A Tape Trend Trio

 Hello my name is Lalo and I'm a craft hoarder.
Yes it's true, I see pretty things people make with cool products then buy them all up only for it to sit on my craft desk getting all dusty.  
 But not today, I'm making a dent in my "bought but never used" pile by ripping open four packs of "printed paper tape"
 It took a challenge to get me on the "use it" wagon.  These three are for 

Here's how the cards started.  Just tape on a piece of paper and I got all three cards from this one piece.

Card 1
The die-cut window card
 
 Card 2
Using the die-cut card

Card 3
A die-cut card

Gorgeous! Love love this so much!

Yes, I am a craft hoarder and mine started actually from when I lived in Hawaii because, as you can relate, it's hard to find those supplies. I just moved after living there for 9 years, and I find myself "stocking" up still when I see something. I have got to get out of that mind set. Ha!

Love love your work and so happy I found your blog!

What a great set of cards ~ I recognize those tapes as from Target. I'll be casing them! Thanks for the idea!

Wow! Great use of the tapes! I like the second one best! The use of the label to help break up the pattern is genius!

Congratulations on breaking that hoarding habit! LOL Your cards are delightful! I love the combination of tapes. Have you ever made your own from stamping on tissue paper and backing it with scor-tape? I have, and now that is my excuse for NOT buying any-even though the temptation is growing!

This is fantastic!. I am always looking at and loving all the tapes out there but am never sure how to use them! This is a perfect inspiration- thanks!
