A Couple of Diecut Washi Tape Cards with Hearts

How are you?!  I thought I would share a couple bright cards I made using diecut washi tape used on a transparency for a fun look!

For this first one I merged a circle and a rectangle on my Silhouette to create the hot pink curved shape and then diecut a circle in the center to create a window.  I also cut my blue card base on the Silhouette so I could cut a circle which would be perfect lined up.  I then sandwiched a piece of clear transparency in between the layers for my window. 

To create my heart I lined up rows of colorful washi tape on a sheet of parchment paper and then ran them through my diecutting machine with a Papertrey Ink Heart die.  The parchment paper allows the washi tape to easily pull off without falling apart.  I then mimicked the look by lining up the same washi tape on a piece of white cardstock to slip under my pink paper. 

For this one I used the same technique, but went for a full clear card front.  I used a variety of washi tapes from several manufacturers including Doodlebug (blue & pink dots), My Mind's Eye (green chevron, blue chevron, pink lace), Queen & Co (yellow stripes) and KI Memories (clouds).

The sentiment for both these cards was taken from Technique Tuesdays "Incredible" by Ali Edwards stamp set.  I think this is hands down one of my favorites of hers.  Such a great versatile set!  :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  I will be spending mine helping my Mom with a yard sale (fun, fun).  ;)
