I used the 12x12 Hello My Name Is patterned papers for these cards. The prints are great for cards- not too big! I've added the names in parenthesis as I chat about them so you know where I found each piece. The journaling cards also work well for cards- they make a great focal point. I used one of the polaroid cards (Polaroids) for this one. I stamped the damask image first with kraft colored ink and then splattered a bit of gray mist over it. I added some of the polka-dotted washi tape next. I cut out the typewriter (Noted) and stamped the 'hi' with some alphabet stamps I found in my stash. I added it to the polaroid with a foam pop dot. Lastly, I added some linen thread around it and finished off the look with a few sequins and a decorative brad.
The typewriters are too cute! I can't get enough of them and I'm SO glad they decided to include one in the stamp set!! You'll see that in my next card:
I wanted to create a clean looking card using the stamps so I started with a plain white card base. I added the scalloped border sticker next. To stamp the 'hello', I had to cut one of my stamps- since it's clear, you can fit it back together on an acrylic block or use them separately. You could just ink up the 'hello' part if you don't want to cut it, too! Anyways, I stamped 'hello' with black ink next and then stamped the typewriter next to it in a dark red shade. I decided to add a little sparkle to my simple card and splattered it with some pearly white mist. I added some sequins to accent my stamping and then added the linen thread.
Isn't that typewriter stamp cute? If you love typewriters like I do, you'll love this next one too- I used the adorable typewriter decorative tape on it!!
I used another journaling card (Love) as part of my background this time, cutting it to fit my card front. I tucked a little strip of the floral photo overlay under the top portion. I added the decorative tape next and then stamped the ornamental shell design in black just underneath. I splattered a little gray mist next and then added my focal point. I chose this journaling card (Record) and cut it into a heart shape. I added it to my card front with foam pop dots and embellished it with two beautiful gems.
It feels so good to start the year off with a few cards- one of my resolutions is to send at least one card each week of the year. I'm so glad I could share them with you all!!
Thanks for joining me today!!
