SugarPea Designs You're My Type

Hi friends! It has been raining and gloomy here in North Carolina for about a week and the forecast is calling for rain for another week. It's hard to take good pictures without the great natural light, so I apologize for the photos.
I am playing along with 2 challenges: One is a color challenge: As You See It #243:

I started with Sugarpea Designs' cute stamp called You're My Type. I have used this before (not NBUS) and wanted to make a few cards for Friendship Day at the end of July. If you look at all the sentiments in this set, you'll see that it covers almost any circumstance - get well, anniversary, Christmas, birthday, and general love and miss you. I really enjoy working with this set and it stamps beautifully!
In the spirit of CAS and a corner challenge I stamped the typewriter in the corner of an 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Card stock using Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink. Why do I always use this black ink? It is a rich, dark beautiful color and stamps thoroughly with an acrylic block. It also stays wet for a bit, so I can sprinkle clear embossing powder over it and heat set. I like to do this to prevent bleeding with both watercolors and alcohol markers. This card was colored with grey alcohol markers from several different manufacturers.
I stamped the sentiment onto the typewriter sheet. I've been brave lately and used an acrylic block and not my MISTI for these small stampings. But I practice on scrap paper until it comes out perfectly and I know how the stamp handles.
I stamped the typewriter again onto a piece of Gina K Masking Paper and fussy cut it. This sticky image I placed over the typewriter so that I could lay the stencil over it and ink blend with Ranger's Distress Ink Mowed Lawn. The stencil is from called Little Boxes. I just wanted the stencilling to fade to nothing from around the typewriter.
The background is paper from Stampin' Up! in Sahara Sand. I used the Lawn Fawn Just Stitching Double Rectangles around the A2 piece. It only pierces, does not die cut.  The little flower is from my stash, cut out of scrap of watercolor paper and colored with alcohol markers. A red enamel dot from my stash for the center, but Kat Scrappiness just came out with some new ones which would work perfectly.

I set the cover panel at a bit of an angle using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive. My preferred adhesive so I can move the card stock a bit before it sets up.
A Clean and Simple card, but I love it! It has some dimension and bright colors.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope there is some sun wherever you are!

Hello, welcome to Stampin With Anita. I love crafting in all forms. It gives me great joy to create something special. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Anita, I LOVE this card. The quirky stamp set is appealing all on its own. The spotted background, stitched and slightly askew panel, the tiny red flower all shout out quality of design and execution. Thank you for joining in with us at As You See It Challenge.

  2. I love a pun, Anita, so this appeals to me! I love the tilt of the front panel, and the way the image is confined to a corner. You've done a beautiful job of your composition and colour! Thanks for using our colour palette at As You See It Challenges.

    1. Thank you, Heather! Your comments mean a lot to me.

  3. That's a fab image and I love the matching sentiment. Awesome card. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

  4. Such a sweet card! Thanks for joining us at AAA Cards.

  5. Oh my gosh, I am a sucker for vintage typewriters, and you couldn't have picked a better subject for our color challenge this week! I LOVE THIS! The little red flower is a perfect embellishment! Thanks for playing with us at As You See It!
