Hello Washi Tape

One of the new accessories in the catalog I am really digging on is Washi Tape.  I had heard of Washi Tape before now, but I had never used it.  I have enough Stampin' Up! toys in my arsenal that I seldom stray to other brands.  But when Stampin' Up! introduced Washi Tape, of course I had to have some.  And now I see what all the fuss is about!  Here is a card I made yesterday with it:

Colors: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Night of Navy.  Stamps: Oh, Hello.  Punches: Heart and Bitty Butterfly.  Accessories: Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape, Rhinestone Jewels, Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.
This card was loosely inspired by one I saw on Stampin' Connections by Julie Pitta.  To make it, I took my Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape and layered on the bottom half of the Whisper White card stock.  To get it straight, I set the base on a piece of our fabulous grid paper.  Then I used my heart punch to make a window in that layer of the card.  You can't see it here, but I just couldn't throw that heart away, so I put it in the inside of my card.

It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but I used my Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to go around the greeting on the stamp just to add a little more interest to the card.  Oh, Hello is not a new stamp set.  It was part of a bundle in the Spring Catalog.  However, I did not get it until very recently and this was the first time I used it. (Let that be a lesson to you: always get the bundle because eventually you will want both parts of it.  I could have saved a little $$). 

We made this card at a private card class for one of my customers.  Just by inviting a few friends over to make 3 cards, she earned $50 in free product.  If you are interested in scheduling a class for you and your friends, let me know!
