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!
Good morning Q&Co. fans! Nicole Nowosad here today to share a project with you using a whole lot of Queen & Company washi tape! There are so many patterns and colors to choose from, it really is difficult to narrow it down to just a few choices, so why not go crazy and use a whole bunch instead of patterned paper?
To create this page, I simply chose a rainbow of patterned washi tape and went to work. I simply tore off different patterned of washi tape to create a rainbow of color across both sides of my page.
Once I had added my strips up either side of my page, I added some simple stitching and then some coordinating embellishments to match the colors of the washi tape. I love the little bits of sparkle that the embellishments add to the project!
Hello all! I'm excited to join you today with a couple of cards created using the fabulous Queen & Company Washi Tape.
For my first card, I created a background using an assortment of Polka Dot Washi Tape, adhering them across a block of white cardstock. I then used the heart die from the Heart Throb kit to cut a window from the center of my background. Next I attached strips of Sparkle String across the centers of each washi strip, tying a bow on the right. I added a couple of coorindating Wallflowers to embellish here and there.
To finish my card, I attached a foam heart from the Heart Throb Kit over the center of my heart window and embellished with a stamped sentiment and White Rivets to finish. _________________________________________
I used the Heart Throb Kit again on my second card, creating a Washi Tape background inside my Heart Shaker. I used an assortment of Washi Tape including Polka Dot, Stripe, and Floral. I attached a stamped tag to the front of my card using Twine and a sweet Pink Button.
Across the bottom of my card I used a word die from the Heart Throb Kit and Music Note Washi Tape to create a bold sentiment. I simply layered strips of the washi tape on a block of white cardstock and then used the metal die to cut my word.
I finished by embellishing with tiny, Pink Sparklers. Such a fun card to make and washi tape makes creating so unique and colorful!
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).
Hello there! Spring has sprung around here and it has inspired me to create! Queen & Company has so many different products available to bring out Spring in my craft room, such as the darling, Butterfly Foam Front Shaker Kit...it has become my favorite!
Then I added my stamped sentiment (also from the Smooches stamp set) and Pink Sparkle String, wrapped around my card twice. This fun string ties the most perfect bows :).
Lastly I added my foam hearts, grouping them together to resemble flowers. They're embellished using Pink Button Bouquet II and Pink Twinkle Drops. _______________________________________
The Candles Foam Front Kit makes such adorable birthday cards. I used assorted Trendy Tape on the bottom layer of my card to create candles that would show through each opening.
I then added Sequin Sprinkles in Yellow and Orange to mimic the flame of each candle. Next, I added the acetate layer and started embellishing my card front.
I used the Foam Front Candles Die and paper from the Delightful Dots paper pad to create the top layer of my card. Clear Sunflowers were used at the tip of each candle, and then I added Blue Sparkle String around my card, wrapping it like a present. All that was left was to add my stamped sentiment and die cut. ________________________________________
Hi everyone! Nicole Nowosad here today to share a few layouts created with the Foam Front Shaker sets. This layout started out using the Pop Ups Rectangle set along with a nice mixture of blue papers and fillings inside the rectangles.
I even diecut a few small glasses from black cardstock and snuck those inside the pop up inside the larger Pop Ups Rectangle shaker that I used above the title on the page and then added some Blue Pinwheels and white Opals to some of the rectangles on the page.
Next, I created another masculine page using lots of lovely green papers and embellishments available now. I started with various papers from some 6x6 paper pads and cut them into pie chart shapes on my digital die cut machine.
Once I had arranged the pie charts onto my page, I added several fun embellishments to the circles. The Button Bouquet II in green as well as Rivets in both green and black.
I really love how all the pretty flowers fill in that circle on the page and add a lot of fun texture!
My last project uses lots of papers from various 6x6 paper pads and the circles from the Balloons Shaker Kit. I punched a whole lot of circles in a rainbow of colors and added them in a banner shape across my page.
Hello there Sunshines! I have a couple of fun cards to share with you today using the delightful, new Sunburst Card Kit. I LOVE these card kits and how easily unique and creative cards come together quickly.
I then sealed my toppings in using the acetate layer found in the kit and using paper from the Flirty Florals and my Sunburst die to create my card front. It's embellished using Iridescent Pearls in Yellow, yellow Twine, White Pom Flowers, and my stamped sentiment from the Summer Lovin stamp set from Paper Smooches.
