Love My Tapes

Today, I am featured on Love My Tapes. So excited!! A couple months ago, I was chosen as one of the lucky person that get to try their products, which include permanent adhesive and the popular washi tape.

I have to say, I do love the versatility of the washi tape. They are pretty to start with and you can use them for quick border or go for more elaborate stuff. Washi tapes is from Japan and kind of like paint tape, except they're way prettier. One roll will last you a good while as the roll is pretty thick. You can find them here.

And, if you read my previous post a couple days ago, you know I've been talking about how I find it challenging working with the color yellow. LOL.  Being spotlighted, I was worried if the cards I made were too simple. But, then again, that's my card style and at the end I chose to stay true to my style. So, let's see what I came up with. Here's the 1st card.

 Here, I taped several row of Akane washi tape on white cardstock and stamped it with the flower from Papertrey Ink Friends Till The End set. Used white embossing powder to match the brightness of the daisy on the tape. The tape can be embossed, just be careful not to bend the cardstock afterwards, cause it can flake. Otherwise it works like a charm. Next is the 2nd card I made.

This second card, I simply used the Akane washi tape for borders. Since, I don't usually use yellow cardstock, I don't keep them in stock. In occasion like this, the washi tape is awesome when all you want to do is to add a bit of that certain color as border. The cat is from Penny Black, colored with Prismacolor pencils. Greeting from Hero Arts.

Please let me know what you think. And don't forget to check Love My Tapes blog. Next week, I'll have more cards featured and hopefully this week, I'll have more inspiration on using yellow! I really appreciate any comments you leave and each time, I hope I am able to inspire you to create. Thank you for sharing this exciting day with me. Hugs, Vera.
