Wild About Washi Tape

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The truth is I'm not really.....wild about it that is.
Don't get me wrong, I love the look, but I know me by now.  If I bought a roll I'd use it once or twice and that's it. I would never use a whole roll.  Just like I'd never use a whole pack of one color button so I always buy the combo packs.  Anyway, back to washi tape. 
 A friend (wink, wink) sent me a roll of washi tape to play with. 
One of the cool things about washi tape is its translucency.  I adhered it to an acetate sheet and then die cut it to preserve that quality.


Cardstock: PTI Soft Stone, Pure Poppy
Stamps: PTI Button Boutique
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow
Dies: PTI Double Ended Banner, WP9 Hearts
Other: Washi Tape


  1. I'm with you on washi tape Kara. I have a few rolls of it but use it more to make sure that my dies don't move when I'm cutting them. Fabulous idea to apply the acetate behind it. your card is perfect!

  2. Pretty card.
    I don't own any washi tape. I am like you.
    didn't know it was transparent either. Love the idea about making it more sturdy.

  3. Well I LOVE this its brilliant and I will definitely be trying this technique out and have pinned your card to my pinterest board! thanks for the inspiration! xx

  4. Love it!!
    But I always do! ;)
    And I'm with you on the washi...
    I just can't make myself get into it because as soon as I buy a load of it...
    the fad will be over and I'll have 100 rolls of colorful tape!! :)

  5. I haven't used washi tape much either. I do see many very creative cards done with it though. I love how you used it with the acetate. Your CAS design is wonderful!

  6. What a beautiful card and a neat way to use the washi tape. I have never used it before. I'll have to give it a try now! :)

  7. I can honestly say that I do love Washi tape. I have a growing collection, and I really do use it! Great idea to pair it with the acetate. Also, I never thought about that sentiment for Valentines Day, but it is perfect.

  8. Kara I love the look of washi tape, but when other people use it. I don`t know how to make it look amazing. You made it look amazing with this card today. Love the blue, keep using it, you`re good!
