Love My Tapes 2nd Week

Today is my 2nd time my works being featured at Love My Tapes blog. I get to show different ways of using the washi tape again. You can check it out here. Let's get on with it, shall we??

For my 1st card, I used the Akane washi tape to make the flowers. Since the washi tape is pretty sticky, it makes it easy that I don't have to put any glue on the circle base. I basically just did the accordion fold following the circle. The washi tape is sticky but not crazy sticky (just like paint tape, you can reposition it after you just out in on. Warning, it will stick to your paper for good after a while), so I can adjust and readjust the fold. I made this card using Sweet Sunday Sketch # 66

On to the 2nd card. This time, I taped several rows of the Akane washi tape and used Papertry Ink Dahlia die to cut the flower and then stamped it with the Delightful Dahlia set. I actually made this last week using Sweet Sunday Sketch #65, but didn't get to enter it as you can see, we're using it for Love My Tapes today. :)

Finally, my last card. Can you guess where I used it? Hint: so far, I am showing the Akane one (yellow), because that's what I received on my package.

Yep, this time I used only a small piece of the tape. It's behind the button! I need to get the washi tape in different colors, as they all very yummy and very practical to use. Beside the washi tape, Loves My Tapes also offers Permanent Double Sided Adhesive. They works great. Basically, all my cards this past weeks that required any layering were made using Loves My Tape. See my post from yesterday, here, where I used it with tissue paper (1st card). You can't even see it.

What do you think? Would washi tape be on your wish list anytime soon? They have the double sided adhesive special right now, so go and check it out.

Also, just a reminder, you still have time to play Digi Doodle Shop's Best color challenge for a chance to win free stamps & guest designer spot. Thanks for stopping by peeps. May your week be great one! Hugs, Vera.
