Stamp Review Crew: Tabs For Everything

Happy February! It's a short, cold, and dark month here, so that calls for MORE crafting, am I right?!

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring a sneaky little stamp set called Tabs For Everything. This set can sneak it's way into just about any creation, and it has stamps that coordinate so very well with so many other sets!
I mean, really. How many critters can you put that crown on? And the birthday cake? Pandas holding cake. Cake on the Happy Birthday thinlit. Hearts, and stars, and a sweet circle. THEN all those adorable and usable words, in different fonts!!

For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Kelly Kent's blog. Kelly is a superstar and I am sure that she came up with some gorgeous stuff!

Mt first project is inspired by that famous quote about pineapples: Be a pineapple- Stand Tall, Wear a Crown, and Be Sweet on the Inside.  That pretty much says it all!

I paired the crown images with Fruit Basket stamp set, which is freaking adorable all by itself! Since both sets are photopolymer, this was super easy to stamp.

There is a vellum Eastern Medallion die cut, and a Gold Foil Tailored Tag punch embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I carried the images to the inside of the card, and added a sentiment from the Fruit Basket stamp set.

Then, I discovered that all of the little images and the single words fit on the bottle labels from Bubble Over!

And there is a solid thumbs up image in Tabs For Everything, and an outline thumbs up image in Bubble Over. So cute! They are the same size, but ever so slightly different, so they don't actually layer together perfectly.

I finally decided to use the Lovely Laurel dies as they were designed to be used. Oh, my! These are awesomely easy to use!! I am telling you, you gotta get these. You get maximum bang for minimal effort.

I couldn't stop at just one! The watercolor layer on both cards features the smooshing technique. Smoosh your inkpad onto a nonporous surface (acetate, acrylic block, craft mat, etc), spritz with water, then smoosh the watercolor paper into the puddles of ink. Dry and repeat until you get the look you are trying to achieve.

All of the images on these labels are from Tabs For Everything.

Another poppin good inside! The sentiment is built with Tabs For Everything also.

That is it for me. And now, Mickey Robert's! This is one hardworking and talented lady!
