Black and White card

Classic Black and White card with just a little grey copic coloring to complete the whole look.  Very simple this is can be done when you really need a quick greeting card that is simple yet presentable.

Using Mama Elephant’s Type It clear stamp set which has a vintage typewriter and many options available to create your own sentiment, I did a simple stamp of the very first piece of paper, stamped another on a post-it tag as a masking paper.

Next was to stamp the typewriter after masking and I had to align it properly to the base of the first piece of paper so that it looks as if the paper is straight out from the typewriter.

And then, I stamped the rest of the other papers behind and if you noticed, the second paper is stamped on the opposite edge of the paper.

The good thing about well design clear stamps is the ability to create a really pretty card without the need to switch another set of stamps.  Everything you need to create a card is all in the same set.  That makes cardmaking totally enjoyable.  There are still many design possibilities with this clear stamp and I am definitely going to play around with this.

There are many possibilities with this stamp set and you will be pleasantly surprised by the design with this small stamp set.  Subscribe to my monthly newsletter and be informed of card ideas and more!

    Hi Ren, just wanted to thank you so much for your lovely comments about my blog and my card at CASology. Always so nice to hear nice feedback about my designs and was blown away to win this week. So glad you loved New Zealand when you were here 10 years ago. Thankfully its still lovely and green and very warm at the moment. We have just started Summer and I’m looking very tanned already! Will definitely be bbq’s for Xmas again this year. I love your typewriter card by the way. Its wonderfully crisp and modern and the touch of grey is perfect. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a happy and healthy 2015!
