Herringbone Technique with Stampin’ Up! Washi Tape

herringbone-washi

The herringbone technique with Stampin’ Up! washi tape looks complicated, but it’s pretty easy.  The four or five rolls of tape in a bundle all coordinate well to make a great pattern of color.  BTW – if you are looking for a way to store your washi tape check out THIS POST. And as a bonus the washi tape is a perfect width for this technique so you only have to cut the ends:)

Here is a quick description if you haven’t tried this technique before:

Add strips of Designer Series Paper or washi tape in this fashion making four triangle areas.  Start by adding the longest piece.

herringbone-one

Fill each quadrant in using an “L” shape pattern as shown in the left quadrant with two more strips.

herringbone-two

Then add two more as shown below:

Continue to fill until the entire area is covered and then move on to the next.

More about this card:  For the greeting I used the single stamp Halloween Treats.  I actually stamped it three times.  The first time I stamped it in Pumpkin Pie, then Basic Black and finally Perfect Plum.  I cut the whole Pumpkin Pie image out – trimming carefully around the edge of the image.  Then I clipped the Happy Halloween and spiders from the Basic Black image and added it to the Pumpkin Pie one with Glue Dots.  I repeated this process with the Perfect Plum for the Trick or Treat portion of the image.  For the Halloween Night Baker’s Twine I wrapped it around my fingers several times and then tied it off with a loop of twine.  Then I attached it to the card using Glue Dots.

For the inside of this card I used an extra strip of the bat metallic washi tape along a piece of Whisper White card stock.  You know how much I like to make sure you can easily write on the inside of your card AND make the inside coordinate with the outside.
