Hi there, stampers! Quick project for you on the blog today, a peek-a-boo washi tape card featuring the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape, Suite Sayings stamps and the Elegant Butterfly punch! Now, I can’t take credit for this idea; my wonderful upline Jennifer recently posted a similar card and I had to copy it to share with you!
Start by adding your greeting to the bottom of the panel. In this case, I used Night of Navy ink to ink the bottom of the greeting, wiping off any ink that got on the top portion. You could use a small bit of washi tape to mask off the portion of the stamp that you don’t want inked. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the greeting and stamped. A quick swipe of the Embossing Buddy and you’re ready to stamp the rest of the greeting. Using the same method, I inked the top of the stamp in Versamark and then stamped the remainder of the greeting, positioning it with the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
A quick dusting of Copper Emboss Powder over the versamark greeting and I’m ready to heat set this! Copper embossing powder is absolutely gorgeous! Where has this product been all my life!
Next, I added the washi tape to the whisper white panel using the grids on my Stampin’ Trimmer to help me align the tape straight. You can use anything that has grids–I used my trimmer because the washi tape released really easily from it!
From there, I used my big shot with the magnetic platform to cut a scalloped square from the Copper Foil Sheet using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies collection. I actually cut this square from the matte that I will mount the stamped panel onto! This is a great way to stretch your products!
Next, I die cut a smaller straight edge square from whisper white cardstock out of the same framelits collection. I used some liquid glue to adhere this to the scalloped edge die cut and let it dry for a few minutes.
The tricky part was that I had to line up the die cuts inside of the punch. To do this, I flipped the punch on it’s edge and inserted the die cut so I could see approximately where the punch would go through the cardstock. This allowed me to position the paper in roughly the correct position to make the punch from the die cut. Last, I slapped some stampin’ dimensionals onto the die cut and put it over the washi tape.
Of course this project wouldn’t be complete without a little bling, so I added some rhinestones to the top of the card for a bit of pop!

Updates from the homestead
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged! If you’ve been following me on Intagram or my Facebook page, you may have seen what I’ve been up to! Since I last wrote, we’ve moved from Seattle to Austin, Texas! We’ve purchased our first home and I’m super excited to finally be an owner! Feels so good to cross that one off the bucket list!
Some other things to note, I’ve also started offering local classes in Round Rock. We will meet 3-4 times per month to make some cool stuff. Check out the class listing and join our group to be notified when new classes are on the calendar!
Last, I’m still in the process of unpacking, so videos probably won’t happen until we’re settled. My wonderful husband is in the process of building me a craft room but there’s still a bit of work to be done before I can setup shop in there! For now, I’m crafting out of a spare bedroom with a folding table and my computer desk. It’s cramped for now, but I know it’ll be so much better once my room is finished! Here’s a shot from a few weeks ago:
