My Favorite Things Stamps...Sweet Greetings!

Hey stampin' friends! I wanted to share this card that I made with the super cute NEW Pure Innocence Pretty Pumpkin Stamp set from the My Favorite Things Stamps August release. I LOVE PI Pretty Pumpkin to bits she is SO cute yet SO versatile...she is definitely not just for Halloween! I made this fun, vibrant birthday card with her....perfect to send some sweet greetings to a special someone!

I made the card with AC Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6X6 paper pad. I coloured the PI Pretty Pumpkin girl with my Copics and paper pieced her out-fit, cut her out and popped her up on the Open Scallop Doily Duo. I stamped one of the several cute and versatile sentiments from the PI Pretty Pumpkin Stamp set on pattern paper cut with the Dog Tag Die-namics and tied with Hemp cord. The flowers are made with the Flower Medly Die-namics and added black brads to the centers of the flowers.

Not sure if you noticed that I made my own tissue paper/Washi Tape for this card. It is FUN and easy!

All you need is some white tissue paper, double-sided tape, stamps and ink. I used several of the little accessory stamps from various MFT Stamp sets...a great way to use the little hearts, flower, stars and fun sentiment stamps that MFT includes in many of their stamp sets. I used the great pattern and accessory stamps in the Lollipop Treat - Halloween, Love and Birthday Stamp set and of course, if you have the fabulous Washi Patterns Stamp set, use it, it's perfect for making your own Washi tape.

I love the semi-transparent feel of the tape using white tissue paper cut and layered over inexpensive double sided tape (I used tape from the dollar store not my good Scor-Tape). Then stamp away, on the tissue paper that is adhered to the double-sided tape, with all the various accessory stamps or border stamps that you have in your stash.

Finally, peel the backing off and adhere to your card/paper, scrapbooking page.

Here is the inside of the card and more "homemade" tissue/Washi Tape, a few more pretty flowers with the Flower Medley Die-namics. I also used the High Rise Lowercase Alphabet Die-namics for the sentiment.

Well, thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card with the sweet NEW Pure Innocence Pretty Pumpkin and  I hope you get a change to make your own tissue tape/Washi tape with all your accessory and border stamps!
