Technique Tuesday – Diagonal Washi Tape!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This one is fun and simple and you can use with any of the products you have at home – washi tape and stamp set of your choice!

Affectionate Washi Tape,

The super bright colors and fun pattern make this card so cheery and amazing! You might have remembered me making a similar card a few weeks ago, check that out here! That one was just the Washi Tape background but this one I added in the stamping. It was really simple and easy to do so don’t fret and keep on reading!!!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Washi Tape of your Choice, Stamp Set of your Choice

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and placed a strip of the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape diagonal across the paper (around the middle). The angle doesn’t matter, that is all up to you. I always try to start around the middle rather than the top or bottom because it allows for a good, long template rather than the little corner piece. Now that you have your base piece down, you can stamp a greeting or image above the washi tape. This can be anything you wish. I used the Love & Affection Stamp Set for the greeting and flowers. I used Cucumber Crush Ink, Night of Navy Ink, and Watermelon Wonder Ink. I stamped only the greeting at this time and filled in the flowers once I was all done. Now that you have your greeting on there, you can add another strip of Washi Tape above it at that same angle. Then stamp again and repeat until the entire cardstock is filled up. You will want to stamp each time so that you have enough room between each strip of Washi Tape. I off-set all of my greeting and used different colors. You could always add the greeting to one of the strips and filled the rest in with flowers or the image of your choice or you can stamp the greeting in each strip. It is all up to you! That’s why I love this card! You can do it at any angle, any stamped image, any colors, any washi tape. No rules, just lots of crafty fun!!! I layered this piece onto Night of Navy (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then onto a Watermelon Wonder card base!
