♥ Simon Says...Use Washi Tape! ♥

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This time we want you to use Washi Tape on your cards! Washi Tapes can be used in so many different ways. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!


I punched some Washi tape covered hearts out and made a small banner for my card. To make it, just add strips of Washi to a piece of cardstock and then run it through your die cutter or use a punch. Easy Peasy!


For my card, I used some pretty Washi tapes by Freckled Fawn called Rose, Mint Chevron and Love Graph. The aqua polka dot tape is by Doodlebug and is called Swimming Pool. The Tape Measure "ribbon" is also Washi Tape too. I used one called "Tape Measure" but it is currently out of stock but there is another one that is similar by Freckled Fawn called "Small Tape Measure".


The sweet papers I used are by Bella Carta from the Devoted 6x6 Paper Pad. And the beautiful stamp set I used is an Exclusive by Simon Says Stamp called Just a Love Note! And finally, I also used some Doodlebug Heart Pearls, Twine and Liquid Pearls.

And don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





And finally, I don't want you to think I forgot about my Birthday Giveaway! I will have it up shortly! Just ran into a time crunch and haven't had the time to post it yet! :(

Have a wonderful day!

I haven't played along at SSS in the last few weeks, but I'm hoping to get a washi project done this week to play along. There are several challenges I've been "meaning to enter" but just haven't. You know how that goes! Speaking of which, our sponsor this week is Freckled Fawn!! Woo hoo!
Looking forward to having you with us in February.
