Tap Tap Tap Hello Card

My card for this week’s WWYS Challenge Blog featuring the Tap Tap Tap Stamp Set (currently on the Retiring List ending 31 May 2016) highlights one of the new In Colours, Peekaboo Peach. I still don’t have a firm favourite yet – I love them all!  How about you?  We’d love it if you’d play along with us this week, and check out the wonderful inspiration provided by the other Design Team members.  Here’s an image of the stamp set we’re using this week.

And here’s my card:


Tap Tap Tap Card-1

 

The design is pretty simple, with a watercolour wash in Peekaboo Peach and Crumb Cake along with some watercolouring/shading on the typewriter.  I ruffled the ruched ribbon (say that 10 times fast!) to add a little somethin’ somethin’ and I think it looks so cute.

I’m really excited for the release of the new catalogue – only two more sleeps!  Woot! Woot!  You can start ordering here after 3am on June 1st.

If you need a catalogue, you can send me a request and I’ll get one out to you pronto! (Australian residents only)

Endless Birthday Wishes Card for WWYS Challenge #65

I love a card that can be used for more than one occasion, and my card for this week’s WWYS Challenge, featuring the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set fits the bill!  Yes, it does have a cake on it, but who’s to say it’s not a congratulations cake or a celebration cake for another special occasion?  Anyhow, you can see what the other Design Team members have created by clicking on the WWYS image below.  Want to join us and have a little fun?  You have until Sunday, May 22 at 10am to submit your entry.

#65 Endless Birthday Wishes

I decided to break out a few of the new In Colours for this week’s card – Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo.


Endless Birthday Wishes Card-1

I kept it pretty simple and just used jaunty angles for interest as well as a bit of embossing on the Emerald Envy panel (with the Decorative Dots folder – retiring May 31 – buy it in my online store for only $7.80 while stocks last).

This stamp set has loads of sentiments and you can put them together to customise your card.  I chose “it’s all about you” which is what makes this card multi-purpose.  I stamped all the sentiments in Dapper Denim ink (love it!), and watercoloured the cake with Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky and Crushed Curry.  The dots in the background http://laparkan.com/buy-tadalafil/ were stamped in Soft Sky and mimic the embossed dots.

Going Global Card for WWYS Challenge #63

It’s Monday, and that means it’s WWYS Challenge time!  This week we’re using the Going Global Stamp Set.  Click on the image below to see all the great inspiration from the design team and to join in the fun!

#63 Going GlobalDo you ever look at a stamp set and think “I don’t know where to start”?  That’s what happened to me with this one.  Maybe it’s because all the cards I’ve seen that use this set use muted or masculine colours.  I wanted to do something different, so I started with the idea of doing a twilight sky …


Going Global Card-1

By the time I’d finished I had used seven, yes SEVEN different ink colours!  Well, it is my first attempt at a scene with this much sponging, so I just kept adding and blending.  Lol!  I used Shimmery White cardstock as it’s better to sponge on and won’t pill like normal Whisper White cardstock.

To add detail to the scene I used my Basic Black and Basic Grey markers to draw some grass, and some white Stazon ink to add stars using a paint brush and flicking (messy but effective).

I white heat embossed the constellation image onto the background, and the sentiment (which I love!) onto a scrap of Basic Black cardstock, then punched it out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I punched another circle in Sweet Sugarplum cardstock (a luscious colour from the new In Colours coming out in the new Catalogue), and offset layered it under the black circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This panel was then adhered to a thick Whisper White base using more dimensionals.
