Quick Card Weekend: Washi Tape Background with Big Impact

Quick Card Weekend is a monthly post sharing little tips & tricks and musings about pulling together “Pops of Paper” with limited time.

Hi Friends!! Welcome to the weekend! Today, I’m sharing a quick CAS card using Doodlebug Rainbow Stripe Washi Tape as my background and the big bold sentiment from Essential by Ellen Thank You For Being a Friend stamp set. I absolutely love this block lettering sentiment from Brandi…I find myself humming the Golden Girls theme song each time I work with it 🙂

Quick Card Details & Creative Process

Time: 10 Minutes & 3 Steps

Timesaver: Washi Tape and Bold Sentiment Stamp

  1. Place several diagonal rows of washi tape to your card panel. Meet each row at the seam and try not to overlap the washi tape for a smooth background paper look.

Tip: Just fold your washi ends over your card panel and tear the washi from the roll. No need to pull out your scissors.

  1. Stamp your bold sentiment with black ink on a white card panel and die cut the sentiment using the Essentials Circles Designer Dies. This design die is AMAZING because its a ”two-for” it gets you both a circle sentiment and a perfectly sized thin circle border. To highlight the sentiment with a little extra pop, I colored the thin border with a Copic marker (RV55) that matches the Washi tape.
  2. Adhere your bold circle sentiment to your washi background and you’re all set! Easy Peasy!

So there we are friends, a quick & easy card for those times when you need a little something and you’re short on time. Hope you enjoy and Big Paper Hugs!

Camp Wanna Stamp Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle Collaboration Blog Hop

Hi Friends! Welcome to Pops Of Paper and thank you for joining me on the third Essentials by Ellen Summer of Stamping Release Blog Hop. We’re sharing inspiration with the most adorable EH Exclusive Avery Elle Stamp set: Peek-a-Boo Camp Wanna Stamp.

If you are stopping by while on the Summer Of Stamping Blog Hop, you should be arriving from the Ellen Hutson blog where you can find the entire hop list. Blog Hop Giveaway Details and the entire hop list are at the end of this post. Next on the hop is the awesome Amy Kolling from the Avery Elle Design Team!

Product Release Info: Camp Wanna Stamp is sold as a Stamp/Coordinating Die combo or stamp-only (dies are not sold separately).

For my projects today, I have two cards combining all cuties canoeing from Camp Wanna Stamp and the EBE Constellation Background Designer Die. I also snuck in a little paper piecing on the bear’s red bandanna using the plaid stamp from the EBE Plaid Maker Stamp Set. All of my images were stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with an assortment of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Another Year of Adventure

It’s so much fun to build little scenes with these critters. For my background, I ink-blended the Constellation Background with Blue Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed with Sparkle Shimmer Spray. For a extra pop, I added star embellishments from my stash and little white gel star polka dots. Everything was adhered inside a rectangle frame using foam tape and liquid glue. 

Written in the Stars

With the sweet sentiment, I thought it would be cute to have the bear catching a couple stars alongside his bunny friend. I created the fishing line using silver metallic thread and used glue dots to attach the double-sided stars to the fishing line. 

So there we are friends, two adventure under the stars cards using the ADORABLE Peek-a-Boo Camp Wanna Stamp Collaboration Stamp Set. I hope you enjoyed my projects today, and it inspires you to stretch your stamps and metal dies in fun new ways. Have a fun time on the hop and enjoy all the inspiration from all the talented designers. Big Paper Hugs! 🤗
