If you are a follower on Pinterest and love to search Stampin' Up! idea's then you might have seen this cool technique in your feed. I'm talking about the Drapery Technique. This cool technique is so easy and fun to do and the best part is there are many different variations out there!!
At our last technique class, I showed the ladies how to do this technique using the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper. The really neat thing about this technique is that it's designed to show off designer series paper!!
When I was designing this class, I decided that I wanted to showcase the Retiring Incolours and the retiring Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.
Did you know that Stampin' Up! listed the coordinating colours on the back of the cardboard that comes with the designer series paper packs? I first picked my pattern paper and then pulled the colours from there. I used the following colour combination on my project today!!
Come create with me and give the Drapery Technique a try!
Horizontal Drapery – cut paper at 3 by 7 ¾, using a Simply Score tool, score at 3, 3 ½, 5, 6. Turn a put a small pencil mark at 1 ½ (across the 3” side). Use Stampin' Trimmer to diagonal Cut from the 1 1/2" mark to the 3" score line. Fold back and forth at each score line - like a fan fold. Adhere to card front and trim off excess paper.
Vertical Drapery – cut paper at 3 by 6, using a Simply score Tool, score at ¾, 1, 1 ¾. 2, 2 ¾, 3, 3 ¾, 4, and follow the same directions as above.
At each of my technique classes, we always make 2 cards using the same technique and we go home with a references card. This way you always have the direction to make the technique again along with a sample to refresh your memory on what it looked liked.
Interesting in taking a class? You can check out all my classes here. I will be updating and adding more classes when I get back from the Cruise.
Curious to know what products on used on this project, you can view them all on the supply list below. The good news is the that Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Builder framelits are carrying over into the new book!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
