Tap Tap Tap | WWYS#66

Happy Monday! It's What Will You Stamp? time, this weeks featured set is Tap Tap Tap. Today's post is a little sad as the featured set is due for retirement in a couple of days, there is still time to grab it, so lets say farewell in style!


I've created cards in 2 different styles. My first card has a rustic, vintage feel to it, the second features the same stamped image, but has clean lines creating a more modern feel.

The first thing that came to mind when seeing this set was the old typewritter - I remember seeing these when I when to my Dad's work as a young child, and I do recall learning to type at school on a updated version (oh no showing my age!) unlike the computer keyboards we use now.


I coloured the typewriter using Crumb Cake and an Aqua Painter, leaving the "paper" with the sentiment untouched.  To create an aged feel I sponged the edges of card stock, then I curled with the bone folder to give a bit of a "dog eared" appearance, below is a different view.


I also sponged the edges for a layer in the inside of the card to continue the vintage feel- you can just see the edge of the layer in the above photo.  I used a combination of Pool Party and Mint Macaron, the cardstock layer is Mint Macaron, and the sponging is Pool Party


I opted for clean lines on the 2nd card, the typewriter is left untouched, just mounted on Basic Black card stock.  I've used Shine On Speciality Designer Series Paper, oh my! I am so wishing I had got my hands on this sooner, it is amazing DSP.

 

Can you see the shine on the alphabet keys? I recalled Carolina Evans mentioning you can achieve a very similar look to Crystal Effects by using your Fine-Tip Glue Pen - it worked a treat!  Thanks Carolina :) 

I gave the new Layering Squares Framelits a workout with these cards too - a combination of straight and scalloped edged squares.  I didn't want to use the scallops in the above so trimmed the black layer on 2 edges to obtain the fine line to match.

  1. Love both your cards Sue, and the idea to use the fine-tip glue pen to add dimension to the typewriter "keys" - absolutely inspired!! xoxo

  2. Sue, I love both of these cards but color combo on the vintage one totally speaks to me. I am so sad to see this set go. What Gail said is totally correct, INSPIRED use of the glue pen for the typewriter keys. I am going to do this the next time I use this set.

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!



The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:


For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.



This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.




Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).
