Good...er ... afternoon.
It has been rainy and messy the past few days.. which is fine.
We need the rain and I really wanted an excuse to stay home today.
I have had a super busy weekend leaving me little time to create.
That is why you are getting this post SUPER LATE and I hope you will forgive me for that.
This card features the Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamp: Beach Bums.
She is sassy and fun and loves summertime (when it is not raining that is :)
I have been seeing the washi tape (like a printed masking tape) on so many projects as well as in some really fun packages my friend has sent me recently. I have not been able to purchase any of my own, so I looked up tutorials. People have used various things from paper to tissue paper for theirs. I like the see through quality the washi tape has... so the paper is too thick for me.. and I did not have any tissue paper that was thin .... so I found the next best thing! A pack of printed napkins from my daughters birthday part that had never been opened. I thought the dots resembled bubbles well enough.
Here is what I did to create my washi tape:
First, since this napkin was two ply, I removed the white napkin underneath
Next I laid the napkin flat, print side down. I took strips of double sided tape,
cut them to the length I wanted, and laid them carefully over the print I desired my tape to be.
After that I carefully cut around the tape with my fussy cutting scissors and voila!
My own (fake) washi tape.
The real stuff is much prettier, no doubt, but this will do in a pinch! :)
