Washi Tape Background

I decided to use all the 2015-2017 In Color Wash Tapes for today’s card share.

I took the five colors of Washi Tape and made a pattern over cardstock and then layered it over Watermelon Wonder.

For the sentiment, I used the Apple of My Eye Stamp Set and heat embossed it in white over Cucumber Crush cardstock.  I then layered it over a Tea Lace Doily.

Welcome to my scrapbook!  I have yet to really share with you my first love, before cards, scrapbooking.

I have three kiddos, girl, boy, girl, and when I started I decided to make a scrapbook for them each.  For now it means a lot more work, but in the long run they each have something to call their own.  And honestly, once I get the layout for one, I just do it basically the same two more times.

Scrapbooks - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I began about 2-1/2 years ago and honestly started in the present, so my kids have traditional photo albums of their baby and toddler years.  My kids LOVE their scrapbooks and when I come home from my scrapbook weekend in the fall, it’s not – Hi mommy, we missed you, but – Can I see my scrapbook?

So alas, here we go…

When I set up my double layout, I am not necessarily doing the same event or occasion or even day (although in this one I am) but I like them to be somewhat matchy-matchy.  For this one I used the 2015-2017 In-Colors and Cherry on Top DSP.

You’ll also see that I 99.9% of the time will mat my pictures.  It’s a habit and it can’t be broken.

I also tend to take a ton of pictures and love them all, so my layouts rarely have 2 or less pictures on them.

For what will be the page on the right, I used Cucumber Crush as my background color and highlighted with Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe.  I made a panel of banners using the Cherry on Top DSP, Crushed Curry Ribbon, 2015-2017 Washi Tape and then a detail of a Crushed Curry Button and Linen Thread.

For the page that will be on the left, I used a background color of Tip Top Taupe with the pictures matted in Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.  The sentiment “Hooray” and “You Did It” is also from the Perfect Pairings Stamp Set.

What to do with Washi Tape, oh, what to do with Washi Tape?

Even though it’s such a fun element to use, sometimes it can be puzzling how to use it.

This beautiful DSP paper of Mint Macaron diagonal lines comes from the It’s My Party DSP packet.  This has been my go-to DSP for some days now because not only does it have really fun, bright, vibrant patterns for Birthday Cards, but also simple, clean lines for other generic cards.

So, back to my Washi Tape…

I saw these diagonal lines on the DSP and decided I wanted to mirror them in some way with Washi Tape.  Hence, my card today!  I used the 2015-2017 In-Color Washi Tape to coordinate with the Mint Macaron paper.  The sentiment is from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and is stamped in Tip Top Taupe.  To add a little extra flare, I added a Whisper White ribbon in satin.

Make Your Own Background & Washi Tape

Stumped on which beautiful DSP paper to use?  Make your own!

For my card today I used the Dandelion flowers (are they dandelion, not quite sure) stamped in Tip Top Taupe and the smaller Dandelion flower stamped in Mint Macaron to create my background.  I stamped off first to create a softer look.

Then I took advantage of how quick and yet effective Washi Tape is (in the 2015-2017 In Color) and created both vertical and horizontal lines.  Just to add a little extra touch, I added a flower from the Flower Shop stamp set and a soft Whisper White satin ribbon peaking out from behind.  Add a cute sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration catalog to say “Thank You Kindly” and voila!
