Hey Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca here! If you like washi tape then you will LOVE Queen and Co. Washi Tapes. They seem thicker than most washi, but act the same way in that you can tear them, cut them, die cut them and more!
For this card, I used the Candles Foam Front Coordinating Die to cut out candles and flames. I did this by laying strips of wash on cardstock and then running it through my die cut machine. I also created the diagonal patterned paper matte by laying down washi strips next to each other.
For the second card, I took advantage of the fact that you can tear washi. I laid a rainbow of strips of torn edge washi on my card panel. Next, I created a shaped shaker using the Heart Throb kit heart foam shape and die. I covered some cardstock with purple washi and ran it through my die cut machine to use as the base and frame for the shaker.
Hi there crafty friends! Michele Boyer here today with a couple cards using Queen & Company’s new washi tape. There are so many pretty colors and patterns, I had a hard time choosing which to use. For both of my cards, I used my favorite butterfly die from the new Butterfly Shaker Kit.
First, I laid strips of Orange, Green and Blue Floral washi tape onto white card stock to create a block of each color. I die-cut the butterflies then adhered the green and orange onto a block of yellow Stripes paper. I was careful not to adhere the lower right green and upper right orange wings as I knew I wanted to nip those parts away when I adhered the butterfly foam shape.
Once the foam shape was adhered and the green and orange overlap was removed, I sprinkled some Posies and Pops inside. I covered the toppings with the pre-cut transparency then adhered the blue butterfly with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue. After stamping the sentiment (from Paper Smooches), I adhered a few more Posies around the butterflies.
On my second card, I created a patterned background using Purple Polka and Green Polka washi tape. I used grid paper beneath the card stock to ensure straight placement and even spacing. Once the tape was adhered, I laid the Circle Foam Front Die over top with the butterfly in the circular opening. I taped the dies in place then die-cut the panel.
After determining the amount of space needed for my sentiment (by Paper Smooches), I trimmed away a bit of the taped panel along the top and bottom. To hide the bottom cut edge, I tied pretty Purple Sparkle String. Once the partial panel was adhered to my card base, I placed the butterfly, carefully aligning the dotted stripes, adhered and stamped my sentiment and added two Purple Iridescent Flowers.
Hi everyone! Kim Watson here with my latest Queen & Co projects to share with you. This month the focus is the lush Queen & Co glitter washi tapes & regular washi tapes. I can't wait to show you what I came up with.
Having my Father's 70th birthday this week, was cause enough for me to create something especially geared towards a guy. Knowing he wouldn't appreciate pastel colors, I selected the blue, gold & silver glitter tapes to decorate my Star Shaker card kit. Laying the tapes diagonally across the card really makes the most of the stripe effect, I especially love how by leaving gaps at regular intervals between the tapes, allowed me to stamp 'CONGRATULATIONS' sentiments, adding to the interest & texture to the card.
Filling the stars was tricky initially because I just couldn't settle on what color would look best to fill the shakers. I decided on the best of both & used both gold and silver, the effect is masculine with a hint of sparkle.
Lastly I die cut a title in black cardstock & stamped a happy Birthday sentiment (from Fiskars USA). The extra contrast is what exactly what I needed to finish off the card. ________________________________________
Beginning with the Windows Shaker card kit, I filled the different quadrants with Metallic Pearlies & Sequins, then using watercolor paper, created a pretty gradient color wash making sure to match the topping colors in each window.
The black cardstock surround with the white windows are the perfect canvas to show off my layered, black, patterned washi tape & sentiment tabs. A stamped flower (from Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine) painted in vibrant colors, is the perfect embellishment for such a striking card! __________________________________________
This card is a real event...fitting for my brother's up & coming wedding. I started with the white card base, adding a gorgeous floral cut file for some fancy, understated texture. I then collaged strips of glitter washi tape onto a piece of cardstock, making it more manageable to punch out an entire family of gorgeous shimmery butterflies.
Arranged around the card with lilac, Iridescent Pearls & an appropriate sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches, the effect is breathtakingly glamorous!! ___________________________________________
Beginning with the Candles Shaker card kit, I filled the candles quadrants with pastel Metallic Pearlies, then using striped washi tape, covered the candles before adhering the card onto the back.The flames were filled with tiny diamonds & covered with silver metallic washi tape making them all sparkly & fun!
