Washi Tape Idea
I was moving several of the boxes to the garage for temporary storage while I sort through them. Luckily, the cleaning lady helped me. We had a common mission . . . free up the floor space in the living room and hallway so she could clean the floor! As we finished up, my back gave out. So, my progress was stifled while I iced and laid on the sofa with sweet Hannah.
There was an article in a British stamping magazine that really caught my eye. Washi tape was partially applied to a piece of cardstock that you would use for the top panel. The tape strips were trimmed with scissors. A background design was stamped onto the panel with VersaMark and colored embossing powder was used. I didn't have any appropriate colored embossing powder, so I used my "go to" gold powder. Then I trimmed the piece to fit the card design. It's fairly easy and goes together quickly.
Hero Arts Stamp: Leafy Vines
Ranger Queen's Gold embossing powder
Queen & Co. Epoxy Dots in orange
Top Panel & Base Card: Conqueror 118# Cover Card Stock in Diamond White
Matting: coral color (Memory Box A2 card); gold card stock
I think you'll want to try this out. With all of the colors, patterns and designs available in washi tapes, you could make so many variations and "mass" produce a beautiful card design.
On the Magenta blog, Bianca van Noort has made a beautiful card design featuring several of the fabulous stamps from Magenta.
