Ways With Washi #8

Hello there, DeNami Friends!

It's Emily here today with my August edition of Ways With Washi. Today we are going to take a look at ways to use washi tape to add decorative frames to your cards and papercraftedprojects. I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to give up summer quite yet! So I thought we could hold on to those halcyon days a little bit longer by featuring some of the newest DeNami stamps that I think capture summer perfectly. All three of these adorable chickie stamps have a camping theme, one of my family's favorite summer activities! I couldn't have been more thrilled when these camping stamps were included in last month's new release.

So, let's get to it! Starting off my washi-frame parade today is this card featuring a super-simple frame made with Purple/White Dots washi tape. I simply matted my focal-image panel on a second piece of cardstock and then adhered strips of washi tape along the edges of the central panel, wrapping the washi tape edges around to the back of the mat. Quick and easy!


Next, I made a frame that somehow reminds me of something more rustic, like a twig frame. Red Stripes washi tape was perfect for this project--I used the stripes as cutting guides to create more slender strips of washi tape. Plus, I love the long, lean framing effect that the stripes add to the design!

For my last project for today, I wanted to show you a really fun patchwork style of washi-tape frame! I trimmed a panel of white cardstock just a bit smaller than my card base and then adhered short strips of three different washi tapes all around the edges. There's no need to line up the washi-tape strips; I simply wrapped one edge of each piece around to the back of the panel and varied how much wrapped behind with each piece.


I hope you enjoyed this little camping adventure while we explored a few ways to make frames with washi tape! Be sure to drop my blog, My Little Slice of Bliss, today for the chance to win a roll of washi tape of your very own!

Thanks for joining me today for some more Ways With Washi!

Love each of Emily's cute cards and the way she framed them with the Washi. The mix of tapes on the Girls Night Out card is so cute! I have to give this a try.
Thanks for sharing! :)
