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.
Good morning! Mary-Ann Maldonado with a fun layout for you today using the colorful Polka Dot Washi!! After I begged, then received this fun candy machine, there was no other way to document it with anything other than circles right? I layered my papers first and then started cutting circles out of colorful washi.
I applied strips of washi on scrap pieces of white cardstock. I ran it through my cutting machine with circle dies to the clean crisp cuts. I added a few buttons, pinwheels and rivets to mimic more gum balls. For the left edge, I used the ruler washi, and folded over the number part to get only the lines on the front.
I layered my title directly on top of one of the circles as it curves around another. For the dimension behind the blue circle, I used the negative (left over piece) from the Summer Shaker Kit. I applied the washi circle to the top.
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! :)
Hello! Laurie Schmidlin with you today. I’ve got a couple of bright and colorful cards to share with you today featuring some of Queen & Co’s gorgeous Washi Tape!
I absolutely LOVE rainbow colors! I would have it every where in my house if I could get away with it! One of my favorite things about Queen & Co is how many of their products come in my beloved rainbow colors! Pure heaven I tell ya!
For my first card, I covered a piece of white cardstock with six of the Washi Tapes in alternating patterns. I mounted some white cardstock on top of it (cut at an angle) with dimensional foam. I embellished with coordinating buttons and a Purple Glitter Flower.
For my next card, I decided to use Washi Tape to create a fun and bold background. I mixed up the patterns but kept the color scheme to Blue, Yellow, and Black. I added a small strip of yellow patterned paper (from the Perfect Presents paper pad) to the right of the Washi Tape layer.
I die cut the number 16 and then added the die cut Celebrate sentiment below that. I embellished with some black and white twine and a Yellow Pom Flower.
Hello Friends! It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with a heritage layout using old family photos along with some of my favorite glitter washi tape. The photos are from 1949, just after my dad enlisted in the Navy. For my embellishments I decided to go with a red, white and blue theme, along with stars, stripes, and that great anchor.
To start my layout, I cut 4 triangle shapes from white cardstock, then layered on the Blue Stripe Glitter Washi Tape to completely cover the triangles. I added the triangles to my layout, along with 4 more triangle shapes I cut from coordinating patterned paper. Next I adhered some of the Red Star Buttons from the Button Boquet II set. I like the addition of the stars!
I cut an anchor shape using my die cutting machine, then covered it with rows of Silver Skinny Glitter Tape. After I had the anchor completely covered with the glitter tape, I used my scissors to carefully cut around the anchor. I used a small circle hole punch at the top of the anchor so I could then add the strand of Red and White Twine from the Twine Assortment Pack. I placed the anchor on the left side of my layout, then added tiny drops of glue to adhere the twine around my layout
I love the look of the shiny glitter anchor, the perfect accent to go with these old photos.
Thank you for stopping by the Queen and Company blog today! Mary Ann
Hi there, Amy Sheffer joining you today with a colorful pair of birthday cards featuring some of my very favorite things: white card stock, rainbow colors, black and white twine, and polka dots!
My first card is a surprise birthday party invitation. I started by die-cutting a curved edge on the top part of the card base. I knew I wanted to create something with washi tape for the inside of the card, and having those fun colors peek out from the inside was the perfect way to add some color to the front.
Knowing that I would be coating my word die-cut with Bitty Beads, I first covered a scrap of white card stock with 1/2" Red Line Tape. I adhered three rows next to each other in order to cover an area large enough for my word die-cut. Next, I placed the word die onto the red line tape and ran it through my die-cutting machine. I removed the die, leaving the word die-cut inlaid into the surrounding card stock, then removed the tape just from the word die-cut and sprinkled on some Bitty Beads, pressing to make sure the beads adhered firmly. (Leaving the die-cut inlaid into the larger piece of card stock helped give me something to hold onto while I was adding the Bitty Beads.) Once the Bitty Beads were adhered, I separated the die-cut from the negative and adhered the die-cut to the card front using liquid glue.
I added a simple ink-blended balloon with some black and white twine from the Twine Assortment.
On the inside of the card, I adhered short strips of polka dot washi tape in rainbow order. I used a black marker to draw on the wicks, then adhered Clear Twinkle Drops for the flames.
The top half of the inside still has plenty of room for invitation details.
My second card is also a birthday invitation card and features the same rainbow assortment of Polka Washi Tapes.
This time, I started with my colorful washi tape sentiment. I adhered strips of washi tape to white card stock side-by-side, covering an area approximately the size of my sentiment die, then die-cut the sentiment. I love those cheery colors and the polka dots!
I adhered the sentiment to a birthday-themed cover plate die-cut, along with balloon die-cuts, Lollies, and Rivets in a rainbow of colors. So festive!
Along the bottom, to help ground the sentiment, I added a narrow strip of Silver Skinny Glitter Tape and some black and white twine from the Twine Assortment.
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! Jen Chapin here today, and I am sharing a scrapbook page with you using some of the awesome Queen & Company washi tape. My daughter is so into makeup lately, and while we were at the store the other day I snapped this picture of her picking some out. I decided to change it to black and white for this page.
I started out with a piece of white cardstock that was a little smaller than 8.5x11. Using pink, purple and blue washi tape, I created a mat in the middle of the page. I ripped some of the washi before putting it down for a bit of visual interest.
Next, I used some watercolors to jazz up the white a bit. After I applied it, I wiped the washi clean and layered on my photo. I used a few of the foam hearts from the Heart Throb kit to embellish the layout, as well as some of the pink heart sequins.
To finish up the layout, I added a title and some journaling. That's it! I hope you will try this type of washi technique on one of your scrapbooking pages! It's a great way to add color and pattern to your project.
On my first card I used Gold Dot, Yellow Skinny and Green Lines Glitter Tape to die-cut partial shapes. I first applied strips of each tape to white card stock to form color blocks of each, carefully aligning the edges so that no white would show in between strips. It was quite easy to align the edges and even match the partial circles on the Gold Dot tape.
Once the tape was applied to the white card stock, I simply die-cut the shapes as usual. I slipped the pineapple pieces into the black outline and attached the sun to the top. (Stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.)
I used the same technique as noted above. I applied several strips of Silver Skinny tape to white card stock then used a die to cut the tiny stars. I used one of the smaller hearts from Hearts Foam Front die to cut the heart dangling from the branch.
I also used the glitter tape in a more traditional fashion, applying a strip down the side, partially hidden by the Heart Throb patterned paper, giving the appearance of a thinner strip of sparkle. (Stars, branch and owl dies by Taylored Expressions, available April 6th. Sentiment die by Paper Smooches.)
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!
