Fall In Love With Washi Tape

Washi Tape is such a hot trend right now and so, so "useable".  You are gonna fall in love with it - if you're not already.  The versatility of this cool tool makes it a great value!

Take this card, for example:
What a bright and cheery card!  The Washi Tape (Epic Day This and That - #131269; Season of Style - 132155 and Gingham Garden - 129314) was simply "striped" down the center of the Whisper White card stock (#100730).  The Melon Mambo (#115320) card base was a great stretch for me because it's a color I rarely use.  
Strips of Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Old Olive (#100702) and Daffodil Delight (#126944) were banner cut using the 1" Square Punch (#124094) and sponged around the edges using Melon Mambo (#126948), Old Olive (#126953) and Basic Gray (#126981) inks using the Stampin' Sponges (#101610).

The Sentiments are from the Fabulous Phrases (#128577 - wood; #120501 - clear) stamp set and stamped with Basic Gray.  The Many Thanks large sentiment on the card is stamped in Old Olive from the Harvest of Thanks(#131736 - wood; (#131739 - clear) stamp set - whoa!  Love it!!! - and run through the Big Shot (#113430) using the Apothecary Accents Framelits (#127003).  

To finish this little beauty, Candy Dots (#130934) from the Neutrals collection was used in a set of three.  Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and SNAIL adhesive (#104332) were the only adhesives used.

You know, it's so fun to play along with the RetroSketches challenge.  What an adaptable layout.  I can see using this again and again.
