ATC Washi Tape Techniques with Elisa

Hi there, crafty friends!!!
It's Elisa today here to tell you about something about Washi Tape!!! We are scrappers. So we love Washi... I created for you some easy inspiration project to show you different ways to use them!!
Let's start with this 3 ATCs series, made using Washi Tape by Boulevard BoBunny Collection!!!

In these ATC I used washi tape in 3 different ways:

FIRST: you can use them to decorate your project as long staight embellishment. For example you can see that I used one in vertical and other three (the glittered light blue, the champagne and the typewrite one) in orizontal, playing by layering them and using different lenghs.

SECOND: you can use the larger washi to create rosette!! You can see in the video how to make them!! Very fast, easy... and great effect!!!

THIRD: would you like to create lot of embellisments?? Take a piece of cardstock, cover it with some washi tape stripes (pay attention: don't leave empty spaces between the stripes) and then create your embellishment using a punch or diecutting the cardstock!! Easy!!

In this picture you can se the layered effect I made with the thinnest washi tapes;
you can also see a little circle, created with a 1/4" punch, cardstonk and a stripe of glittered washi;
on the left, the rosette.

Not only washi, of course... In the high right corner I used some stamps!!! I pasted the "Love this" one with a piece of foam tape. For cutting it, I used scissor and the thinnest punch of my Crop'a'dile: fast and easy!!!

Some other example of circles made using punches, washi tape and cardstock.

The rosette.

But, of course... When you say washi tape, you say journal too!!!

Let me show the journal page I create for keeping memory of my birthday party (at the theme park Gardaland, as usual!!!) . This time I chose the Celebrating Freedom Washi Tapes!!!
Let's have a look to this page:

I diecut the letters using the third technique I told you before... I put some stripes of red glittered washi on a cardstock and then diecut it!

I love washi...  And I love labels too!!! 
The wood effect one by We R Memory Keepers is stunning!!

I used a long stripe of flowered washi tape to decorate the lower edge of the page.

First way to fix a picture: 45° stripes on the corners!

Second way to fix a picture: vertical (or orizontal) stripes on one side of the picture.

Fixing only one side, you create a hinge. And you can can browse the picture as a page, so you can write something behind it.

I hope you had fun reading this post about Washi Tape!!!

For kids you can also do a little "series" in the different boxes.

For my card there is some flowers and butterflies and in one of the boxes there will be a photo of the person that is celebrated.

Christmas Treasure Dimensional Cards

Hello crafty friends!
It's Angela with you to share some cards I made with the brand new Christmas Treasures collection by BoBunny. I know, maybe it's early to start working on Christmas project but this collection is totally amazing and I couldn't resist playing with it.

I love everything from Christmas Treasures, every single piece, from the papers to the die-cuts and the chipboards. It has a traditional style but with a modern twist thanks to its touch of light pink and of rose gold foil accents.


For my today cards I use the 6" x 8" paper pad and all the cards measure 5,5" x 4,25". I also made a matching envelop for each card. To create them, I used the DoubleDot cardstocks suggested for this collection. You can find the complete list of the coordinate DoubleDot items here, in the Christmas Treasure launch post.


My first card is horizontal. Here, as well as in the other cards, I first created a panel out of patterned paper slightly smaller than the card base. To be precise, the front panel measures 5" 3/8 x 4" 1/8.


I used a burgundy plaid paper for my base and in the center I placed a white doily. On top of it, I placed a die-cut with the sentiment Merry Christmas and I adhered it with foam tape.


Then, I embellished all around with other die-cuts and layered chipboards and a few DoubleDot Jewels in pink. Last, I glued the finished card on a vanilla cardstock folded in two and voilĂ , the first card is done.


For the envelop, I used wine vintage DoubleDot, with a faint gold damask on one side and gold polka dots on the other.


My second card is pretty similar to the first even if the cluster of the embellishments is arranged on the left side.


The card base is a gorgeous patterned paper in red with a design of poinsettias printed in rose gold foil.


I placed a white paper doily on the left of the card and I layered some Noteworthy pieces. I added red strass on the berries of the hollies and a gold twine to the rose gold bell. For the sentiment I used a long banner with written Merry Christmas and I placed it on top of the composition using foam adhesive.


The envelop of this second card is made out of a 12" sugar chevron DoubleDot cardstock. I chose a light color to match the stylish poinsettia and to make it pop.


The third card is a bit different from the previous ones. It is vertical and the main color of the whole card is light pink.


The vertical orientation is due to the die-cut piece I chose as main subject for the card, an old-style image of a cute baby musician.


Underneath the musician, I created a layer of flowers. Two of these flowers are die-cuts and two are paper blossoms that I enriched with a touch of pink glitter paste spread on the surface.


The sentiment Merry and Bright is from the layered chipboard pack of the collection. It has the traditional colors of Christmas, red and gold that match perfectly with the pinkish of the card.


Here, I also chose pink for the envelop. I went for Dusty Rose Damask cardstock so to keep consistent with the main color of the card.


That's all for today my friend. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you liked my cards and feel inspired to create with the beautiful Christmas Treasures collection.
