Altenew Washi

Happy Monday! I hope you had an Easter weekend filled with family and friends! I love the Easter long-weekend four days to re-charge and re-connect. Also, lots of time set aside in my craft room! 

I picked-up the new Altenew washi tapes last week and let me tell you they have my little heart! We celebrated one of my cousin's birthdays over the weekend and I had to use one of the washi's on it.


The starting point was obviously the washi, and I love that this role has color options. I didn't get further than the blue and pink option, not sure if there are more but such a great idea. I knew I wanted  the tape on the bottom, so I took my card base and placed the washi. 


I then stamped my Altenew Painted flowers (probably my favourite set by them) in some Catherine Pooler inks, It's a Boy and Something Borrowed to match the blue on the tape. I die cut the flowers and took another piece of Neena Solar White 80lbs, sized the frame and used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Border die.


I am thrilled that more companies are releasing great French sentiment die cuts (my entire family is French-speaking) I die cut the Bonne Fete from a StickIt, Fun foam and gold card stock sandwich. I placed my flowers around the sentiment to make sure I liked the placement and then glued everything down. I finished off with some new Studio Katia iridescent sequins and some Nuvo Glitter pen on the flowers.

Thanks so much for taking the time!
