SENDING HEALING HUGS
I used watercolor paper to create this flower so that I can play with monochromatic shades of blue. The ombre background was created using Distress oxide inks Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina and Salty Ocean. The Garden Trellis Cover die added more texture to the background. To finish off this card, I embossed the sentiment from the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set. I used cool colors for this card so that everything will blend well together.

Hello everyone!!! I’d like to thank Sveta Fotinia from sending all of you over. I’m so thrilled to be a part of this blog hop because this release is just full of colors! I’m sure you will fall in love with them 😍 To view the entire collection, make sure you visit the Altenew Blog or you can check out their online store here. Take a look at these gorgeous summer washi tapes!!!
There are so many ways you can use these amazing washi tapes and below are some examples. I just love how you can create wonderful cards in no time at all just by using washi tapes.
I love how easy it is to add color to a card front using washi tapes. For this card, I used the different shades of blues by sticking them onto Neenah solar white cardstock then die cutting the pieces using the Monstera 3d die. Next, I layered the different shades of washi, sometimes overlapping to create a new shade of blue. I left the upper portion of the card white for more contrast. I cut out the middle part using the Framed Congrats die then cut another 4 more to layer behind it to add some dimension then adhered the plant and pot.
I stamped the leaves onto Neenah Solar White cardstock then die cut it. Another set of leaves was stamped onto the orange cardstock using Versamark ink then embossed with clear embossing powder. the panel was cut and the Allium Palette Washi tape was used to frame the panel on both sides for some accents. I love the color combo used in this tape.❤️ The panel was attached to the card front using foam tape.
First, I covered a sheet of Neenah Solar White cardstock scrap with the different shades of pink to create an ombre effect. I die cut the letter S then added dimension by adhering 4 more other S die cuts. The leaves from the Retro Plantines stamp set were embossed using the rose gold embossing powder then die cut.
Another strip f cardstock was covered using the washi tape but I made sure to overlap the tapes to create more shades of pink. This was cut into two to create the top and bottom strips on the card. Foam tape was used to add dimension to these strips.
The other materials used for this card are the following: Morning Glory Palette Washi tape, Classic Alphabet die, Reason to Smile stamp set and cardstocks. I covered the center of the white cardstock panel with the Marbled Dream washi tape. The Morning glory palette washi tape was used to add a strip to the left and right of the card since it had similar colors to the Marbled dream. I die cut the letters U and R then added 4 more layers for dimension. The sentiment was stamped using Verasmark Ink and was embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder.
I’ve never seen a washi tape this big!!! The total length of this washi tape is 11.5 inches!!! The design is so beautiful that you just want to use it as is!
I also used the Navy gold trim washi tape and the handwritten hello die . This is a 5×7 card cause I wanted to maximize the washi tape. I adhered the tape onto white cardstock then trimmed it down to 3×7. I used the Navy Gold trim washi tape as an added accent to the floral panel. The hello was die cut using gold paper for the background and navy blue for the thinner portion of the die. I love how it matched the Navy gold trim washi tape. Super easy card to make!

I made this card using the Dotted Starbust Debossing Cover Die, the Calming Bouquet Washi Tape, Rose Gold Embossing Powder and Precious Peony Stamp Set. This was a quick card to make. Simply cover a white cardstock with the washi tape. Run it through the die cutting machine with the Dotted Starburst Debossing cover die. It will give it a beautiful subtle pattern. Cut about .25 inches on both ends then divide the panel in the middle. Stamp the sentiment in the middle of the card front then attach the washi panels using foam tape making sure to reveal the sentient in the middle
WHY FIT IN WHEN YOU WERE BORN TO STAND OUT CARD
The following were used for this card: Tranquil Wings stencil, Rose Gold Embossing Powder, Distress Oxide inks (Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet), Decofoil Transfer Gel, Decofoil gold, laminator, cardstocks, vellum and Versamark Ink.
I really wanted the middle butterfly to stand out and be different– in color, texture and position to emphasize the sentiment. First, the body of the butterfly was colored using distress oxide inks. Water droplets were sprayed over them to add more texture. When these were dry, I used the Decofoil transfer gel to add the details of the wings. These were allowed to dry then decofoil was applied using a laminator to add shine to the wings.
The sentiment was stamped on vellum. Edges were torn and Versamark Ink and rose gold embossing powders were added to give a gold embossed edge. I added a black mat before attaching the whole panel to a pink card front. The thin black mat gives it a finished look.
Since I already had my laminator out, I decided to use the Hand Drawn Tile Stencil with the Decofoil Transfer gel on a card front.
Teal foil was added and the panel was cut into two. The Thanks die from the Script Words 2 die set was used to cut toner paper then this was also foiled.
The negative of the foil was so pretty and I didn’t want to waste it so I made another card using toner paper.
The sentiment (one of my all-time faves as you will see me use it often) was taken from the Wonderland Stamp set and embossed using Rose Gold embossing powder.
I used the Fancy For You die to cut toner paper then foil was added using a laminator. This was then adhered onto the biggest die cut using the Nesting Frames die set. This frame was cut twice using the smaller frames. A panel of paper was inked using distress ink over the On Point stencil. The arrows were then colored in using the Artist marker.
The card was then assembled using foam tape to add dimension to the frames.
I THINK YOU’RE FABULOUS CARD
For this card, I used the Fine Frames Diamonds Die Set, The Classic Alphabet die, assorted cardstocks, Rose Gold embossing powder and Versamark ink.
I purposely left a lot of white space so that the attention will be focused on the monogram. 3 different colors of cardstocks were cut using the Fine Frames Diamonds die set. I stuck them together using some washi tape to make sure the dies don’t move so that I can cut different colors of cardstock with the same widths of frames.
I then interchanged the colors to come up with a nice pattern. These were glued onto white cardstock. The letter I was die-cut in the middle of the frames and 4 more were die cut and layered to give it dimension. The sentiment was stamped on black cardstock and embossed in gold. Since I was able to create 3 diamonds mix-matching the papers, I made use of one and added the tips to both top and bottom to balance out the card.
I used the Dotted Starbust debossing die for added texture to the card front. Since the front of the card was already full of embellishments, I decided to put the die cut sentiment inside.
I cut strips of paper using the leftover cardstocks, pasted them on white cardstock then die cut the For You sentiment. I layered them on 4 more die cuts to add dimension then this was glued inside the card.
I stamped the flower image on Arches cold press 300gsm watercolor paper using the masking technique. The images were embossed using Rose Gold embossing powder then watercolored with the watercolor brush markers.
I love how intense the colors are! The background was then painted and sprinkled with salt. Water droplets were also added for more texture. When it was dry, the largest die from the Nesting Frames Die was used to cut the center of the panel. The outer edge was then mounted on a gold card base using foam squares while the center was glued directly onto the card front.
