Washi Tape is in the House

I was recently asked to be a guest blogger at the Pink Paper Bakery.  I thought I’d share a new product that Stampin’ Up! just started offering — washi tape!  I was so excited when I saw that this would be included with the new This & That product offering.   As soon as I received my package on Friday, I was already thinking of how I wanted to use it.

I made a couple of cards with it, that I’ll share with you today.  On this first card, I also used the Epic Day dsp and the Epic Day Designer Stickers.  I love how everything in this bundle coordinates with each other.

Washi Tape Card 1

I started by spritzing the Very Vanilla card base with my Basic Gray marker using the Color Spritzer Tool.  I then applied a strip of each of the three washi tape rolls diagonally across the card.  I then made the paper flower using the Fancy Flower punch.  I punched out two flowers using the Epic Day dsp.  For the top layer of the flower, I used my paper snips to cut from one petal to the center of the flower (see picture below):

I then put some adhesive on the flower petal next to the cut, and placed the other flower petal on top of it, making it a four petal flower.  I punched another flower using the newsprint paper, and scrunched it up and stuck a brad in the middle.  I placed one of the stickers from the Epic Day Designer Sticker pack on some Daffodil Delight card stock and cut it out and adhered it to the card base with dimensionals.

For the second card, I made a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and applied Washi tape over the panel.  I then made a flower using the Blossom punch and Creped Filter Paper.  I spritzed the card base with a Basic Gray marker again, and then adhered my washi tape panel with the flower and banners.  I added some rhinestones for added interest.

I can’t wait to play with this washi tape some more!  It is so easy to use and it’s so fun.

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love both of these Amy. They really stand out. I’ve been trying to figure out how I was going to incorporate washi tape into my card projects. Yours are elegant and really stand out in a stunning way. The perfect way to showcase the new product line. Thanks!

  2. I just found your blog when I saw the second card on Stampinconnection and I can’t stop browsing – there’s so much inspiration here. I totally love your style and color choices (pool party is my absolute favourite colour :-)). Thanks very much for sharing your creativity.
