your method, but I hope you find it acceptable.

You don't have to use sticky sheets... I have used sticky strip, scor tape, "tear" ific tape, double sided adhesive sheets, etc. Anything you have to hold your rows in place works... I just found that the sticker sheets were the best... Hope this helps and you will be able to play along.

TLC397 Just Because Cupcake
 
thanks for the great challenge! I used double stick craft tape on foam, and wove my paper strips through that. My cupcake comes from Hero Art's Birthday Phrases, and Studio G provided my sentiment. Added some texture with Cuttlebug's Qwerty, Mesh and Swiss Dots EFs. Finished with a dc button, and another button with a scalloped heart dc. Here's Just Because Cupcake

Had fun making a Halloween card- oranges and golds compliment my red tomatoes :) Here's Ghost Time

This went so easily after getting the first two rows established.
I used it to make a card for the HYCCT challenges.

TLC397 Tree Time
 
Sorry this is a little out of season, but just finished this small tissue box and had to use the cute illustrations- paired with a woven background- I used Cuttlebug's Qwerty, Snowflakes and Gear Box EFs- isn't he the cutest Santa?

Thanks for looking! Have a great evening! Hugs and smiles

Here's my card for today's challenge.
I put down double-sided tape at one end of my computer paper and attached all of the strips to that. Then I wove the rest of the pieces. When it was finished, I folded back the computer paper and used my tape gun on it and folded the computer paper back down on the woven part. Then I cut out my paper with the die. Hope this helps.

Thanks Sue. That really does help. I got lost at step 4 of Keri's tutorial. I've tried weaving before but always ended with pieces getting stuck down before I got the weaving done. Your method might work better for me.

Here is my RIVETING BEST WISHES.

I'm a little rushed this morning but managed to finish my card that I started last night. It fulfills four challenges but I'm claiming a 5th, that being it was a challenge starting a card at night and having everything go wrong. Ack!! So anyhoo, here 'tis. Loved this technique and am going to play with it some more with a little fine tuning. In the daytime. :D

TFL!!

HMMMMM I'm not very good with these sort of things....I'll give it a try it sounds cool.
I get very lost with folding and weaving. Challenged that way! LOL.

2manycookbooks 10-13-2012 08:47 AM

OK I did it! A bit tricky to keep things lined up but I managed to get through it.

So here you are!
