Washi Winter Wonderland

Merry Little Labels Washi Card

Washi Winter Wonderland

The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog.  I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.  Paired up with the Merry Little Labels Bundle, which includes the stamp set and matching punch, the little sentiment makes a wonderful winter card.

Most people really don’t know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making.  It is a simple way to add pattern and color.  But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?

The result is a die cut with a thicker texture and some fun color to boot! Try it out! I set my washi snowflakes on a background of more washi tape as well as stamped snowflakes and rhinestones.

Fun Color Palette 


These fun colors were pul right from the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape in the Stampin’ UP annual catalog.  It had a lot of great patterns and they reminded me of winter time.

Washi Tape is really a great buy too.  It is $8 for this pack of 5 different designs.  If you would like to try out the technique but don’t want to spend even that much, check out the Clearance Rack.  Currently, Stampin’ Up has a few different 5 packs of washi tape for $3.20 each!

Stampin’ UP makes coordination for card making and scrapbooking so easy.  Check out the video below to see all the wonderful paint chip, crackled and watercolor ombre effects in the Color Theory Stack.  So many fun combinations.

I used two on the above card for the banners behind the sentiment.  I also added a touch of the gold foil outlined with the stitched framelits.  This card was CASEd from the annual catalog’s sample.  I love the mini chevron ribbon in this suite.  It is so soft and easy to work with. I added a touch of it tied off with white twine.  The Glitter Enamel dots add a touch of sparkle.
