Happy Washi Wednesday! Hope everyone is having a fantastic day.
Today marks the first card in my new washi tape card series. I took a card I had made previously and put in my shop and revamped it for the upcoming Halloween holiday. I used an image from the newest Cricut cartridge Potions and Spells for my greeting on the front of the card (love the images on that cartridge by the way). I made my card base in Design Space also since I was cutting the image though you could skip this step and just cut it with a paper trimmer and fold it in half. The green words were cut out in outdoor vinyl (Oracal 651) to make assembly easier and save the need to attach the letters separately. I inked the edges of both the card and the rectangle in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink and stamped a Stampabilities spider web in the corner. The Halloween washi tape I chose were from Queen & Co. (not sure if they are still available), the orange and purple were both from a Peachy Cheap offer and the white Beware tape is a dollar bin (Studio G?) tape from Joann’s. I finished it off with some tiny spiders from an older Close to My Heart set of woodblock stamps called Spinning Spider, a bling spider from Hobby Lobby and my favorite Wink of Stella pen.

My growing collection of washi tape.
Today is Washi Tape Wednesday and I don’t have a project to show you but I thought I would show you my ever growing collection of washi tapes. I just love finding new and more colorful tapes though I’m starting to buy tapes for particular projects since I have so many. Currently my collection sits at about 187 tapes. Some of those as you can see are actually duplicates so the actual number of different tapes isn’t as big.
You may ask how you use them. I love to use them on my cards, to decorate envelopes or just about anything that you can think of that needs a little color. Washi tape (sometimes called paper tape) is a lot like painters tape in that in most cases it is removable and repositionable but it sticks and stays where you want it too. My current favorites are a couple purple ones I got from Washi Mall. She carries several different patterns and colors and often runs specials on her tape. I love her shop and even though she ships from Singapore the rates are reasonable and they arrive quickly. If you’re looking for a great deal, check her out. She is awesome! Continue reading
