As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I receive a monthly magazine that’s full of creative ideas. In this month’s issue, I saw the typewriter from the “You’re My Type” stamp set available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The more I see this set, the more I fall in love with it. It’s just so dang clever.
“You’re My Type” stamp set offers a bold typewriter stamp that can “roll” vintage or modern. The sentiments are both charming and versatile for many occasions. This is my spin on a card I CASED (copied or inspiration) from another demonstrator named Mary.
- Coverage can be tricky with a large solid stamp like the typewriter. Use a Blender Pen and ink to touch up any areas where ink doesn’t transfer perfectly. Layer a bit at a time as you fill in.
- Each strip of Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper was cut to 1 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.
- I used a Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat to create the large circles. Whisper White diameter 3 1/4″. Riding Hood Red diameter 3 1/2″.
- Tie things up with Island Indigo Baker’s Twine (CONFESSION – I love baker’s twine).
