CLASS NOTES: Loves Rubberstamps

Hi there!!
There is a new challenge up at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog today!!!
It's probably your favorite kind!!! 
There are prizes to be won and fun to be had, so don't forget to pop over and link up your latest creations!!  
I can't wait to see what you make and I will be commenting on all of the cards of my bloggy friends!!! 

For my card today, I used this awesome sketch by Karen from the Sweet Sunday Sketch!!
Thanks, Karen for continuing to inspire us week after week!!!  I love your sketches and this was no exception!! 
Yesterday's card was for my older daughter's teacher... today's card is for my younger daughter's.

I used my fave colors and all of my fave things!!!
I have to say, I am completely crazy IN LOVE with the 
washi tape stamps and die-namics from My Favorite Things!! 
You can use your own card stock to create your own washi strips... 
or you can stamps some designs, or you can do what I did w/ the coral.
I placed some coral washi over card stock and then used the die-namics to cut it out. 
That way it wasn't transparent & it looked a lot nicer with the sketch!!

Here are the products that I used:

Here's the sketch that I used:

  19. Adorable! Love how you used the washi tape as an accent--and great idea to put it on a cardstock background, then die cut it so it won't be as transparent.
