I hope you’ll enjoy these Five Ways to Use Washi Tape generously shared with us by Kivonne.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.   I love the colors, costumes, and giving out candy to the trick and treaters.   I am so excited about Stampin’ Up!’s Glitter Washi Tape!   Glitter Washi Tape is found on page 57 in the July-December Mini Catalog.   It’s been a while since we have had this product and I wanted to show you some different ways to create cards with this beautiful glittery washi tape.

Five Ways to Use Washi Tape to Create Halloween Cards

Washi Tape Group

Punch

  • Take a small piece of 3×3 thick basic white card stock.
  • Add the glitter washi tape to the cardstock at an angle.  I use my silicone craft pad to help me out.
  • Once you finish taping your cardstock, cut off all the overhang of washi tape.
  • Put the cover basic white into the Witch Hat Builder Punch. Punch out the witch’s hat.
  • Assemble the card

Yes, my witch’s hat moves.  It’s attached with a small wobble (non-Stampin’ Up). Remember to decorate the inside of the card and your envelope

Die Cut

  • Do the same steps as above but put the washi tape on the basic white card stock in a straight line.
  • Use the Stampin’ emboss & cut machine to die cut your image.
  • Assemble the card

On DSP

  • I wanted straight lines as a background for the DSP (Designer Series Paper).   (You can also use washi in diagonal lines).  Cut off the overhang.
  • Assemble card

Frame

  • 3 ½” x 4 ¼” piece of Basic White
  • Take the glitter purple washi tape and make a frame around the end of the cardstock.
  • Assemble the card

Background

  • Took a piece of Black & White Designs DSP and added glitter washi tape
  • Cut off the overlap.
  • Assemble the card

I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects and the different ways to use Washi Tape. I also hope you’ll be inspired to create your own projects with this beautiful glittery tape!

Flowers of Friendship St. Patrick’s Day Card

Flowers of Friendship St. Pat's Lead

This year is flying by! Can you believe it’s already March and almost time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?! Today’s card is designed to bring you a little luck of the Irish using the Flowers of Friendship Bundle and A Wish for Everything stamp set.

No shamrocks, no problem!

I couldn’t find a single shamrock stamp in either of our current catalogs. But I did find a stamp and punch to make lucky four-leaf clovers. And, if you prefer a three-leaf shamrock, you can trim out one of the petals, and it works perfectly.

It’s Ok to be Square

This card starts with a Garden Green card base of 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. I scored at 4 1/4″ to create a square card that will still fit in a regular medium envelope.

Next, I cut a Basic White panel 3 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I placed a 1/2 strip across the bottom right corner and trimmed to fit. Next, I glued a 4″ length of Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the Garden Green strip and secured it on the back.

Details

The circles are cut using the Layering Circles Dies and the now retired (sorry) Stitched Shapes. But don’t worry, you can use the same size die from the Layering Circles. I stamped the greeting with Garden Green Ink and adhered it to the card front with Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped and punched the four-leaf clovers (aka flowers) in Garden Green on Garden Green. I adhered these with mini Dimensionals and glue to the card front.

Finally, I finished off with a little bling using the Gilded Gems.

Last Day for Sale-a-bration!!

Today is the last day of Sale-a-bration, and your last chance to get this beautiful Friendly Hello Bundle FREE with a qualifying purchase. This bundle comes with the stamp set below AND a beautiful package of DSP (Designer Series Paper). You can see the paper by clicking on the bundle in the product links at the end of this post.

Friendly Hello Book Fold Lead

Friendly Hello Book Fold

This type of fold is so named because the left side of the card has a “spine”. This is made by making an extra score line on the front of the card and sealing that small section to the back of the card, so the card only opens from the score line out.

I used Pool Party and Fresh Freesia cardstock and paper from the Friendly Hello bundle. I notched the top and bottom center of the “spine” using the edge of the Tailored Tag Punch to keep my ribbon in place.

The Details

I stamped the bird with flowers in Shaded Spruce on Basic White and carefully colored with Blends. Next, I cut it out using a die from the Hippo & Friends Die Set. Even if you don’t care for the bundle, these dies are worth getting.

This was layered onto a smooth circle of Fresh Freesia and a scalloped circle of Pool Party using the Layering Circles dies. I added a sprinkling of In-Color jewels to finish it off.

The Inside

I stamped the Basic White Inside with Shaded Spruce and colored carefully with Blends. The reason I say I colored CAREFULLY – Blends are alcohol markers and will smear water-based inks, so I try not to color over the stamped lines.
