Babycakes Birthday Card and a New Twist on Washi!

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to share this with you!  I was making a card to show off our amazing Liquid Glass when I ran full speed into a wall.  Oooops.

BUT...I am happy to report that I not only overcame, I blew that wall into smithereens!!!  Oh, yeah!

I discovered a brand new way to use our Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape, which is, by the way, one of my FAVORITE new products this month!  :)

Here is the idea...wrap it around the new Slate Striped Twist Ties!

I just LOVE the new look and color it adds!  What about you?  Suddenly your Twist Ties can be any color washi you have!  :)  They still twist up nicely and hold their shape.

If you linked over from the Damask Divas Blog, then you read about how I used my liquid glass to make faux enamel dots.  They are still drying in this picture, and a bit "foggy" still...

...but here they are completely dry and clear!  LOVE!

Here is a list of the Close to My Heart products I used with links to my website.  Remember, the August Stamp of the Month is FREE this month with a $50 order!  Don't wait until August is over or it will be too late!

  1. That card is a party all by itself :) I love what you did with the liquid glass. Dots are the only liquid glass skill I have.

    1. I would never believe that! We will have to put you to the test, lol...thanks, Shelly! I was totally thinking confetti and streamers! :)

  2. Twist...on Washi tape. I get it!! :) I will be stealing this idea in the near future! Very, very fun card. I agree with Shelly, it's a party all by itself.

  3. Awesome! Love those washi covered ties! It screams "party" for sure! Do you ever sleep, Amie?!

    1. Jane you crack me up! What is this "sleep" you speak of? ;) Thanks so much for coming to see!

    1. You are too kind! The link I found on FB today is waaaaaay have to check it out!!! So many washi ideas!

  5. Love the random dots on the dots (lol) - ads lots of interest! Been dating on this paper only because I have small use of baby paper, but I DO like all the other patterns and colours,

    1. I was drawn to this one only because of the grey at first...and look how it has grown on me! ;) Thanks, Romaine!

  6. Thought I'd let you know I linked through to this post on my blog today. (

    I have a feeling there is going to be a run on twisty ties at local grocery stores everywhere!


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
