Introducing Washi Tapes (Decorative Paper Tapes)

Hello Buddies,

Hope everyone in the crafting world is brimming with creativity… I have been a silent spy of all your blogs but sorry have missed commenting on your beautiful creations.

Today I have some "Awesum news" to share with everyone…I was introduced to this brilliant product "Washi tape" some time back, through a mail swap and oh my its definitely got me hooked to it…
For the benefit of my dear friends who aren't aware of this amazing product, I thought I’d give you an overview of just what it is and perhaps you might want to try it. For starters, “Washi Tape” comes from Japan, is a paper tape that comes in pretty colors and patterns. It comes on a roll like regular sticky tape, and is often translucent. You can find it in 1/4 widths up to 2 1/2 inches, and it feels more like masking tape than true “paper.” Since hitting the crafting world by storm, many major scrapbooking companies have come out with their own versions.

The cards below randomly picked from google are an example of what can be done with these beautiful paper tapes. There are several uses to this amazing tape, you can jazz up a plain wrapping paper, add some tape to your plain journal or a gift envelope or make quick cards. The creative uses are endless…

"Now to the Awesum News"
I am proud to announce that I will be the first in India to introduce “Washi Tapes to you on my craft lounge”… Yes Yes you heard me right…These tapes will now be available for sale….

I am now taking pre-orders for these tapes from “Today till 25th May 2012 midnight”,So anyone who is interested in placing an order can contact me on for the catalogue and price details

Also as an Introductory offer for all my crafty crops “Buy 10 or more tapes at a time and Get 5% discount”…haven’t I motivated you enough;-) But this offer is valid only till 31st May 2012 midnight…

Last but not the least I would also like to offer a Blog candy…Yipee;-)

Few things you need to do is
1)Add your name to the inlinkz below and comment about whats your idea of a Washi Tape
2)Add the Blog Candy Pic(heap of tapes above} on your side bar with a link back to my blog to promote this blog candy so that all our crafty friends can participate… The Candy is open till 31st May 2012 midnight
3)This Blog candy is open only for Indian participants…
4)I will announce the winner on 3rd June 2012…The Winner will get to choose “3 Washi Tapes of your choice”…

So that’s all from my side currently girls….Hope you are going to have as much fun as I did after getting hold of this super Washi Tape.

Loads of Love
Happy Crafting

I hope 2012 is going to get a lot of crafting out of me...So now lets get to showing you two simple CAS cards that i made..Oh yes for me the new things I learnt in this process...never made one layer cards so it was fun but I must admit quite another fun technique learnt...Stamping...God this was my biggest fears but managed to get a hang of it...

So here the first Card

1) This Card is CASED from one of Tejals CAS cards (sry for some reason cudnt add the link here) ...I just cant thank her enough for all the tips she has given me to start getting into stamping...(Also to buy the supplies)...Thanks a ton buddy...this Card is solely for YOU....

2)Flower Power: I just went randomly experimenting stamping with all colors i got in the New Momento Dew Drops pack....and to my surprise i just loved the way the Card turned out...
Later realized that i didnt even leave any space for the sentiment lol;-)NO Issues i stamped in the inside to give the recipient a quick surprise...

I am submitting these cards for the ICR14 challenge CAS Cards...

I definitely hope to be more regular with my posts...And I will also start blog surfing to see all your lovely creations...Thanks girls for being there...

Happy Crafting,
Love Rachana
