new york, new york (so good they named it TWICE!)

hi guys, it's my day on the eyelet outlet blog again, and i've got a pair of fun NYC themed items to show off! yes, i know, you would think that living in new jersey, and spending a fair amount of time manhattan, that at some point i'd stop being excited about new york themed art supplies... but it hasn't happened yet, lol! my latest obsession? eyelet outlet's new york city washi tape, which I've used as the sentiment on this city-centric card:

can you spot the other EO goodies on this card? yep, there's an uber-cool taxi cab brad and it's sitting on a strip of road washi. anything else? howsabout the cloud washi, glitter black and glitter silver tapes?! because there are soooooo many cool uses for tape, and one of my favorites is to apply it neatly in strips to scraps of cardstock and make custom patterned papers! in this case i've used the clouds as a background and the two glitter tapes have been diecut into streets full of buildings. fun, right? and really... except for the "new york" banner this idea works for ANY city... 

i realize that not everyone is quite as "maximalist" in design as I am, so here's a more pared down version of the same idea. i've teamed the taxi cab brad and road tape again... (well, let's face it, they are perfect together!) ...and added a little bit of music note washi, too. 

this time i've stamped the cityscape and used a heart brad to visualize one of my all-time favorite sentiments. 

because yes, I do... and always will... *love* new york! ♥♥♥


  1. What a fun card, love the use of washi tape and brads, EO has the coolest brads. Fabulous job.

  2. Love both your card and the tag! Fabulous scene.
