One of the fun stamps sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog is "You're My Type" featuring a vintage manual typewriter and six phrases that fit onto the paper coming out of the paper carriage. This card was one of the Make and Takes at my workshop last night.
I've always loved pink and green together so the Melon Mambo and Old Olive combination with the Black and White was an enjoyable one for me. : ) The typewriter was stamped in Black then cut out easily with Stampin' Up's sharp little Paper Snips, an essential tool in MHO! It was adhered to a layer of Melon Mambo on a Whisper White card.
The bottom of the card features a layer of Designer Series Paper from the Just Add Cake collection; doesn't ithat look a lot like typewriter keys?!! This is framed by a layer of Old Olive cardstock. There are two other prints in this collection of DSP that are in similar circles; one is also letters and the other numbers! Nice!
If you look closely you can see swirly lines stamped in Melon Mambo ink on the background; the stamp used is from the very versatile Creative Elements set. A little loop of Old Olive Polka Dot Ribbon, a Melon Mambo flower punched out with the BoHo Blossoms Punch and a Rhinestone give some finishing touches to this card which will carry a friendly "hello" to the recipient.
