Stampin'Up! Baby We've Grown Goes Retro!
Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Washi Sunburst Card!

Stampin' Up! Washi Tape is Wonderful!

Hey there! Typepad (my blogging platform) was down last night, so I was unable to get my blog post up before I went to bed. I have a bunch of fun cards for you today using washi tape, so let's get started!

My first sample for you I CASED from Rachel Tessman of Canada. Retro Fresh Washi tape was laid on the card front in a radiating pattern that gives it an all-over look of designer paper. Washi tape is a low-tack tape, so if you haven't pressed it down onto the cardstock you can lift and re-position a little without tearing the paper. The little stamped stars are from the Sale-a-bration Banner Blast set in Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, and Coastal Cabana ink. The greeting is from You're Amazing, and rhinestones were added for a little sparkle.

The inside is quick and easy too, using a greeting from Delightful Dozen:

I stepped-up this next card for a workshop Make-n-take by adding a card base of Tangerine Tango and a few gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim. You can use Glue Dots or Tombow Glue to attach the sequins.

Stampers at the workshop will have their choice from the Delightful Dozen greeting or this one from "Yippee-Skippee!" They will also line their envelope with a bit of Retro Fresh Designer Paper and an Envelope Liner Framelit.

For a more masculine look, I used the same layout but switched to Epic Day This and That Washi Tape and a greeting from Countless Sayings 2 photopolymer. Card base is Basic Gray and inks are Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, and Crumb Cake.


Delightful Dozen on the inside again and I added some more washi tape to keep the continuity going:


I love that we have more than a couple of washi tapes to choose from! Three rolls in each package with 5 yards per roll for only $4.95!

I used Gingham Garden Washi tape for my feminine sample. Daffodil Delight card base, then the little flower from the Banner Blast stamp set stamped in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Island Indigo.


Up close you can see the detail of the scalloped paper-piercing. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack as my guide. Just a little bit of piercing adds such a fun detail! Greeting from You're Amazing again.

Inside is another greeting from the You're Amazing stamp set.

As you can see from these samples, it doesn't require a lot of supplies to create multiple looks with one layout. A limited supply challenge can be fun!

That's all for now. Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
