It's a Washi Christmas

This week in classes we have been making Christmas Cards featuring the Seasons of Style Designer Washi Tape (#132155)
Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Cardstock make the washi tape pop. The stamp set above is Wishing You (wood #131748, clear #131751) and is found in the Holiday Catalog.
A 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock covered in washi tape makes the cutest package! The Ho Ho Ho stamp is 1 of 4 in the Oh, Goodie! (wood #131886, clear #131889) and you've got to love the ease of metal clips topped with grosgrain ribbon bows all ready prepared for you in the Old Olive Simply Styled Embellishments (#132148)
The santa stamp from the Tag It set (wood #130300, clear #130303) makes a super cute tag to place on this card. The washi tape is easy to place when you first run the Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the new Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#132174) 
How beautiful is this ornament punched from Silver Glimmer Paper with the Mosaic Punch (#131267) and the 1-3/4" Circle Punch (#119850)? It is placed over the washi tape stripes with dimensionals and finished off with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

I didn't get a picture of the envelope liner I gave to class attendees but they are fabulous and guess what? Today ONLY they are on SALE!!! It is...

Thank You Thursday!

Masking Tape Technique

Yes, masking tape. I have been wanting to try this technique for a while now so when some of my team members came over last week we did it together.
We used this gorgeous stamp from the Another Thank You
photopolymer sets. Thank you was stamped with White Craft Ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. So want to know about the masking tape? I brought out several of the 'blue' ink pads and each stripe is created by taking a length of masking tape, laying it (sticky side down) on the ink pad to pick up color and then placing it right on the Whisper White Cardstock, rub a little and tada! So fun!

Want to stamp with us next time?

October 7th - 21st, Stampin' Up! is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in a BIG way - you can become a member of my team for just $25 and join us next time we get together!
