Hello all and HAPPY HUMP DAY! I was in the mood to just do something different so I decided that today would be a “WING IT WEDNESDAY”, being that I just looked at what I first saw and said – CREATE SOMETHING!

Well….there is was, my Washi Tape…the Washi Tape was the victim for the day! I then thought, this is PERFECT as so many of you buy it but then I hear you do not use it…well, we need to do something that. I can remember when Stampin’ Up! first came out with it I thought….”What the heck is this stuff”, I truly thought that it was a fad but it is still around and going strong!

Today’s card is like a “little black dress” – it would work for just about any occasions, all you would need to do is to dress it UP…or dress it DOWN and leave it super simple. Just think of all of the sentiments that are out there!

Because this stamp set, Better Together is NOT a photopolymer, I did use the stamp-a-ma-jig for ease of sentiment placement….remember, this piece of plastic IS your friend….do not toss it across the room!!!! Keep working with it!!! Check out this stamp set it you do not already have it…it is what I call a KEEPER! Love the variety of fonts!


Better Together Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!


Let’s get right to this simple card..a triple stamp of the sentiment with a simple mat…and accent rectangle behind – BAM….the STAGE HAS BEEN SET IN A JIF! Now I ask you, could YOU do this!?!?! In the next 2 pictures you will see how I built the platform for the stage…now get ready…it is really, really hard – pull out a piece of scraps, 4″ X 5 1/4″ and put tape down ~ THAT IS IT!

I know that some people like to cut off the Washi Tape, I like to just roll it to the back and stick it. I would recommend using a super strong adhesive like the Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape as that seems to hold well against the washi tape if you are matting it to a base.

It truly does not get any simpler than this and still even though it is simple, there is a WOW to it. I invite you to think if ANY card you create to be a WOW because it came from YOU…that in itself is super special and I think that many times we forget about giving ourself credit for making our own works of art!

Here is your 411 – Directory Assistance photo for you to hover over and pin away! I know that this DSP has a very modern feel to it but the think I really like about it is that it pairs with Very Vanilla. I am thrilled that Stampin’ Up! has many DSP’s that work with Very Vanilla!
