Put A Stamp On It Challenge

September 10th, 2012 by Avital

Washi tape cards

As soon as I saw this cute challenge on Simon Says Stamp’s challenge blog I knew I have to participate.

It’s the perfect challenge to test out all the washi tapes from different brands I’ve been amassing.

Hello washi tape!

If you like it –

Here are my cards -

Washi tape Happy Birthday card

On this card I wrapped an entire mat (which measures 4″ by 5¼”) with strips of washi tape. Then I adhered it to the center of the card fron with foam dots – a ton of them, to prevent it from sinking down. I then aligned my Stepping Stones stamps on my new Fiskars Compact Stamp Press (check out the link below for a good price on Amazon…) and when I needed more than 1 letter, I just used the outlined version… I also stamped one ‘A’ on the flip-side and then stamped the outlined version with Versamark ink and white embossed it on top. I love the quirky look. Great for a masculine birthday card.

Washi tape Hey Y'All card

This time I used the exact same technique, only instead of wrapping a mat, I wrapped three stamped speech bubbles cut-outs from the ‘Hey Y’All’ stamp set. After wrapping it with washi tapes I re-stamped the images with Stazon Jet Black ink and went over it with a permanent marker to make the outline look neater. I also stamped the sentiment and the cute restroom images (how would you call them!?) from that stamp set – again with Stazon and a touch of a permanent marker. To complete the card I added a few washi tape banners on the top left side and outlined everything with the same permanent marker.

So,… what do you think?

      I’m so glad you like it! For your card I used fabric ribbons and adhered them with double sided tape, that I lined the mat with.
