Washi tape card ideas

Hi there!
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Today I have another crafty idea for you: washi tape cards!!!
Have you ever played with them? I haven't really until today. I've had some in my draw for a while and after seeing so many ways of using washi tape I decided to create something myself and share the idea with you. What do u think of my cards?

You can get washi tape anywhere - craft shops, eBay, Amazon.... They come in different sizes, colours, patterns etc. I love to buy sets myself, coordinating colours or themed washi tape are great!

They come in handy when u need a quick card, trust me! Below are just a few cards I made for different occasions. Hope you like them :D

My first card - I used blue patterned washi tape. I arranged it in a square shape, added a ribbon bow to make it look like a gift box, added Happy Birthday sentiment. how simple and how cute is this card!

For my next card I used black & white polka dot washi tape. I added a butterfly in the centre with some golden thread, and card done! probably took me under 5mins to make it! Love it!

For this card I used a set of 3 washi tapes wedding 'themed'. Perfect to create a wedding congratulations card, don't you think? I also cut out a little butterfly (using the same washi tape) and added some sticky pearl gems....
So come on, get yourselves some washi tapes and get creative!

Mother's Day floral picture frame idea

Only few days till Mother's day!!! have you got your gift sorted?
For those who haven't - here is an idea I came up with while shopping for my art supplies.
What do you think??
I absolutely love this frame! All I need now is to print some wording to put inside it... :)
It's quite simple to make. Here is what you need:
picture frame
flowers (foam or paper ones)
paper leaves
ribbon bow
self-adhesive gems
glue gun and glue sticks
And this is pretty much it. If you haven't got a glue gun you could possibly use some other glue, like tacky glue or large glue dots but that might not hold the flowers as well as the hot glue!
So, first, I prepared my flowers. I used foam flowers, 2 different colours. I cut the green ends as I needed my flowers to be flat - makes it easier to glue them.
Next step, I used hot glue gun and arranged the flowers around my frame.
It already looks amazing, doesn't it??
next, I glued some paper leaves around the heart shape. I also used a hot glue gun.
Then added few gems, ribbon bow and here it is!!!
My lovely floral picture frame!!

It looks stunning, doesn't it!!
And you don't need to spend ££ to make it! This cost me just under £4!!
I hope you like my tutorial.
There is still time for you to make a frame like this for your mum!
But whoever you make this frame for, I am sure it will put a smile on their face!!
Thank you for popping in today
happy crafting

Rustic Valentine's card tutorial

Hello. and thank you so so much for trusting me! I know you wouldn't be here now visiting my blog if you didn't believe I would post something nice eventually

So here it is - I had a go at rustic valentine's card, as this is obviously my favourite style.

So today I am going to show you how I made this card, so that you can still do it yourself for that someone special in your life!

here is what you need:
brown kraft card
patterned paper/vellum
love sentiment die
ribbon, lace, jute string
chalk marker
heart die cutter
glue pen, hot glue gun, dimensionals, snail adhesive
You can use any colour card here for the base, as well as any other shape die, sentiments etc depending what occasion you are making the card for. Here is how I made it:
I cut my kraft card to a 6x6 size, and using a tape runner/snail adhesive I glued vellum paper to my card base. I cut the vellum a little bit smaller than 6x6

next, I cut a piece of kraft card measuring about 5" 3/4 x 5" 3/4 and cut out a heart shape in the middle. I simply placed the heart die cutter on the middle of the paper and run it through my big shot machine.
Then, using a ruler and chalk marker I drew lines along the edges to create a frame.
Using some dimentionals or sticky foam pads if you prefer i glued the card onto my card base. That gave me a bit of 3D effect.

All i had to do now is attach a bow and a sentiment. I made a couple of bows but chose smaller one to make sure my card fits perfectly in an envelope.

I used hot glue gun to attach the bow to my card. I guess you could use some large glue dots but hot glue will make sure the bows will stay in place!!

and here it is:
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
Thanks very much for your visit.
