Happy 1st Birthday - The August PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello Again!!

Thank you for coming by today for the PaperTrey Ink blog hop.  I would love it if you joined my blog while you are here.  I promise you will see a new creative project each day!  

This month, we could choose from some wonderful "fast food" color and sketch combinations.  Check out the picture of the one I selected.

I used Washi tape for my colored strips at the bottom of the card and then used the same Washi tape to cut my number and little letters.  My little secret for that is to cover some white chipboard with the Washi tape first and then die cut it.

To finish the card I stamped "happy" and "birthday"around the large number to form the rest of the sentiment. I just realized I meant to go back and add a bit of bling to the card...but I forgot.  Before I send it out, I will probably add just a few rhinestones and sequins in similar colors.  FUN FUN FUN!

Thanks again for stopping by.  Don't forget, you can play along too.  Just create a card using this month's inspiration and link it up right here. 

I am also linking this to the Less Is More blog challenge to use Washi Tape on a card.  Be sure to click right here to see the challenge and maybe add a card of your own.

I'll be back tomorrow with another project to share with you - this time a digital layout.

See you then.

  3. Susie, this is a Washi masterpiece! I adore it! Hey, Less is More is having a Washi challenge; you should edit your post and enter your card - it's a winner in my book!

    (I tried to follow your blog, but I don't do Google+ or via FB. I follow using the Blogger follow gadget which I don't see on your sidebar. I subscribed, though, so I won't miss any of your posts!)
