Pals Blog Hop: Create Your Own Background with Glitter Washi Tape

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Create Your Own Background. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create this card using the Scary Cute Bundle and Glitter Washi Tape from Stampin' Up! Halloween Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' PrettyMy background was created by adding the fabulous new Glitter Washi Tape from the NEW July – December Mini Holiday Catalog.  I paired it with one of My Favorite Things – the Scary Cute Bundle.

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Gray Granite card stock. 

Adhere strips of Glitter Washi Tape to a 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black card stock as shown. 

Use a Paper Trimmer or Paper Snips to trim the edges of the washi tape to be even with the card stock. 

Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the  Scary Silhouette Dies to crop the following: 

  • Basic Black card stock:  cat, bat, haunted house and scary frame (two layered dies)
  • Gray Granite card stock: frame background

Adhere the scary frame and haunted house to the Gray Granite die-cut with snipped-to-size Black Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Adhere the bat and cat as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cover with white Basic’s Embossing Powder.  Set with a Heat Tool.

  1. Hi Mar
    I love yr card very pretty I love going through the blog hop every month seeing all the creativity I learn something new every time

  2. This card just sealed the deal for me. I knew I wanted the washi tape, but your card made me want the bundle. So cute! Love it!

  3. You are so clever to use the glitter washi tape for the background of this very fun Halloween card. Enjoy your day!

    • This card could be easily duplicated with card stock strips and another theme such as Christmas, etc. Think of it as just a template. Mary

  4. Simply adorable Mary! Love seeing how you put your own stamp on Scary Cute:)

  5. Oh my! I love everything about this card! The small touches are wonderful like the little banner and the cat on top of the layer.
