You're My Type

     One of my favorite ways to make my stash go further is to use my stamps to create my own patterned paper. For this card, I used the feather image from my SU Established Elegance stamp set to create a repeated pattern on a plain piece of Daffodil Delight card stock. A stamp positioning tool is definitely your best friend on a project like this!

For the main image on this project, I stamped the typewriter onto a sticky note and cut it out, then positioned the mask on my ivory card stock before stamping the alphabet. Then I removed the mask and stamped the typewriter in the masked area. 

I used a similar process for the card below using a damask background stamped in Pear Pizzazz. This process allows you to create the perfect paper using an inexpensive neutral card base.

I hope you'll try creating your own background paper ... it's a fun, easy, and inexpensive tool to add to your card-making arsenal. Thanks for stopping by, my friends!
