Typewriter love!


Or should that be 'hello' given today's card? :)

I'm here with the some sneak peeks of Clearly Besotted's April release and I can confirm that you're in for a treat! This little card was whipped up using the new stamp set, 'Keep in Touch'. Don't tell the other sets, but I think this one is my favourite. It's so cute, on-trend and features some of my favourite icons. Just don't tell the other sets, OK?

I thought this card was pretty sweet using the stamps as they are, but I couldn't resist incorporating a little interactive fun to the design...

hello i love you

All that's missing is the sound effects of a typewriter! This idea is so simple and achieved by cutting the typewriter paper insert with a craft knife and stamping the sentiment onto a tiny piece of cardstock to slot into it.

For the perfect finishing touch, I added some Glossy Accents to the typewriter keys:

hello i love you close up

That's enough typing from me today! I'll be back tomorrow with yet another sneaky peek of the Clearly Besotted April release. In the meantime, if you haven't already, pop across to Stephanie's for more sneak peeks including links to fabulous projects from the Design Team including our guest teamies, Rebecca Hoy and Nicole Picadura!

love this Aimes, I did try using this stamp in a similar way with some paper clay but after it was pretty much finished I messed up the paper slot and cut straight through the type-writer- doh!!! Rebecca x
