Yes you can!

Hello friends! Hope your week is starting off well. Today's Tuesday Tape tip is stamping on the Japanese Masking Tapes. "Yes you can!" The washi tapes withstand heat very well which makes them ideal for stamping and embossing the images. Here's a quick tutorial on this technique.

I'll be using the following styles today:

Let's get started...

First place strips of the masking tapes on white heavy card stock.

Next stamp your image with black ink, I used Versafine Black Onyx and sprinkled clear embossing powder over the image. You can use Stayz On back ink if you don't want to emboss your image but I suggest embossing because the finished look is so much nicer.
I used a flower from Hero Arts Cling set

Here's the embossed image. Notice the tape is not wrinkled at all from the heat emboss. Now you're ready to cut out your image and create your card.

Here's my finished card. I layered some other styles of the masking tapes on the right side of the card and stamped a Hero Arts sentiment on the left. I added some pop dots behind the cut out images to add dimension and used some gems in the center of the flowers to draw out the yellow tape from behind the flowers.
This card took 25 mins from start to finish