Anyone else ready for some beach time and summer sun? The sweet Summer Shaker Kit from Queen & Company certainly has me in the mood!
My foam sunglasses and beach ball are covered in paper, die cut using the Flirty Florals Paper Pad. I've also used a bright yellow polka dot print around the outer edges of my card from this same pad. My shaker shapes are filled with Sequin Sprinkles in yellows and blues and a few Diamonds from the Pastel collection. I used tiny Pink Sparklers to embellish my sunglasses and a yellow button from the Button Bouquet II collection to dress up my beach ball.
I added a bit of yellow twine down the side of my card and finished with stamps from the Summer Lovin stamp set from Paper Smooches.
For my next card, I used the cute kite from the Summer Shaker Kit and filled it with a mixture of Sequin Sprinkles in yellows and blues. They look so pretty mixed together and remind me instantly of summer.
The Foam Front Shaker Kit - Lines is so much fun! I fell in love with it immediately and think you will too. I filled my slots with cute, tiny Donuts in colors that remind me of ombre hues of red. I then assembled my shaker card front and covered it will paper from the Pretty Presents Paper Pad, die cut using the Lines die .
On my next card, I used the foam pieces I popped out from my first card and used those along with paper cut from the Foam Front Lines die to create a little tic-tac-toe board on my card. I used paper from the Pretty Presents Paper Pad once again.
Before adhering my lines on my card I stamped my x's using Paper Smooches Smooches stamp set and stamped my sentiment across the bottom.
I then added Clear Donuts to act as my o's. Lastly I added a bow tied with Orange Sparkle String...because this stuff is my favorite and it always looks so cute :).
Hi everyone! Jen Chapin here, and today I am sharing a couple colorful layout with you. My first, is a pink layout! I had fun creating this layout to document a photo of my daughter at three years old. The colors coordinated perfectly with her outfit.
I started this layout with a 12x12 sheet of white cardstock that I had ran through my die cut machine and cut some wonky circles. I then backed it with a piece of magenta cardstock, and used some of the Queen & Company 6x6 paper pads to peek through the negative spaces.
I was excited to use some of the butterfly pop-ups on this layout, along with a few of the pink toppings. I used black to outline the butterflies in order to provide more contrast to the layout.
I also used a black title to pop against the pink and white, and filled in a few of the negative spaces with pink watercolor. Journaling was typed with one of my vintage typewriters. I had such a great time creating this monochromatic layout.
Here is my next color-coded layout in red. This palette was perfect to document a sweet 4th of July photo from this past year.
I started out with a white die cut and a piece of 8.5x11 white cardstock. I used some of my circle punches to punch out patterned paper from some of the Queen & Company 6x6 paper pads. The scaled down patterns are perfect for use in small die cuts like this.
I also used some red watercolor to fill in a few of the circles for added color. I like the softness and variety that adds. I also embellished with a few embelliushments from Queen and Company, along with some die cut flowers from the Flower Set.
I decided on a black title to pop against the white background and I think it turned out really well! A date stamp and some journaling finished off my page.
Next up is PURPLE!!! Is it just me, or is purple under-represented in scrapbooking products? I love purple and am so excited that Queen and Company has so many options.
Purple always reminds me of Halloween, maybe because it goes so well with orange and black. For this page, I used the square dies and foam pop ups to create some custom embellishments for my layout.
I backed the foam squares with patterned papers from the Simple Stripes and Delightful Dots paper pads. I then added some assorted purple toppings to complete the look.
To mat my photo, I used a bit of orange polka dot washi tape for some added contrast. I love the unique look.
I finished off the page with a black foam title and some journaling. I also added a few black foam hearts and stars over the embellished square windows for added interest. This layout is a fun and simple way to create a grid-inspired page.
Last but certainly not least, I am sharing a rainbow-inspired layout with you using some great Queen & Company washi tapes.
I started my layout with a piece of gray 12x12 cardstock. Using a ruler to ensure my first piece of tape was straight, I started with red and created a mat of tapes in ROYGBIV order.
After my tape was adhered, I placed my photo using some foam adhesive for a bit of added dimension. I then added Queen & Company embellishments, making sure to coordinate colors with what color of washi they were on.
I decided to go with a white title for this page, to make it pop against the bright colors. I also added my favorite type of journaling - strip journaling - below the title.
I also added a heart shaker from the Heart Throb kit next to the title, which was the perfect finishing touch!
