Fluffy typewriter


Hope you're having a wonderful weekend sweeties. I'm continuing stretching the CAS theme with some pink glittery fluff stuff. If you work hard you really need to play harder. The thought was that the pink glittery fluff stuff should make one think about parties....but it only reminds me of those colour tapes that went crazy in old fashioned type writers and that my pinkies get stuck when writing. Oh, and those icy looks the type writer teacher gave me!!! 

Crafty Catz: CAS, no DP, no Fuss
Dream Valley Challenges: Sparkle, bling and embellish


Materials used:
Freebie type writer image stamped with black Versa Fine ink onto a leftover cardstock snippet. Then stamped a second time with embossing ink and heat embossed with fine clear embossing powder. Remember to let the first ink to dry and that this works best with clear stamps so that you can see the first impression.

Fussy cutting with Snellen scisssors and layered onto the shiny stuff.

The sentiment was stamped with Exchangeable alphabet stamps onto other snippets with Watering Can Archival ink, heat embossed and fussy cut. Placed with 3D squares for dimension.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  27. Clever & unique, Maarit! I have a ton of shreds like that & haven't used it in a long time. Thanks for the inspiration!

  28. Oh, the memories! I got such a kick out of your post, Maarit, and I love the card! Yes, indeed, those ribbons were HARD to deal with and, as well, my pinkies (which have a slight genetic curve to them) could NOT press down accurately or hard enough on their assigned keys!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
