Washi Tape

Hello Crafters,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I share with you a card that we did at my Punch Art class a week or so ago. I wanted to share with the class just how easy it is to create a card in just a few minutes with Washi Tape!!!

Petite Petals

All we did was apply 3 strips of Wash Tape to one side of the card before using Petite Petals Bundle, Label Love Bundle and the Papillon Potpourri and coordinating punch.

Begin by stamping the images onto cardstock, punching them out and adhering them with dimensionals to the card. It’s that easy!!!!

Stampin’ Up! have some amazing stamp sets with coordinating punches and I have used 3 of them here.

Gingham Garden Washi Tape

I accidentally splashed a little bit of pink ink onto my card, so instead of getting mad and throwing it away and starting again, I decided to bring out the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and grunge it up a bit… you can’t even tell I made a mistake right?!!!!

The Washi Tape is Gingham Garden and this also has a coordinating Designer Series Paper.

The inks used are Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. They are so bright and cheery.

I also added some rhinestones to the centres of the flowers for a bit of bling.

Post-it Note Holders

Hello Stampers,

I have been busy making some post-it note holders for Christmas gifts and thank yous. Actually I have made 24 in total so far and here are a few that I made yesterday.

You can make 3 of these from 1 A4 sheet of cardstock, add a little pen and embellish as you like. I love the Gingham Garden DSP and butterflies. I think they are so cheery especially as today is the 1st day of summer and 30 degrees!

It is even strong enough to hold pens and scissors, just a pity it doesn’t hold my coffee!!!! hehe

Card Gift Idea

Good morning stampers,

I have a little gift idea that I would like to share with you!


It’s a blank case that the Stampin’ Up! clear mount stamps come in and I have decorated it with the Garden Gingham Designer Series Paper. Isn’t it a wonderful way to use the DSPs.

I thought it would make a very cool gift and enclosed are 3 of my favourite matching cards I have made with this same DSPs.

They are only $9.95 for 4 cases!

Do you agree this is a lovely gift?

Happy Stamping,
