Sneak Peak Stamp Camp – You’re My Type

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.

 TIPS:

  • 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).
