If you know me, you know I am not a user of washi tape. Don’t get me wrong – I love what other people use washi for, but it just isn’t something I am able to create with for some reason. But in today’s video I show three ways to use washi tape as a tool for stamping. It is fun!
For all of the cards, I used the Studio Calico Double Scoop Card Kit and Bubblegum Add-On Kit. These stamps are delightful! (This video is from the Studio Calico blog – you can see the original post HERE.)
Washi Tape + Stamping #1: Creating a Frame
For my first card, I used the washi tape for masking off a frame for stamping.
I used a mix of my favorite inks (see supply list thumbnails below) and some simple masking…
I like to keep a couple different widths of washi so I can do a variety of frame sizes.
Washi Tape + Stamping #1: Multi-Inking

Again, the inks are listed below. Oh, and I even masked off part of the greeting to change up the message…

I love the look of a miter joint in woodwork, etc. So I decided give it a try with washi masking and a border stamp…
Simple… yet it work so well!
So there you have it… 3 ways to use washi without really using it. LOL. I would love to hear what your favorite use of washi is!
