Welcome to the Altenew May 2020 Washi Tapes Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. You are arriving from Altenew Card Blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience-. Today, Altenew is releasing a brand new set of colorful and super fun new washi tapes, "YAY!"
The new washi tapes are the perfect combination of color ( who doesn't love a rainbow!) and beautiful more neutral designs that can easily be used in all types of paper crafting. Let me show you what i have created...
After over two months at home, I am in desperate need of a haircut, and since i am keeping a detailed journal of my days, i thought i will bring my favorite combination onto this entry, Black and white with a hint of rainbow.. So i started by typing my journal lines, and then added a strip of the new MANY DOTS washi Tape to the top and bottom of the page.
I wanted the title to stand out, so i attached a piece of INSTANT RAINBOW washi to white cardstock and used the Bold Alpha die to cut the title out. I used small pieces of the same washi to create a strip of rainbow on vellum, and add it to the bottom of the page. To finish, i added a strip of the GRADIENT RAINBOW washi tape to the side of the picture. Love how easy this came together.
Next, i used the CONCRETE WALL washi tape to create the background for my picture. This time, i attached it to a piece of paper and then punched the holes to fit in my album. Then used the left over piece to cut the title for this page using the Fine Alphabet Die set. A few other embellishments complete the entry. Simple and quick!
I think out of all the new releases the GEO RAINBOW Washi Tape is probably a new favorite. I love linear designs, and decided to highlight the small colorful squares in this layout for my doggie's album.
I covered half the page with the BRUSHED GRID Washi Tape. I used the GEO RAINBOW washi to cover a piece of cardstock, and decided to cut away a few of the color squares and replace them with colorful puffy hearts. The cut apart squares were then attached to the page with a bit of foam adhesive to add some dimension to the page.
I used the GRADIENT STREAM washi tape to create the mat for my picture and then used the Script words die to create the title. Just love how the color combination along with the dimension on the grid make the simple page stand out.
I am sure that we all have missed many celebrations while in quarantine, however, i was able to ship presents around, and here is one of the packages that went out (for my sister's bday). Once i wrapped the box, i simply added the BLOCK RAINBOW washi along the center of the box.
To avoid adding bulk to the shipment box, i chose to create a small tag, and added the INSTANT RAINBOW WASHI TAPE to the center of the tag, then added a small sentiment -created using the Handwritten Hello Die Set- . I know this present was a hit! and actually my little sister saved the wrapping paper!
Now, onto the last project of this post. This time, i created a card using the new GOLD SPLATTER BLUSH Washi Tape. I covered a card panel with the washi and decided to glue it onto the card on a slight slant. I used the left over piece of the panel to cut the sentiment using the Script Words die set.
I had a few extra white embossed kraft paper Watercolor Roses, and created a small cluster on the card front. I used a bit of foam adhesive to attach the title, then added a dew of the Antique Gold sequins to complete the card!
As you can see i love working with washi tape, it is probably one of the most versatile products you can have in your stash.
This is all for me! but before you go, it is time for the fun part of this hop: GIVEAWAY time!!!
