MTS184 Vintage Typewriter

Hi, peeps!  A lazy Saturday and I am moving in slo-mo today!  I needed some generic "Thinking of You" and "Hello" cards, and I thought I would use the Match the Sketch sketch this week to make a masculine one:

I used some new-to-me stuff that I've never taken out of the package!!!  So here we go:

All the stamped images are from a Stamplorations set called Old Type, along with a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Typewriter!  I colored the raised areas lightly with a sponge dauber to make them stand out:

And I stamped the typewriter image on an old piece of SU newspaper-style DSP.  The chevron piece was stamped with a Paper Pumpkin image.  I love this vintage look!

I got two nice cards in the mail this week, one from Martha and one from Vicki!  Here's Martha's pretty one with its inlaid sentiment:

And here's Vicki's; you can't see it well, but it's VERY sparkly!  SO pretty!


And another little project by Cassidy (please don't look at my messy craft area!) featuring the owl punch holding a little sign by his "wings"!  Sorry for the poor picture quality...I am lucky to get her to pose for anything these days!

Enjoy your day, be blessed and be sure to come back tomorrow when I am the hostess at the Paper Players!

You do vintage so beautifully! I love the layering and the clever ways you've added in text to support the main image. So clever and so lovely!
