You should have arrived here from the fabulous Svitlana Shayevich's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is The Ton's blog!

I have to tell you, these washi tapes are GORGEOUS.   

Here's how I was inspired:

These washi's are so much fun to play with.  I combined the Pink Peonies with the Hustle and Grind Sentiments.  The sentiment has been heart embossed in charcoal.   

I adhered a strip of the washi on a Neenah Solar White panel.  I loaded it up with my embossing buddy.  I made sure that my heat gun was super hot before starting the process and kept moving it in a circular motion.  There was no disruption with the metallic details on the washi.

I placed a smaller oyster cardstock layer on top.

I couldn't resist doing an envelope liner too!  What do you think?!

Check out my project that uses the Wildflowers:

I decided to keep the overall design that I used for my first project.  This time I used a sentiment from The New Pretty   

I heat embossed the sentiment in black.  I love how it POPS!

I can't wait to hop around and see how everyone else was inspired!  Next up is the amazing Lisa Harolle!
