Global Design Project 002 - Tap Tap Tap

It's time to play along with the Global Design Project's weekly Challenge. Firstly I want to say how incredible it was to see 74 of you play along with our FIRST challenge last week! I am so amazed and excited that we had such a great start. We would love that number to keep growing so please play along with us this week. This is our sketch challenge that we have as inspiration - 


Here is the project that I came up with this week - 


I realised that I haven't got to play with this Tap Tap Tap stamp set so it was great to set myself another challenge and use a stamp set that hasn't been inked as yet.


I enjoyed using the new Holiday Catalogue Curvy Corner Trio Punch on the edges found on page 18 of the catalogue. I feel it gives the card an Art Deco look - which is perfect with the typewriter. And the Writing Notes Background stamp gives the look that it was just meant to be.


I also don't remember ever using this colour combination but I think it fits with the whole look of the card. Too much grey and black and it would have become dull and boring. The Rose Red is that POP of colour without going too bright.

So please head over to the Global Design Project and be inspired and we would love you to play along with us.

Supplies Used:



For those that live in Australia - you can go shopping for all of your supplies to make this card. Just click on the pictures above to add them to your shopping cart in my online store.

    1. oooo I am going to look that celebrity up! It sounds like he likes it burned! Louise may agree with you on that one. She likes my cards to be either burned, flushed or buried...

  11. Kylie, this card rocks! So much fun with the notepaper background and the way you cut out the "tap, tap, tap." They add so much life to the card. Love it.
