FWF and CASology

So, what am I doing when I should be working on my homework for Monday? I'm creating cards! Here is my latest card. I'm entering it in the Unity FWF and CASology blog challenges:


The theme challenge at CASology is HAPPY. I used this wonderful saying stamp from Unity called "Never Too Much Happy." It was perfect for this challenge.

The ladies over at Scrappin' Mojo and the TV tutorial from Angie Blom got me all excited about washi tape today. I'm by no means an expert stamper, so I created my own digital washi tape by using a piece of double stick paper. I've had this stuff forever... do they even make this anymore?

I cut a piece of the double stick paper, peeled off one side, and stuck on a piece of tissue paper. I trimmed the tissue paper to fit.

I picked some nice digital paper from Hello Sunshine Collection from Jessica Sprague. I clipped some strips of my favorite papers in Photoshop and printed them onto the tissue.

Then I just cut them apart... instant washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a great evening!
