Welcome to a fun blog hop! Altenew has released new wide washi tapes which I absolutely love. I used them before in my videos sharing ideas on how to make cards with them. So today I am sharing even more inspiration with wide washi tapes showcasing the new designs. This is also part of an inspirational blog hop with lots of giveaways.

card 1

For my first card I used the Misty Meadows Washi Tape ( ALTN ). this is wide enought to cover up a card front completely and it has foiled details on top. With such a stunning background you can go just with a sentiment for a complete card. The hello was cut out using the Fancy Hello Die( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) and the rest of the sentiment is included in the Delicate Flower Bed Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS | SBC ).

card 2

For my second card I combined the Gold String Washi Tape ( ALTN ) with the Golden Trim Washi Tape ( ALTN ) to create a decorative element at the base of my card.I then cut out leaves from the Misty Meadows Washi Tape ( ALTN ) and used them as focal points to embellish around my sentiment. The sentiment is from the  Weekend Doodles Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ).

card 3

For this card I used the Teal Shadow Washi Tape( ALTN ). Isn’t the color just stunning?! I looked through my stash to find a cardstock that matched that teal color and I think I found the perfect match. I die cut the letter A using the Mega Alphabet A Die( ALTN | SSS | SBC ). It’s the perfect way to personalize a card with your recipients initials. To embellish my card even more I also fussy cut some of the flowers from the washi tape to pop them on top.

card 4

For the last card for today I used the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape ( ALTN ). This is a really wide washi tape with gorgeous floral designs in back and white. You can use it as it is or add some color on it like I did. I tried my alcohol markers and I was really suprised to find out that they actually worked and dried too. At the beginning it seems as the alcohol beads up on top of the washi tape but the end result is really cool. The colors dry paler that they actually are and they give that sepia look you can see in the photo below.

  36. This new washi tape is fantastic! Not only is it beautiful, but it allows you to use the designs more than one time and in more than one way. Plus it is self-adhesive making it “ready to go.” I am so glad you used the markers. I wondered if the texture of the tape would allow for any type of coloring and it seemed to work really well. All of your cards are fantastic, by the way, and I was sad to see the video end. (I was ready to see more cards!) 🙂

  53. I bought the washi tape and made these beautiful cards. I used a tool to press my washi tape to the card stock so it wouldn’t peel up. My washi tape is peeling up . How do get my tape to stick down permanently?
