Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team is bringing our last projects from our December box. If you have come over from amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
First and foremost, I want to take the opportunity to wish you a very merry Christmas! I am incredibly thankful for all of you who read this blog and let me be a part of your crafting lives. I consider it a privilege to be able to create and share with you! Thank you!
It is with that in mind that I created this fun set of cards. I know it isn’t a secret that I think Washi Tape is awesome. And the new Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape (available in the Occasions Spring Catalog) is really awesome. Oh, the gold. When the hilarious Bonnie Thurber told us at last summer’s SU Convention that gold was the new silver, I was skeptical. I really should have believed her (because Bonnie is always right)! I get it now! *smile* These cards are made to be be easily created after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I took Whisper White card stock and cut it to 4-7/8″ x 6-1/4″, then scored it at 3-3/8″. This makes the top flap shorter than the bottom and allows the gold polka dot tape to show. I stamped the sentiment from Another Thank You in Gold Encore Ink and embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder, then all I had to do was add the washi tape to the edges of the card. I put one more strip of washi on the bottom of the Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes and repeated to make more.
These have a lovely wow factor because of the gold but you can make a whole stack in no time. Then they are ready to send out to family and friends to let them know how much you appreciated their gifts.
This is our last Artisan hop of 2013. We are taking New Year’s off so that we can spend time with our families. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll all fit in a little crafting time too. I hope that your new year celebrations are safe and happy!
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
