Stampers with Attitude ~ Washi Tape

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show artwork with Close to My Heart Washi tape plus our stamp sets, so here we go.  If you have just come from  DENISE ELLIOTT ~, then you are in the right spot!

Washi tape can be used for so many things.  It can be used as accent or to cover just about anything.   I was trying to find a way to use washi tape in my project which was different from what I have done before, so I of course turned to Pinterest for ideas.   How about using washi tape to make flowers? This would be perfect!!!

So how do you make a flower using washi tape?  Start by taking a 2 inch circle and then hand cut it so it is coiled.  Don’t worry if the it is irregular as this will make you flower have more definition.  Then using your washi tape wrap alternating pieces until all the surfaces are covered.   For this project I used the Ruby Chevron Washi Z1933, Slate Polka-Dot Washi Z1817, and Silver Geometric Washi Tapes Z1932.

You will then start with the smallest end and roll it to form a flower.   Using a strong adhesive like Liquid Glass to secure the flower to the center of what was the circle.  This is what the flowers will look like.

Then these flowers can be used for any number of projects.  I decided to design some cards.

Washi Flowers ~ Happy Birthday

For this card I used the Babycakes and Proplayer paper packs.  The Happy Birthday is from the Holiday Tags stamp set D1560.

With the wonderful Cloud Nine promotion going on right now I was inspired to create this card.

Washi Flower ~ Cloud Nine

For this card I used the Love This B1432 and the Cloud Nine stamp sets.   For the washi flower I used the Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Z1850, Gold Polka-Dot Washi Z1920 and Honey Triangle Washi Tapes Z1931.

Kids Say the Darndest Things…

I am participating in a blog hop this Sunday evening that will be highlighting washi tape so I have been a washi mad woman.  I have designed several projects using washi tape which I will feature here on my blog over the next few days.  By now every one has heard of washi tape and perhaps you have a few (dozen) rolls.  If you are like me you have fallen in love with all the cool colors and patterns so you just had to have it … am I right?  Now that you have them what exactly do you do with them?  Well the wonderful thing is there are many uses and can be incorporated into all you scrapbooking, card making and crafts.  I will show you a few thing over the next couple of days.

Today I will show you a layout that I designed using the Ruby Chevron Washi tape and the Slate Polka-Dot Washi tape from Close to My Heart.

Kids say the ... Layout

For this layout I used the Proplayer Paper pack along with Ruby, Whisper and Daisy White Cardstock.  I have been having a lot of fun with my Cricut and used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the overlay, note paper, photo frame and number.  I did use my Silhouette to cut the title.

Be sure to check back as there will be more designs using washi tape soon.

Happy Crafting!

Holiday Guide with an Attitude!

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  I will be kicking off this blog hop, so if you are starting with me the you are in the right spot.   The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show you some Artwork with an Attitude using our incredibly awesome new Holidays from the Heart Gift Collection, so here we go.

Last year I had purchased a advent calender box which had 25 drawers.  Since Christmas has pasted, I had set it to the side as I figured I would embark on it this year.  Well when I was able to preview the new Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide I was in LOVE!  The Sparkle and Shine paper is so festive and fun, I knew it would be prefect to use to crate my advent calendar.  Then low and behold on the next page was Magical Days stamp set.  OMG this was the most ideal stamp set ever. I could hardly wait to get mine.

 Magical Days advent calendar with Sparkle & Shine

For my advent calender the following products:

  • Sparkle & Shine Paper Packet X7176B
  • Sparkle & Shine Washi tape Z1907
  • Magical Days D1552
  • Ruby Ink Z2170
  • Twilight Ink Z2160
  • Slate Ink Z2173
  • Pink Glitter Gems Z1807
  • Bitty Sparkles Z1263
  • Cranberry Bakers Twine Z1751
  • Ruby Chevron Ribbon Z1846

Any of the items marked with an * are from the Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide and will be available to purchase starting October 15th.  I actually choose to use Twilight instead of juniper which is one of the coordinating colors with the Sparkle and Shine paper; it was an accident but I liked the way it turned out.
