Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

27 September 2018

Welcome to the September 2018 Washi Release and GIVEAWAY. If you have come from Laura Bassen's blog then you are right on track. You can also start on the Altenew Card blog

 I had so much fun creating with the washit tapes. I think they are my favourite product of all time. I love the different size and the design are right up my alley. I could have kept on creating but had to stop. 
My first project was a card. I used the Leaf washi tape and created a background for the card. I cut out the parrot shape using the die from Parrot Paradise. Then I added a stamped and coloured image that I had created some time ago but never used. I also used the Golden Edge Washi tape to add some gold touches. 



For my layout I did LOTS and LOTS of fussy cutting. I used the Painted Orchids Washi Tape.  How did I make the layout? You can find out in the video below. 
The layout is actually very simple. The only part which takes a bit of time is the cutting of the flowers. 



The SUMMER card was made on one of my Facebook Lives which you can watch here (technique starts at 35:29) if you want. 


I also had some labels laying around from a project I created some time ago. I love these labels from the Dot Label Set. The sentiments are from the Charmed Stamp Set. I also quickly made a card with the leftovers. I love creating a layout and then making a card with a similar feel. I always feel a little lost when it comes to cards but when I make them after having created a layout I have more ideas and it is less daunting.


I bet you have a favourite washi tape or maybe several. Wouldn't it be great if you could win some spending money and buy some?

What fabulous layout & cards, the parrot works so great against that tape. Like that you didn't waste your leftovers & you got a great card out of it. Going to get three of these as my budget might manage three.

Your colorful bird and this pretty leaf wash tape are the perfect pairing! This is really a beautiful idea!

Cyndi Morris said...

Those projects are beautiful. I love this new washi, and you've used some of my favorites.

G Force said...

What I love about your blog was the fact that you were genuine in your thought. You continually played with the flowers you cut out from the washi tape until you were happy with the placement. It showed me that even as a seasoned blogger, you have to take the time to work through your project until your happy with it. Sometimes, I get discouraged and give up, so it was vey encouraging for me to see that.

Giovana Smith said...

Beautiful layouts!!! Love the colors and the new washi tapes are amazing!!
