Circles and Washi Tape


 
 
I hope you like all my Washi tape. I was over on Emily's blog yesterday at My Little Slice of Bliss where she was doing her monthly feature for the DeNami Design blog. Emily was showing how to use Washi tape with backgrounds. Believe me, I loved each one and could not wait to try them. It just happened I wanted to play in a Splitcoaststampers challenge (TLC418)yesterday which was to use circles. So, I jumped in and did a background of different brands of tapes I had on hand. I really like how it turned out.  Thanks, Emily!
 
My circle and sentiment are from Inspired by Stamping. I cut out the circle with a Spellbinders circle nestabilitie and colored it on the inside. I hand cut the banner and because my sentiment was on the circle, I just added my gemstones.
 
It was such a fun card to make. I'm quite sure I'll be using some more of Emily's ideas before too long. Love me some Washi tape. It is so easy to remove and place back on your card if you get it on crooked or whatever you don't like.

Shucks, do you see the red tape on the right side? It is a bit off at the top but I can easily correct it by pulling it off and correcting with a new piece. It didn't even show until I made a photo. You know how that magnifies everything. I wouldn't have put it on the blog or SCS if I had noticed.

Oh my gosh, Benzi! I am totally in love with this card. I can't believe I inspired you to make this work of art! It is so sweet and happy and colorful and cheerful. I think you definitely have the hang of using washi tape on your cards. Can't wait to see what you make next!

Ein sehr fröhlicher Hintergrund ist Dir mit dem Washi Tape gelungen Benzi. Mit einem Kreis darüber bekommt die Karte eine tolle Wirkung.
So so viele Farben wie Du, habe ich von dem Tape leider noch nicht.

Einen schönen Abend-Carmen :)

I love Emily's Washi cards and I love this one just as much. Next time I get to the craft store I'm going to look for some of this. I especially love the plaid. The round sentiment is just perfect with the background and I love the gems on the banner!

Very nice card - I never tried Washi tape - you did a great job tfs!!!

Pam~ said...

I never would have thought you could pull off so many different patterns and look good. OMGosh, you have done that perfectly..love it! I've never bought or tried the washi tape yet. Awesome colors too!

I'm still stamping but have not done any blogging. I actually "taught" a class at Michaels last week. We made St. Patrick's Day cards. I've enjoyed looking at all your fabulous cards but have not been good about commenting...shame on me.

Becky said...

OH..This is fabulous Benzi. I just love the different tapes you used, it all comes together so perfect.

Fab mix of patterns and gorgeous color! Great use of washi tape and great circles! Such a fun card...love it!

NanaConnie said...

How delightful, Benzi! I haven't gotten into washi tape yet but maybe that's just because I don't have any. I'll have to start looking for it in the local stores after this kind of inspiration. :-D

Oooh I love it! I bought some washi tape in the January sales and have yet to use any of it ... bad me. Looks fab as a bg though!

Charlene said...
