APRIL Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ Typed Note

Welcome to our April Stamp of the Month Hop! If you came from 
Krista Hershberger's blog  you're on the right track. Just keep clicking on the links to continue on the hop. 

I love the Typed Note stamp set. That typewriter is SO fun! I love the pointing hand, too. Not only that, you get some really great messages in this set, too!

I decided to use some Flaxen Paper Fundamentals for my background. I love the fact you have a tone on tone side and a tone with white side! My accent color is Pacifica. Be sure to look closely at the staples on the left. I colored some of them with a ShinHan Marine Blue Marker. I also used a piece of 3D Foam under the top of the paper image to give some dimension.


Isn't this a GREAT stamp set!!! You can get all this for only $5 with a qualifying purchase ($50 min.) Or you can buy it at the retail price of $17.95. Either way its a great deal! BUT, Typed Note is only available from April 1-30, 2015. After April it's gone, gone, gone!

    1. If you' ll be using a lot of the same color, ink them before stapling. If using just a few ink them after stapling. 😊

  6. The staples give this card such an "office" feel. Great use of accessories that fit the stamp set.
