Washi Love.....

Happy Wednesday to you! I have been having some blogger problems so please bare with me. I created a fun, rather funky little card today for The Rubber Cafe!

I first stamped the Heart Strings stamp onto my cardstock and than stamped it again onto some pattern scraps I had in pink hues and cut them out. I than inked them up and gave them a bit of chunky glitter and laid them aside.

Next I stamped the Don't be Wishi Washi set onto some scrap white cardstock in pink and kraft ink and fussy cut them out. I inked them a bit as well. When I was done I had 7 washi tapes cut out. I ran my cardstock through an embossing folder and got to work layering my washi pieces on top of one another randomly, both at the top of my card and the bottom.

For added detail I wrapped a bit of twine around some of the washi pieces and hung pink safety pins with diecut little hearts hanging off. I added my sticker sentiment and a chipboard postage frame to add importance to the sweet heart strings stamp (I just love this stamp). From there I used my Scrap Happy glue to adhere my hearts to the banner and added some cute little jellie dots for detail. My last step was to fold back my top and bottom corners of the card and staple them.

I just love the shabby funky look this has!
