"Tape It Up" @ Paper Issues & 100th Post Giveaway Winners...

Paper Issues has issued the newest theme, "Tape It Up" any how, any way. It can be washi, dymo, packing, fabric, masking, scotch...it can even be duct tape...if you can dream it, we want to see it!

For my "Tape It Up" project, I would like to share a card I made for our great niece's 1st Birthday. The fabric tape is from Making Memories I have had in my stash for a long time. I used it for the binding at the top of my card as well as to create the "happy birthday to you" flags. In addition, I used a Quickuts letterpress plate for the embossing on the frosting. The clear pokkadot acrylic is from Creative Imaginations. The alphas are from Studio Calico's Countryside Stickers and some sweet American Crafts Thickers. Other supplies used were some kraft & aqua cardstock & hot pink sewing pins.

Now onto to the good stuff....since I was late in announcing the winner of the mushrooms, and you all are such supportive friends...I have decided to giveaway TWO of them! :)

The 2 lucky ladies, courtesy of my sons drawing them out of a hat are....Lindsi & Stephanie!

Even though I don't have mushrooms to send to all of you, I do have some exciting news to share. Cassie, our fearless leader at Paper Issues has assigned the design team members discount codes that you all can use all the time for your scrapbooking needs! Isn't that fabulous! Be sure to check out the Paper Issues Shop at Etsy and receive a 20% DISCOUNT every time you use the discount code: CURLYQ

As always, I thank you all for continuing to encourage me in my artistic endeavors!

Awww, your birthday card is SO sweet, Amy! Love the clear acrylic base and love that cupcake, and way to rock the fabric tape. It works perfectly to bind the top of the card, and what adorable flags. I need to try that trick myself. :)
