Washi Tape and Batty Halloween Hello

I absolutely LOVE Halloween...not the gory, twisted stuff--but the fun and silly stuff. So, when I saw Stampin' Up!'s new Halloween Hello stamp set, I *had* to get it! That spastic-looking little bat was calling to me :-) I also received a free package of the Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape at the Stampin' Up! Convention last month, and I wanted to break that out and play with it. There are lots of washi tape cards online for inspiration, this is what I finally made, after ooooohing and aaaaaahing over them all:


Here is a picture of the whole stamp set, and you can get the Halloween Hello Wood-Mount Stamp Set or the Halloween Hello Clear-Mount Stamp Set. Personally, because the images are on the small side, I got the wood-mount. Smaller images tend to get lost on my desk, or batted around by my cat, and I stand a much better chance of finding them with that wood block attached! The bat is my favorite image, and the candy corns come in a close second. I don't mind skull images if they aren't creepy, and the silly one in this set is just perfect for me. Can't you just see how funny it would look with little googlie eyes??


The washi tape is fantastic, I highly recommend it! It is super easy to work with, it tears easily, and even peels back without tearing your card stock, if you decide it's not quite where you want it. Its low-tack makes it perfect to mask off parts of your card when spritzing or sponging, yet it still sticks down smoothly and securely. This is not just cheap dollar store cello tape or masking tape with patterns printed on it--it is super high quality, with an almost waxy finish that lends durability, and offers a classy, satiny finish.

If you'd like to dive into this trend, you can get ALL 12 washi tape rolls that Stampin' Up! currently offers, along with a downloadable class that includes 7 PDFs, 2 videos, plus a package of 20 Note Cards & Envelopes, in the What to Washi Bundle for $36.95 total. If you just want the class, and not the 12 washi tape rolls, or the cards & envelopes, you can get the What to Washi Class by itself for $14.95. [click image of flyer to see it full-size]


Although the class bundle offers all 12 rolls of washi tapes that Stampin' Up! offers, the designs are offered in individual packages of 3 rolls each. Click on any of these package names to see the tapes bundled in each: Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape, Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape, Season of Style Designer Washi Tape, and Witches' Brew Designer Washi Tape. Mix and match your washi tape between packages for even MORE versatility.
