Three Amigos April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month our projects will feature washi tape. The Seasonal Expressions 2 idea book debuted yesterday chock full of paper crafting goodness. The two new washi tape packs were just begging to be used together on a card. I pulled out the new Wavy Blooms stamp set, a few of my Shin Han Markers, White Daisy Cardstock, and the Boardwalk and Carnival Washi Tape Packs and got to work. I wasn't sure about the bright colors at first, but love how vibrant the card turned out.

The thin washi tape is perfect for creating a woven plaid design. You can see how the colors show through at the intersections.

I kept the inside simple, adding a touch of washi tape and a Kraft Cardstock mat.

As I was cleaning up my studio the other day, I came across a few scraps of Snowhaven Paper and extra Cricut cut tags. I decided to assemble the pieces and make a few tags that can go on gifts or adorn a card. I used the thin Glacier Washi Tape on the Slate Twist Ties as an experiment and liked the result. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the cup has "Bitty Sparkles" steam coming from the top.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they have created for you!
