Custom Washi Tape Card

Hi, Friends.....

First I want to thank you all for your kind comments during this difficult time of losing 2 friends and also losing my sweet Aliyah kitty.  Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated!

I am here today with a simple summery card I made for the MFP Stamps Flowers Everywhere July Tutorial Challenge where they ask us to make custom washi tape following their tutorial and use it on a project.  MFP has wonderful tutorials and I enjoy stretching my skill set a bit by trying the new techniques they show us.

Here I made my own washi tape by coloring some Micropore surgical tape strips with several different colors of my Spectrum Noirs and then stamping them with some MFP stamps using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black . I used the sunflower image from my Mark's Finest Papers - Calendar stamp set and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers - Background Fun stamp set.

I made some random (and hopefully a little arty!) splatters with Clearsnap Smooch Spritz in Pomegranate and Carrot Cake. I finished it off with some gold sequins and a sparkly gold bow. Easy and fun!

Hope you liked this sunny card.  I love the vibrant late summer colors!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  5. So neat how you used the tape!!! Very cute card! :)

  6. Made your own washi tape ok Martha Stewart.......... I love the result but have a drawer full of purchased washi so this is not going in my to do file

  7. This card is already yummy but when I heard the names of your Smooch Spritz, my mouth started watering! I have some micro-pore tape somewhere around here and wanted to give this technique a try too but don't know if I'll get to it before the challenge is over. What a great way to use those small images in stamp sets!

  8. A beautiful and bright card, thanks so much for sharing it with us at Southern Ridge Trading Company and so very sorry for your recent losses, sending my condolences. Deb xo
