Hello, Altenew fans.
Did you see the new washi tapes that were released on Tuesday? The Storybook Fantasy Washi Tape Bundle is composed of the Cool Summer Night Slim Washi Tape and the Aurora Borealis Washi Tape. Both are stunning and perfect for easy projects.
Project 1: Thanks Card
- Take some patterned paper. I used a 6*6 sheet from Summer Garden 6*6 Paper Pack. Place the paper in the embossing folder with about two inches sticking out. This section will not be embossed. Run the embossing folder through your machine. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for embossing folders.
- Place a strip of Aurora Borealis Washi Tape under the embossed surface and adhere another strip onto some scrap paper.
- Create a sentiment by using the Bold Thanks Die Set. Place the letters on the washi adhered to the scrap paper and run it through your die cut machine. Add your sentiment to the card.
Clean and simple looks are my favorite but you can add some embellishments if you want more detail. Sequins, enamel dots, or jewels will do the trick. What are your go-to embellishments for projects?
Project 2: Crafty Friends Are The Best
This is probably my favorite card of all three. I adhered alternating strips of Cool Summer Night Slim Washi Tape onto some smooth white cardstock and then used the Halftone Circles Dies to cut out three circle shapes in three sizes.
I popped the circles on the card base using foam squares and added my sentiment which is from the Halftone Circles Stamp Set. For some extra detail, I used Cool Summer Night Enamel Dots.
Details come not only from embellishments but can also consist of angles and the variation of them. This card is a perfect example of the combination of geometric shapes and lines.
The slim washi tapes are great for creating borders and I have used this technique on my scrapbook layouts so thought it would be fun to try on a card.
This colored floral image from Happy Bloom Stamp Set was lying on my desk and waiting to be used on a card. I chose a patterned paper from the Summer Garden 6*6 Paper Pack and created a border with a strip of washi. It frames the image beautifully.
How do you like to use washi tapes? I am always looking for new ideas so please.
