Paper Playtime Ch# 77 -- Anything Goes!! Washi-Washi-Washi Tape Love... :)

Good Monday morning, Fabulous Friends!!  I love Mondays...  Don't YOU???  Come on, if you say it enough times, you might believe it, right???  :)  LOL...  I really DO love the first and third Mondays because it means that it's time again for another Paper Playtime Challenge!! Yee-Haw!! :)  If you haven't yet entered any of the Paper Playtime Challenges, please be sure to pop on over there and check it out... There is a challenge on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month!! On the FIRST Monday it's a DELICIOUS DIE CUT CHALLENGE... And on the THIRD Monday it's a SAY IT WITH SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE (that's ME!!)... Each challenge has a FUN theme, so I hope you'll check it out and JOIN US for a good time!! :)

Now... On to my inspiration for the challenge (I hope I'll get to see what you create too!!)...

(Your project can be a scrapbook layout, mini album, card, altered frame, bookmark, anything!)
I decided to make a sweet card to share with someone special...  I was excited to use Washi Tape for the very first time!!  I can see myself getting pretty addicted to this stuff...  Yeah, I'm loving the Washi Tape...  Have you tried some yet???  Freckled Fawn has a TON of colors and styles available...
My card is a standard A2 base (4.25"x5.5").  After layering two strips of Washi Tape on the card front, I embossed it with my Cuttlebug "Polka Dots" embossing folder.  I also layered a small rectangle of white with Washi Tape to use as the center of my card front (it measures about 1.75"x3") and layered that on another piece of white (2"x3.25") before embossing that layer as well.  The bright pink layer measures 2.5"x3.75" and is adhered with foam tape for dimension.
My sentiment "Love you" can be found on the "Even More Food For Thought" Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs...  I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a 1.5" heart adhered with foam tape.  To finish off my card, I added some faux stitching with a pink fine tip marker...
I hope my "Love you" card brightens your day as much as your visit has brightened mine!!  Thanks so much for taking the time to share your day with me...  :)

We are sponsored this challenge by Freckled Fawn who is offering a $15 Gift Certificate! Anyone who enters can win no matter where you live!!!!! Challenge ends Noon EST on Saturday, June 30th. Winner announced in Monday, July 2nd's post with our new challenge theme.

Love the card, so simple but pops. I got a roll of washi tape at Wal-mart 97c. Loved it because of the design, but just seems like ribbon with pre stickiness to me, so don't really see the new rave of a trend with it. I know several who have gone crazy with it and now has close to 100 rolls. I think I will stick with my ribbon. Thanks for sharing!

Dee Burns said...

Amy, just had to come back and tell you that HSN is having a big Crafting day and they just showed a big batch of Washi Tape in different colors. Just wanted to let you know...I apologize...but I don't see your email address anywhere to email you...sorry!

Have a great day!
