CAS(E) this Washi!

I had a rather busy World Card Making Day morning :) Lots of fun stuff to share today, and I actually finished all my design team work (all 3 teams!) for the month of October. Whoa. I am more of a last-minute Lucy than that generally.

So, first up, a card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! and a fun washi idea. For one of the cards I can't show you yet, I needed hexagonal elements...but I don't have any hexie dies. Here's what I did to remedy that - I printed a page of hexagons on card stock (Word has an 'insert shape' option, so you can select size & so on). I cut a strip of them, lined up washi on the BACK of the printed sheet, and then used the printed guidelines to cut out my hexagons!




Supplies: sentiment stamps from Paper Smooches; Versamark; Stampendous White Detail EP; washi tape from We R Memory Keepers; recollections card stock


I'm sure it's not an earth-shattering use of washi tape but I impressed myself thinking of it :) I'm popping it in over at Moxie Fab's stickers & tape challenge too.  Here's the sketch from CTS:



And a shameless Facebook plug - I've found (after deleting that folder of photos a few weeks ago) that I have more cards to share than I'm blogging. For the most part, if you 'like' One Crafty Mama Cards on Facebook, you'll be seeing cards that won't be on the blog.

xoxo,
Jessi

Great idea for making the hexagons when you don't have the punch or whatever! CUTE card too.

I was only thinking about this technique this morning... my washi just isn't happy just to be looked at anymore, I *have* to do something about that. Thanks for the inspiration Jessi!
