What's That You SAY?

The Stampendous team is focused on sentiments for the month of August. I may be fudging slightly on this card, as it is probably more focused on text than sentiment, but I think it "says" enough either way. I love this Perfectly Clear Vintage Typewriter set introduced last many fun ways to create with it, and so many sentiments to choose from.

The  background is this fun font and message filled paper from Canvas Corp, that is perfect with the typewriter theme. My love of added dimension meant that I had to pop up the typewriter, roll my paper, and tie a metal letter on with jute twine, not to mention add a "bulletin board" behind the typewriter with fun cork paper (also from Canvas Corp). I stamped with Onyx Versafine and added a fine mist of Amaretto Memories Mists for that coffee-stained look. ( I'm thinking I should have added a "coffee cup ring" as well...oh, time.)

Be sure to play along with the Stampendous team through the month of August and link your SENTIMENT-al creations to the link at the bottom of my post, or on the Stampendous Impressions blog for a chance to win one of these great new sentiment stamps:

Now hop around a bit and get inspired by our Sentiment loving Design Team, then create something of your own! Here's a chance to dig out that sentiment stamp you just had to have but haven't used yet. BONUS if your project uses Stampendous products your entry counts twice!!

Pam, I love all the cool elements of your card. Really like the way you "rolled" the paper in the typewriter. Pretty darn awesome!

Melinda Gleissner said...

Love your added embellishments Pam. The cork and the letter really add a lot to the overall design.

Very clever, love what you did with this cute and I must have the same taste, the two stamps you used are two of the few that I own from Stampendous!

Crazy about this card Pam! The popped up typewriter & the rolled paper are so clever...then the cork & the wonderful numbers stamped on the background...this card is one of my all-time favorites!!!!
