Colorful, Happy Day

As I was putting away some new washi tape, I realized how cute the packaging was. I knew I could combine it with some great Memory Box products to create something fun and colorful. So, here is what I created:


Pin It

Memory Box Papers: licorice cs and notecard, squash gingham, used white side of misc. retired paper
Memory Box Dies: Virtuoso Music 98356
Memory Box Stamp: Wishing You Combo B1853
Stamp Ink: Archival Ink jet black
Embellishments: Blue Fern Studios Icon Set One painted with gesso and Jenni Bowlin lemon drops dabber paint; Prima Overature C and Soubrette pink/orange flowers; teal flower from Wild Orchid Crafts; Zva Creative white flowers; Golden black gesso; misc. ribbon; misc. packaging; sewing machine

I cut the packaging into strips and layered them onto the white side of a piece of retired Memory Box paper. I then used my sewing machine to sew between the strips of paper and splattered on some black gesso. While that was drying, I stamped the Memory Box Wishing You Combo stamp (B1853) onto a piece of Memory Box squash gingham paper using black ink. I also die cut the Memory Box Virtuoso Music die (98356) onto Memory Box licorice cardstock. I then adhered the music die cut at the bottom of the colored pieces, wrapped some yellow ribbon round the paper, and attached the entire piece to a Memory Box licorice notecard. Lastly, I added some embellishments and the sentiment to finish the card.

I don't know about you but both music and bright colors make me happy so hopefully this card will brighten someone elses day too. Thanks for stopping by!


What a great idea. So many struggle with how to use Washi tape and this is not only a pretty project, it is fast! Love the idea, thank you. xxx Ann Marie