The front was decorated with Iridescent flowers & Pom flowers and other colorful bling bits. A sweet sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches in the form of a little flag creates a great focal point but it is the turquoise bakers twine adhered around the edge of the card that gives the card the finishing touch.
Another month of gorgeous assignments, & I really hope you like them as much as I do. Once again Queen & Co pretties make my job of designing so easy! Be sure to use the linked list below, to grab some of the supplies I used yourself.
Hi Queen & Co friends! Today I’m sharing a couple cards featuring the Foam Front cards and glitter washi. First up is a card using the Solo Butterfly Card Kit.
I used silver glitter washi for the butterfly background. To do this, I simply placed the butterfly cutout over my card base, then I traced around the inside of the butterfly with a pencil. I used the pencil line as a guide for laying down strips of washi.
I filled the butterfly with Donuts, Pops and Diamond toppings. To compliment the silver glitter washi, I outlined the butterfly with silver glitter glue. I finished off the card with some handmade roses die-cut from the new 6” x 6” paper pads.
Hey there! It's Laurie Willison here with a couple of cards to share today. If you are like me, you have a whole drawer full of gorgeous washi! I am slightly addicted and it is just so much fun to use. Queen and Company has a bunch of the most beautiful glitter washi's and I love using it on cards.
For this first card, I used it to make the sentiment pop!
I lined the Pink Striped Glitter Tape on cardstock and then took this Simon Says die and die cut the sentiment, leaving a super fun, glittery sentiment. I layered it up on the gray card base with vellum, to create a fun look. I added some white Queen and Company Iridescent Pearls to finish of the card front. __________________________________________
I die cut the foam front die twice to give a little dimension after lining up the Blue Dot Glitter Tape on the card base. To finish off this CAS card, I die cut the "hello" 5 times and stacked them up for a 3D sentiment. Super simple!
That is all for today! Hope you like my CAS creations! Stay tuned for more glitter washi creations....have a great day! :)
Hi Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca Keppel here with a few new Foam Front Shaker Cards featuring the new Glitter Washi.
For my first card, I covered a piece of cardstock with 2 types of Glitter Washi. I made sure that the cardstock was a little larger than 4.25 x 5.5 so that I could use the coordinating Sunburst die to cut the Glitter Washi covered cardstock. I think the metallic colors could make a good masculine card!
I added some black and white twine on the sentiment strip and tied it with a knot rather than a bow to further the masculine look.
For my final card, I changed it up and used the Glitter Washi behind the Foam Front. Once again, I covered cardstock with Glitter Washi and then used the Oval Foam Front on top.
The polka dot Glitter Washi behind the Oval Foam Front reminded me of an Easter egg so I went with an easter theme.
I love using the Glitter on cards! I was surprised that even with all the glittery shine, the Washi still tears easily and it die cut easily too! I do recommend using a Precision Plate for die cutting to ensure you get a nice clean cut.
Hi everyone! Nicole Nowosad here today to share with you a layout I created using the Butterfly Foam Front and some fun new toppings too!
I started this page with the idea of the rainbow striped paper from the 6x6 Flirty Florals paper pad and mimic it in the Foam Front Butterfly. I added some fun toppings in a rainbow of colors, starting at the top of the butterfly foam front and then worked my way through the rainbow. Once it was all full with lovely toppings, I diecut the front design with the Designer Die and added it to the front to cover the adhesive area.
From there, it was just time to finish off the layout! I diecut several flowers using the Pop Up Dies Flower, and added those to the bottom of the page, along with several of the new embellishments and a handcut title.
I hope you are inspired to use one of the Foam Front designs on your next scrapbook layout!
For my next layout, I am going to share a fun project using the Love Foam Front! I just love the fun text appeal of this design and it works great on a scrapbook page.
I started this page by adding the foam front to the base of my layout and then started filling it with some fun toppings - microbeads, diamonds, sprinkles, donuts and matte beads too! These foam fronts can hold a lot of little bits of goodness !
I simply covered up the front of the Foam Front with some red patterned paper and then went on to finish my page.
