Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop


WOO HOOO! Happy dancing with the entire September 2018 Release Washi Tape Release! Feeling privileged to be on the Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop Roster and having a chance to create with some of the goodies:))
****If you are hopping along from the beginning, you should be arriving from the ever clever, and Most talented, Norine Borys' blog.

Here is a card I made mostly from Washi Tapes, before venturing to other mixed media projects!





Check out my video showing the creation of the card, start to finish:) You can watch the video below or in HD at my YouTube Channel.



                                   
Altenew Washi Tapes used:
Galaxy Washi Tape
Gilded Ombre Washi Tape
Glitter Flurries Washi Tape

Signature HELLO die cut from gold paper.
********************
All the washi tapes are BEAUTIFUL and can make anything look amazing!
So I couldn't help but add Gilded Ombre Washi Tape to my 
Plain Jane tape dispenser and fussy cut a few Glitter Flurries blooms to adorn my WaterColor 36 pan set.

 ************************
To make finding all my Crisp ink mini cubes easier, I added Washi tape around the edges of the storage case. Each case holds the corresponding color palette of cubes:))

WASHI on EVERYTHING!!
  
Yes, even on a water-bottle!
The Mandala Die set, cut from Watercolor Nebula Washi Tape, really dresses up this otherwise boring steel water bottle.
******************
I then moved on to stitching my own hand-bound notebook covered with Watercolor Nebula Washi Tape. It's such a happy place to keep my STITCHING project ideas tucked inside:) 
I even taped up a few paperclips for added FUN!


The washi taped cover is Heat embossed in gold using the Floral Art stamp set and then I stitched just a the simple sew in love, from Oval Embroidery Hoop die set.


****************************
And for one final project celebrating the new Washi Tape release and my Grand-daughter:


The Party Banner & Pocket Banner Dies are so festive  cut from # 110 cardstock and covered in washi, then embellished with Mega Alpha dies, also washi taped.

 The tiny ribbon tags on each side of the Pocket banners are washi tapes folded over onto themselves. Then stapled together and clipped on with micro clothes pins:)



Here is the list of all washi tapes used in this FUN bunting project.
Washi tapes used for the banner:
Painted Fantasy Washi Tape
Washi Used to cover Mega Alpha Dies:
Red Ombre Washi Tape
Washi used to make tiny ribbon tags:
Swirlies in Pink Washi Tape
Leaf Washi Tape
Gold Glitter Tape

Stunning proyects! Thanks for sharing

Sherrie J. said...

Okay...that does it! Why have I NOT been a subscriber to your blog & YT channel??? Every single one of these creations is to die for! I love what you've done with the cards...especially using three different washi's on the first one. And that water bottle??? Yikes...gotta make me one of those...but now I have to buy the die!! The little handmade notebook is adorable. And that banner? So pretty. So...you've got a new fan here :-)

Mirella said...

May I just say... I don't think I want to hop anymore!? I just want to stay here on your blog and keep admiring everything that you made! OH.MY.WORLD! Everything is absolutely amazing. I was already blown away with the first card - I mean, how genius is the way you combined all these different washis!? And then I just kept scrolling and scrolling and... WOW... I need a break now, haha!

LauraJane:) said...

Thank you, Annette, for your encouragement and question. I did nothing but wipe the accessories with an alcohol wipe to make sure they were free of lint and oils. These washi tapes from Altenew stick to themselves very nicely, only a clean surface is needed!

Jean said...

Who knew you could do such things with washi! Thank you for the inspiration!

Wendy Lambert said...

I was hoping someone would do this. I picture this washi tape on so many things! Love all of your projects. I love the combinations on your card!

Merrie said...

Oh my, I would never have thought to use Washi tape on so many things! If I had some I would be boring and use it on cards, but maybe with your inspiration I could expand my horizons.

Brithzi said...

Wow! You really went all out. Your card is fabulous and all the other projects are wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration.

Terrie D. (StarSpry) said...

Wow! I love all the ways you used the new washi tapes! They are so fun :)

Mrsfish02 said...

Laura Jane you are so imaginative... love all of your projects. I think these tapes will be a great addition to my crafting and card making arsenal. You definitely have me thinking...

Michele K. Henderson said...

I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw your combination of Glitter Flurries and Galaxy! It looks AMAZING! And then, as I kept reading, project after project of wash goodness! WOW! I loved your ideas of adding letters to the banners, so pretty! Also, I would use the wash to decorate some of these little boxes that I have! That is an AWESOME idea!

Andrea Hastilow said...

Such beautiful projects to have done with the gorgeous new tapes, is there anything left without tape now or your family to worried to go to sleep just in case you decorate them pretty with fab patterns in their bedsbeds. Some inspiring ideas thank you.

Cyndi said...

Wonderful projects. The first card is exquisite. Love the way you used two washi tapes from this gorgeous release.

Unknown said...

Altenew has done it again! Another stunning release in the books!

Linnea S said...

how fun! luv the first mash-up with a few different designs of washi. but did you washi the potty too?

Sue D said...

Love the creative ways you have used washi tape! I may give some of them a try.

Anne Lee said...

This post made my day! I love your enthusiasm for washi - my mom uses washi on so many things too and this really reminds me of her. The idea to use the washi as a colour guide for the tin boxes is so clever!

Annalisa said...

What must it be like to live in your brain? It seems like creativity comes out of every pore all the time. And it's really good to know the sticking power of this washi. I have been victim to cheap washis that do not want to stay stuck, but these (as I would expect of Altenew) look more durable. I'd be interested to see a follow up of your water bottle in particular, because of the water that it will have to contend with and the intricate die cut. Thanks for sharing all your creativity with us!

hernandez.monica077@gmail.com said...

Wow! You really went to town, I can imagine its hard to stop going ince you get started with these beautiful designs lol. Love all the projects you created

Sarina P said...

Oh wow.. I can see myself doing the same thing with these gorgeous tapes... Washi on everything!!

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Love how you decorated your storage tins. Cleaver idea. TFS

McStamper said...

Love your wonderful and creative ideas. The banner is fabulous.

karenelr said...

YOU went to town!! What amazing projects! These are so beautiful and fun!

LauraJane:) said...

Thank you Annalisa! The water bottle needed a coat of Modpodge or some other sealer to help contend with constant use and contact with water. Thanks for asking!
