Just my type?

I loved this typewriter stamp set as soon as I saw it.  It's so fun!  I need to experiment with a few more colors.  What color would you make it?  The stamp set is called Just My Type.

First I made it in Boho Blue after someone challenged me on Instagram.  I paired it with the Countryside Inn designer series paper, Deckled Circles, and Exposed Brick embossing folder.

Then I was challenged with Pebbled Path.  This was paired with Coastal Cabana designer series paper.  

Here is the latest in Azure Afternoon.  

Which is your favorite?  Aqua/teal is one of my favorite colors, so I prefer the Coastal Cabana card even though the typewriter is Pebble Path.

Here are some of the products used in case you'd like to purchase any of them.  You can also click on the shell to the right to shop in my store.  I send out a handmade card and a package of embellishments for every order $50 or more.  If you have a question about any of the products or cards, just leave a comment.  Happy to help!

Sending hugs

It's been a while!  Time has really gotten away from me lately. I created this card using this using the Layering Leaves bundle.  The sentiments are so beautiful!  We used this template called a Sheetload of Cards by Crafty Al (#slctJuly23) for my team challenge.  I started with a base of Boho Blue, and used the Countryside Inn designer series paper.  It has some pretty patterns!  I cut the sentiment out with the Nested Essentials dies, stamped the leaves and punched out, then tied with white baker's twine.  The embellishments are the Festive Pearls.  They are actually a bit on the green side, but look blue or Pool Party when paired with the dsp.

DSP Sale

Did you know some designer series paper is on sale for 15% off until June 30?  I used the Inked Botanicals paper with the Quiet Meadow bundle since I didn't have the Inked Botanicals bundle.  I think the flower looks pretty similar.  This paper is so soft and pretty!  

I started with a Basic White base and layered two panels of the dsp.  I then cut the rectangle from the Scalloped Contour dies, and several flowers from the Quiet Meadow dies.  I used Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  The background was sponged with Lost Lagoon (another color listed in the dsp).  I finished with a sentiment label in Calypso Coral and a few dots from the Ombre Matte Decorative Dots.

 I made this as part of a fun challenge on Paper Craft Challenge #PCC521.  I cased the catty with a twist (page 32).  

I used the Sweet Citrus bundle and used a base of Tahitian Tide.  Love this color, but I don't choose it much.  The embossed panel is in Lemon Lime Twist.  I brushed my fruit with a Wink of Stella pen so it looks wet.  The final touch was the piece of the Black & White Gingham Check ribbon and Black Matte Dots.  Let me know what you think!

Cheerful Daisies

It's been a while since I've been able to stamp!  Life gets in the way sometimes. I did manage to squeeze a few cards in over the weekend though.  I'm in love with the Cheerful Daisies suite!  These two are for my team sketch challenge.  The sketch is from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty. 


I've done opposites here.  The first is on a Basic White card base with Bubble Bath card stock and sentiment label.  The second is on a Bubble Bath base with a piece of designer series paper in Moody Mauve and a white sentiment label stamped in Moody Mauve.  Let me know which one you prefer!

All of these products can be purchased in my store.  Just click to browse:
