Sweet 'n Sassy December Blog Hop Day 2: Typewriter Text Background‏

SNSS Typewriter

  • Includes 1 background stamp
  • Measures approximately 3.75" x 3.75"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp - $11

    I created 2 CAS cards using this set, I think this set is going to be used a lot!!
    Drop me a line: Super clean card, I was dying to add stitches and bling, LOL. I like it this way.
    • Make card base from Ivory Cardstock. A2 size.
    • Cut a panel from White Cardstock (4" x 5.25"), stamp background in Coffee Archival Ink.
    • Start sponging piece with Antique Linen, Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
    • Cut a piece of Ivory Cardstock, stamp sentiment in Memento Love Letter Ink. Die-cut the ink well/ink pen from white cardstock and stamp coordinated image in Sepia Archival Ink from Keep in Touch stamps and die set
    • Add a back red piece to panel and add it to card front.
    XOXO: I have to confess this card started as a completely different project. I heat embossed the background image, but some edges didn't turn out the way I wanted, so I did plan "B"

    • Make card base from Pink Cardstock. A2.
    • Stamp background using Grunge Elements and pink ink.
    • Add a thin piece of red cardstock.
    • Heat emboss background image in Versamark Ink, die-cut image using Heart dies. Sponge hearts with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks.
    • Stamp XOXO from Bottom of my Heart set in Coffee and Sepia Archival inks.
    • Add clear rhinestones.
