April Stamp of the Month - Typed Note


Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Typed Note, a set of 19 stamps including a vintage typewriter. If you have come here from Nancy Womersley's Blog you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.


I had a little fun with this set.  The vintage theme called for some Paper Fundamentals in Enchantment colors.   This card has a secret hidden message.  Can you guess where?


After stamping my typewriter I cut a slit at the top and created another 'hidden' message behind the first.   You can see the message by pulling the tab!  The tab is a clip from the My Crush Wildwood Clips.  I used a glue dot to make it permanent so that it would not pull away.










Pull the tab and find out what the "NEWS" is!


I will be teaching how to create this fun card at my next Technique Tuesday Class!

Here are the products I used to create my card:

Z2047 My Crush Wildwood Clips
Paper Fundamentals - Enchantment Assortment - Z2031
Sequins Gold Assortment - Z2012

More Blossoms

I'm still playing with my Blossom Cardmaking WOTG kit.  The papers are so pretty!!  This time I used another new stamp - Wavy Blooms (D1651) with the leftover papers that I have.


I stamped the images with Versa Mark ink and embossed them in white.  I used my ShinHan Touch Twin markers to color the flowers.  The sentiment is from the stamp set that is included with the kit. I added our new washi tape - a strip of Glacier and Pear from the new washi pack - Boardwalk.  New white sequins from the Coral Reef Sequins add a finished look to the card.

All of these new products will be available on April 1!

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for my card design.

April's Artfully Sent Class - Graduation Cards

Just in time for all the High School and College graduations that are just around the corner!  My next Artfully Sent class is all about Graduation Cards! In this class we will create these three cards:


The first is a sentiment card.  I added some color using the Glitter paper from the Teal Glitter Paper collection.

The 2nd card we will create is a swing card!  I added star paper from the Chalk It Up paper pack to help bring out the celebration!  I kept the card pretty simple but add some free-handed lines around the card with a journaling pen to give it a finished look.



The last card is a pop-up card!



If you are local to me and have the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and your own Cricut Machine you can sign up for this class!   The class fee is just $10 and you get all the materials you will need to make the cards - including envelopes!  You just need to bring your Artfully Sent Cartridge and Cricut Machine and other basis supplies!
