Dragonfly Glitters on Washi Tape Background

Hello Everyone,
Hope you have been enjoying my Month of Washi tape projects!  The projects for the finale of my month of Washi tape are two gorgeous cards with die cut dragonflies and washi tape backgrounds.

The background was created by wrapping washi tape around a piece of cream cardstock.  The background was added to a dark brown card base.  I added two die cut circles as a platform for the dragonfly which was cut from glitter paper.

The second card was made in the same way.  The dragonfly was cut from a shinny, textured paper on this card.

So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed my month of washi tape.  And, I hope you have come up with some other ideas for your washi tape.  Let me know what you came up in a comment.  Would love to see your ideas.

Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Washi Tape - Oh My!

Hello, Crafty Artisans!
Welcome!! So happy you stopped by today for my Month of Washi Tape to check out some cards with washi tape backgrounds!!  I also incorporated some of my favorite motifs: butterflies and dragonflies!

The washi tape was wrapped around a piece of lilac cardstock.  I picked colors from the tapes to select cardstock and embellishments.  I added a purchased paper butterfly embellishment.  Great birthday card!

The second card has a bold color pallet.  Again, the cardstock colors were chosen from the colors in the tapes.  A dragonfly die cut (Stampin' Up) was added.  I wrapped some more of the washi tapes around a scrap of cardstock and punched out a circle.  A dragonfly was placed on top to the circle and added to the card with dimensional adhesive.  Pearls were also used to embellish.

Just love these bold, graphic washi tapes!!  They really add some pizzazz to a card.

I have a few more washi tape cards to share and I will do that on the next post!  See you again soon.

Washi Tape As Focal Point

Hello Everybody,
I am back today with my Month of Washi tape with a few projects using  washi tape as the focal point.  I had several tapes that had really cute designs.  Wondering how to use these tapes, I decided to make the tape the focal point!  Why not?!  Washi doesn't have to be just an embellishment.  I choose this cute city scape tape.  When choosing the cardstock colors,  I paired them back to  colors within the tape.  
Die cut sentiments, ribbon, and pearls were added to each card.

The projects are so cheerful and colorful!  Love how the cards turned out.  No sense letting that washi tape languish in a drawer.  I will share more washi tape cards with you next time!  So glad you stopped by!
