Dreamy & Beachy

Hi there!  I've got two more cards to share today.  First is my entry for The Card Concept.  I immediately thought of this typewriter image from Mama Elephant and I pulled out some soft and dreamy Heidi Swapp paper to pair it with.  The scalloped Winnie & Walter frame adds to the soft feel of it all as well using pearls instead of diamond bling.  I'd say the style is halfway between Clean and Simple and Clean and Layered.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Soft Stone) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Dreamy 6x6) Heidi Swapp
Stamps:  (Typewriter & sentiment from Type It) Mama Elephant
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Mint Macaron) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Scalloped rectangle) Winnie & Walter
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  This Newton's Nook Sun Soaked Christmas stamp set is perfect for us here in Bermuda!  I think this is one set that will definitely get a lot of use.  I coloured the image with Copics and popped the circle up on foam tape over the MFT patterned paper.  

That's it for now.  Have a wonderful day!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Tempting Turquoise) Stampin' Up

Card #1: so pretty! Card #2: so funny! :D Love the vintage typewriter paired with that soft paper, and you may have found your perfect Santa image. I, however, am still searching. :P

Love the soft scallop background panel, a perfect backdrop for the vintage typewriter. Thank you so much for joining the Card Concept Challenge.

What a fabulous take on the inspiration, Jen ... such a sweet typewriter against that soft, pastel, scalloped background! Your Santa's brilliant ... and so fun ... just where I'd like to be right now! Hugs, Anita :)
