Tap Tap Tap Thinking of You & Paper Pumpkin April 2015

Oh, boy!  Have I been having some crafting fun lately!  With Sale-a-Bration over, it was high time for me to mix things up a bit and pull out some "old" but still current favorites from the Annual Catalog, and put them to work with my new Occasions Catalog faves.

When I went to grab for "old" stamp sets, the first one I wanted to play with was Tap Tap Tap.  I distinctly remember this being at the top of my Wish List when the Annual Catalog was released last summer, and I really only made one card with it--this fun Hello My Friend Card.  What a shame!

For this card, I turned to Pinterest for my design inspiration.  It's messy but majorly cute!  

I used the Tap Tap Tap, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Work of Art stamp sets, and the colors are Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Mambo Melon.

I just love the bright colors and how overlapping the colors created oranges and greens that were not in the original color scheme.

That added bit of washi tape in the upper left corner and the staple in the lower right corner are the perfect finishing touches.  Love that!  

But what I think I love the most is that this card can easily be transformed into a masculine card with a few color changes.  Do you agree? 

If you decide to CASE this card, be sure to stamp off before stamping the watercolor swooshes.  Otherwise, the color may be too deep, making the typewriter hard to see.

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  And thankfully, Tap Tap Tap and Work of Art are NOT on the Retiring List.  So glad about that!  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item.

Don't sleep on this Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp's not only intended to be used with the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Project Kit (page 17 in the Occasions Catalog).  It's got a myriad of uses, and I'm so happy that I bought it because I can't get enough of it!

Like I've said before, I could not be happier with my Paper Pumpkin subscription.  It truly brings me joy each month, and my customers tell me all the time how much they are loving their subscriptions too.  And if you don't love it, you can always cancel it or put it on hold.  Really!

Here's what one of my customers had to say about her Paper Pumpkin subscription:

"I'm finding that I look forward to the deliveries so much, I haven't had the time or inspiration that I use[d] to have for stamping (lots to do with losing my Mom who started me in stamping) but since I've started receiving the deliveries I've "found" time and some of my "spark" back - so thank you for introducing this option for me.  I have tried other "kit of the month" clubs but this one is definitely the best!"  ~ Cheryl F.

Until next time, happy crafting!
