Tangled Tinsel by Karen Amidon

Looks like this kitty has gotten tangled in the tinsel!

Who knew the Silver Metallic Rainbow Tape would be ideal for creating tinsel! I had fun tangling the teeny tiny 1/32" tape around this adorable kitty! 

On the inside of the card I repeated the 1/32" Silver Metallic tape for my tinsel.
The top and bottom of the die cut are trimmed with the 1/8" silver metallic tape. love that shine!

Rainbow Tape comes in several different colors and sizes. To see more designs using their tapes you can visit the DT Blog here.

You can see more details about this card on my blog!

Winter Bird by Jenny Gropp

Hello! Jenny here sharing an easy card!

 No coloring today. Just pretty paper dressed up with a little 

 Here's my stack of stuff before I assembled it all and added foam tape for dimension. You can see the shiny silver edges. I used the very thinnest tape. The 1/32" size. It adds such a delicate edge. I can't
 cut a layer that tiny and get it straight! 

More Rainbow Tape lines the edge of the Stitched Frame Die on the inside.

Thankful for You by Jeanne Streiff

I love fall colors and nothing sets them off better that a touch of gold. Today I used 1/16" gold metallic tape to accent my sentiment.

I watercolored a splashy image (see colors below). After it was completely dry I stamped my sentiment with black ink.

I inked up my leaf stamps in orange (Spiced Marmalade) and then tapped in a bit of deep red Aged Mahogany) ink randomly before stamping. Because it was on watercolor I needed to stamp more than once to get a nice solid image. I kept going stamping leaves until I had framed the sentiment.

I finished my card by adding some 1/16" gold metallic tape from Hobby Tape under the sentiment words and adhering the panel to a kraft card base.

Merry Christmoose!

Hi - Lydia here today! I discovered something so fun through a mistake that I had to try to reproduce it. 

I noticed that when I was using crepe tape on an uneven surface, as a mask, that - well, it didn't work :). BUT, it did something very cool - it pooled  and intensified the color under the tape, and sort of left a ghostly image of the tape in its place after it was removed. I never consider an accident a finished experiment until I can reproduce it, so I tried again. I used watered down Golden Fluid Acrylic paint, and 1/4" crepe tape to create vertical and horizontal stripes on Canvas Paper. Even if you press the tape firmly down, it won't adhere to the primed canvas, but it will preserve the shape of the masked areas in a really cool way. All supplies are linked below.

I thought that bright splash of pink brought some holiday cheer!

Thanks for looking.

Ruff Day Treat Bag

Jenny here today!

 Know someone having a Ruff Day? Cheer them up with a little treat bag full of their favorite candies. The Crazy Dogs plus chocolate is a guaranteed smile! 

Black Rainbow Tape is a staple that just resides on my desk permanently. It's the perfect little divider between layers or patterns. I love a clean black line! You can see it below on my doggie bag dividing the plaid and the paw print embossed paper. I used the 1/8" width, which is probably my most used along with the 1/16" size.

Here's a LINK to all the black tape sizes!

Copics used to color him up: W9, W4, Y26, R59, R29, E47, E44, E43, E40
A little glossy accents on the nose and eyes livens him up a bit!

Special by Jeanne Streiff

Hi! Jeanne here today with a fall card.

I added a strip of old book page onto kraft cardstock and stamped my leaves with my MISTI . I used a wet paintbrush and ink to add some shadows and sponged a little ink around the image. I added the sentiment in black ink.

To finish my card I used 1/16" black masking tape from Hobby Tape for a border.
