Say Anything....with a card

Hi All! Welcome to the April Rose Blossom Blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart's FABULOUS April Stamp Of The Month: Typed Note. I love the vintage feel of this stamp set and the typewriter font will work with so many other stamp sets, too.

If you just hopped over from the talented Shelly Nemitz's blog, you're in the right place. I'll have a list of blog participants at the end of this post, if you're just starting with me or if you get lost along the way.

Now, on to the project!

I've been on a bit of a clean and simple kick in my card making of late, and this latest card set might be the  ultimate example of that style. It features über simple, single layer cards that I created using the fantastic vintage typewriter image in the Typed Note set.

For these cards, I stamped the image on a standard White Daisy card base, using the rainbow of ink colors in the CTMH Adventure Color Palette (Gypsy, Pacifica, Lagoon, Topiary, Pear, Honey, Sunset, Cotton Candy, Hollyhock, and Cranberry). As you can see, I left the page in the typewriter blank. I plan to go back and add sentiments as I need them (hence the post title "Say Anything...). Typed Note is perfect for that. In fact, I have used 3 of these cards already and stamped sentiments on them using my favorite Archival Black Ink. These two were for a couple of good friends of mine:

Color: Cotton Candy
Color: Pear
And I gave this one to my son when he returned home from his class trip to France:

Color: Topiary

Here's a look at the inside:

Typed Note has so many different sentiments for so many different occasions that I find myself reaching for it over and over for card-making. And I like have some "pre-made" cards on hand that I can quickly customize for any occasion. 

I hope you were inspired by this little card set. Remember the Stamp Of The Month can be purchased by itself at the regular D-set price of $17.95 or can be added to your order of $50 or more for just $5. Now hop on over and see what the fantastic and inspiring Morgan Vogt has in store for you!

And if you get lost along the way, here's a list of the blog participants to make life a little easier:
