Today I’m here to show you 2 cards I’ve made using Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape This product comes in different widths & finishes with a ton of designs!
On the first card I wanted to use a variety of tapes and I thought the best way to do that was vinyl records. I loved when my Dad would play his Elvis records on my Grandma’s old stereo system. That thing was HUGE!! It was so big we had the tv on it when it stopped working. It was made of solid wood and had carpet over the speakers lol!!! Anyone else remember those???
I made the records using my Spellbinders “Large Circles” die set, I needed a large full circle, one small circle and then 3 different sized rings. For the base I used the 2 1/2″ full circle and then for the 3 rings I matched the 2 1/2″ with the 2″, the 2″ with the 1 1/2″ and then the 1 1/2″ with 1″. The centers were made by taping down some washi tape onto the cardstock and then using my 1″ circle die cutting out a solid circle. Once all the pieces were glued together onto the large solid circle, I simply punched a hole in the center, used my Prima Time Travelers Memories Collection Stamp (such a long name for a small stamp!), with my Staz-On Jet Black ink to add some script to the record center. I sat back for a minute and realized they needed something more, so, with my Stampin Up Whisper White Craft ink & sponge I wiped the white ink in a couple of areas to give it a highlighted look, but it was still missing something. After a few minutes I realized that the thing missing was the look of vinyl! So with my Ranger Multi Medium Matte I put a thin layer over all the records and Voila!!! I had the look of vinyl!!!
For the record centers I used the following Washi Tapes: Foil Pink Circle, Anchor, Bicycle, Donut, Fan – Orange, Zig-Zag Orange
For the sentiment & message I used Stampin Up’! “Measure of a Life” & “Phrases for a Friend” stamp sets as well as my Image Tree Alphabet Stamp Set.
Because two of the records went over the edge I was able to cut them and use the extra pieces for the inside:
For the next card I wanted to show how washi tape could help you when your creative juices aren’t running high. This Father’s Day card was made using just several items – Stampin Up! Summer Sun & Black cardstock, their “All Holidays” sentiment stamp, black embossing powder, Versamark ink pad, Eyelet Outlet’s Foil Black & Gold washi tape, and some pop-up dots – Easy Peasy right!!
Well I hope you liked todays projects and that they’ve inspired you to create something of your own.
Have a safe and creative day everyone :O)
