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!

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Card

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Card

Today I’m using the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for my project, and I have step by step instructions for you!

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Card

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

This set of masks has six different patterns. There are three with flowers and butterflies that layer together, and three that have pretty background patterns. I used the one in the top left, the bottom center and the bottom right for today’s card.

Butterflies & Flowers Masks

Step One

First, I took a quarter sheet of Basic White Cardstock and secured it with masking tape to my work surface. Be sure to reduce the tackiness of the tape before putting it on your cardstock. I knew I would cut my panel and didn’t need the edges, so I didn’t worry about this.

Next, secure the stencil over your white cardstock. I used the larger set of flowers. You can see them in the very bottom right of the picture above. I used my blending brushes to gently add Pale Papaya ink to the two larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo to the two smaller ones. Because these are similar colors, I didn’t worry about covering up the larger flowers. I thought it was okay for the colors to blend a little. Remove the mask.

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Step 1

Step Two

I turned the mask around to line up the detailed flowers on the other end. It’s easiest to line this up by looking at the two smaller flowers. I secured this and used my Blending Brushes to add the same colors to the same flowers – Pale Papaya on the larger flowers and Flirty Flamingo on the smaller flowers. Again, I didn’t worry about overlapping color. Remove the mask.

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Step 2

Step Three

Using the other mask with flowers and leaves, I lined the leaves up with my flowers. Don’t look at the two cut out flowers. They are flowers for other projects. Just look through the mask and you’ll see where the leaves go. Since this is a totally different color, I did NOT want this color to blend, so I used a piece of scrap paper and bits of the tape to cover any areas that I thought I might accidently hit. I learned this by experience. You can see in my photo below that I hit my flower with green ink. I actually had to start over. Use your Blending Brushes to add Pear Pizzazz ink to the leaves. Remove mask.

Butterflies & Flowers Masks Step 3

The Finished Product

I cut out my flowers using a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies set. But I had so much fun with the masks that I decided to add the vines to a background piece. I used the vine stencil and Pear Pizzazz ink to add interest to the Pear Pizzazz panel. I also used the same stencil used for the leaves to add a flower to the inside of my card.

I finished off this card with words from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set, a Pale Papaya bow and Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with the Flirty Flamingo Blends.

Let’s Set Sail Simple Easel

Let's Set Sail Lead

It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop and today’s hop is all about Heat Embossing. I used the Let’s Set Sail bundle to make my project.

Let’s Set Sail

The Let’s Set Sail Bundle comes with the stamp set and coordinating Sailboat Builder Punch. The punch cuts out the sailboat and sails. It’s such a darling bundle and the punch makes it so easy to create the cute little sailboat.

Embossing the Sea

You may be wondering what I’ve embossed on this card. Actually, this is an idea I’ve had in the back of my mind for some time. My original idea was to use the Birch stamp to emboss on some of our DSP (Designer Series Paper) that didn’t have foiling to add a little pizzazz. And I still plan to try that!

But for this project, I masked off the top of a Basic White panel and used our Blending Brushes to add Balmy Blue to the panel. I then added Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the panel.

Next, I took the Birch stamp and used it to stamp with VersaMark over the still masked panel. I removed the mask and embossed with silver embossing powder. This panel was then cut using a die from the Scalloped Contours Die set.

Let's Set Sail Background

Putting it all together

This panel was added to a slightly larger Real Red panel, and then adhered with Dimensionals to a Misty Moonlight panel that has White Faux Linen ribbon across one corner. Next, the Misty Moonlight layer was adhered to a panel the same size as my card front.

Simple Easel

It’s so easy to make a simple easel card! For this one, I simply scored the front of my Balmy Blue card base horizontally across the center, then adhered the layered panel (same size as my card front) ONLY to the bottom half of the card front. When you open and fold on the scored line, the card will become an easel.

The Basic White card “stop” (the piece that holds the card open) was stamped with Misty Moonlight and cut with the smallest die from the Scalloped Contours Die set. It was attached with Dimensionals to the card base, and birds were added with Misty Moonlight ink.

Details

Before assembling the card, I stamped and punched the sailboat using Soft Suede and Real Red inks on Basic White, stamped the shadow under the boat with Balmy Blue, and added Misty Moonlight birds. The boat is glued to the card, and the sails are attached with Dimensionals for depth.

Finally, I added silver epoxy dots from the Silver and Clear Epoxy Essentials embellishment pack.
