This Month’s Stamp of the Month is S1504 Typed Note. a set of 19 stamps, 17 of them cute little sentiments that fit in the typewriter paper. Typed Note is available only during April for $27 or for just $5 with a purchase of $75.
I think the typewriter image lends itself well to male cards so I made this card for a special friend who has really helped me out this last month. I combined the stamp of the month with Juniper card stock and Jackson Picture My Life cards, from the brand new Seasonal Inspirations 2 catalogue which just launched today. Place an order online or email me to get a free copy of this idea book .
I love that the Jackson PML cards are just $12 and include 20 – 4″ × 6″ Cards (2 each of 10 designs) 36 – 3″ × 4″ Cards (2 each of 18 designs). They are ideal for not just pocket scrapbooking but also for card making. In my sample I have used one 6″ x 4″ card and 3″ x 4″ card. My card came together so quickly using these.
I added a few typewriter letters from the D1481 Vintage Type on the left using second generation Juniper ink. Second generation stamping gives a lighter shade of the chosen colour. Ink up the stamp, stamp off once on scrap paper, and then stamp on your project. As most of the ink came off the first time you will get a much lighter shade, this is a great way to really extend your ink collection without actaully buying more inks, or to add more subtle images to backgrounds.
I finished my card off with some stamped pennants, 2 are stamped using the pennants in the Vintage Type stamp set and the bamboo coloured one is a scrap piece from the Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment pack. Topped with the new thick twine in Glacier, Attached with the Mini stapler
Be sure to place your order during April to add this versatile set to your stamp collection.
