Just My Type (MM36)

Well it’s another week at Merry Monday and I’m excited to share my sample with you! This week I wanted to do something COMPLETELY different for the holidays and use a non-holiday stamp but in a holiday way. Got it? With a great sketch to work with I was on my way.

I started with some fun colours – Marina Mist, Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray and Riding Hood Red.

The stamp set I decided to use was Established Elegance. I love that typewriter and have been wanting to use it in some kind of fun and different way.

Starting with the tall horizontal panel, I used some textured Marina Mist card stock and layered it with a large snowflake, folding it around the edges for a fun look. I then tied on some Baker’s Twine.

Next, I cut a circle of Lucky Limeade onto which I put the typewriter, stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out.

Lastly, I added a little typed note “don’t open till Christmas” from Tags Til Christmas and also a little mini postage stamp which has another stamped image from the same stamp set.

A little bow of Baker’s Twine and a rhinestone finish it all off.

Hope you’ll get some time to play along with us this week at Merry Monday!
