I remember the first time I saw We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape I was at Winter CHA (Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show) and I truly wanted to somehow finagle some of the gorgeous tape into my luggage. Alas, it was a no go as it wasn't even available for purchase yet, so imagine my delight when I found out that ScrapbookSteals would be featuring the whole array of tapes as today's steal!
And what perfect timing to be featuring an amazing We R Memory Keepers product as we are thrilled to be teaming up with them for their Operation Write Home card drive to show our support of the troops stationed overseas. It's for a great cause and there are some pretty sweet prizes to be had, so you might just want to check it out!
I decided to do my part in helping We R Memory Keepers reach their goal of collecting 50,000 cards and created my initial cards this week using some red and blue tapes.
On this card I cut stars out of the red paper and then backed the two smaller stars with the blue washi tape.
I kept to the patriotic theme with this card, and again backed behind the star with blue washi, as well as a red houndstooth strip across the middle.
Next I decided to make a card using the washi flower tutorial by Misty Buck.
I had fun adding a splash of peach to this card in addition to a row of turquoise houndstooth washi.
I finished up my washi card making spree with this simple card using strips of washi to create the background of the card.
