Simon Says.......Washi Tape!

Good morning, all!  Are we in the 2013 groove yet?  It's Wednesday and that means another challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

This week the DT and our Guest Designer Glenda are making something using WASHI TAPE!  If you want to see some amazingly innovative ideas using them, RUN over to the blog and see their ideas!!  Here's my first card for this week:

SSS Jan 16 Washi Tape

I used a set of Washis made from the My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing" collection called Lavender "Reasons Why"; it's a set of 3 coordinating tapes, and you know how much I love my pastels and florals!  To these I added a Hero Arts sentiment from their My Happy clear set, stamped with broken china distress ink, masking out the last word on it and substituting a big die-cut "Happy" from the Simon Exclusive die "Oh Happy Day", cut from the blue chevron washi tape (first put on paper).  Then I die-cut some hearts from all of the washis to sprinkle here and there, using the Simon Exclusive Holiday Shapes hearts.

SSS Washi Tape, Jan 16

For my 2nd card, I used the same set of Washis but added the gold dot from the My Mind's Eye "Hanging Out" Washi set and  one of the labels from the Hero Arts set Truly Grateful.  The gingham ribbon is from my Christmas gift from teamie Lisa.  This strip pattern is one I've used for years (thanks, Mary Anne!), but never before with Washi Tape!  Washi sure beats cutting and gluing down all those strips of paper!

Heidi has again offered up a $50.00 gift voucher to her Simon Says Stamp Superstore!  Will you win it this week?  I can't wait to see what you make!

  19. Lin your cards are always so beautiful and these two are no exception. The washi tape you've used is so pretty and I love the strip pattern you've used.
    I so need to learn to make more "adult" cards, yours are always so inspiring Lin :)

  20. Lin these are so gorgeous! Love the 'Happy' diecut from the washi, and that patchwork design is just incredible! Brilliant idea to use the coordinated washi sets in such a way... you may just tempt me to buy a whole pack. ;) So glad you are able to use the ribbon as well! xo Beautimus as always! :)
