Going Wild with Washi Tape

Hi everyone!

I’m Christina, from the Crafty Card Gallery Design Team. This months challenge was to create a card using a new technique. I decided to use Washi Tape with layers of gesso and acrylic paint on top. The beauty of this technique is – you can still see some of the tape after adding the mediums. I also switched it up a bit, and used burlap as my foundation.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.


#1 Dad Easel Card

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and this month we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3″x6″ cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and error…I tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6″x6″ cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6″x11″ with folds at 4″, 4″,1″,1″,1″ from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.

I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card. 

Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father’s day card finished and need to create one more. 🙂

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! 🙂

Something new

The challenge this month was to try something new. 

I am embarrassed to say that my “new” was using my Cricut – for the first time in over two years!  It was like starting from scratch! I had bought the art booking cartridge but it was brand new in the box..  I just haven’t used my cricut since I got my cameo. 
Well welcome back Cricut!

Happy 21st Eric!!!
