Diecut Wide Washi Tape Stickers by Jean Okimoto

P1000045

Memory Box and Poppystamps dies create unique washi tape stickers for any project  Add them to cards, giftbags, tags, party favors or decor for color-coordinated accents with a very strong adhesive.

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with 2 easy summer cards.  I use a lot of labels, sticker sheets and laminates - I'll have a stash of of the liner sheets if I save them.

P1000038

Attach Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi Tape to a recycled liner sheet from address labels.  Cut it with the Poppystamps Thank You Stitched Tag. Cut the Poppystamps Grosgrain Bow and the tag's "thank you"  from pale peach cardstock.  Attach everything to a side-folded blue 5 x 3 ½" notecard.  

Cut the middle-sized Geodesic Oval from the washi tape too.  Cut the Geodesic Oval again from natural white cardstock - we're using the frame. Place the smallest Poppystamps Flora Bloom in the 2 ¼" Flora Blooms Solids die.  Cut natural cardstock with the double-die. Color a light-colored Delicate Pastel glitter cardstock sheet with a marker.  Let the ink dry, then punch ¼" circles.  Cut a scrap of it to fit behind the circles in the diecut flower.

Stamp the greeting from the Peony Garden Corner Clear Stamps on natural cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair.  Attach the Geodesic Oval, Flora Blooms and greeting to a top-folded A2 card of Coral Cream cardstock.  Add the glitter dots.

Copic Peony
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_2544

Greetings friends.  Do you have a favorite flower?  For me, it is the peony.  I think they are absolutely stunning.  Therefore, I was really excited to see the new Memory Box stamp sets.  I don't know if I have ever seen a peony in the orange color I used, but I decided to color my flower to match the washi tape. 

To make the card, I used both the wide and 1" version of the Cornelia Aqua washi tape. I took a piece of white cardstock and then placed a strip of the wide and a strip of the narrow onto the paper at an angle.  I then cut the piece down to layer onto a blue card.  I also cut out my "celebrate" in the same color of blue.

For my flower, I used the following Copic colors:

IMG_2548

My favorite paper to use with Copic markers is the XPress It Blending Cardstock.  It is a bit slicker than other cardstocks, and I find it easier than others to blend the markers.  I stamped the flower and leaves with black Memento ink and die cut out all of my pieces.  I started with the lightest color of ink and then added each of the darker colors.  Here is a close up of the coloring:

Create a Wide Washi Tape Background Border by Jean Okimoto

Layer the Cascadia Background Strip over the Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi Tape to create a bold border for the Splendid Poppy Stems.  The washi tape has so many pretty colors  it's easy to find matching inks for the poppies.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with more designs from our Garden Party Collection.

Cut Splendid Poppy Stems from the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Give it a light spritz of water to help blend the inks, then sponge it with Distress Oxides. The colors used here are carved pumpkin, worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade and mowed lawn.

Cut a 3-¾" x 5-⅝" rectangle of smooth white cardstock.  Cut it with the new Cascadia Background Strip.  Attach a strip of Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi Tape to printer paper -  it's lighter than cardstock and the edges won't show under the rectangle.  Attach it behind the rectangle.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Peony Garden Corner Clear Stamps and Die Set - with VersaFine Clair Shady Lane.

Attach everything to a white A-6 card.  Add ¼" punched circles of yellow glitter cardstock from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.  Accent the flowers with Open Studio Sour Apple Glitter Glue.

I love the pretty mix of blue and orange flowers on the Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi Tape. It's fresh and different - and looks like it'll be a great match for the new speckled egg Distress Oxide inkpad.  

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend!

Stylish Rectangle Trio and 11” of Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape by Jean Okimoto

 P1150460 2
Make three friendship cards with the Stylish Rectangle Trio and just 11" of Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape.  Eleven wasn't a magic number - it's just the cardstock length.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - hope it's the start of a creative weekend for you.

P1150435 2

Here's a tip - that bright blue piece stuck to the tape is a strip of a thin kitchen cutting board.  It keeps the tape from wrinkling and sticking to itself.  It's also a great edge to tear the tape.  And the flat area keeps the tape from rolling away, off the desk and onto the floor!

Attach Sunset Rose Wide Washi Tape to pink cardstock and cut the Stylish Rectangle Trio.  

Stamp the greetings - from the Wild Rose Stem Clear Stamps and Die Set - on natural white cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then cut the cardstock with dies from the Rectangle Basics set. Cut the "THANKS for always being there" strip with a larger die, then trim the excess from the bottom edge.

P1150439

Washi tapes often have a waxy surface that won't work with some adhesives.  Here's a tip ...before attaching the washi tape diecut to the card, cut and remove some of the washi tape with the smallest Rectangle Basics die.  Attach the foam tape to the card itself.  Attach the greeting strip to the foam tape.

Cut coordinating accent strips from the brown and dark green Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 prints.  Cut strips from the pink and dark teal Cottage and Stripes and Dots 6x6 prints.  

Attach the pieces to A-6 and A-2 cards of natural white cardstock.  Cut hexagon accents with the Honeycomb Square and green glitter cardstock from the Twinkling Jewel 6x6 Glitter Pad.

There are many ways to use the new Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape - it's great on peach or yellow cardstock too.  Try different cardstock colors and other sections of the washi tape.  The print repeats about every 14 inches - lots of tape for all of your projects!

