Its fun and easy to use these supplies and create some nice quick cards or tags or boxes anything as you like.
Please follow the rules and guidlines we all love the art and hardwork you all put up in the why to miss the chance.. and now... my inspiration for all of you..

firstly, I have created this cute tag...
for the base I have taken white cardstock and distresed it using my distress inks and blending tool, then for the above layer I stamped my background text stamp from kaisercraft with versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder and den again distressed it.
I totally love magnolia stamps.. specially I have used travelling tilda - stamped colored and fussy cut.. for the 3d look I have added foam tape at the back and to give wall like look used adhesive backed pearls and washi tapes and finally added buttons and sentiment and ribbon and its done...
Now , I have made two cute cas cards... and added simple sentiment..

Challenge #4 Anything goes with WASHI and STAMPS

Hello Everyone,
Hope you all are enjoying this easy challenge #4
My fellow DTs have posted their inspirations.
A big Thank you to Charu Joshi for joining us as a Guest Designer of this month...Loved your use of Washi Tapes... :)

Today is my turn to show you some easy yet interesting things made out of washi tapes and stamps.
I have fallen in love with Washi Tapes...Sometimes its a rescue when time is less and you want to quickly make something...

Similar is my first inspiration.......It's a CARD... A birthday card 

I first stuck 3 different washi tapes in a diagonal and then made a flower with Washi Tape, added a little Twine bow, punched butterflies, and Stamped birthday wish....with a wooden peg on which happy days washi tape is stuck ..... my card is almost ready... As I wanted to use the big candle stamps I stamped it on a Pattern paper and stuck it inside the card...with a birthday Washi and red glitter washi tape as a border.

stick many Washi tapes in diagonals 

The pink flower is made using Washi Tape.

inside of the card... Stamped big candles and Wish Big stamp
and added HAPPY BIRTHDAY Washi tape as a sentiment ...little space to write personal message
And my card is ready.... Isn't it easy and colorful...
Hope you all like the card.

Here's my second Washi and Stamping Product

Its a Tissue box.....which I have decorated with washi tapes and lots of stamped flowers,leaves and butterfly... ( This tissue box now I am using in my car... now at Traffic signals people definitely turn their heads to see whats kept in the car)

HI peeps
our month long challenge #4 anything goes with washi and stamps is going on... its easy and fun filled challenge....
and now
we warmly welcome our first guest dt for kraftzone challenges... CHARU ...

Hello every one
This is Charu Joshi from Crafted Creations , first of all I would like to thank team Kraft Zone for selecting my projects as toppers for two consecutive months and a special thanks to Nupur for giving me this opportunity to share a post here as a guest..
The theme for this month is Use Washi Tapes and Stamp..
When we think of washi tapes, lots of vibrant colors, designs and patterns come in our mind.. They are so decorative themselves that we just stick them on something and the looks transforms in a  better finished and better looking project..
There are various ways of using Washi Tapes in your projects..
I made this CAS card using  washi tapes..

There are a numerous ways of using washi tapes.. will discuss few over here

Use washi tapes on border for any project...
Also you can stick washi at the border and then punch it to give a different look

 Stick washi on ribbon half way , like this

and then fold it to give beautiful pleats... like this
Stick the washi in the centre of a long strip of cardstock to create a beautiful rosett..  A different rose flower made by scoring at equal distance..

Another project that I am here to share with you all is ..... something that I literally picked from the bin to keep it again on my table...
My husband is a doctor, and he had this prescription paper dispenser on his table. It was sponsored by a pharmaceutical company, so when the paper in it got finished, he threw it in the bin...  At the same time when ever I had to jot down a list (may it be a grocery list or a things to do list) I used to run around for paper..
So I thought I will probably give it a new life, and use it on my table...
And I started working on it... 

Painted it with White acrylic paint

Added beautiful n vibrant washi tapes

Then decorated with Prima flowers, butterfly and other embellishments..

Cut few plain white A-4 sheets into small square paper pieces to fit on top.. 

And tadaaa....  here's the finished product... 
My very own paper dispenser for my lists and jot down points  is ready.....  

I hope you liked my projects and discussions in this post, and it inspires you to make your own projects
 to participate in this month's challenge and win goodies for yourself..
Happy crafting !!!
