Nicole Nowosad here today to share a project using some fun and sparkly glitter washi tape! I really wanted to use the washi tape and have it resemble something more than just strips, so I decided to add it to the back of a title I had cut from some simple white cardstock.
There are so many fun textures and colors of glitter washi tape, you could do this with different results depending on what washi you choose!
I used several of the different glitter washis for my title work, and it adds just the right amount of sparkle to my page! I was able to add in some other sparkly Queen & Co. flowers and gems to my project to go along with the glitter washi tapes.
I love the little pops of color from the floral embellishments and how easy it is to add some of these fun embellishments to co-ordinate with the paper and the glitter washi
I created a video of how this page came together - check it out!
If you haven't treated yourself to some Queen & Co. Glitter Washi Tape, you're missing out! It is so lovely, lush, and inspiring. The possibilities are endless when it comes to washi tape. My cards today use rolls of glitter washi in abundance, so the sparkle is sure to take center stage.
I created banners from Glitter Washi Tape for my first card, folding each over a strand of Purple Sparkle String. I cut each end in points at different levels and then wrapped my card with the string and tied everything securely in place. All that was left was to add toppings and embellishments, including some darling, Queen & Co. Purple Buttons.
At the bottom of my card I added my stamped sentiment and highlighted it a bit by adding a couple of White Posies. They are so dainty and sweet! To finish my card, I added strips of Pink Skinny Glitter Tape at the top and bottom of my card. _________________________________________
For my second card, I layered strips of Glitter Washi Tape across a block of white cardstock, creating a pattern with them. I then ran the block of cardstock through my die cut machine with a scallop border die, creating strips of washi covered scallops. I layered them across the bottom of my card, offsetting the patterns just a bit.
After adding my stamping and die cut flowers, I finished by embellishing with Yellow Posies. I've always reached for my sequin stash to embellish my cards, but have found a replacement, and that would be the wide selection of Petite Posies from Queen & Co. They come in every color imaginable.
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 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! Happy April 1st!! This month, the design team will be focusing on sharing projects with Glitter Tape and Trendy Tape. It is going to be fun to see how you can incorporate these items onto your scrapbooking pages and fun cards.
Jana Eubank here today to share with you my latest scrapbook page.
I am really in love with the striated look of the Gold Lines Glitter Tape and knew it would be the perfect accent to go with the papers I was using on this next layout.
I used the tape to secure my photo to the page and then tucked a longer piece as a layer behind my papers.
The title die cut I used had a faux, pre-printed piece of tape at the top ... to give it more life and help it stand out a bit, I layered the Gold Lines Glitter Tape behind it, as well.
Hi everyone! Kim Watson here with some of my latest projects to share that focus on the lush Queen & Co glitter washi tapes & regular wash tapes. Let me walk you through my processes.
Not having any 12 x 12 paper, I created my own using x4 6x6 sheets from the NEW Delightful dots & Stripes paper pads. The color blocked effect is so visually striking and the perfect canvas for my page.
Using black & white bakers twine, I adhered a circle shape onto the background page to ground the design. It is from this circle that everything else radiates. Clusters of flowers made up of Iridescent flowers, Pom flowers & die cut flowers using the Flowers shaker kit. Leaves made from collaged washi tape then die cut, Buttons, Pinwheels & Lollies. The result is a pretty & highly dimensional floral bouquet.
Two strips of washi tape on the top right corner, helps with visual balance, and again a sweet, floral cluster adds tons of interest. To fancy up the washi circle, I added a few little items from our new Bling collection: Lollies, Iridescent pearls, Pinwheels, Petite Posies & Rivets. This helps the eye travel around the circle to different parts of the page. ________________________________________
Beginning with the Candle Shaker card kit, I filled the different candles with Metallic Pearlies, then sealed the shakers with Metallic washi tape, even the flames got the same treatment. The black card front creates fabulous drama, offsetting the gorgeous & sophisticated color palette of Black, Magenta, Silver & Gold. Iridescent flowers, Pom flowers, Lollies, Petite Posies & Wallflowers add glam & twinkle. _______________________________________
This card is a real event...fitting for a 21st birthday, being a big milestone birthday. I started with the white card base, adding a black panel & magenta Delightful dot patterned paper panel. I then created the 3 tiered cake accent. Remember by collaging strips of washi tape onto a piece of cardstock, you make it more manageable when creating an accent like this one. Once layered & adhered together, I made a cute little bow tie from black & white dotted washi tape. Pinwheels add the necessary bling to the top tier.
Using jewellers wire, I made 4 wobblers to 'jump out' of the cake...an Iridescent flower, punched stars glammed up with Sequins & Pearlies and a gold glitter number 21 really make a 'wow!' statement. Bunched up tissue paper into the top of the cake was the perfect way to hide any workings within the cake :)
I LOVED this months assignments, & I hope you do too? Sigh...so many Queen & Co pretties and only so many hours in a day to craft! Aren't you just loving the new lines? Well if you are & want to purchase some for yourself, the items I used are listed & linked below. _________________________________________
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!
Hi Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca Keppel here with 4 new Foam Front cards! For this first card, I used the Sunburst Foam Front Kit and Die, but I also borrowed the Spring Shape Shakers Cloud die to add the sentiment.
I used some Iridescent Dots around the sun shape to add extra dimension.
For the third card, I used the Chevron Foam Front and grabbed the matching Die to die cut some gold foil cardstock in the chevron pattern.
I was really excited to try out the Neutral Pearlies Toppings and thought they would show up nicely on a black background. The metallics add a very elegant touch and would be perfect for wedding or engagement cards!
