Let's get a closer look at one of the class cards we'll be creating at "Last Thursdays!"

Amazing painted petals washi - two cool   

This card design was a last-minute addition to my "Last Thursdays" class and I think it may be my favorite from the class!  I'm loving how quickly and easily the striped washi tape pattern comes together for a super-fun background! 

And, I've been trying to use some of my favorite 2013-2015 In Colors before they are retired on June 2, 2015.  Can you believe it?  I don't know what I'm gonna do without my Coastal Cabana!!!! 

Amazing painted petals washi - cantaloupe

CASEd from Lisa Martz at Get Your Stamp On.

Background Basics—The traditional-size card base is Pistachio Pudding card stock, layered with a 4" x 5-1/4" Basic Black mat.

Sweet Washi Stripes—For the background, I started with a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock and added 5 strips of "sweet" washi tape from the Sweet Dreams Washi Tape in the Occasions Catalog and the Sweet Sadie Washi Tape from the Annual Catalog.

Starting from the top:

  • Basic Gray pluses from Sweet Dreams Washi Tape
  • Crisp Cantaloupe stripes from Sweet Sadie Washi Tape
  • Pistachio Pudding hearts from Sweet Sadie Washi Tape
  • Crisp Cantaloupe dots from Sweet Dreams Washi Tape
  • Basic Black scallops from Sweet Sadie Washi Tape

The tape is wrapped around the edge to the back of the card for a nice, finished look.

Painted Petals Pretties—My focal point is stamped with the two-step Painted Petals set onto a piece of 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" Whisper White.  I stamped the leaves first in Pistachio Pudding, then added the Crisp Cantaloupe blooms. TIP: I recommend getting the see-thru photopolymer style Painted Petals stamps for perfect positioning.

The Painted Petals sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink right over the top.  I framed the layer onto a 2-3/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Basic Black and popped it up on the card front with Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches—For a little shine, I added a few silver sequins from the retired Frosted Sequins from the Holiday Catalog with a few dabs of Multipurpose Glue. 

Amazing painted petals washi - coastal   

Two Cool—I had so much fun with the above CASEd card that I decided to try it in another color combination.

Wonder Washi Options—Stampin' Up! has lots of washi tape colors and patterns to choose from, so you really could create a variety of cool washi tape striped backgrounds! Here are the 4 washi tape packs I used for my second version:

  • Basic Gray "pluses" from Sweet Dreams Washi Tape
  • Pool Party stripes from Beach House Washi Tape
  • Pistachio Pudding hearts from Sweet Sadie Washi Tape
  • Coastal Cabana arrows from Retro Fresh Washi Tape
  • Basic Black scallops from Sweet Sadie Washi Tape

Pretty Petals Part 2—The leaves are again stamped in Pistachio Pudding ink and the flowers are stamped in Coastal Cabana.  The sentiment is another from the Painted Petals set.

Which color combination do you like best?
