AAA Cards - Game #69 One Stash Favourite

The new challenge at AAA Cards starts today and we're wanting to see you feature one favourite  from your stash.

My choice was to use washi tape. I'm totally addicted to buying washi, use it all the time in my MAMBI planner, but never enough on cards. So this was rectified.

I started by applying three different washi tapes in strips on a piece of scrap card. Then I ran it through my Cuttelbug using the Happy Birthday die - cool effect! And so many colour options too - note to self, do this technique more often!

I then die cut a stitched square and inlaid it back into the card base to keep everything nice and flat and adhered the washi die cut on top.

Dies: Lil'inker, Happy Birthday; Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Washi from my stash

So what's going to be your stash favourite pick? Whatever it is remember to keep your card CAS with some yummy empty, non patterned 'white' space. And be sure to take a peek at both our wonderfully talented Guest Designer Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin and the AAA Cards DT cards too!

I'm popping this card into the Happy Little Stampers die challenge.

Thanks for looking today, so pleased to have you visit.  And keep crafting!

  1. This is a really cool idea and gives such a funky look. I don't own any washi tape!

  2. When I first saw this I had no idea this was washi!!! Omg i am totally stealing this idea :) what a fabulous super CAS card.

  3. What a neat and clever use of washi tape Jane and I had a feeling you might have this item as your fav having seen your stash in the past on a photo!!! Great work with the die too.

  4. Great idea to combine washi tapes and dies, Jane. Thank you so much for inviting me as GD for this game. - Sweet Kobylkin

  5. I love the combination of word dies and wash tape. This is fantastic Jane.

  6. What a clever idea to prep a card with washi tape before die cutting it! I now know how to use my huge stash of washi tapes. Makes a really elegant CAS card.

  7. How sweet! I love buying Washi tape too but I rarely use it! go figure LOL You inspire me to break it out and give it a try again!!
