Tap-Tap-Tap for WWYS

Have you heard? WWYS is growing! You'll need to check it out! 

This week we are featuring the Tap Tap Tap Set. Do you own it? If so I hope you will play along. If you don't own it but are on the fence about ordering it....well look at all the different ideas we are providing you!

I mixed it up a bit. I wanted  to concentrate on this lovely old typewriter. Just added a splash of red and did it on Very Vanilla to get this old timey effect.
The background uses Timeless Textures and Gorgeous Grunge. 
They are stamped in Smoky Slate and Real Red.  
I colored the typewriter with an aqua painter and my pads for this effect. 
Hope you like it. 

Can you see the detail?

I hope you take a run over to What Will You Stamp and either play along or just say "hello"....we love hearing from you. 

If I can help you with any of your stamping needs you know I'm here to help. I love doing that.

Balloon Celebrations for Totally Techniques using a Stencil

Hi Everyone!

Today's technique is using a Stencil. I love out Stencils that Stampin' Up! makes...have you seen them. They are really FAB!
So I've shown the mask as a soft backdrop for my Balloons. Hope you like it.
So my card base is Watercolor Paper....I know extravagant but I love the weight of it and it makes it really special. It's followed by a mat of Mint Macaron and followed by my Stenciled Mat
Love my Watercolor's just makes things so much more. 
Here are the Dots and Stripes Stencils that we sell. These come paired together. It's the bestest deal in town. I promise. lol

Look at the backdrop....I laid my stencil on top of my Watercolor Mat and spritzed it with a combo alcohol and about 10-12 drops of Mint Macaron re-inker and mixed it in one of our Spritzer bottles and just spritzed a few times. I'm always delightfully surprised as to what just a little spritz can do to add character to any card. Try's fabulous!
Notice my sweet balloons from the Balloon Celebration Set? One of my all time fav' easy and fun and has a punch to go with it to cut those lovelies out for you. Sweet!
They are done in Mint Macaron stamped off for the balloon and then full strength for the little speckles that go on top. the pink is Melon Mambo and I did the same for that. The Black Balloon is just punch black card stock to tie things together. 
Bet your wondering about the Melon Mambo Bakers Twine....hehe
Well I actually made my bow and used white Bakers Twine...and it just didn't pop enough so out came another Spritzer and I mixed up some Melon Mambo and spritzed my little bow.....Love it!!!

The Sentiment is White Embossed on a strip pf Black Card Stock and just taped on to the card mat. I added a few diamonds... to jazz it up a bit. 
Hope you like it.

Endless Birthday Wishes for WWYS

Hi Everyone and welcome back to our weekly WWYS Challenge. If you'd like to play along please just head on over to the WWYS Blog and give it a try. We'd love to have your share your card with is using this fun set.

So the premise is that anyone can play but you have to use the stamp set of the week. 
How fun is that? 

Here is my cards using Endless Birthday Wishes.

For my card I started with a White Card Base followed by a Black Mat. I then did a white mat and glued strips of Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo onto the front. 
I think decided I would cut a circle out using my Circle Framelits so I would have a home with a black Background peeking through. I stamped the cute little cake on white and cut out with the next smallest circle so I could pop it up. I colored with Markers using the same colors as the papers to tie it in.  My Little Birthday Greeting I did on Black Cardstock and white embossed the words and cut them into cute little strips. I then attached with glue dots randomly. Then I sprinkled in a few colored Diamonds just for fun. Hope you like it!

Rose Wonder for WWYS

Hi Everyone! 
I am finally breaking out this Fabulous Stamp Set that I have not had time to play with. Yay! Isn't it Beautiful? It has a Framelit that goes with it as well. Sweet!

So I have a little funny to tell you.....this Rose started out Yellow....what!!!
Yes it did....I really wanted a Yellow Rose....well it needed something, maybe just a splash of color added to that yellow rose. Well I got carried away and added some Melon Mambo to it and it came out kind of Neon Orange! Yikes I couldn't have that for a Sympathy Card. I needed to fix it so I blended some Cherry Cobbler with some Melon Mambo (re-inkers) and painted with my Aqua Painters right over it. Shaded it a bit and this is the end result. My Yellow Rose gone Neon to a very pretty share of Rosy Red I guess. 
Moral of the's paper....there are not mistakes....just some opportunities to play a bit and see what happens. lol

My Multi Color Rose

Manly May for Stampers Dozen

Hi Everyone,
Sometimes doing Many Cards is difficult for me. This month's challenge for the Stampers Dozen is Many May......and here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

I decided to use an old Stamp Set "The Open Sea" which is one of my fav's 
I combined it with something new being the "Sunburst Thinlit Die" 
I think it gave it a striking appearance. Don't you?

So I stamped the World Image in Black and then edged it in Gold Embossing Powder. Just to make it Pop off the card a bit. 
I also added the Sea Chart on the background mat and a few specks from Gorgeous Grunge to add a bit more gold. 
The Sentiment is Gold Embossed too and I used the greeting from "Greatest Greetings. 
*Note I used Gold Foil Paper and some Gold thread to finish it off. 

Product List for this Card
So we'll have a whole variety of Manly Cards on this hop so make sure to visit the blogs and see
Father's Day is just around the corner and you might want some ideas for those special men in your life. 

Next Blog is Janet. Hope you will check it out. She's always got something fabulous!

Thanks for stopping in today. I love hearing from you so leave a comment if you will and if I can help with any of your stamping needs just let me know. 

See you soon!
