Welcome to Day 4 of May previews with My Favorite Things! Today we’re sharing samples of Inspired By “Up, Up & Away,” Claire Keay “You Had Me at Woof” and “Just My Type” die and stamp set.
a little message for you
This is a bit of a different style for me so I struggled a bit as to what to do with this very cool typewriter from “Just My Type.”
I die-cut the typewriter from cream cardstock and the note paper from a lightly patterned paper. I popped up the typewriter, then bent the paper around a thin rod. I curved the middle down and the upper ends up so it’s a bit wavy. As a finishing touch, I clipped a very tiny Tim Holtz mini-paper clip to the upper right corner.
Along the bottom (beneath the trim and buttons), I used our new Scallop Ribbon Die-namics.
On the inside I stamped my little message, and die-cut one strip of the Scallop Ribbon, cutting it in half and placing each piece along the top and bottom edges of the yellow dotted paper.
Here’s the whole “Just My Type” set with die. Very cool, yes? (I LOVE the “don’t make me use ALL CAPS…” lol. My fave. (Next time…)
