Tap Tap Tap Typing Away

It's time for a sketch at Stampin' Celebration!  I wanted to showcase some NEW stuff and here it is...
Below is featuring a new photopolymer set called What's Your Type?. Do you see it?  The word is RAD!!  Cool, huh?!  The tiny letters are from a rotary stamp called "Alphabet Rotary"....it's HUGE and oh the possibilities!

The colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Early Espresso and a smidge of Rich Razzleberry.  Don't you think the little sequins look like old 45's (aka Records)?

BUT....I FIRST made this card....

It's from a set called TAP TAP TAP.  I won all of these sets at the Stampin' Up! Catalog Reveal Event in Long Beach, CA.  It was so much fun!

After I made this card, I was just like ehhhh....my coloring on the typewriter wasn't my fave, so I made 

Do you see the NEW DSP?  It's the bottom part of the card.  It's called Back to Black and will be available for purchase on June 2nd.  I LOVE it!!

Here is the sketch....JOIN US!!!

Petite Petals, Sweet Essentials Stack

 This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments it's a color challenge.  We want you to use Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar.
A friend asked me for some Thank You Notes for her friend that was recently widowed.  I thought this was a wonderful color combo so I made a stack of 12 cards....here is what I came up with...

I used the Petite Petals Stamp set and coordinating punch.  I bet you can't guess what my favorite stamp set is right now?!  Hahaha!
I also used the Sweet Essentials stamp set for the greeting.  The background is with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

Look at this next photo and I mixed it up a bit and changed out a couple of colors on the flowers....do you see it?

Here is the challenge...JOIN US!!  If nothing else, you MUST SEE the designs from our awesome DT!!
