Bright Blossoms Thanks, PP192

Greetings, Stampers! For those of you who celebrate the holiday, a very Happy Easter to you! I've had lots to do this past week to prepare, so a Clean and Simple challenge at The Paper Players was just what the doctor ordered for me. This week the lovely Nance is hostess, and she is challenging us to use Washi Tape on our Clean and Simple creation. Fun! 

I think I have every Washi Tape that Stampin' Up makes and I am guilty of not using it often enough. Thanks, Nance, for getting my mojo going! I thought the petite patterns in the Gingham Garden Washi Tape would work well with the images in the Bright Blossoms Stamp Set, and combined them with a sentiment from Really Good Greetings.

I used markers to color the blossoms and stem on the stamp. The vase was stamped on a scrap of paper and cut out by hand. I cut out the image with the Extra Large Oval Punch, and the frame outside was made with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. 

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Bright Blossoms, Really Good Greetings
Card Stock: Whisper White
Ink Pads: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight
Markers: Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz
Tools: Extra Large Oval Punch, Big Shot, Designer Frames Embossing Folders
Accessories: Gingham Garden Washi Tape

Thanks for stopping by today and please visit the rest of my design team at The Paper Players!  We hope to see your Washi Tape creations, too! 

Inky Hugs!

Such a darling card, Sandy. This stamp set is perfect for the sweet patterns of the washi. Love your embossed oval too--a perfect CAS washi-tas-tic creation!

Anne Marie Hile said...

Absolutely CAS-tastic, Sandy! I love the pop of patterns from the washi and the embossed frame is such an elegant touch. I love that stamp set and am sad that it is on the retiring list. Have a great day! Hugs! :)
