I geeked out when I saw this stamp set at the new catalog premiere and couldn't wait to order it, so it was on my very first order. As someone who makes her living typing, typewriter images are a favorite, as well as the fond memories I have of listening to my dad tap, tap, tapping away in the evenings. He was the secretary for his bowling league, and before there were computers, that was how he did the massive amounts of paperwork required. When I was in junior high, typing was one of the classes I took, and I was very glad I did when being able to type got me all of the office jobs I have ever had.
And I have stamping and typing to thank for the job I have now. Typing because I know how and stamping because it led me to Splitcoaststampers. Splitcoaststampers had their Current Events forum where I used to be very active and spent a lot of time typing posts in there. With the result that my 55 to 65 words per minute, which was my top typing speed before this time, turned into 80 to 90 words per minute. Which is what allows me to do what I do. I would never have considered doing medical transcription before that, because I thought you had to be a fast typist. You don't really, but it definitely helps.
ANYWAY, here's the first card I have made with this set. Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Tap, Tap, Tap; Work of Art; Paper - Flashback DSP, Real Red, Basic Black, Pool Party, Very Vanilla; Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Pool Party, Real Red, Crushed Curry, Whisper White; Other - Real Red 1/4" cotton ribbon, Spiral Border punch, 1/2" circle punch, Basics Hodgepodge Clips, Basic Black marker, Neutrals Candy Dots, sponge wedges, Dimensionals.
GOJUS (YILM!) I used Work of Art to "color" the typewriter, and I like how it turned out! Here's another view:
If you are wondering, the new spiral punch has the same size holes and spacing as the old one, but instead of 2 holes, there are 4. If you have the old one, you don't have to buy the new one, but you have to punch twice as much. And the new style is the one that stacks and latches closed, but the old one is the old whale tail kind. I have the old one myself.
You can buy all of the schtuff I used to make this card in my webstore! Ta!
