Ready for another Sneak Peek? I can tell you right now that the new Triple Banner Punch will be one of my favorite new tools whether it is a masculine card or not. I used this punch to notch the ends of these banners. You can make your banners any length you want, but your banner should be cut to one of 3 widths. You can watch the video below to see exactly how this cool punch will work.

Just cut your paper to one of the above widths and slip the paper into the punch to get a perfectly notched end. You can make your paper any length you want or even notch both ends to have a notched ends on both sides.

 You can make an easy card with a Washi Tape background! Use the Feel Goods and Gorgeous Grunge stamps sets with the Beach House Washi Tape to make this clean and simple card.  There are a few of the dimensionals under the sentiment to pop it up from the background. Many of the products I used today are on the retirement list and even discounted so be sure to check that list out today.

Feel Goods With Washi Tape

To make this background all I did was stamp the splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set a few times and then placed the Washi Tape over the stamping. So easy! The sentiment was stamped on to Whisper White card stock and then cut out with a circle die. So quick!

The last little embellishment are the Real Red candy dots set to the side of the sentiment. Now you have a fun card ready to send off without a lot of extra bulk. Don’t forget about those retiring stamps and accessories you can find by clicking here.
