You’re not old…you’re vintage–SSSC #218


Hey, there! It’s time for this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has another great sketch for us this week—love the tilted panel!

My card started with a Primitive White card stock base, to which I added a piece of Kraft card stock. I stamped it randomly and partially, with Typewriter Text Background using Black Licorice Hybrid ink, then popped it up on foam. I added two Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics die cuts to that—one stamped on Berrylicious card stock with Black Licorice ink and LJD Spring Backgrounds and for the other I used Striped Backgrounds with Fuse Green ink on Fuse Green card stock.

Next I cut a piece of Primitive White card stock with LLD Insert It – 3x4 Notebook Paper Die-namics and stamped it with Berrylicious ink with LLD Journal It – For the Record. Then I stamped it again with Steel Gray ink and LJD Art Expression Text and popped it up on foam. The typewriter from DC Just My Type was stamped on the coordinating Just My Type Die-namics die cut and popped up on foam, as well. Enamel dots finished it off.

Another sentiment from DC Just My Type was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
