#scrappystriptechnique card with Stampin' Up! Ornate Thanks Stamp Set

Hello!  I hope you've had a wonderful day!  I just saw that the Amazing Kylie Bertucci posted a #scrappystriptechnique card challenge on her Facebook page.  This technique is the brainchild of Bruno Bertucci, Kylie's husband.  If you haven't watched Bruno's video on how to do this technique, click here!  This is a super fun way to use up extra cardstock or DSP scraps you have on hand!

On this first card I used Bruno's technique.  The hard part on this is leaving an equal amount of black background on all of the strips.  The colors I used were Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  My scrappy strip panel is 3 3/4" x 5" and was mounted on a 4" x 5 1/4" Basic Black matt and then added to a Melon Mambo Cardbase. The sentiments from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set was stamped in Melon Mambo and Perfect Peacock onto Whisper White and then cut with one of the small Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I added a little Snail and then looped some Whisper White Twine on the lower right side of the card and then popped the sentiment over it with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish this one off,  I colored 3 Gold Glitter Enamel Dots with my Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend Marker and added those to the Card Front.  I love the way this one turned out so I decided to make a second one...

For the second card, I put the cardstock pieces against each other and didn't leave the open area in between.  What do you think??

Instead of leaving the open areas with the black background, I added strips of black.  I used the same colors on this one as the first one.  I added two stitched circles cut from the Stiched Shapes Dies.  The thank you sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical Bundle and the flowers and leaves were cut from the dies in that bundle as well.  I also fun the panel with the Stitched Rectangles dies as well as a stitched rectangle matt and put it on a Basic Black Cardbase.  Which do you like better?  I really love them both!
