Today’s card doesn’t use the PPPST! Can you believe it? Instead I’m using another popular technique. This is my first try at the Scrappy Strip Technique. I used the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets. I colored in the image using Stampin’ Blends Markers, then cut it into strips. And I cut the sentiment using the Classic Label Punch. 

PPPST = Paper Piecing Press n Seal Technique

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Gorgeous Grape card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 4-3/4″ x 3-7/8″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ (*after floral image was stamped, I cut the layer into strips as shown)
  • Basic Black CS cut to 2-1/2″ x 7/16″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Ornate Style stamp set:

  • floral image in tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the Whisper White CS layer*

Stamped with the Ornate Thanks stamp set:

  • front sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • inner sentiment in Seaside Spray ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • front sentiment

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • both ends of the Basic Black CS strip, to mat the front sentiment

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • floral image in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Old Olive, Seaside Spray, and So Saffron
  • Note: I used different colors in each strip.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • colored strips glued onto the Basic Black CS layer, about 1/16″ apart
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • front sentiment glued onto the Basic Black CS strip
  • blue twine pulled out of a piece of blue/white/silver twine, then tied around the sentiment and tied in a bow
  • front sentiment glued onto the strips
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Here’s what I would do differently:

I’m not sure why I thought I needed to cut all the strips into triangles with sharp points. When I look at other Scrappy Strip cards I’ve seen lately, I realize their strips have four edges instead of 3. I think that would make it much easier to line up the pieces.
