Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter W. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their W element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber’s blog ~ Scrapper’s Therapy

Waste Not Want Not with Washi Wonder!
For you today I am sharing the wonderful Washi Wonder stamp set. I am a bit of a hoarder but this stamp set prevents me from collecting too many rolls of washi tape. There are 24 designs on the stamp set and the colour combinations are unlimited with your choice of cardstock and inks. Even the shape can be dictated by you as you can trim down and shape up your washi pieces. Finally this is an awesome stamp set for all your wastage – those trims off your cricut cut sheets, that half inch you just chopped of that 12 inch piece of card, even a quarter inch or and eighth inch strip can be stamped for lots of fun and variety!
I had Pinata photos to scrapbook and since the pinata is made with layers of colourful paper and ends up as and even more colourful mess the washi stamp set was perfect for the layout. ( I am debating adding even more to the page but I think there is enough there). I took the colours from the photo of the busted pinata and ran with that to get the look n this page.
I have stamped the background with Geometric Background Stamp set (D1559) and Lagoon ink, used the bright pink B and T duo paper from Chantilly and the purple from Laughing Lola as a background to photos mounted on colourful cardstock (Honey and Autumn Terracotta). To add the decorative touch I just randomly stamped coordinating colours onto scrap Colonial white cardstock and then selected pieces to look like they were holding the photos and elements onto the page. I am really pleased with the bit of fun the washi stamp has added to the layout and the photos. The title is done with the Urban Alphabet stamp set. I love that I do not run out of vowels anymore!
This is of course a special stamp set – exclusive to those who host a Close To My Heart Gathering as a special reward at a special price. I will say no more about how you get it other than to get in touch with your consultant now if you have not got this one yet! Be sure to host a gathering with your consultant before the current cycle (end of January) ends. Being summer holidays here in Australia I have a limited number of openings for gatherings in my area and I can help you organise a virtual one too! If you are too busy before Christmas ask us about the New Year! It will be your last chance to grab this stamp set.
If you prefer the real deal Washi Tape checkout these two cards using the Sparkle and Shine Washi Tape. One has the Washi Tape in the background. The stamp on the Front is from the Seasons Tweetings kit. The other is using the wide green Washi tape, pleated to form the tree. I added buttons using liquid glass and some sparkles to give it that bit of bling.
