DAY ELEVEN: At some point, I’m going to have to switch from spelling out the number and will type the digits! Welcome to Day Eleven of blogging daily to catch up a little on cards I’ve made and not shared online.

This was my first time using washi tape and the tape I used is from Queen and Company. Washi tape feels like masking tape and it comes in lots of patterns and colors, making it easy to pull together a quick and colorful card.

I think the patterned paper and stamp are from Stampin’ Up! and the leather-looking flower embellishment is from American Crafts. I used one of my Sponge Daubers to apply pink ink to the card from my Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad. Then, I tore off some washi tape pieces and applied them to the card horizontally.

I keep my washi tape in a small box that checks once came in, but it’s overflowing. Here is a cool washi tape dispenser that holds up to 30 rolls! I know many washi tape users are self-described hoarders but I definitely have under 30 because I’m really picky about the look of the washi tape I buy. Maybe Santa will track this down for me and put it under the tree. 😉

Thanks for reading my blog post!
