I've been in a real "funk" for some time, no real desire to make cards, no desired to blog, only keeping up with the T-Gang on Tuesdays. I have been making bottle tags ( Bottom of post HERE) till it suddenly has become a JOB and I DON'T want a job.........I'm retired and want to stay that way....LOL So, while taking a break, and browsing my dashboard.........I came across a challenge that really INSPIRED me............OH! AND IT FELT GOOD......(grin)
Washi tape, die cut and embedded in card.
The challenge is over at Shop Our Stash, and it is to use old Washi tape. ALL my Washi tape is old...LOL.....so that was a "no brainer". I had bought some dies, a long while back, or as my youngest son used to say ......"far, far ago."
The negative parts of card one.
I dug them out and had a really "good" play, and here is how it went.........
Stripes of tape on card stock
The die cuts, with Washi tape to keep everything in place so I could remove all the parts at one time
The shapes out of the die and the die shape cut into the card front.
(The circles die will come in an other post.)
These dies cut the out line and the shape at one time........thus tapping the back before removing them. (Don't mind the scribbling on my calendar mat...grin) With the tape still on the back of the shapes it is easy to pull the outlines off and swap them, since true Washi tape is LOW tack the thin outline doesn't tare.
Flipping it all over onto a silicone mat, I taped the back solid, this step.....I found out, with the second card........it doesn't need to be solid......... just enough to hold it all together, so it doesn't move.
Because I gently pulled the tape off the back
On the second card I glued a piece of cs that covered the inside of the front completely.........Looks much better too......grin!!!!!
As you can see I have MANY uses for Washi tape......LOL!!!
Are you hoarding Washi tape???? Get it out and have a play, and join the challenge at Shop Our Stash #201........no die cuts required!
