APC Challenge - Week 24

Hmmm ...... Week 23?  Yes, it IS coming, just not on this post!

The prompt for Week 24 of the
Altered Playing Card Challenge
is Washi Tape

Add a variety of different but co-ordinated washi tapes to both playing cards.

Card #1

Stamp, emboss and colour an image.  Cut a circle and attach to washi tape as this will help the stamped image stand out.  I cut out the caterpillar (Stampotique) and popped him on dimensionals.  I added a word and all finished!

 Card #2

Die cut an image and using the surrounding area, stamp over the top.  I used a script stamp from Kaisercraft for this step.  Adhere it over the top of the card, allowing the washi tape to show through.  A word was added and again, all finished!

Both these cards were simple and very easy to put together.   

Looking through my mix of washi tapes, I realised that they really needed to be grouped by colour, so I now have three take-away containers, one with black/white tapes, another with blue/green/purple tonings and a third with the remaining mix of colours.  I also realised I have nothing in yellows, so when I'm visiting The Stitches & Craft Show next weekend, I'll see what can be done to remedy this situation!

I'll be back with Week 23 before you know it, so stay tuned!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Realizing you didn't have any yellow washi tape and needed to go shopping made me laugh, Helen. But, seriously, I love your take-away container storage system for the tape you do have! I have mind in a huge glass cylinder which is now overflowing. But, back to your APCs today. I saw the first one and thought, Oh, how cute! But, then I saw the second and fell in love with your butterfly! Love the idea of using up washi tape!!
