When I find myself low on mojo, which has been the case for the past few weeks, I look at challenges and troll the blogs in my reader to look for some inspiration.
Today I saw this card on the Love My Tapes blog:
and I got a clue! Heaven knows I have enough washi tape, and I even have THAT washi tape.
I started playing, and then I realized the full-card dies I have are ... um ... full card, which means they are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I normally work on 4" panels so of course all my taped panels were too small to fit behind the die-cut pieces. Drat.
Once I figured that out, though, I was better. Here are the two cards I made ...
First, one using the same tape used on the Love My Tapes blog card:
and next, one that uses some MME tape in my favorite colors:
I thought I wanted to go back and fill in a happy and a birthday in a darker color, but in the end, I just decided to leave them alone.
I may have found a way to disappear a lot of washi tape! Oh, the possibilities!
And a bonus for me: This is the first time I've used this background die, even though I needed to own it when I first saw it, at least a year ago. It was still in its original packaging. This qualifies me to enter my cards in the current NBUS challenge over at Darnell's blog:
Wow, I've made two cards this weekend. See what I mean? No mojo. I sure hope I snap out of this soon, as I've got a crafty weekend coming up. Maybe the other ladies' mojo will be contagious. I sure hope so!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: Washi tape from Recollections, and the following:
