Make It Monday #32 & Color Throwdown #162

This week's Make It Monday was to make your own Washi tape.
And here are the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
And with those two together, I made this card for my dad :)

A close up of the Washi tape that I made. I didn't have any score tape, but I did have the really sticky red tape that I used instead. The pattern is from Background Basics Retro.

I received this adorable Tiny Treats birthday set for my birthday in August, and just haven't had a chance to use it yet, I'm so glad I did, today, it turned out so cute!

So I made a little rhyme: "Hip Hippo Hooray, You became a Grandpa Today!" In case you've missed my past blog posts, my sister is scheduled to have a C-section tomorrow morning!

The cardstock is a mixture of PTI and SU. The stamp sets are mentioned above. The ribbon is from the dollar bin at Michaels, and the buttons are PTI. The border punch and punches inside the card are SU. I had a really productive card making weekend....and I can't even show them all to you (which is killing me!) because one is for my Hambo post on Wednesday, and the other two I decided to submit to try to get published! It's the first time I've ever done it and I'm super excited about it. The funny thing is that I made them both for my sister as welcome new baby cards, but I thought they turned out so unique and cute that I thought they could be publishing worthy. And because of that I can't send them to her LOL I should just make a duplicate so I can send it and hang on to the other just in case. This is an exciting new step for me, and I will make SURE to share it with all my blogger friends if I ever make it in :)


  1. Genius! Did you mask with the scalloped border around the tag? WOW! I love it, Jessica! And not just because light blue and brown were my college colors. LOL! And I love your washi tape! It's fantastic!

  2. This is fabulous, Jessica! Your washi tape is wonderful, and the whole design is just so fun. Your dad will love it! And kudos to you for submitting some cards for publication--we'll be seeing your creations in print in no time!