Thanks for visiting...hope you're enjoying the cards we've created to keep you inspired during these challenging times...

Love
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0853

Hello everyone! Today I have a mixed media type of card for you.  I used washi tape to create the flowers and the leaves for the card and a piece of patterned paper for the vase. So let's begin.

The first thing I did was to adhere a piece of the Rose Bouquet wide washi tape to white cardstock. Next I picked the flowers and the leaves I wanted to use and cut them out.

IMG_0840

Next I chose a piece of patterned paper that I wanted to use for the vase and die cut it from the rectangle die set.  

I used a piece of the new watercolor paper for my background and laid out my design. 

IMG_0842

I made a light pencil line for my table and proceded to watercolor the background.  I wanted a very fluid look for the watercolor so I watered down my paint. 

IMG_0843

Once I was happy with the background I used matt medium to glue down my vase, leaves and flowers.

I used copic markers to add some shading to the flowers and leaves.  Next I used a fine black marker to outline the leaves and flowers to define them. Then I used a white marker to add a higlight to the vase.  

Next I used a stencil and sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink to add some interest to the table and the background. I used a light touch for this.  I only wanted a hint of color.

IMG_0852

The next thing I did was spatter the background with several colors of paint and some gold ink. I might of got a little carried away with the spatters.

IMG_0854

To finish the card I die cut the word Love from gold metallic cardstock and glued that to my card front.  I used foam tape to adhere this to a white cardbase.

I hope you enjoyed this card today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The new Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape makes it easy to create cards for any occasion.  Add a quick greeting and some Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad dots and your card is done!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a fresh floral design from our 2020 Spring Collection.

Attach Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape to pale peach cardstock and diecut the smallest and second-largest flowers from the Birch Press Design Vivid Bloom Stitched Layer Set.  Diecutting the tape ensures clean, crisp edges  - and a delicate stitched pattern to match the green background rectangle.

Here's a tip I learned from Dave Brethauer...attach something to the torn or cut edge of wide washi tape. It keeps the end visible and minimizes wrinkling when you're using it.  It can also be used as a straight edge to tear the tape. I use strips of those lightweight kitchen cutting mats from the dollar store or Ikea.

Cut green cardstock with the 2.1" x 3.3" Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die.  Pressure-emboss the inner rectangle with the 1.6" x 2.8" die.  

Stamp "greetings" - from the Sunflower Wreath Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne. Attach the pieces to a side-folded white A2 card.  Add ¼" punched circles of the green sheet from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

Hope you'll add a roll of this beautiful floral tape to your stash.  Its soft watercolored look will enhance any card and it's great layered over different shades of cardstock.  I like it best layered over medium shades - not too light, not too dark.

I'll be using the Stitched Bloom Set I bought for a lot of my classes too.  It's a classic, versatile design that's perfect for any occasion and coordinates with all of the stitched dies in my stash.

Join us for the BRIGHTER DAYS AHEAD class at Impress if you're in the Seattle area and have a holiday on Monday.  We'll be using the Whittles, Scribbles and Stacking Dies from Poppystamps, Memory Box and Birch Press Design - AND a lot of the just-released items from our 2020 Spring Collection.  Enjoy the 10% class shopping  discount - it'll be a great time to save on everything you want from our latest release.

Attach a pair of the new Banded Heart Lockets to the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Outs on a Valentine for your special guy.  Cool, masculine grays and bright reds create a crisp contrast on today's card.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design to start the workweek.  Change the colors and make it a shower, wedding or anniversary card too!

Cut Banded Heart Locket from gray and white cardstock.  Cut two hearts with the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out dies - 2.2" wide from red glittered cardstock and 3.1" wide from the Poppystamps Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape attached to gray cardstock.  It's the perfect washi tape for snow,  confetti or white splattered dots - whatever you need!

Punch a ⅛" hole near the top of the large heart.  Attach the glittered heart to the large heart with doublestick tape.  Attach the white and gray Banded Heart Lockets with gold cord.  Curl the cord.

Pressure-emboss a folded white A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") with the 3.1" Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  It creates an outline on the front of the card - and frames the greeting on the inside.  Stamp "xoxo" - from the Big and Little Valentines Clear Stamps - with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair in the embossed heart inside the card.

Cut accent strips - ¾" x 3-½" of the gray plaid from the Dashing Holiday 6x6 set, ¾" x 4" of gray cardstock and ¾" x 3-¼" of the dark gray stripes from the Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 set.  Attach the hearts and strips to a white A-6 (4-½" x6-¼") card.

Here's an easy way to prep a self-adhesive greeting.  Diecut Love Airy Script from red cardstock - don't remove the diecut or the offcut.  Place three strips of ⅛" ScorTape or Couture Creations tape horizontally across the back of the diecut.   Run it through the machine again to cut the tape - leave it in the die again.  Flip it over onto the card and use a pokey tool to push the self-adhesive greeting onto the card.  The double cutting process makes it easier to cut completely thru the tape and its liner.  Pressing the delicate greeting directly onto the card keeps it intact, without any distortion or wonkiness.

It seems like 2020 just started - but January's almost gone!  Hope our Design Team's Valentine ideas have helped and inspired you to create special cards for your sweeties.
