VCMP Challenge #8 Washi Tape

It's finally my turn to post for the Virtual Card Making Party at Operation Write Home. If you haven't heard about this fun weekend please check out the details of the VCMP! My challenge for you is to use Washi Tape on your cards.

I used several widths, colors and patterns of washi tape on my card. And then embossed over the top with a Sizzix Chevron embossing folder. The image is from the February Doodle Pantry release called Love Star colored with Bic markers. The sentiment is from the same set cut out with one of the Spellbinders Trio Tag dies. I sponged over the sentiment with Stampin' Up Certainly Celery and Pink Passion. I popped up the front panel with pop dots. I have several other samples of cards that I used washi tape on: Paper Pieced Balloons and Butterfly.
I have two prize packages to offer up today for two lucky winners. I will choose one winner randomly from comments and one winner randomly from those who enter the challenge. U.S. only please.

Here's the bag of stamps for the random comment winner.

And the prize for the challenge winner. A baggie with embellishments and other goodies and a sentiment stamp set from My Favorite Things. I hope you will join in the challenge.
I will draw and announce winners for the prizes on February 25th when InLinkz closes. Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying this VCMP weekend!

Donna, thank you for hosting a VCMP challenge! This one will really get me outside my box, but that's what I love about challenges. I don't use washi tape very often.

Vicki said...

Oh my goodness -- What a challenge -- I am not sure I own any washi tape -- so this is a real challenging challenge for me LOL. I like the bright colors in your card -- great idea embossing over the top. Thanks for hosting this challenge.

I have washi tape and have never used it - I guess now would be a good time.

Marsha said...

Pretty card, Donna. I don't have any Washi tape. Keep meaning to get some. I like how you embossed after putting on the tape. Thanks for your participation with OWH.

I bought some washi tape for scrapbooking a while back, but haven't tried it on cards, so this will be fun! Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! Thanks for hosting this challenge!

Gorgeous card - I love the idea of embossing the tape on the cardstock! I have tons of washi tape, and am always looking for ideas on how to use it with cardmaking. Thanks!

Your card is gorgeous. I have the perfect card idea for your challenge. I have washi tape but haven't used it much so this is a great challenge.

How embarrassing... I must admit that Washi tape is something that I have not invested in yet :) Some day I will find some and participate in this challenge! I am getting loads of inspiration from your entries!

I am visiting my sister south of Bloomington this weekend. Just too funny to me that I found your blog. Go, Purdue!!

sandybear76 said...

I love the card. I got a washi tape dispenser for Christmas and not all of the tape will fit in the dispenser. Thanks for the great card so I can use my stash of washi tape.

Rosie Guiher said...

Donna your card is so sweet. Love how all the colors of the flower are also in the tape. I haven't gotten any of this tape so can't play along. And this is my first time seeing the blog for this,lol.

Leslie Hanna said...

EEEEP! I have a room full of washi tape. I'm off to play!

Love the way you use washi tape as it is so colorful and pretty. I like the dry embossing too. Nice folder.

Have tons of Washi tape and I never think to use it. Thanks for the opportunity to pull it out and use it.

Ann said...

I only have a few rolls of Washi Tape. I always think it looks so nice of everyone's cards, but struggled using it myself. Thanks for a great challenge that made me use it!

Sandi said...

I only have 3 rolls of washi tape all from Secret Santa swaps with various crafting groups. I really stuggle using it and have contemplated giving it away. Thanks for the challenge of using it.

heather said...

Gasp, I own no Washi tape whatsoever, but I made do to make a card for your fun challenge. I like how bright and cheery your sample is, sure to make someones day.

Lucy said...

I'm away from my craft area this weekend, but am checking in on the VCMP participants and getting such good ideas. I have a few rolls of the Washi tape and will try this out when I return. It (and embossing folders) are both relatively new in my cardmaking arsenal, so I'm thankful for the spark of an idea. Thanks for the beautiful card to CASE and for taking part in the VCMP and supporting OWH.

Linda said...

Sorry I could not find my two rolls of Washi...I had one other roll and I used it all up! Great challenge...love your idea of embossing it...Thanks for hosting!!!

sf_crafter said...

Thanks very much for hosting this challenge and for your card sample. I have a few rolls of Washi tape but have never used them. Now I have a reason to pull them out and play with them.

I know I should jump on this challenge. Still trying to get my feet wet after being gone for several weeks....tend to forget tihings. All your cards are wonderful...I do love the liftle airplane....brought the child out in me. I don't quite understand what pic to put in your link? Perhaps just one of the challenges from the five challenges. It's still early and I haven't had all my coffee....haha

Sue D said...

Great card and challenge. I like how you embossed over the washi tape.

Donna,

Thanks for the inspiration to get some washi tape from my LSS and give it a try!

Carol L said...

Thanks for an inspiring and fun challenge to use Washi tape! I love how you embossed yours right into the cardstock! The colors are so spring-like and pretty, and I must add some colors like this to my washi supply!

Kelly said...

Now I need to get some Washi tape just for this challenge!!!!

Susan said...

thanks for the great challenge! this was my first time using washi tape!

I like how you embossed the washi tape too. I'm probably one of the last 10 cardmakers on the planet that have not purchased any washi.

croppinmama said...

Nice use of washi tape plus embossing it,too. Never thought of doing that. Just got some, so need to try your idea. Thanks for hosting and for the blog candy.

Amelia Andrade said...

I've never used Washi tape. I went out to 2 of my local chain craft stores and couldn't get any so I ended up youtube'ing and making my own. I really like how it came out so thanks so much for challenging me with a new product and technique!

Sherry Hickey said...

I don't think my comment posted so let's try again. I simply love your card and the colorful tapes you used. I had never tried washi tape before so I was super excited to have a reason to! Thanks so much for the challenge ~

Dawn Frost said...

i've never used Washi tape before but after seeing your card I'm going to have to try it! Very nice!

Deanna M said...

@ Tami B. I'm one of those ten card makers who haven't bought any either so don't feel bad LOL.

Donna, thank you so much for hosting this challenge. I had fun even if my card will never leave my office/craft room! Maybe I'll do what Amelia Andrade did and you tube and make my own. btw Donna your cards are fantastic keep up the good work

rscholz said...
