Back to stamping

Happy new year everyone.

What with the holidays and a house full of guests, it seems like weeks since I stamped. It was so nice to finally get back to my craft desk and make this card.

This card is for this week's Off the Wall Craftiness challenge (OTWC39), which uses the colors of black, white and silver. (That's the inspiration photo at right) Black and white is such an elegant combo, and silver is just icing on that cake.

This typewriter is a new one I picked up at Michael's dollar bin. I love the vintage look, and it called to mind this sort of art-deco paper from Making Memories. I simply matted the typewriter on metallic silver paper and added a couple silver brads. Can't get any easier than that.


  1. What a great dollar bin find! You would never know!!! Thanks for joining in the fun with us this week at OTWC and Good Luck! Happy New Year! :-)

  2. Pretty card - love that typewriter! Thanks for playing with us at OTWC this week!

  3. I agree with Tammy, that IS a great dollar find...and you've used it wonderfully in this card. That silver glittery frame is so pretty. Thanks for playing along with OTWC this week.

  4. That is such a lovely dollar "find"! Love that glittery goodness you layered in there! Thanks for playing along with us last week at OTWC!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
