Washi Wonder and Custom Color

I’ve had some fun this week!!  Squared a few things away and then I got to play with the latest and greatest from Lori and her store!!  (I have an ongoing love affair with Washi tape.  You’d never know it to see me in public, but it’s my dirty little secret.)  Lori hasn’t helped my obsession by bringing in some of the new WeRMemory Keepers Washi paper! Now you can cut any kind of shape from Washi tape you can think of!!  I used it with punches and die cut roller machines as well as my Silhouette Cameo and it performed beautifully!!  I love the transparent effect it has, showing the background paper through the design!

I cut several sizes and various shapes of stars for this layout about our recent trip to the Arizona State Fair.  (We went for the deep-fried chocolate covered cheese curds (not even kidding a little bit) but ultimately chickened out and stuck with our tried-&-true turkey drumsticks and funnel cake.)

As well as the Washi stars, I used some Pink Paislee custom color chipboard stars, which I colored with Tim Holtz Distress inks, and the Pink Paislee Artisan Elements stickers, that I altered to a bright red!  I started by misting red ink spray on, but found it to be quite thin/light in color, so once that dried I colored over the word “fun” with Copic markers.

I also made these two card using Washi punched shapes.  On this first one, I stamped and heat embossed the little couple on the label shaped Washi.

And the “feel better” card uses 3 butterflies punched from Washi paper, some vellum paper and white card stock run through the BigKick with this Swiss dot embossing folder.  Hows that for a quick and easy way to throw together a fun card!

Be sure and check out the store for the Washi paper and mistable items before they all disappear!!

Christmas cards to ‘die’ for!

Hello Lisa here with some more Christmas inspiration for you today!

Do you make your Christmas cards every year, or are you like me and have good intentions to make them but never seem to get them done in time?  This year I made a little goal for myself to get at least a few done for those special people on my list.

On this first card I used the Memory Box Grand Snow Globe to create a window on the front of the card, then added another one inside stamped with their Santa Globe.

This next card features some Dee’s Distinctively dies that Lori had brought in, I believe they are currently sold out, but I hope she brings more in because they are beautiful!!!

I started by cutting the Christmas Tree Silhouette out of cardstock covered with a piece of Be Creative Tape Sheet, then I cut out the Christmas Tree No. 2 from green cardstock.  I peeled the  tape back from the base tree using this to adhere the overlay tree.  Once I had my layers put together I used Glitter Ritz to add some color & shine to the base of my tree!

See what I mean these dies are gorgeous!!

Thanks for stopping by today, I’m off to work on more Christmas cards.  If you’re looking for some great card inspiration head over the forum, Lori has posted a fun card sketch for us!
