What's On Tap Tuesday and 10 Things

Today is the 10th. So what's on tap is my "10 Things on the Tenth" for Shimelle's blog. Check out her blog hop. (I'm number 24...)

I'm going to recount my favorite 10 cards of the first half of 2011. It was tough choice. (We usually publish on our blogs, cards that we like, don't we?) Without further adieu, here they are.

1. Love Potion used a technique that rounds out the card. All those delicious stamps are from Unity.

2. I made More Than Chocolate for my sister. I love the frilly-ness of it. Stamps from My Favorite Things.

3. Welcome Home was made for a niece that moved from one NYC apt to another. I actually individually cut those tiny boxes that are going in and out of the station wagon! And the buildings were made with a Unity background stamp.

4. Happy Retirement uses Stampin Up forest cuties and I had to make a play on words with the deer. *smile*

5. Sweet 16 is glittery pretty with that wonderful My Favorite Things image and that DCWV designer paper.

6. I used Lawn Fawn stamps to create the scene on this tri-shutter card. Cute anniversary card, huh?

7. I had a period where all I wanted to do was make tri-shutter cards. (I even have a tutorial for them on my sidebar.) This one uses Unity stamps, some adorably tiny buttons as accents and wonderful Stampin Up designer paper.

8. Picture Perfect was another Lawn Fawn adventure. That center scene required a lot of masking but the result was worth it. Love the twine banner...

9. Because You're Special squeezes my heart. The Pure Innocence cutie from My Favorite Things is just so sweet and I love how the papers worked out here with the Unity sentiment.

10. Start With Whee was so fun to make. The children come from a set by Stampin Up called Recess. I couldn't help but pop up the little girl so that it actually looks like she's flying off the slide.

Thanks for dropping in. Hope you enjoyed the tour. Have a happy 10th! What's on tap on your table today?

Wow. Each and every one of them are so great. But I must admit, I like the "weee" one the best!

Wow. Those are impressive. I love the sewing one and the love potion is completely adorable.

Completely amazing to see some of these together!!!

I think I'm going to have to say after much debate, that Whee is my fave!! :)
