WONDERFUL WASHI!

This week’s challenge is to use all the wonderful washi tape that you have in your stash!!

Start digging out you favorite tapes that go with your pictures and see all the different ways you can use this fun and versatile embellishment!

Don’t have a washi stash? We’ve got you covered at our sister Etsy shop – Scraps & Ink Crafts – with a variety of colorful washi sets in fun Disney themes!

In fact, just for our friends here at DCC, all of the washi in the shop is 25% off until November 30th!!

Use code: DCCSTASH 

I love using washi on my scrapbooking pages, December Daily, my planner and on the back of my envelopes when I am mailing letters!!

I love the way our Design Team member, Michelle, used washi tape on her page to create arrows that draw your attention right to the photo in the middle of her page. Another wonderful page I am going to have to scraplift!!

Here are a few of Michelle’s close-ups:

Design Team Member, Natalie, created this fun pocket page using bits of washi from the Ariel collection found at Scraps & Ink Crafts HERE.

Let’s check out her awesome details:

I spy two photos with an adorable film strip die cut tucked behind them! Such a versatile shape that can be used in all kinds of fun craft projects! You can find it at Scraps & Ink HERE.

These transparent balloon stickers look so fun with the embossed cloud background!

More bits of glitter and foil accent washi add just the right amount of sparkle and shine to Natalie’s photo of the signage from Voyage of the Little Mermaid. She even topped it off with a matching purple mouse paperclip you can find HERE.

Nancy chose to make a card for this challenge:

This is such a quick and easy card using a fun castle die and strips of washi from the beautiful Cinderella washi set found at Scraps & Ink Crafts HERE. The castle die, also from Scraps & Ink Crafts, can be found HERE. Nancy added the strips of washi to a piece of plain cardstock and layered her castle die cut over the top so the strips are visible in the negative space.

Close-up:

Nancy also used a glittery pink padded mouse head applique for a bit more dimension in the center of her castle. These embellishments come in 2 different multi-color sets you can check out  HERE.

Nancy made this next fun element that could be used on a card, scrapbook page or even a gift tag for that Star Wars fan in your life! It also answers the question- “Can washi be cut with a die?”

The answer is, “YES! Yes it can!”

Nancy started by adding her washi diagonally to a plain piece of cardstock and then used the Star Wars die found HERE to cut out her title.

You could create this same look with any number of dies and washi combinations, but she chose the Star Wars washi set found HERE to use with the Star Wars die because…Star Wars!!!

May the creative force be with you!

I made my own page for this challenge by using washi as a background. I might use this effect in all my Disney Albums!! I mixed and matched the “Storybook Circus” and “Main Street, USA” washi sets found in the shop HERE. The sparkly purple-pink padded mouse head appliques are also from the shop. At $2.75 for a set of 8 in 4 different colors, they’re a steal!

This week’s challenge is super easy- add a bit of washi to your own projects to make them more magical! That’s it!
