BlogStar Asia King brings us a card today with a unique way of Focusing on the Sentiment! Hope you got your entry in for the August Challenge because today is the last day! You can find the linky tool on last Saturday’s post HERE if you still need to upload your project!
Hello Friends! It’s this time again – my favourite – Asia’s Stampendous BlogStar time!
For my inspiration today I decided to drop you all a note…:). A ‘thank you’ note to be most precise! My project today has a masculine flavour with a discrete ‘feminine touch’ – a splash of colour.
Let’s start with your shopping list:
US shoppers: Typewriter Note cling stamp
UK shoppers: Typewriter Note cling stamp
Other supplies: Tim Holtz Lost and Found papers, black cardstock, baker’s twine, scrabble alphas, Tea Dye distressing ink, Black Archival ink, scrap of background paper and… a vintage typewriter!
1. Prepare your card blank from the black cardstock.
2. Cut the main background paper slightly smaller than the base card and distress with the Tea Dye ink.
3. Stamp the typewriter image on your background paper and again on a scrap paper.
NB. My scrap paper was coloured with distress inks using wrinkle free technique. Then crumpled, swiped with the Tea Dye ink, spritzed with water and then ironed flat for a good measure .
4. Cut out the type writer pages from you scrap paper and adhere to the stamped image on the main background panel.
5. Using a vintage typewriter (or any alternative solution!) type in any additional sentiments to suit the occasion.
6. Fix the panel to the base card with your favourite adhesive.
7. Cut out a selection of vintage photos from the paper pack and attach to the card as shown.
8. Add the recipient/s’ name/s using scrabble alphas – distress the letters with Tea Dye ink for more vintage look.
9. Wrap the twine for added interest.
Don’t forget about our ‘sentimental’ challenge this month – you still have time to enter!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this inspiration and if you have, feel free to drop me a note! Lol .
Till next time!
