Take Two Week: Day ONE

One year ago, Emily Leiphart and I decided to do a week of ALL Unity Stamp Company stamps TWO different ways.  I believe we were talking about how we both admired the style of the other and somehow Take Two Week was born.  We had so much fun, we decided to bring the party back!

Welcome to TAKE TWO week!!!  A week full of card inspiration and prizes too.

The sweet and fabulous Angela from Unity Stamp Company has generously donated the stamp prizes for this week.  We have one of each set to give away.  So make sure you leave a comment on both mine and Emily’s blog for a chance to win.

Also, we’ll be giving away 2 of my watermarks this week as well.

Today, we are featuring this super CUTE and FUNNY stamp set.

Heehee, makes you giggle, right?
Often, I have a card come to mind IMMEDIATELY and KNOW I just have to order the stamp.  Such is the case with this itty bitty.  I wanted to recreate the look of an empty toilet paper roll and set about getting it done.  I tried a few different techniques and ended up with tape adhesive and Kleenex.  Hope it isn’t too ‘realistic.’  ha.  Then, I paper pieced the roll together and popped it up on the card.

So here’s a recap of TAKE TWO deets:

  • A new card from Emily and Lisa everyday Monday 19th – Friday 23rd.
  • comment on EACH blog for your chance to win one of the 5 stamp sets or a watermark
  • comments are no longer eligible after Saturday, March 24 at 11:59pm EST.
  • We’ll announce the winners on Monday, March 26, 2012.

Pop on over to Emily’s blog to see what she has with this set today!

  1. Oh, Lisa, I’m excited and honoured to be doing Take Two again with you this year! Thanks for being so awesome! I love your pink toilet paper roll and the bits of tissue idea is so clever and cute!!

  2. Love this card! I love the tape and how you added kleenex gave me a chuckle! Thanks for the explanation on the wordpress and email thing because the comment wasn’t working and I couldn’t get it! I don’t have wordpress but I do have a gravatar and have no clue how to log in!

  3. So glad to see Take Two back this year 🙂 Love your tape and kleenex idea – so creative. Fun card.

  4. I just love this idea – especially since at my house I seem to be the only one who changes the roll…hmmm…a bare roll is a frequent sight 😉

  5. So excited you guys are doing this again as this is how I discovered your blog in the first place. 🙂 Your card cracked me up – it totally looks like the end of a toilet roll. Love it! 🙂

  6. Lisa you really crack me up!!! I just happen to take a quick look at my Google reader before I head out to work today and saw this card. You made me giggle and I REALLY needed that this morning! LOVE IT!!! 🙂

  7. Love how you made the card look like an empty roll!! So creative!! And that stamp is adorable!

  8. Awesome card, Lisa!! Cracks me up and I LOVE it!! So fun to see you doing this again with Emily. Look forward to what’s next… {hugs}

  9. Too funny! The card base is brilliant! I like how you both ended up stamping the little hearts separately (great minds and all that). Pink polka-dot t.p. — very fancy!

  10. I saw Emily’s and now yours!! I am cracking up here! I think my DH can use this card today! Thanks for the smile, Lisa!

  11. you know, this was one of the tiny group of Unity Stamps that I thought “nah, i can pass that one by”, but seriously you have made this so cute i think i have to reconsider!!!

  12. Have come here from Emily’s blog (she actually sent me your way a few weeks ago). So creative and cute! Great work. Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Too funny! Who would have thought that good old Kleenex was a crafting “must-have”—great take on the stamp set. I love your Take Two idea; looking forward to the rest of the week.

  14. This is absolutely perfect Lisa!!! So “stinkin” funny~LOL! I can’t stop laughing 🙂 I can’t wait to see what Emily did with this one, hopping over there now! I’m looking forward to the rest of the week too!

  15. This card just cracks me up! So creative with the paper piecing and the kleenex!! Love this team up with Emily!
