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!

Check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with this week too:
