Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi, hello!  Welcome back!  We’re hopping today with Altenew to mark the release of some aMAZing new washi tapes!!  I love these designs so much I’d like to wallpaper a room with them!!  You should be arriving here from the blog of Anna Komenda, but if not, you can start the blog hop at the Altenew Card Blog.


I made two cards for today’s blog hop, both using the same technique of adhering a strip of the gorgeous wide Painted Fantasy Washi Tape onto a piece of white card stock and then fussy cutting around one of the whole images.

After each was cut out, I painted the backgrounds of two pieces of watercolor paper, using similar colors to match the watercolored flowers on the tape.  On one card front I painted broad stripes of color, and on the other I just painted puddles of color to create a coordinating background.  On each, I stamped a sentiment from the recently released Build-A-Flower Anemone Coronaria Stamp Set.

What I love most about several of the new washi tapes being released is the watercolor designs!  They are exactly what I wish I could paint like, if I were a “real” artist!  So combining them with a simple painted background and layering the cut designs on top makes me feel like I had a hand in creating their beauty!  At the very least, these washi tapes provide a very quick and easy way to create a jaw-droppingly-beautiful, but homemade card!


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! All you have to do is leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by October 3, 2018 for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on October 6, 2018.
