Pinterest Inspiration - Washi TapeOur challenge this month was to look at our pinterest feed and pick a project to try and maybe inspire you to try a new technique.
I have been using pinterest for awhile now and have been obsessed with finding projects for my washi tape. I have lots of it and it lasts forever but I really love the effects of washi tape and so it pops up on my pinterest feed all the time. I thought you may be interested in a technique that popped up on my pinterest this week. I also have been obsessed with using what I have as well as buying all the new products so this project is highlighting the use of old products and how they match beautifully with new products.
This was a really simple card but used lots of simple techniques. The card stock I used was Seaglass and Raspberry and cut them at 5 1/4" x 4" and 5" x 3 3/4". I then cut some white card stock at 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" . The washi tape I chose was some thin Thistle and Blossom that I had in my stock and added it with Everday Washi Tape Z3211, which is on sale at the moment. I placed the washi tape randomly on the edge of the card stock and then folded it over so it gave a nice edge. Once I had done that I placed the card stock into my embossing machine - Cuttlebug - and used the arrows embossing folder. This embossing folder I have had for a while and had never used, so today was the day as it matched with the arrows on my washi tape. I found the journalling box unused on my Sugar Rush Compliments X7215C. I had completed my "Workshop Your Way" Sugar Rush and I still had some wonderful pieces left to use on other projects. I then used my Raspberry stamp pad and stamped "Happy Birthday" using the stamp " Tagged with Love" C1614 which I had also not used for a while but any sentiment would work. I then stuck all the levels on with my trusty Duck Tape and my card was finished. Of course I used the card and envelope that I purchased from Close To My heart a bulk pack of 50 white cards. Check out my shop at kerrydehring.ctmh.com.au and you can purchase your own bulk pack of cards, at $23.00 it is such a great price.
My inspiration came from the following photo which I found on Pinterest and the photo linked to a blog called diy-ome.blogspot.com.au.
