Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Today I am looking at creative ways to add washi tape to your cards. These washi tapes from Altenew are very wide and cover an entire card base. They are so gorgeous and you get so much on a roll. I can't wait to create gift bags and boxes with this pattern as well! My cards today are a part of Altenew's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop. I am so grateful to be a part of the event! I also tried to use my absolute favourite Altenew products in today's video! 

I thought I would share a little about Altenew! I first discovered Altenew when I saw their Roses Layering Stamp about three years ago. I had to have it! Since then, I've developed such a love for Altenew! My favourite thing (aside from the flowers) about Altenew is their beautiful sentiments. They are always so unique, heartfelt and personal.

I created this card below by die cutting the Monochrome washi tape. I placed the washi tape on paper first to add thickness and stability. Then I die cut the Thinking of You image. When I was finished, I had two cards – one of the sentiment and one with the shadow of the sentiment. 

In order to make things stand out, I had to outline the image to keep it from getting lost on the white background. I think the black strip really makes the card pop – not only is the sentiment from the Dearest Friend Stamp so pretty in white, it truly is so encouraging! 

Here is the second card. I pieced all the little pieces back in to make the sentiment legible and I adore this background!

My second card features the Dotted washi tape and I used that as a background as well. I wanted to create another bold sentiment, so I created my own using the Bold Caps Alphabet die! The stamped sentiment is from another favourite stamp set of mine, Wings of Hope.

This background needed a pop of colour so I sprayed some Antique Gold spray on the background. I was able to add the rest of the letters and then emboss the sentiment on black.
