Glitter Washi Tape!!!


Halloween will be here before we know it!  I love the colors, costumes, and handing out candy to the trick and treaters and I am so pleased about Stampin’ Up! bringing back washi tape. Glitter Washi Tape is found on page 57( at the top of the page, #159973) in the July-December Mini Catalog. It’s been a while since we have had this product and I wanted to show you a cute card using this beautiful glittery washi tape.

· Take a small piece of 3x3 thick basic white card stock.

· Add the glitter washi tape to the cardstock at an angle. I use my silicone craft pad to help me out ~ you know that I love that pad!

· Once you finish taping your cardstock, cut off all the overhang of washi tape.

Washi 4 (2)· Put the covered basic white into the Witch Hat Builder Punch. (159856). Punch out the hat.  I used the dies on page 56 for the other images.

Start August with a Smile............

She learned to stamp on Monday
Her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner,
So we went out to dine.
She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
She says they are a must.
They really were quite lovely
But she forgot to dust.
On Wednesday it was birthday cards
She says that chalking's fun.
Shading, blending, and watercoloring --
But the laundry wasn't done.
Her card swap was on Thursday
Using green and blue and red;
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed!
It was shaker cards on Friday
Using techniques she just adores,
But she never seemed to notice
The crumbs on all the floors.
I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
My wife can stamp the hours away;
The house will still be neat.
Well, it's already Sunday,
And my forehead's feeling damp.
I cursed, I raved, and I ranted --
The MAID has learned to stamp!

Stampin' Up!

IMG_8397 This is a post card that I got when I was at Stampin' Up's Headquarters several months ago.  I thought you might want to see what the building looks like.  It is in Riverton, UT ~ just outside of Salt Lake City.  Considering that Shelli and her sister started out in their living rooms thirty some years ago it is quite an accomplishment.


You can see both of these post cards on page 2 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  Shelli said it best ~ 'Stampin' Up! is a wonderful way to bring creativity and friendship together.'
