Just Sayin: Glitter and Washi Tape!

 I was so excited about getting back into my MDS and sharing a scrapbook page with you, that I completely forgot to share, that the 2014 Occasions Catalogue opened on Friday! How fun is that!?!  If you haven't check it out yet, you really should! It's amazing!!!

I haven't really been able to get my hands on too much of the new catalogue...yet. But when I first saw it, I knew immediately, that my first purchase was going to be the "Just Sayin'" Bundle and the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape! I absolutely love all the little speech bubbles and the matching framelits!

Today's card features both of the products and an old technique that I transformed by using the washi tape.

Do you remember an old technique of making a glittery window with packing tape? (If not, check out the technique here.) Well, I got thinking... "Why couldn't I apply the same theory to washi tape?" So... I did!
Using the speech bubble framelit, I big shot it out of the centre of my card front. I then turned it over, applied washi tape over the opening in strips and then dumped my glitter on it and Volia!
To help it stand out I placed a piece of white card stock behind the washi tape because it's a bit see through.
So... What do you think? (click on the photo for a close up view) I really like how it turned out and I don't know why I didn't think of it before.

Well thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Happy Creating!

  3. I'd never seen the "glittery window with packing tape" technique. The Washi tape card is so unique. Love it and thanks for the link to the technique.
