Hi stampers! Happy Wednesday! How can the week be half over yet? And how did I ever have time for my job? LOL! Seriously, I was worried about the days dragging after quitting my job (and I'm sure that some of them will) but the past few days have been busy busy! Of course it helps that Monday I had to get the grocery shopping done and kind of clean up around here and get things in order after the wedding and being out of town and then yesterday was all sorts of crazy with my mom being in town on a whim (if you call getting a filling that fell out at my friends wedding a whim, lol) and Jon having a flat tire in the morning! Geesh! So by the time I ran around with my mom which was totally nice to be able to do that on the fly and got Jon's tire fixed I ran out of time and energy to stamp :-)
Geesh! Good thing I'm not working now...Jon said the same thing last night, hahaha! I will be glad when this week is over though because for my first two evenings of being a "housewife" I've had to eat dinner alone! :( There is a big farm show here this week so Jon's been working a TON!!! We've kind of traded places, haha!
Anyway let's have some fun with washi tape today!! I wasn't as super excited about the tape as some people I know when SU came out with it but I have to say it's pretty fun stuff! Did you know that it's repositionable????? To me, that's pretty cool since I can't seem to get things to line up straight all the time. Don't like what you did? You can carefully unstick it and try again! You can also make super simple but super cute cards like these two which were inspired by my friend and convention roomie, Marla!
I did this one first for Christmas (and I totally love it):
Stamps: Wishing you
Paper: Whisper white, crumb cake, real red
Ink: Real red, old olive
Accessories: Decorative label and extra-large oval punches, linen thread, season of style wash tape
I love the layering of those two punches. I did clip off the top and bottom little points otherwise they stick out a bit funky. And it's so cute you don't notice I used real red instead of cherry cobbler which is the actual color of the washi tape :-)
And then I thought a Halloween one would be cute too!
Stamps: Halloween hello
Paper: Very vanilla, basic gray, pumpkin pie
Ink: Basic gray
Accessories: Decorative label and extra-large oval punches, linen thread, brights candy dots, witches brew washi tape
This one looked a little naked so I added the candy dots! Done!
These cards would look great with any combination of punches used that would fit your sentiment! To order some of this fabulous washi tape just click the shop 24/7 button over to the right!!!!! And you too can have a Washi Wednesday!
