Thinking of You Card; Tap! Tap! Tap! set by Stampin’ Up!

1 crafts 2015-01-07 009

It’s true! ¬†I have been thinking of you. ūüôā

Today’s project shows another take on the stamp set that I showed you last week.¬†The set is called Tap! Tap! Tap! and it’s so versatile with the different sayings that you can use. The card came together very quickly after I colored the typewriter with my favorite Blendabilities.

I started with a piece of Real Red cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. I then stamped the tap, tap, tap wording onto a piece of Sweet Taffy DSP that measured 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached that to the front of my card base. I stamped the typewriter image onto Whisper White cardstock with Black Memento Ink and colored that in with Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, and Smoky Slate Blendabilities. Next, I stamped the “thinking of you” image onto my “paper” that was coming out of the typewriter and punched it out with the 2 1/2″ circle punch. After attaching my circle image onto the card with dimensionals I colored 5 rhinestones with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities and attached those¬†randomly to the card front. To finish off¬†the card I cut a piece of the same DSP to 4″ x 5 1/4″ (the paper is gradient and the top is a much lighter shade of the yellow so, I used the lightest part–perfect to write a¬†message on) and attached it to the inside!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. I have created one more with the Tap! Tap! Tap! set that I will come¬†back to show you. ūüôā ¬†Today I am¬†eagerly waiting for that man that drives the¬†BIG BROWN TRUCK–he’s bringing me a Sale-A-Bration stamp set¬†AND a couple of NEW things from the Occasions Catalog! I can not wait to play!!

I have placed my order and now I am running out to finish up my non-stamping Christmas shopping today! How are you holding up? Have you finished? Half way finished? Not even started? Luckily, I am getting VERY close to finishing! Whew. When my husband left for work this morning he told me to get finished today because he can not handle hearing me talk about what else I need to buy and who gets what. I’ve frazzled him. LOL

Did you see yesterday’s Merry Monday video? Can you believe there is only ONE more Monday before Christmas??? Ahhh! I can not believe it. I have to come up with one more idea to share. Any special requests out there? If so, leave me a comment and I just might accommodate your requests…we shall see!

Have a great day everyone!


Thank You’s for November

If you placed an order with me in November you should have received your Thank You note from me this week.  If you have not received it yet I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek!

I started with the card below and decided it needed just a bit more detail.  So, I ran the stamped white piece through the Big Shot with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  It added some more texture which is just what it needed. Remember, if you place an order with me I will mail you a handstamped (by me) card the first week of the following month.  Now is the time to get your order placed!  In case you missed the news that was announced, there is a End of Year Closeout Sale going on now.  Visit this page to view all of the SALE items!  Get TONS of stuff up to 80% off.
