Save the Date with Creative Expressions Vintage Typewriter Stamp set
Well, while I've got some internet I thought that I would try to catch up with some of the cards I've been making and been unable to blog! I have been busy crafting honest!
This is my next card using the "Creative Expressions Vintage Typewriter set". As you can see I'm still using up the ink sprayed watercolour paper! I just got the round the corner Martha Stewart stamp and couldn't wait to use it. I have a Tim Holtz mask that is similar and thought that the two would go together well...haven't had time to try this theory out yet though!
For my card I stamped the date stamp in aged mahogany distress ink and heat embossed it.
The rosette was made using seambinding coloured with distress inks and the letters were from the keypad background stamp. I decided to leave the stamp whole and just punch out the letters I needed. The finishing touch was a bit of stickles to give a bit of sparkle.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
"Sparkles Forum - Something that sparkles"
"Stamptacular Sunday - Must use a stamp, Autumnal colour photo inspiration"
"Artistic Stampers - must use a rubber stamp - Autumn Colours"
This week I received my order from Creative Expressions, so I have been playing with my new stamps making more cards....I will be blogging these over the next couple of weeks. I think I need to set up a facebook account as it doesn't look like I'm making anything over on the Creative Expressions facebook page at the moment...need to pin my eldest daughter down to show me what to do. LOL!
