Just My Type ~ TSOC

Hello friends.  The Sisterhood of Crafters is starting a new challenge today and we're looking for you to create your own background.  

I created two backgrounds for this card:
For the larger background, I used Concord & 9th Plaid Background, stamping the plaid in Worn Lipstick DOX ink onto pink cardstock.  The lines are stamped in red.

For the smaller background, I stamped a Typewriter Text Background from MFT using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  I rubbed Worn Lipstick DOX ink over the text and then using an old heart stencil, I added more DOX ink.  

The typewriter is from Marianne Designs.  I tucked in a couple of mint green leafy twigs using Frantic Stampers Assorted Foliage.

The finished sentiment on the inside of the card reads "Thanks".  

I hope you'll hop on over to The Sisterhood of Crafters blog to join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Bear Hugs ~ TSOC

Hello, hello!  The Sisterhood of Crafters is back from our holiday break and we're starting a new challenge today, asking you to use die cuts and/or an embossing Folder.  Sound fun?
Here's what I came up with, using both embossing and die cuts:

I started by embossing a piece of green cardstock using an FSJ Evergreen embossing folder.  I gently rubbed some Pine Needles DOX ink over the raised areas and cut a circle out of the center.

I stamped this darling image from Uniquely Creative Polar Pals and colored it with Copics.  I backed the circle using a piece of watercolor printed paper, tucked the bears in and stamped the hearts from the stamp set, surrounding the bears with love.

To finish it off, I adhered a  Happy Birthday die cut from My Favorite Things.  

I hope you are inspired to join in on the fun over at The Sisterhood Of Crafters.
This will be co-designer Vicki's last challenge with the team as she'll be taking care of family needs.  I wish you the very best Vicki!
