Washi Congrats

Hello Stampers…today I’m using a bit of Washi Tape to make a congratulations card.

I’m not big on torn Washi so I cut all my pieces. That’s the great thing about cardmaking…you make it the way you want. I have really been using the Balloon Bouquet Punch a great deal…it makes such festive balloons.

That bit of Silver Washi Tape is now retired but it just fit this card so perfectly I had to use it.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Thoughtful Banners

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Tip Top Taupe, Melon Mambo, Black, Silver Foil, Whisper White

Accessories – Duet Banner Punch, Balloom Bouquet Punch, White Bakers Twine, Pop of Pink Washi Tape, Silver Washi Tape



By popping up the balloons and the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals the card has depth. If you have a bunch of Washi Tape laying around you really should keep it handy and add a strip or two or more to your next card. I had forgotten all about how Washi Tape adds to a card. 

This is a great card to use for either male or female. I like that since I really don’t make many masculine type cards. 

Hope you enjoyed today’s card and will try to make some cards using Washi Tape. Remember…once you create your own card, send me a photo via email and you could be my next Guest Stamper!

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!



Thinking of You in Love and Affection

I’m really enjoying the Love & Affection stamp set. This card has a bit of fussy cutting but so worth it.

Thinking of You in Love & Affection 2

I used DSP to stamp these flowers – I like the effect. I think the retired Candy Dots also add to this card. I love those dots too bad they are retired. (I still have a nice stash of them!)

I’m also getting a lot of use out of the Duet Banner Punch. Using the two with the larger in a different color really gives the message a punch. (No pun intended.)

The touch of Calypso Coral on those little background flowers really pop. I’m very pleased with how this card came out.

Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Love & Affection, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Wild Wasabi, Calypso Coral

Paper – Whisper White, Black, Wild Wasabi, DSP (R)

Accessories – Duet Banner Punch, Candy Dots (R)

Hope you enjoyed my creation.

Happy Stamping!

Sending a Smile in Love and Affection

Here’s a card you can use for almost any occasion. The theme for last months cards was Get Well but I just put a simple phrase on the front and left the inside blank so I can add something later or put a handwritten message inside.

Love the screen look from the Touches of Texture Set. It makes a great background.

Sending a Smile with Love and Affection 2

This close up shows how I slightly curved each flower and leaf. Yes, I did do some fussy cutting on this one. I used Melon Mambo with our new Sweet Sugarplum and I love the combination. The Rhinestones and the silver cord from last year add just a touch of sparkle. The new Duet Banner Punch really makes the sentiment stand out.

Products used:

Stamp Sets – Love and Affection, Touches of Texture

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Whisper White, Black, Melon Mambo, Sweet Sugarplum

Accessories – Rhinestones, Silver Cord, Duet Banner Punch

Hope you enjoyed today’s card. I got some great ideas from the friend I was visiting in NC and I hope to show you some soon.

Happy Stamping!
