Washi Tape Tips with Altenew Giveaway

Hi! Today, I’m getting out my washi tape and also participating in a card making video hop with the Altenew educators. I often forget about my washi tape, so I pulled out some items and created 4 cards. The theme of the hop is “Let’s Get Sentimental” which means we are focusing on sentiments. Go to the video to enter for the $120 worth of prizes.

First, I created some thin stripes on a piece of card stock with the skinny washi. This background will give you a 2 for 1. The mega “hello” die will be the main feature of all these cards. I like using “hello” sentiments because I can go back and custom the inside of the card to fit most occasions such as “happy birthday”, “I’m thinking about you” or “just a note.”

Card #1 Washi Stripes

Next, I cut the sentiment out of this panel of washi and saved it for the next card. I added a brushed silver sentiment and created a shaker window with this card.

CArd #2 Sentiment with striped Washi

This background is also washi tape! Just grab the sentiment cut from the previous card and some jet black card stock to create a slight shadow. Then, I added some more stripes from the original panel I made.

Card #3 Bold Sentiment

I placed the striped panel on top of a panel of white card stock with a 3D embossing folder imprint. All that was left was to add the bold, black sentiment. For the last card, I was curious as to what would happen if I used a 3D embossing folder over a panel of washi.

Card #4 Alcohol ink + Washi

Have you tried alcohol ink over washi tape? It’s surprising how much it made the 3D embossing show up. For the sentiment, I used the corresponding colors to ink blend from light to dark.

  1. A bunch of cool cards. And as an avid Altenew fan/shopper I have most of what you’ve used. Yay! The one thing I’m missing is the unusual lattice embossing folder. Who makes that’s? Please.
