Washi Hugs

I don't consider myself a CAS cardmaker in the pure sense, but when I saw the current challenge at CASology was "washi", I thought I'd give it a try.


supplies: white cardstock, various washi tapes, DieNamics Decorative Doily die, Simon's Painted Hugs die, some floral embellishments from my scrap basket, a sequin

I found that wide floral washi at a local craft store; I think it's made by Heidi Swapp.  I paired it with 2 others, pulling out similar colors, and then added the half-doily and flowers for pretty.

The more I looked at that floral washi, the more I wanted to play with it again, so here's another variation:


supplies: white cardstock, Heidi Swapp floral washi, Doodlebug Swiss Dot washis, Wplus9 sentiment from Blanket Stitched Blooms, die-cut line of hearts from Winnie & Walter's Audrey's Cutaways, paper flowers, pearls



These may not be CAS enough, but I had fun playing!  Thanks for your visit!

Sweet cards Lin. I am just a touch partial to the second. I am in awe of both...being so washi impaired myself.

Sally said...

Both cards are so pretty, Lin. Your use of washi tape is inspiring. Love the rows of hearts on the second card.

Lin, both cards are wonderful! I adore that floral washi, and the two other patterns you paired with it are perfect together! I think your cards are perfectly CAS...lots of white space, simple design, one main sentiment, lots of BEAUTY!! Thanks for playing along at CASology this week!
