3 ways with Stampin’ Up Washi Tape

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. It’s a bit of a grey start to the week here but I am ever hopeful the sun will be back soon.

Today’s projects are 3 examples of cards I have made using Stampin’ Up!® Washi tape. My upline Michelle, hosts a bi-monthly challenge on our team Facebook page. The current challenge theme is wash tape. I love all the SU patterns and I use them in my This & That journal and also in my Filofax to brighten up my diary, but other than one of my very first blog post cards (which you can see here), I have not used them much on my cards.

I recreated that first card using the Watercolour Wonder Designer Washi tape. I stamped Gorgeous Grunge in Encore Gold ink for the background.

My second card is a more simplistic card altogether. I used the Hearts framelits to cut out an aperture in the top layer and stuck some Gingham Garden Washi tape behind it. I stamped the Washi chevrons using the Tape It stamp set.

Finally my favourite card of them all, not least because I love the On Film Framelits, as well as the bright colours in the Retro Fresh This & That Washi tape, I used to stick the polaroid frame to the card. I stamped the background card behind the frame using Gorgeous Grunge and then stamped the bicycle and sentiment from Cycle Celebration.

Washi meets MDS!

Stampin Up Washi Tape Elegant Bitty Butterfly Grunge Tracy May Card Making

Having seen so many combinations of ink splodges and washi tape on Pinterest and Google I couldn’t wait to have a go at it myself.

So while I was waiting for my new Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to be delivered last week I had a little play with the ink splodges stamps in MDS (My Digital Studio), which is Stampin’ Up!’s digital design software, due to be released in the near future to the European market.

It’s really easy to use once you get started and I can’t wait to have another go. I’m going to design my new business cards and postcards in it and get them all printed out. 


Anyways, back to my card – I printed out the splodges onto Whisper White cardstock and then layered over the image with strips of washi tape. I punched out the butterflies and stuck them over the top of the washi tape with a Stampin’ dimensional.

When my four-year-old son saw the card after I had finished, he exclaimed “Wow – that’s cool”.
I even changed the colours of the ink in MDS to match the washi tape. He is absolutely right – that is cool!
