Altenew March 2020 Washi Tapes Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Altenew March 2020 Washi Tapes Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

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.


CONGRATS CARD


This card was inspired by the talented Norine Borys‘ card from last month’s stand-alone dies. I just loved how simple yet stunning the card was so I created a similar card using washi tape. Materials used for this card are the following: Framed Congrats die, Monstera 3D die and the Sweet Dreams Washi tape.

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.


IT’S COOL TO BE KIND CARD


For this card, I used the following: Allium Palette Washi tape, Leaf Clusters Stamp and die set, Firefly crisp dye ink, Rose Gold Crisp Embossing powder, Versamark Ink and cardstocks.

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.


MONOGRAM S CARD


This is another easy card to create. I used the Rose Petal Washi tapes, Mega Alpha S die, Retro Plantines stamp and die set, Rose Gold Embossing powder and Versamark ink.

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.


U R SOMEBODY’S REASON TO SMILE CARD


Isn’t this Marbled Dream washi tape just beautiful???

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.


HELLO CARD


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!
