Preview Week & Blog Candy

WOOO HOOO!!!!  Preview week has begun for Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Celebrations!  Three week of card sets from our fabulous design team!  But before we get started, we have a preview week to let you see what we are all about.

So I’m kicking things off with a card set using Tap, Tap, Tap!


When the new catalog came out last year, I just HAD to have this set!  Guess what?  This is the FIRST time I’ve used it!  EEK!!!  I bet NONE of you do that!

My all time favorite dsp is the Flashback dsp.  I just LOVE it!  The colors are so cool and so are the designs.  So I decided it would be PERFECT paired up with the Tap, Tap, Tap set.

Here’s an individual picture of one of the cards…

    Never thought to combine Flashback dsp with this stamp set. Thanks for the inspiration and tutorial.
