Happy Day Stamp and Washi Tape Tip!

Hi Crafty Friends! How did you use your exclusive "lucky" wood veneer from Studio 29 Designs, LCC March Take 10 Kit? I love how thin it is. 

I contemplated using the other similar blue 4x6 card in that upper left spot, but I just have too many photos I wanted to use (typical me). That photo especially needed to stay because that would be the last time we visited that neighborhood establishment (which had been there since our younger times first living in the city) before it was sold to become something else. I'm a little sad about that but excited to see what new place is coming.

I chose to back my "lucky" veneer with a stamped image from one of the stamp sets this month in the shop, called Happy Day.

I stamped the outline image of the branches on white cardstock first, and colored the leaves in with my  Stampin' Up Stamp & Write marker set. Next, I stamped the solid branch image in a little shade of bluish-green over top. Then, I fussy-cut it out to layer behind that wood veneer.

I love that this marker set is double ended (fine point and brush tip). I use them for journaling, stamping, and coloring! If you don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, you need one and I've got one for ya. Mary Talbot is one of my besties: Stampin' Up - Mary Talbot. Another little "something about Mary", she makes really awesome planner stickers that you can find on Etsy. Follow her on IG for the info: 

I used the washi tape from the kit, but I wanted it to be skinnier strips for this application. I have a little tip to share about washi tape that rocked my world the first time I heard it (I don't remember where that was, or I'd give them credit!) Woo Hoo! It peels right off and isn't stuck to your scissors or anything else.

I love little tips like that. What little tip do you have that you wish you knew before?