I cut several squares from patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pads and added a design to the bottom half of my page. Since the foam front was on a slight angle when I placed it down, I did the same with the squares of paper on the bottom of the page.
I added a simple title, using the Foam Front as part of it and added a few letter stickers in a contrasting color to make it pop against all that red! I love how the photo stands out, even though the large foam front is all full of fun bits!
Hi everyone! Stacy Cohen here with some ‘fun-with-foam’ projects to share. I love that Queen & Co’s products are versatile enough to be used on a variety of crafty projects!
I used products from the new Butterflies Shaker Kit (which includes both foam shaker shapes and coordinating dies) to create a layout and a card. I’m quite enamored with colorful rainbow pages, so when I saw the new Delightful Dots and Simple Stripes Mat Stacks I got a little giddy. For the layout I cut strips of the rainbow colored papers and used a scalloped edger punch along the edge of each. I then adhered the strips side-by-side to a piece of cardstock, using 3D foam adhesive to pop up the scallops. I cut a curve along the strips and separated the two pieces, then adhered them to a 12” x 12” sheet of cardstock leaving about a half inch space between the two sections. I filled the space with coordinating colors of Queen & Co. bling and toppings.
I filled a butterfly shaker with some of the fabulous new toppings. I also added a few die-cut butterflies as page accents.
Here’s the card I made with the butterfly shaker kit. I used strips of the same fabulous rainbow papers.
Normally I like to leave room in the shakers so that the toppings will actually shake and move around. But this time I decided to fill the butterfly shaker to capacity so that the toppings would stay put. I layered the colors of the toppings within each butterfly so that they coordinate with the rainbow paper strips behind them.
Next up I have a layout and a card I made with the Birthday Shaker Kit. I went with a grid design for the layout, but I decided to change it up a bit and put the grid at an angle.
I used the party hat and cake slice shakers and filled them up with festive toppings. For the candles, I used the foam inserts from the candle shaker pieces (you’ll see I used the candle shakers themselves for the card at the end of this post).
Good Morning! Mary-Ann Maldonado here today to share two fun Foam Front Layouts with you. For my first layout, I used the Waves Foam Front Shaker Set. Each set of Foam in the Queen Shop, can be paired with an appropriate die. This helps cover the foam front perfectly with fun papers. I used watercolor paper for this layout. I started by dropping paint droplets from high above to get the splatter of water look. Be careful or your clothes will be covered! I know! I also used watercolor for the front of the foam die. I dropped paint on a silicone mat and smeared my paper through it for mixed colors and also for the left over waves too. Then I carefully dropped splatters on those as well. Each layer of my shaker was filled with different toppings to create an ombre effect. Closer to the surface of the ocean is lighter, right?
I then randomly placed Iridescent Pearls, Opals, Pinwheels and Rivets.
As you can see, the Foam Front Sets can be used with any of your favorite papers, embellishments and topics out there! Have fun and go crazy!
For my second layout, I wanted to show you how fun the Foam Fronts are with lots of patterned papers. That they can really be used with just about anything you want.
I topped the Solo Heart Foam Front with a delicate patterned paper and filled it with Pearlies, Fun Fimos, Pops and even a couple Lollies. I used the heart die from the Heart Throb kit to cut a black out line of the heart to help it stand out a bit more.
Leaving the patterned paper behind the shaker filled with various Toppings is kinda fun!
This first card, I kept super clean and simple. I added the foam front to the card base, added in some clear diamonds from the Diamonds Primary Toppings. I added 2 hearts that I cut from the Hearts Foam Front Die after adding in a little ink blending. I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, Handmade From Me, stamp set.
This second card I did a little blending with blue ink on the Balloon Die cut front and the balloons themselves. The toppings inside the balloons are called Pops. I added everything to the card front and the topped it off with more heart die cuts and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Easter Greetings.
This last card was made using the Hearts Foam Front kit. I did some ink blending on the card front die cut. I filled each heart on the shaker card with sliver pearls from the Neutral Pearlies toppings set. I added the "thanks" sentiment using a Simon Says Thanks Die.
If you haven't had a chance to try one of these amazing Foam Front Shaker cards, go grab one. They are so much fun!
