Crazy Crafters Stampin' Up! Retired Product Blog Hop

Thank you for joining The Crazy Crafters team for our monthly blog hop.  It is my pleasure to host the 2nd April Blog Hop featuring Retired Products.  It was so hard to decide which of the retired products I will miss the most because there are quite a few favourites in the retired list, but I decided on Designer Washi Tape.

This card design was inspired by one of my fellow crazy crafters, Petra Taylor and was very popular during my March Card Class.   

Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape

To create this effect, firstly put a few strips of Washi Tape on cardstock.  Then choose a thinlit, like the Butterflies Thinlits Dies and run through the big shot.  Behind the centre of the butterfly, I adhered some glue dots and attached to cardstock in co-ordinating colour.  Curl the edges of the butterfly to make it look like the butterfly is fluttering.

Beach House Designer Washi Tape

The same effect can be created using other Big Shot Dies, like the Mustache Thinlit Die, which is also on the Retired List.

Epic Day Designer Washi Tape

The Designer Washi Tape & the Mustache Thinlit Die are on the Retired List at 50% off, but are only available until stocks last. 

Don't delay, click on the images below to purchase these and other Retired Products from my 24/7 Online Store.  Once they are gone, they are gone for good.
