Addicted to washi tape

Hi everyone! Yep, I definitely think I'm addicted to washi tape!  I am determined NOT to let my tape sit untouched (like I do with so many of my embellishments), so I have a couple more cards to share today.

I was inspired to make a little set of cards that coordinates with my card from last week. I used the same stamp set from JustRite, Grand Sentiments. I used My Mind's Eye washi tape along with some MME enamel dots and Spellbinders Jewels Flowers and Flourishes die set.  P.S. bonus points for me using the enamel dots, those babies have sat on my desk untouched for a month!

 These cards are also for the Washi Tape Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  The challenge is to use your tape in an interesting way.  I used tape on my card in strips, but I also used it to make coordinating die cuts. This is super easy to do, here is a picture showing how I did it.  You will notice that on most tapes the pattern is designed to match up with itself, allowing you to cover a bigger area seamlessly.
Notice how I tore a small piece of tape to keep the die in place on the paper (upper right corner)?  I can't tell you how many times I had to start over because the die slipped.  It's so easy and convenient to tear off an extra piece, it's worth the extra 2 seconds.  Trust me!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with a couple close up pictures.
