Faux Washi Tape Technique

DSCN3203

Here's a fun card my customers enjoyed recently...the technique is called Faux Washi Tape!

Here's how you do it -

  • take a piece of typing weight paper and cut little strips out of it with your paper cutter
  • tear the ends on each strip
  • use the typing weight paper as a template and lay it on your cardstock to stamp small images in
  • while keeping the template in place - sponge color over your stamped images
  • waaaa laaaa - super cool!

I loved using this technique to make Faux Washi tape in the colors I wanted for my card.  Super easy!

Now for the sad news....the Happy Watercolor stamp set retires on June1st - yep...it's in the Occasions Mini Catalog so it's the last chance to order this beautiful stamp set!!!

DSCN3201

The stamps I used in my washi tape are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (Wood 130514 - Clear 130517) Here's a close up of the technique:

  • You can sign up as a demonstrator for a reduced price and (because you'll be a new demonstrator) you will receive free convention registration!
  • A Free paper-pumpkin kit will also be included in the starter kit.

  • All starter kit orders must be finalized by June 30, 2014.

And there's MORE:

  • When you join my TEAM - you'll get to participate in our exclusive monthly meetings - available to all my demonstrators - where we learn from live demonstrations, business ideas, door prizes, recognition and make-n-takes!
  • You'll have access to the Stampin' Up! card gallery and question/answer forums.

And now for a fun project!!!!  At my next team meeting - June 1st - my members will be making a sampling of all of these notecards featuring the NEW IN-COLORS!!!

I used the precut/prescored Notecards & Envelope pack for these cuties.  These notecards come in a pack of 20 - they are fabulous!!!

All the cards feature the WORK OF ART stamp set...one of the fantastic sets we were able to PREORDER as demonstrators.  This set comes with 11 different images in clear (134114 - $21.95) and wood (134111 - $29.95).

Don't MISS IT!!! 3 Cards...1 Set!

DSCN3791

Here's a stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog that's a DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH!!!  I had so much fun making these three cards with it.  I love it when you can take one stamp set and create so many different looks with it - THIS SET IS THE BOMB!!!  I'm really super sad to see this retire...it's only available until June 1st!!!  Sniff Sniff

DSCN3786

Collage cards are fun to make...anything goes! I used Crumb Cake & Marina Mist cardstock and ink on this one.

DSCN3787

Here's a fun card that I found on the internet (Jan Tinklenberg) and loved the color combination.  I stamped the flowers and then stamped again without reinking to get the ligher flowers.  Pool Party & Real Red ink and cardstock were used here.

DSCN3789

And then we have this hilarious little jewel...Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay & Pumpkin pie make this super fun!
