Washi Tape Masking Tutorials by Heather Greenwood using the Illustrated Faith Bloom Kit with Stephanie Ackerman

I have been loving the Bloom devotional with Stephanie Ackerman and I wanted to share a couple tutorials and how I’ve been using the kit in my Bible. First, I have a little funny confession to make: I was supposed to go on a scrapbooking retreat last Thursday and was going to leave after lunch but my USPS tracking said that my package was going to arrive that day. I totally waited for the mail to arrive before I headed on the road. I’m so happy I did because it was a nice break in my work projects to spend some time in my Bible with the devotional and stamps. Yes, I brought work with me to the scrapbooking retreat and totally didn’t get any scrapbooking done, LOL.

First, thing I did when I arrived was pull out the stamps and devotional and a few supplies. I thought a good way to keep the entries cohesive and be able to know that it came from the devotional, was to pull together a little supplies kit and use those paint colors and washi tape. With the theme of “bloom” and it being spring, I went with a very spring-ish color scheme and I’m in LOVE with it.

I jumped right in and had so much fun playing with paints and stamping. I love that the devotional has lines for journaling and writing down your thoughts. I found some scrapbook paper with some fun quotes and decided the first day I would add a tip-in. Day 2 I just used washi tape and stamped on top of it. Day 3 I knew I wanted to say, “His love is enough”. I remembered I had the word “enough” from the “You Are Enough, Made Perfectly In Him” kit, but didn’t have an “is” stamp. I knew that I could use the “His” stamp and mask off the “H”, so I stamped the whole phrase and hearts and left out the “is”

  • STEP ONE: grab a small piece of washi tape to mask off the “H”
  • STEP TWO: ink up your stamp, then remove the washi tape mask

  • STEP THREE: stamp where you want it stamped (note: quickly and lightly, especially on the slick washi tape, but also to prevent bleeding through to the other side of your Bible paper)

Days 4 through 6, I just continued to use the same paint colors and washi tape. I stayed mostly on the Bible pages but added in a journaling card on Day 6. I just thought the “adventure awaits” was so perfect for the verse and devotional. When I got to day 7 I really wanted to add some flowers to show blooming. I wanted to add the larger flower from the kit, but wanted to be sure I could read the stamped words. Washi tape isn’t permanently sticky so it’s a great option for using as a mask.

  • STEP ONE: use washi tape to cover up the part you want masked off.
  • STEP TWO: stamp over the washi taped area… as you can see there was a leaf right in the middle of the word “serve”

  • STEP THREE: remove washi tape

  • STEP FOUR: using your pen, fill in the space to connect the stamp back together again.

    Does the ink dry on the washi tape? Any time I try to write on washi tape it never dries. Thanks.

      I find you need to use a waterproof/permanent ink for both stamping and writing on washi tape. I use Staz On ink pads for example.

    So pretty! I love the idea of using consistent paint colors and washi to go with the devotional!

    Hi Heather. I’m somewhat new here, and I just want you to know that I really enjoyed your post. It is a great idea to mask using the washi tape, and I love your creativity in using the “is” from the His stamp. Great idea. I also like your tip ins. Ok, let’s face it. I like everything you did. Also Stephanie’s bloom stamps are very cute, and I’m hoping I can get them soon. Thanks for sharing….

    I just learned so many new and fabulous things! What a great post. I love the idea of using a cohesive colour palette for everything out of the devotional, that’s a fabulous idea!

    I received my Bloom kit too. I love it! Thanks for the tips with the washi tape. I always seem to forget these simple solutions! Your pages are very pretty.

    Hey Heather…girl you have some mad skills! I love how visually they are all tied together. ..another reminder to my heart as I flip through my Bible of the “collection of truths” that I gained while doing a multi-day devotional! Can’t wait to try this for myself. Thank you for sharing! ((Hugs))

    I’d LOVE a process video on how to use the distress paint. Did you dab and then use a credit card or??

    Thank you for sharing that “how to”. It is exciting to try new techniques in our Bible Journaling.
