Craft Hoarders Anonymous May 2016 Blog Hop

Welcome to the 
Craft Hoarders Anonymous May 2016 Blog Hop!

You should be coming here from Teresa Horner's blog, Victorian Paper Queen. If you get lost along the way, or want to start at the beginning, head to Gloria Stengel's blog, Scraps of Life, for a full list of participants.

This month I decided to play with my stash of washi tape and ended up with a trio of cards to share. 

Pieces of five green washi tapes were collaged on a white cardstock panel and then the piece die cut with a Poppystamps Boddington Tree Border die.

A full diecut is adhered to a white panel, a second tree border die cut from New Leaf cardstock and only the outside edge adhered over the washi diecut.

The sentiment is added before the panel is popped up on the New Leaf card base.

For this second card, the tree border is cut out of a white panel which is then backed with adhesive paper. The green tree outline is inlaid first and then a second washi collage die cut laid over the opening and the little pieces pushed through onto the panel.

You can see how all the die cut pieces are flush with the panel. The same sentiment is heat embossed on the card base before the panel is added.

For the third card, a trimmed piece of the left over washi outline die cut is adhered to a watercolored panel.

Thanks for sticking with me through this post - I hope I've inspired you to use your washi hoard in a different way!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Wow, wow, wow! What a unique design with Washi tape! These are fabulous. You have inspired me to pull out the container I have that is filled with unused tapes! Thanks, Jacquie!

  2. I did not think you could show me a new idea with washi, but you did! I love this! I love the little outline card as much as the other two! So cute! Now, I should pull out my container of unloved washi....right??? LOL

  3. Oh, those little trees are so cute and I LOVE the creative way you have used the washi!!!! A trio of loveliness!!!
    Have a great day!!!

  4. Who would have thought die cut washi tape could make such lovely cards. And doing different techniques for each. Very creative, Jacquie.

  5. I agree with Vicki-above. My first thought was WOW. Love every one of your green tree and washi tape cards. Thanks so much for sharing how you did them.

  6. Wow Jacquie what a wonderful collection of cards. Talk about the perfect die cut to use for all that green tape, just brilliant. All three cards are stunning. Next up an Autumn collection I reckon. Love that die.

  7. Gorgeous use of that washi tape, Jacquie!

  8. Fabulous trio of cards. Very pretty.

  9. I remember you sending the first card to me with some embellishment goodies I won I think on a blog hop. I have so admired that card and wondered how you made it so beautiful. Now I see how you used washi tape. I think I need to buy myself this darling tree border die so I can use it for CAS card designs. I am not sure I fully understand how you did it. But I am thinking that you die cut the washi tape one and then also die cut a separate green one and then adhered them together.


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
