Welcome to Altenew Washi Tape Release Blog Hop!
I am super excited to share some cards and home decor projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of Nicole Watt, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog 

Feature Washi Tape #1: Grand Stream Altenew-GrandStreamWashiTape-DottedSwirlsCoverDie-DotBotanicalsStamp-RoundedRectanglesDies-Virginia#2


I decided to make a card with shaker element. The larger size of the Washi Tape allows me to create the entire card front. I then took out the Rounded Rectangles Die Set and made a window. Altenew-GrandStreamWashiTape-DottedSwirlsCoverDie-DotBotanicalsStamp-RoundedRectanglesDies-Virginia#3

Inside the window, I stamped Dot Botanicals in yellow, coral and red. Do you love adding textures?

I ran the Washi Taped surface with Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die in my die cut machine
I then filled it with Satin White Sequins and voila!Altenew-GrandStreamWashiTape-DottedSwirlsCoverDie-DotBotanicalsStamp-RoundedRectanglesDies-Virginia#4


Feature Washi Tape #2: Grand Stream, Brushed Grid, Concret Wall, Many Dots

To showcase all the grey Washi tape, I torn them into thin strips and arranged them in a visually appealing way. The Fine Frames Diamonds Die set was used along with

The "hi" sentiment was die cut with Inline Alpha Die Set.

The background was stamped with Fabulous Florets.

WOW Virginia!! You've made some delightful artsy cards!! I wasn't drawn to the wavy stripes, but seeing how you used it on the first card has changed my mind. To me it resembles birch trees when used vertically.
I also love how you used a variety of the tapes in the second card. I like all the different geometric looks the way you put them together. Bravo! Hope you are keeping well.

Wow, what a showcase, Virginia!!! No one makes washi tape like Altenew!!! Love all your cards, I think my favorite washi is the gold splatter on blush!!!
