Question Weaving

I can't figure out how you do the weaving technique. Do you weave the paper then stamp or vice versa? How wide do you cut the strips etc... I think I can do it if someone will explain it to me. Thanks in Advance Janie

There are three different types of weave that I've done. One is to stamp the paper, cut it out and then weave. I did this one with the Hero Arts ribbon set. It is cut as wide as the stamp design. I started by using tacky glue to hold the strips in place only at the very top of the down strips then weaved across and securing with glue as I weaved.

This card is slits cut across the top card layer, then weave the strips down and glue in place with tacky glue or tape it down. There is a quarter inch from top and bottom slits and a half inch from the sides. The slits are a half inch wide.

I also weave the paper first then stamp on it. I don't have one in the gallery so I borrowed one of Carol Dee's cards. When I do this I use tacky glue and a straight pen so the glue goes on thin and doesn't distort the paper.

If you have any further questions post it here or PM me and I'll try to answer your question. It is a fun technique to work with and a great way to use up some scraps.

WOW, Rox! I'm totally case-ing your cards! I can't wait to get home and try this. I have the ribbon stamps in your first card but haven't used them yet. I will now!

jw, there are two more cards that use the ribbon stamp which come up on the same page as the first card in my gallery, so check them out for ideas. I entered them in the Hero Arts contest but didn't win. There's more ideas at this site in case you haven't seen it yet.
http://www.heroarts.com/community/co...m?season=SP-05
Then click on Hero Arts in the upper left hand corner for even more ideas.
Thanks for the compliment and happy stamping!
Rox

I just received the cutest card with a weaved background, but the strips were wavy. I'm having a bit of a mental block with this one because the strips aren't the same width. Is there a special tool or technique to achieve this effect?

TIA!

I can help you with that one. I've done it a few times but I don't think I have any in my gallery. You take the cardstock and cut lines with a knife across or up and down to make the waves but not both ways! Then you take strips of paper and weave them through the slits and secure on each end. Simple as that and if you don't understand just let me know and I'll try to help you.

Default Stencils too...

I happened to see these stencils while surfing for stamps. Their name for the weaving technique is Papuela.

Your welcome and I didn't remember that the card I linked on my earlier post here is done in the same manner just with straight lines. This is an old thread but I love when they come alive again!

GarnetJ, I've been known to spend a lot of time on one card but I think it would take me a week to do those beautiful weaves you linked. Wouldn't it be great to get those in a die cut! I'd have to frame one of those, their really special. By the way, you do find some great links!
