What time is it!...It's Washi Tape time!

I'm sooo sorry, but I just enjoy doing different things with this tape.  I find it versatile and gives me the ability to create a very quick card and "quick" is not usually found in my personal dictionary as we all know!

I'm rather fond of black and white and now you can purchase Washi Tape in sheets!  Yep!  So I didn't have to do any piecing of tape with this card.  Using a long border die and combining it with Inchie squares and rolled roses, this is what I came up with.  I'm going to be doing a picture frame using the same sheet of Washi paper and I'll post that down the road.

The inspiration for this next card is one of my favorite Impression Obsession stamp backgrounds which I stamped in white on navy card stock.  I placed a band of border punched white card stock across the center front of the card and then created a bow using my plastic bag technique and my Craft-Dee BowZ.

I also have a few Christmas cards for you today.  This first one was inspired by the unusual combo of pink and white snowflake Washi tape, so I used it in combination with a new Penny Black set and mounted it on a piece of gold mirror card stock.

Now the next two I did in brown/gold and smoky black/silver.  What?  Now why in the world would someone use browns and blacks for Christmas?  Take a peek and see what you think.

These were, of course, inspired by the silver and gold glitter Washi tape and my favorite mirror card stock.  The die is from Poppy Stamps.   Wouldn't these make great masculine cards for the holidays?

Well, I hope I've inspired you some more to get out there and try this great medium.

That's it for today -- ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!
