It’s Wednesday today, which means its “Washi Wednesday” where we get to create cards using the lovely Washi Tape.
I did these cards a couple of weeks ago for some Thank You Cards for my customers. I ended up doing a couple of each which is unusual for me as I don’t often create a number of the same cards, but I love how quick & easy cards are able to be created using Washi Tape. You don’t have to have a couple of layers like I have, you could easily just create using your Base Card.

A huge thank you once again, to everyone who has been supporting us throughout our adventure/s. It is very much appreciated.
Each month we release a set of 3 cards using DSP (Designer Series Paper), along with a Sketch, Supplies, Measurements & Instructions. It is a way to get you to use up that lovely stash of Paper you have sitting in your cupboard. The sketches are able to be used over & over so that you are creating entirely different looks.
This month we are playing with the lovely DSP Stack – Playful Palette. I will admit although I love the papers I was finding them very hard to use. Now that I have cut into it, ideas are flowing!
Throughout the month, I will be creating more cards using this lovely paper, so be sure to pop back to check them out.
We hope you will join us this month. To purchase your Tutorial, please click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.
If you are not familiar with this, it is to try & get you to use your DSP lying around in your cupboard which you don’t really want to cut into, but know that you have so much of the stuff that you really have to start using it. I know, I was exactly the same & now, well I just love making that first cut into the Paper! The beauty of these Tutorials, is that the DSP does not have to be current, just as long as you are using your DSP is all that matters.
As mention in my Newsletter, I am going to try & convince you all to use your “Washi Tape” & try something new. With that in mind, let’s call it “Washi Wednesday, so hopefully each Wednesday I will have a card using this fantastic product. Stampin’ Up! have the most gorgeous Tape & I can bet we all have a bunch of it hey. I thought it would be a great idea to start using it & then try & encourage you to play with it. I know, I bet it is sitting in the bottom of your drawer!!!!! The beauty about Washi Tape is it can help create quick & easy cards which can still have a WOW about them.
I’ve actually created my card using a sketch I made way back in June – same layout, different look. You will be able to see the original one by clicking on this link & another card using the same layout here.

I have been very quiet the last week but that doesn’t mean to say that I have not been creating. Although in saying that things happen & we get a bit sidetracked.
Today’s card is one created a little while ago for a couple of “Thank You” Cards & I’ve suddenly realised that I never shared it.
The card is simple design using the lovely Stamp Set – “Grateful Bunch” along with the co-ordinating Blossoms Punch. I’ve added little touches of Mint Maracron with the Blender Pen in the leaves. It was teamed up with Flirty Flamingo Ink & Cardstock along with Basic Black & Whisper White Cardstock. I finished it off by adding a large Pearls to the centre of the flower & then randomly scattering small ones around the front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
PS Goes to show how busy I am creating for you as I did post this Card, but never mind, just in case you missed it! Have a lovely day!

My card today is one I created for a special friend who did a couple of things for me. I was very much taken back by her kindness so thought a nice card would show my appreciation.
I don’t have a tutorial for you today, but will try & remember how I did the card from the photo – the original has long gone in the post.
I’ve used the “Cups & Kettles” Framelits Dies (retired) for my card. I cut a piece of the “Have a Cuppa” DSP (retired) & adhered it to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card. The “Pleated Skirt” has been created from the same DSP Stack. It was then adhered to the top of the DSP before layering a piece of Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon above the skirt & again across the top of the skirt.
The Teapot was cut from Melon Mambo Card using the Framelit Dies & adhered onto the Card Front. The lid was adhered above the Teapot with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Heart has been cut from Melon Mambo Card & adhered to the Card. The wavy lines were cut from scraps of Whisper White Card & adhered across the Teapot.
I stamped the Sentiment from “A Nice Cuppa” Stamp Set (retired), direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The Card Front was then layered to the Base Card – Whisper White.
Once again, thank you so much for your support & feedback. I love creating & it is always a great feeling when you know that there are people out there that enjoy your work. It helps to keep you going!
My card today is one I created sometime ago & actually forgot to post. Better later than never!
I’ve used the lovely little “Grateful Bunch” Stamp Set, along with the matching “Blossom” Punch. You have to love Stampin’ Up! for making creating so easy. I’ve teamed it up with the new In-Colour – Flirty Flamingo, but kept it simple with Basic Black & Whisper White.
I quickly coloured the leaves with Mint Macaron using my Blender Pen & scattered Pearls to finish the card.
Don’t forget, if you click on the link above the photo, you are able to download a free tutorial which includes a list of supplies & measurements (imperial & metric).
I’ve used the Emboss Resist Technique on my card today. It happens to be one of the Techniques from our current Technique Treats, along with the Double Embossing Technique. I will be honest & say that this is one of my favourite techniques. All kinds of possibilities. I’ve also used the “Swirly Bird” Bundle.
I wasn’t too sure what I was going to do with the piece once I had created it, but then decided to cut it into pieces to create a Mosaic Background. I’m very happy with the card now.
