Let’s Get Sketchy

My Favorite Things has a great new sketch this week!  Check it out!

I’ve Been Missing You

Today I used Just My Type Stamp/Die-namics set.  It was quick, easy and totally out of my comfort zone.  :)

The typewriter was stamped onto cream cardstock using Brilliance Graphite Black.  I sponged the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink, then adhered the typewriter to two layers of die-cut tablet backing.  The typewriter is raised on foam boosters, and the typing paper was rolled back and forth around a skinny pencil to create the look of having been through the machine.

On the inside, I stamped the XOXO from the set and some flourishes in the lower corner (from Sassy & Sweet).

You can find direct links to DT samples HERE on the MFT blog.  The info is also posted in the MFT Forum in SCS.  (Look for the most recent WSC thread numbered 38.)   And remember, if you upload your card to the SCS gallery using the keyword shown on the sketch, you will have the chance to win up to $20 in MFT money!  One winner is chosen at random each week.

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!

  2. love this! I almost bought this paper yesterday then didn’t – now I regret it!

  3. I love the warm tones of this vintage style card! The gems across that strip look great!

  4. This is so awesome! I have a typewriter stamp set (not this one but a similar one) and have just never gotten around to using it. This is such an inspiration for me to dig it out! Love everything about this card, especially the “XOXO” on the inside. What a great touch. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
