March Design Team Projects

I have two projects to share with you today.

First up is a design team project for the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog. I created this “thinking of you” card using the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #906 with the A insert and the Star Stencil.  After punching the star with the punch I embossed it using my Cuttlebug and then cut it in half.  I then added the doily to the top of my banner and added the flowers.  I don’t know about you but I think this card says “Spring” in on the way.



Next up is a design team project for the Turtle Soup March Mini Crop.

For the March Mini Crop I completed a layout. All the supplies I used I had in my stash (still working on using up all those hoarded supplies). I created the mat for the photo by using: masking tape, Gesso, and some Tim Holtz Distress Stain.
My challenge for you is to complete a layout, card, ATC or altered project using tape … any kind of tape.

Check out the details for the Mini Crop here.

I placed long strips of masking tape on an old plastic placemat (from the dollar store).
I then painted the strips of tape with Gesso. I let the Gesso dry completely.

I dapped the distress stain on my craft mat and added a few drops of water to it. 
I splashed and dripped the watered down stain onto the strips of tape.  (I actually propped the mat up and let the stain run down the tape.)  I let the stain dry before I peeled the strips off the placemat.

I adhered the masking tape strips to my paper, tearing the tape and placing it in random order. 
I then added washi tape and the embellishments to finish the layout.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!
