Scrappy Strip Technique

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I am sharing a scrappy strip techqnique. I’m quite sure that this technique was pioneered by Bruno Bertucci from Australia. His card totally captured my heart so I cased it. Bruno’s card is also the one that made me fall in love even more with the Desert Details stamp set. My Tuesday Stories and Stamps YouTube video featured this card and I will share it in this blog post as well.


Scrappy Trip Technique Card with Desert Details


Scrappy Strip technique using Desert Details suite from Stampin'Up!


Taking the Party Inside


I especially love the look of the inside of the card. You use the same technique as for the outside of the card except you have the strips going the long way down the cardstock base. See the photo below. After you have covered your cardstock piece, turn it 90 degrees and cut into half inch strips. Just beautiful!!


Scrappy strip tip for the inside of your card.


The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed in white. The big flower was stamped in Cajun Craze and it looks great either stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock or Very Vanilla.

Desert Details:  An Unexpected Surprise


When I first saw the Desert Details stamp set I was quite honestly underwhelmed. I thought to myself, now that is one set that I don’t need to buy. Well! Then I went on my team retreat and my friend Pat had made a card with this set. I was so impressed with the long narrow graphic stamps that I just had to have it. Now that I have inked it up, it has not disappointed!!

Not only are those geometric stamps very impressive, the flowers are also stunning. They are distINKtive stamps which mean they naturally stamp in different shades of the same colour. Let’s take a look at two cards that I have made with this set.


Two Fun Cards


My first card was inspired by Sara Douglass and Shelli Gardner at OnStage in Vienna. With some simple masking you get an amazing geometric design on your card front. Want to know how I did it? Just watch the video tutorial below.


Desert Details Masking Technique Card


Cajun Craze and Soft Succulent look great together don’t they? That linen thread and those enamel dots essentials finish it off perfectly. The enamel dots come in night of navy, crumb cake and white. Here is a closeup.

There is actually a part two to this video. In the first part you see me showing all the stamps and dies and also how to do the masking technique. In the second video you see me making the actual card.
