Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Today I share 2 cards using the beautiful new Washi tapes and Embossing Paste from Altenew, this post is part of a new release and if you are hopping along you should have arrived here from NICOLE’s amazing Blog!

My first card uses the Teal Shadow Washi Tape and I wanted to create a matching Embossing paste so I added some Sea Glass Dye Ink and it mixed beautifully!

I used the Molded Lines Stencil, and then popped up some flowers from the Adore You Stamp Set.  The sentiment and hearts are from the Sweet Hearts Adhesive Wood Veneers.

For my second design I added the Embossing Paste directly to the card front with the Beveled Squares Stencil.

Then I used the Gold String Washi inside the card.  Both the flower and the sentiment are from the Engraved Flowers Stamp Set.

  1. You have made really beautiful cards using the new Washi tapes and embossing paste. They are really gorgeous. Wonderful inspiration as usual. Thank you.

  2. I have always loved your creativity. And I have previously bought the washi tape. It is so beautiful. But I have a problem getting the roll of tape started without it ripping off in little pieces as I get it to unroll. Do you have any suggestions?

    1. ooh, I think the trick is to go ‘slow’ and work all the way down the edge until it’s all free and then pull the tape back. Hope this is helpful, Crafty hugs, Therese

  3. Beautiful card! I love all the texture and the way you cut the cardstock at an angle- adds so much interest!

  4. At first glance I did not realize you had cut away a portion of the front of the second card. What a great idea. Both cards are fabulous. I NEED these new washi tapes. TFS

  5. Therese, I love your second card. It is so divine as if it is for a woman of the moment! Perfect for weddings, I believe. Too beautiful for Just Because card, in my opinion. Thank you for inspiration. Keep inspiring us, grasshoppers! 🙂

  6. Both cards are beautiful, and I love the design of the second card. Don’t you just love those watercolors from Altenew? I’ve resisted the wide Washi tapes from Altenew thus far, but I think with these I’m going to have to order some. 🙂

  7. Your layout/design is outside the box for me and that’s great! It makes me more adventuresome to try something new! Your cards are beautiful!

  8. Both cards are beautiful! I love the colors on the first one but I love how the gold string Washi tape shows from inside because of the cut you made on the second one

  9. I love how you layered all of the different mediums. Really gives a unique, polished look to the cards. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Love the first card and how you matched the blue washi to your embossing paste with the ink. And the second card is stunning! Love the reverse open look, and that flower is gorgeous! The gold stripey washi is so rich looking! Thanks for the inspiration Therese!

  11. I have just come from your YouTube channel ; your second card is so lovely. The sea breeze ink with the embossing paste worked beautifully. And I like the gold strings washi card – it is so elegant, yet unique. Will have to try that! Thanks for the inspiration. 😁

  12. Easy to see why the Gold String washi distracted you! 🙂 And I love the way you combined the embossing and the watercolor. Gorgeous!!

  13. So beautiful Therese and fabulous idea having the washi tape on the inside!
    The new embossing paste looks very light and fluffy, cannot wait to try. The
    New washi tapes are gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing.
    T x

  14. You never fail to come up with gorgeous cards! Would love to be a fly in your head as to glean what nifty ideas you imagine! TFS

  15. Lots of “wows” in your pots today! That flower is stunning and the Washi tape is amazing. Love how you manage to showcase the Washi, the embossing paste and the stamps at the same time. Great cards!

  16. Therese, these new Washi tapes are gorgeous, my most favorite is the one with all the greenery.
    Your card is amazing, lovely coloring and fabulous layout to show this beautiful flower.
    Thank you for sharing.
    XO
    Maria Rodriguez.

  17. I always love your commentary! I also really enjoyed the different cut angle of your design. Keep up the fun inspiration.

  18. Gorgeous cards! I particularly like the second one and the unique way you cut the front. Thanks for sharing and for the great video! It really helps me to watch how you put your cards together.

  19. Dear Therese
    Wow as always. You are a genius. I hv used wash tape once but never the embossing paste. I want to learn how to use it. Loved both cards but first was my personal preference. Love and hugs

  20. Both your cards with these amazing washi tapes are beautiful!!! I love the way you combined the embossing paste with the washi tapes on your cards, really unique! Thank you for sharing!

  21. Lovely cards, Therese. I really like your pairing with the wood chip word. Definitely organic! Embossing paste is so fun too. I rarely get it out, because of the mess and yet I love the look!

  22. I’m always happily surprised by your designs! Just love the texture added with the paste and really love the unique way you used the washi tape. Altenew’s washi tapes are gorgeous and your designs really highlighted them beautifully! 💛

  23. I love the green washi tape with gold foil. Very elegant. ‘Course, I also love the gold stripe and the outlined flowers . . . Thank you for the great layout idea–very cool.

  24. Gorgeous cards. I love the card with the embossing paste that was colored first. It looks stunning with your floral image. Thanks for the inspiration.

  25. Wow Therese! Your cards are stunning because of the products (gorgeous new washi tape, tinted embossing paste) and the way you trimmed your cards. The new tapes are stunning here on your cards, by giving your card a unique shape helps to set them off.

  26. Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I LOVE the unique style. All the new washi tapes are beautiful, and the Gold String is definitely one of my favorites.

  27. Your cards are so pretty, Therese! I love how you used the gold string washi and cut the card at an angle….so creative!

  28. A beautiful combination of pattern paper, texture, and stamping. It all works so wonderfully together.

  29. What delightful cards. Love how you combined the paste and washi on your cards. Everything worked so well together. Love watching your videos Therese. You are awesome.

  30. Love your cards and as always, I loved your video! I love that you angled the stencil to look like a ray of light shining behind the flower! Beautiful!

  31. Beautiful cards! I love how you applied the washi tape to the inside of the card and then have the opening so it can be seen from the front.

  32. Wow, love the embossing paste as it looks like whipped cream, so know I have to have that. The new Washi is phenomenal and so awesome and yes have to have those. You are sooo creative and talented with always inspiring people. Soooooo appreciate your sharing your amazing talents.

  33. What pretty cards. I love the died embossing paste. Engraved flowers is one of my favorite stamp sets and I love the background you created for it. TFS
