Washi Tape Project

I planned to continue my Norway series but Bee Happy Craft is celebrating its 11th anniversary and I would like to join their giveaways so I guess, I will spend more of my time on crafting. 

The first theme is “Washi Tape”. This is quite challenging for me because I don’t collect washi tapes so I have very limited resources. The safe project for me is an “anniversary card”, I used washi tape for the background and letters. And I used my Cricut Maker to print and cut the clipart and Sizzix for die cutting.

I initially planned to make a shaker card but for some reason, the washi tape is not moving maybe because I am using photo paper so medyo sticky yung paper. 

Love Cynthia Digital Stamp 

Colorful House

I thought I will only submit one entry for the washi tape category but after doing the card and saw my colorful washi tape. An idea pop into my head so I decided to create a colorful house just like the houses in Quezon province during Pahiyas Festival.

It took me two days to finish this project because on my first day and first try, I did not like the result so I was thinking, should I start again or should I just give up. But I decided to do it again from the start so I cut, die-cut, embossed and assembled the house. 

And I am so happy with the outcome, it is much better compared to yesterday. Like they say "In crafting there are no mistakes, it is your own unique creation"

I mentioned before that I don’t collect washi tape but after doing these two projects, parang gusto ko na rin mag-add sa collection. Ang dami pala magagawa sa washi tapes.

Update: May 2023

Prior to joining Weeklies 16, I only use washi tape to tape my dies or paper so it won't move when die cutting or cutting. But after doing my card and colorful house, I never look washi tape the same way again so I started adding washi tape to my crafting supplies. I got my washi tapes within 3 days so I still have time to join Weeklies 16. hehehe!

This project was inspired by "Cath Kidston" pattern so I made a Purse Gift Card Holder and Woman Gift Tag using We R Memory Keepers washi tape, Sizzix  Pearlescent Medium and Ohuhu Markers.
