What do you do with washi tape? It’s a question I get a lot and the answer truly is: use it anywhere you might use a ribbon or strip of paper. Washi, tissue, paper tape – whatever you want to call it you can use it all about the same. There’s nothing to think about – love that! Realize it or not – you’ve seen me use it a lot during this class. Today I want to spotlight one of my absolute favorite things to do – using it together in a die cut shape! The simple card above was made by:
1. Taking a doodlebug card and stamping/embossing it with clear embossing powder. THEN rub brown distress ink all over, wipe away excess.
2. Edge hearts with gold paint, then adhere hearts to card.
3. Add word sentiments to hearts.
4. Coat hearts in Glossy Accents.
5. Mist entire front of card with perfect pearls mist.
It really is that easy!
I will tell you how I made my hearts in more detail.
1. Cover a piece of grungeboard with strips of tape – don’t worry about any excess. Note: I cut my grungeboard to approximately the size of my card front to reduce waste. You can do this with cardstock or another thinner material – but I wanted dimension and for my hearts to be really sturdy.
2. Apply a thin coating of multi-medium in matte finish to seal tape. This will make it so that your tape won’t lift, separate, or otherwise come apart when you go to die cut.
3. Die cut into desired shapes
4. Go forth and play! Use on whatever project you would like and have fun.
This is entirely too much fun – and a great way to make use of tapes! I hope you enjoyed this project, and that you have a happy (crafty) weekend!
