Clean & Simple Washi Tape

Yesterday I held my New Catalog Open House and Retired Items Garage Sale. Many of my boxed up retired stamp sets as well as retired DSP, Ribbon & Embellishments have found new homes and those who were able to attend left with smiles carrying their treasures. Each guest also made this card featuring the Label Love stamp set and Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape.
For many of us, including me, this was the first time we used washi tape on a card front. I LOVE that it is repositionable so if (when) you don't get it placed exactly where you want it the first time you can lift it up and start again without damaging the washi tape or the card. Genius!

Today is the last day to Grab Your Greetings!

Sale: 25% off three of our greeting sets!
No limits through

Hello to You is the June Paper Pumpkin kit featuring the very trendy hexagon. This first card is assembled as instructed in the kit using the Soft Suede ink provided...
For these 3 cards, I brought out my Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Regal Rose classic Ink Pads...

and some Daffodil Delight 1/4" Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon...
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit subscription service provided by Stampin' Up! so kits sent out in months past are no longer available but if you would like to receive future kits you can sign up at I would appreciate it if you would indicate me as your demonstrator on the sign up page.

If you are in my local area I invite you to my Open House and Rubber Garage Sale on Saturday. Bring a friend and come to see me!
