Happy weekend’ing to you! I’m back with another card to share with you.
Today’s little typewriter card was inspired by Jennifer and Kristina’s Woven Windows lesson during Spring Card Camp 2 on Online Card Classes. I keep a little box of scraps by my desk and was like, “Hey, man. I’m going to give that a try.”
So I created the little window on this card with paper strips from that little box. Once I completed the window, I mounted vellum behind it.
I really liked the window and could have just gone with it on the card alone. But I’d stamped the typewriter and mouse (from Lawn Fawn’s Just My Type set) a couple days ago and really, really, really wanted to use them on a card… and I did. 😉 (By the way, the second sentiment on the card is from a Cathy Zielske Simon Says Stamp! set.)
To make the window pop, I did anchor the panel on a lot (and I mean a lot) of Crafty Foam Tape. The tape gives it some nice pop, but not too much. This card can still be mailed and all.
Anyway, I think this card turned out pretty fun. Hopefully, the friend who gets it, enjoys it!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate your kind words! See you again soon!
So many great ideas have been shared so far. Today’s card is just an idea I got in my head and decided to run with it. So let’s get to it. Meet today’s card.
Flying robots with coffee cups! It could happen… wink, wink! 🙂 I found myself giggling as I made this card. I initially planned to make a cute little love scene with a cup of coffee and the two robots and then my mind kinda just took off. (Don’t ask. Just don’t ask.) And my scene evolved into flying robots.
The sentiment, which is from an old My Favorite Things set, just seemed fitting. The swirly doohickey majicky is from MFT Stamps, to, as is the coffee cup.
The robots and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Charge Me Up set. Not sure why but robots stamps almost always end up in my crafty arsenal. I always enjoy making cards with them.
I created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Oh and I wanted to mention this. I use a lot of small embellishments. Liquid glue is pretty trendy these days for adhering them, but if you aren’t a liquid glue fan when it comes to embellishment, I highly recommend checking out the Micro Adhesive Dots from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are really small and work well for sequins.
Alrighty! That’s it! Be sure to check out the hop’s link up. So many great projects! See you again soon! 🙂
The colorful background was created by blending a few different colors of ink on cardstock. Then I added the lattice-y die-cut to it. Sit back for a minute. Let me confess something to you. I had this panel sitting around for awhile, thinking for awhile about using it on another card.
Add the stamped steam vent was somewhat an afterthought. I stamped it and kinda just mentally said, “Please work, please work, please work.” And it surprisingly did. I think it turned out OK.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve got! Be sure to check out the links for all the hoppers on this post here. New stuff is shared throughout the hop so keep checking back! And if you’ve got coffee or tea stamps or dies, share something too!
