I got some happy mail yesterday... I just couldn't resist the Just My Type die and stamp set from My Favorite Things. I also couldn't resist sitting down with it right away.
I started with a cream card base and stamped one of the scripty fonts from Text It in gray ink. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Circle Lace stamp in yellow. On top of that I added a strip of patterned paper and stitched it along the edges. Yellow and gray are perfect retro colors to me.
I die cut the typewriter and paper shapes, then stamped the typewriter image and my sentiment of choice. There are lots of fun ones in this set, but I just wanted a quick note for a friend.
I tied some baker's twine around my paper to help give a little more color balance to the design. I really like how it turned out! This stamp set is fun, and I can't wait to try out some of the other sentiments.
It is a long weekend coming up here in the US and I couldn't be more excited! A day off! So necessary! It is the unofficial start of summer - do you have any plans?
Thanks for stopping by to see me - have a great day!
