Rose Blossom Blog Hop: April Stamp of the Month

Welcome Everyone!

It's the 1st of the month and that means the Rose Blossoms are here to share some 
Stamp of the Month fun with you!

You likely hopped here from Lynn who went all out and showed us how it's done 
"Bungalow-Style" .... {I saw a sneak peek!}

Rose Blossom Hops are always traveled in a circle. 
You can hop on anywhere, make 9 hop-stops {comment if so inclined} and end off where you started.
  Small. Simple. Inspiring.
Your Hop Route is located at the bottom of this post in case you get lost.

Okay  ... so here's April's Stamp of the Month
"Typed Note"

As much as I'm determined to focus on scrapbooking this year, I have to admit that this stamp set screams CARDS! TAGS! NOTES! GIFTIES! 
So I went with it and made this card:

This card was inspired by fellow teammate Kristina K. I had the pleasure of spending time with her last weekend at our Team Retreat. {she rocked this stamp set!}

I also used Pattern 25 from our "Make It From Your Heart" Vol 1 How-To Book.

I cut a slit in the top of the typewriter so that little piece of paper is actually coming up and out of the typewriter.

I used the "Congrats" stamp to create a border around the inside of the card. The envelope is stamped with the "pointing hand" right where I will place the recipient's address.

It was hard to photograph the typewriter keys but you can sort of see how I put small dabs of Liquid Glass on each key to add some dimension and shine. {Kristina K's idea!}

Thanks for Hoppin' On In!
Now, you are off to see what Barb has in store for you .... enjoy!
