Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. Today we’re going to have some fun with Washi Tape. There are so many different ways you can use washi tape. I will cover just a few different ideas today. Yesterday I posted this light up card made with vellum and a battery operated votive candle. You can see that post here. I covered the candle for the card in matching washi tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. It has copper in it just like the Designer Series Paper I used.
If you follow my blog, you know how I like everything to match. I think it makes a nice presentation especially when giving as a gift. Here is a matching gift tag and birthday card made with the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape. There are so many possiblities! I even made 2 different gift tags to choose from. The sentiment is from Birthday Banners and the banner on the tag is cut from the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.
I love this washi tape card. I CASed the card design from Pinterest (PiasCreativeWorld.blogspot.com) and made it in the classic navy and white. I use a cutting mat with grids to help keep the washi tape straight when sticking it on the cardstock. It is easy to lift off and just fold the ends back for a nice clean edge.
The washi tape makes quick and easy birthday candles. I used the Festive Flower Builder Punch to make the flames and the Bow Builder Punch to make the bow.
You can also make quick & easy tags with dies. Here I placed washi tape from Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape on to my cardstock then cut it out with an ornament from the Delicate Ornament Thinlits. I added some Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine and it’s ready for you to write on the back or just stamp to: and from: using the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Set.
This next project is a great one to do with kids to make thank you notes for Christmas. I used the Warmth & Cheer Designer Washi Tape for this project. The sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set. You can even use washi tape on the envelopes!
This next card was sent to me from my upline, Susan Itell. She used Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape on this card.
As you can see there are lots of ways to use washi tape and lots of choices too! Click Here to see all the different Designer Washi Tape. I store my washi tape in a clear container intended for eye glasses that I purchased from Amazon. I like that I can see exactly what I have so I’ll remember to use it.
Sometimes I cut my envelopes down if I make a square card. Washi tape works great to seal the sides. Here’s a card I shared previously where I showed how I did that. You can click on the photo to see the post with all the details.
Yesterday I shared that I was having visitors for lunch and some stamping fun. Here’s a picture of me with Ramsey and Susan…The Three Stampateers! LOL
Here’s my Back to School Special for today…With the purchase of $25 or more from my online store I will send you a roll of washi tape so you can have some fun and start creating. Be sure to enter the Hostess Code 7CNZAUYM when you check out. (I’ve included a visual below.)
Have a Wonderful day!

Oh, seeing you all together makes me even more excited for November! I hope Ramsey is going – she has been such an encourager to me through blog comments and such. I love your Washi tape ideas, Jeanie. My Washi Tape doesn’t get the love it deserves. I would love to get a link to that eyeglass case you have. Maybe if it was in something I could see through, I would use it more!! You are almost through the alphabet! I can’t wait to see what comes next 🙂
Ah, Karen, I so wish I could join everyone in Atlanta!!! Silly previous commitment. I will be there in spirit!!!!
Ramsey hi, do you have a blog also? I’d love to see your cards too.
I love using washi tape! So does Armani so I sometimes have to hide it! Love your container where you store yours. Might have to look into purchasing one of those!
I like having everything within view and easy reach. If you see it you will use it! I know you will have fun getting everything all set up in your own space!
I love your Washi post!!!! Great cards! Great ideas!!! I can say that these are absolutely beautiful in person!!!! No only that but you are a GREAT hostess!!!!
Thanks Ramsey! I’m already looking forward to the next time!
Oh, I wish I lived closer to you all. Jeanie, if you didn’t know Susan is my upline too. We tried to meet in July, but it didn’t work out. I am not able to go to Atlanta so I won’t meet all the wonderful SU Pals.
I am loving the ABCs of stamping and very sad that it is coming to an end. You don’t know how many times I think of this in one day. I like this washi tape card and can actually make it right now, because I have all the supplies. I love the crisp navy & white with a touch of yellow flames.
Have a great evening.
Hi Nancy, I am so new to all this technology! I don’t have a blog. The closest I come is my Pinterest page. https://www.pinterest.com/srmalex/ The board My Stampin Up Cards are the ones that I have created that are 99% my ideas. The other boards are all my inspiration!
Hi Nancy! I think that makes us Stampin’ Sisters! LOL Sorry you are not able to make it to Atlanta. I am combining the trip with an opportunity to visit with my daughter who is there for college.
Stampin’ Sisters!!!! Love it! Now have about 15 Sisters!!!!! Never had one! YEA!!!!
Thanks Ramsey. At least I know Pinterest, I don’t post as much as I would like. I’m Nancy Farrell, Massapequa, NY.
