So I have jumped onto the washi tape band wagon.
This tape is great for smash books, regular scrapbooks and a host of other projects. I wanted to find a simple way to use it on my cards. This is one of the make and takes I had at my new catalog open house. It uses the Gingham Garden Washi Tape (Item # 129314 on page 171 of the catalog). All three designs come in the package.
I also used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut the banner (I folded the card stock in half before cutting so that the banner was longer), and the saying came from the Chalk Talk stamp set. I used white craft ink stamped onto Night of Navy Card stock. Wonder of all wonders - the Chalk Talk set and framelits is available as a bundle (wood set - item 132731 or clear set - item number 132730 - both on page 12 of the catalog). You save 15% by buying these items as a bundle! Have I mentioned that I just LOVE our bundles?!
My favorite new accessories from this year's Stampin' Up! Catalog are the candy dots(page 171). These are self-adhesive colored metal dots reminiscent of the candy buttons we used to buy as kids! These are the perfect accent for any project that needs just a "little something" extra. They come in all of the Stampin' Up! four color families, so you will always have just the right color accent to go with your Stampin' Up! card stock! The dots used on this project were melon mambo. Each sheet contains 100 dots (10 each of 10 colors).
