You're Just My Type Valentine

Shocking I know, but I'm hooked on this Two Tags Die for the BIG SHOT!  I had quite a few different sized tags cluttering up my desk after I shot yesterday's video, so not one to waste a good thing, I got to work on a new card.  :)  This one uses the longer, skinnier version.  
I adore the new Just My Type Stamp Set from the new Stampin' Up! 2012 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  You may remember that I grieved the loss (ok, retirement) of the Puns from the Past Stamp Set last year, and the typewriter in this new set is EVEN BETTER than the one from this previous set!  AND, it has a bunch of sentiments to go with it!  I knew Stampin' Up! wouldn't let me down! 

Another fun thing?  Faux typewriter keys!  Easy peasy to make too!  Just stamp your letters in White Craft Ink onto Basic Black cardstock, punch out with your circle size of choice, and cover generously with crystal effects.  Allow for lots of dry time, and voila!  Faux typewriter keys!  FUN!

Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Whisper White Craft
Paper: First Edition DSP, Red Glimmer, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Just My Type, Calendar Alphabet & Numbers
Punches: Circle (from Itty Bitty Punch Pack), Corner Rounder (retired style with removable guides), Scallop Trim, Owl (for small heart)
 Big Shot: Two Tags Die
Embellishments: Linen Thread 
Other: Crystal Effects, Stampin' Sponge, Crop-a-dile 
Thanks for stopping in to see me again today.  I hope you've been inspired.  :)

Happy Stampin'
