Release

There are fabulous Washi Tapes and Embossing Paste being released today and all are now available for purchase at the Altenew store. This is my first time of using the washi tapes in cardmaking. They come in different sizes and they could be used in different ways. The quality is awesome and they’re very easy to work with. Also, I love the new embossing paste! You can add texture and dimension to your projects! The paste can be tinted with paints and inks.

Projects

I have six cards for you. Hope you’ll like them! 🙂

Misty Meadows Washi Tape

For my first card, I used a beautiful Misty Meadows Washi Tape. It features pretty watercolor leaves elements with gold foil accents and I decided to use it as a background for my card.

altenew-misty-meadows-washi-tape-cards-alexsyberiaI stamped a sentiment from the  One Day at a Time Stamp Set onto sand cardstock. Then I adhered a string and the sentiment onto the background and mounted it onto a card base. Very easy!

Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape

For the next card I used Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape.

altenew-botanical-rhapsody-washitape-alexsyberiaI had a different idea in my mind, but when I applied the tape on a white card base I thought that it’s so beautiful in itself. I decided to add a sentiment from the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set, white heat embossed on gray cardstock and added an additional pink stripe for the more attractive look. (I colored a white stripe with Zig Art&Graphic Twin Pink marker)

Gold String Washi Tape

The next card features the Gold String Washi Tape. This tape is very modern and elegant, and that inspired me to create a simple but elegant card.

altenew-gold-string-washi-tape-garden-picks-alexsyberiaI decided to use the negative die cut panel I made using Garden Picks 3D Die.

I stamped a sentiment from the Trendy Circles Stamp Set onto the panel.

altenew-garden-picks-gold-string-washi-tape-alexsyberiaThen I adhered the tape onto a white card base and foam mounted the panel. To finnish off my card I added a few gold sequins.

Teal Shadow Washi Tape

I love love love the Teal Shadow Washi Tape! This tape features beautiful watercolored floral images in an amazing color. I thought I’d make a card for myself. LOL I needed some encourage words…So, I went through all my stamp sets to find a positive sentiment from Altenew. Here’s what I’ve come up with…

altenew-teal-shadow-washi-tape-alexsyberiaI started to work on my card by stamping a sentiment from the Trendy Circles Stamp Set onto the card base, I then added gold paint splatters. I covered some white card stock with the Teal Shadow Washi Tape and fussy cut out lots of flowers. I then covered white card stock with the Gold String Washi Tape and die cut one letter A and several leaves. I used Mega Alphabet Die – letter A and Garden Picks 3D Die. Also, I used sand cardstock for some leaves.

altenew-teal-shadow-gold-string-washi-tape-alexsyberiaI added some glue to the A and before gluing it down, I tucked some washi flowers and leaves under it. All the other flowers I adhered on the A. To finish off my card I added sequins.

Embossing Paste – Dimensional Backgrounds

altenew-embossing-paste-kaleidoscope-stencil-alexsyberia

To create the backgrounds I first did some ink blending using Altenew Kaleidoscope A stencil and Altenew Ocean Waves ink for the first card and Distress Blueprint Sketch ink for the second card. After it did I taped down Altenew Kaleidoscope B Stencil, colored some Altenew Embossing Paste using Puffy Heart Metallic Shimmer Spray and spread it out over the panel through the stencil. I popped a sentiment from the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set white embossed on black onto the card.

altenew-kaleidoscope-stencil-inks-alexsyberia

For the second card, I did the same but I used Altenew Embossing Paste with no color. I die cut a sentiment with Simply Friend Die (made several layers and glued them together) and added Nuvo Glimmer Paste on the top layer for a more interesing look. I then glued it onto a black stripe and mounted it onto the card panel.
