Washi Tape and Big Notes 3—more IBS sneak peeks

It's the last day of Inspired by Stamping's April new release sneak peeks; tomorrow the stamps will be available for purchase in the IBS shop. Today we're creating with the new Washi Tape stamps (so cool!) and the new Big Notes III and Big Wishes II sets.

The serifs on the Big Notes III set put me in a vintage mood, that I encouraged with one of the vintage look Washi Tape floral stamps.

With ten stamps in the Washi tape set, there's one for every taste. I'm a newcomer to Washi. It's only recently that I've started seeing it here in France and it's still not easy to find. A quality to Washi is its transparency so I decided to play that up with the stamps by stamping on transparent paper. I was super impressed with how these stamps performed. I cut the ends ragged to mimic tape.

I used them on the inside of the card as well.

Doesn't it look just like tape?! You don't ever after to worry about running out and you can create in any color you choose to match your projects.

There will be special offers and goodies up for grabs at the Inspired by Stamping store during the new release. Tomorrow, April 10th, is the official release date with all new stamps available for purchase at 7 p.m. Brisbane, Australia time.
