  1. I love this idea. I have used a similar idea but mine were all different shapes and I made a collage. I like this better b/c it’s not so uneven. It still looks polished. And I love the white pigment ink over the paper. Great video !! Thanks, JM!

  2. Love this idea, especially using stamp over the top. It is always great to get new ideas for scraps.

  3. What a great idea! I should be able to make a zillion cards with my HUGE scrap stash! Thanks for another terrific idea!!

  4. Funny you should post this video! I just finished making some cards for the card drive (sending cards to soldiers in Ukraine) and used this technique for some backgrounds. Instead of what you did, I just cut strips of yellow and blue paper and stuck then down at an angle with a big sentiment on top. Easy and relatively quick background — especially since I was making multiples. Thanks for showing how to step this up a bit.

  5. Love this idea, especially using the larger block pieces. All the stamping on top adds such an interesting dimension. Thanks for the inspiration! You always come up with such brilliant ideas.
