{Clean and Simple} CASology 191 – Washi

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 191 - Washi

Take a look at my card:

Washi (CAS)

I’m so tickled by my card.  I love how the numbers look like they come with the newsprint on them.  Its Washi Tape!! I used Tim Holtz’s Symphony Tissue Tape and Penny Black By The Number Die.

To create this card:

  1. Add 5 strips of washi tape to white cardstock.
  2. Use the die cut to cut the washi cover cardstock.
  3. Adhere the die cut to the cardbase using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and simple!

I was having so much fun, that I had to create another card.

Enjoy Washi (CAS)

This time I used some new watercolor washi tape that I picked up from Michaels. I love this tape.  So super pretty. I have to say that I’m super luck to have this set of washi tape.  I hear everyone saying they can’t find these.  I might have to search them out and pick up another for a giveaway, maybe!!


To create this card:

  1. Add two strips of tape on the bottom of my card base.
  2. Use Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy Die to cut one word out.
  3. Adhere it right above the washi tape with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and easy clean and simple card!!

Be Mine Milk Cartoon

Here is how I created these mini milk cartoons for my daughter’s class:

  1. I used retired Stampin’ Up! Bigz L Mini Milk Carton to cut out 3 milk cartons.
  2. Then I put the cartons together with Tombow Extreme Adhesive.
  3. After that I added some random Love Washi Tape around the boxes.
  4. Then I added some crystal hearts from Michael’s for my bling onto all of the boxes.
  5. I used My Favorite Things Pierced Heat STAX to cut out three small hearts.
  6. I stamped Right At Home Kiss Kiss sentiment onto the hearts.
  7. I adhered the hearts with some Micheal’s clothes pins.

They are filled with candy for her classmates.  I hope they love these too.

That fun!!

4. I added Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and Stacked With Love Washi Tape to the side of my card panel.

5. I attached my card panel with foam adhesive.

Gifts for Workshop Members

Today is my fourth workshop with my coworkers.  We have so much fun.  For one hour we get to unwind and relax.  The type of work that we do at the hospital can be overwhelming at times.  This workshop allows us to regroup and go back to work ready for the rest of the day.

I have four faith members and one new member today.  So I decided to give them a small token of my appreciation. I love pencils and they just realized that.  So, I made them toppers for their mini pencils!!!  I love them!  Now, the idea isn’t totally mines.  I saw fellow demonstrator Angie Juda demonstrate this and I knew I had to make some for myself.  So, thank you Angie!  Enough suspense, take a look.

Pencils with Paper Toppers

I just love pencils and these toppers really gives them an edge.  You should try to make one for yourself.  It is very easy.

1. Cut a piece of DSP to 8-1/2 x 3 and fold in half long ways.

2. Use the Fringe scissors to cut the paper starting at the opening side of the paper. Leave about 1/4″ at the top of the paper uncut.  That should be at the fold.

3. Add sticky strip to the 1/4″ piece that isn’t cut.  That should be at the fold.

4. Take the backing of the stick strip off and align the top of the pencil, the silver top of the pencil to the edge of the paper, and roll the pencil on the sticky strip to form the topper.

5. Then you want to add Washi tape to cover up the edges. Push the excess Washi tape into the hole between the paper and the pencil to create a finished look.

6. To finish it off, use your hands to separate the fringes to create a nice full look.

See nice and easy!  If you need photos to help guide you please let me know.  I will provide that for you.

I hope you enjoy making them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Tune in later for pictures from my workshop later.

Supplies use:

1. Sweet Sorbet DSP which is in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  If you spend, $50 in my online store you can get that set of paper for free.

2. Washi Tape from my local craft store.

3. Staples has the 28 pack of pencils that contain the black pencils as well.  I believe that’s an in store item only.

Washi Tape Box

Hello, I’m here again with another project for you.  I can’t believe it, I’ve been on a roll with my posting.  I’m so happy about that.  I really have been putting some time aside each day dedicated to blogging and that has helped me stay on track.

Today’s box was made with a non-Stampin’ Up! tool, We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Tool.  I couldn’t help myself.  I must say it took me five tries to get it right, but I finally got it.  It turned out beautifully to me.  Take a look.

Holiday Card Workshop Day 1 – Color Me Christmas

Hello everyone!!

I started a new Online Holiday Christmas Card Class and I love it!!  Yesterday was day one and I learned so much stuff.  We learned fun ideas for making the insides of the cards as exciting as the outside.  I took my lead from our instructor Kristina.  Take a look at the card I made for homework:

Washi Outside

Washi Inside

I’m so excited about this card.  It was fun and easy to make.  I was able to use different supplies that I would not have thought of to use together.

Kreative Tip: I use the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape (132155) on the outside and the inside of the card. The washi tape was used to seal the window sheet so the gift card can rest securely in the card.
