Typeset DSP with a MAsculine Clean and Simple Look

I've been having fun using the Typeset Specialty paper in the Annual Catalog.We used some of the Typeset paper at my last stamp class and I really enjoyed the quick and vintage feel it can evoke. Since one of the challenges  I had gone to was a masculine birthday challenge I knew that the numbers would work well. The sketch challenge gave me a fun layout to stamp the simply CELEBRATE. Be sure to go check out the other challenge samples at Connie and Mary and the Paper Players.


It was kind of an interesting day here in Auburn. We just got back from attending an amazing wedding in downtown L.A. in Southern Calif and came back to MORE smoke filled skies from an enormous fire in the Sierras. We are not in any danger but we can't open our windows because of the smell and unhealthy air. I can deal with that except I had to spend some time outside with my hens trying to catch them and roll them in some dust to help rid them of a mite infestation. Hopefully they are on the mend as they have lost a lot of feathers and are not interested in laying any eggs. Is it possible to feel compassion for stupid chickens? They may be asking the same thing about stupid owners!!! LOL

O.k.. back to today's card. 
It has a Rich Razzleberry card base with a reduced panel of Basic Black 5 1/4" x 3 and Baked Brown Sugar 5 1/4" x 1". Next comes a vanilla panel 4 3/4" x 5". The 2 strips of the Typeset DSP are 1 1/4" wide and varying lengths depending on how you line up the strips. Each of the pieces were sponged with Crumb Cake ink. Before I attached it to the vanilla layers I pulled out the Rich Razzleberry color by adding just a small accent strip from the MOONLIGHT DSP stack. Who knew that a 1/4" strip could make such a subtle impact. After the layers are attached I sponged all the way around the vanilla layer. Stamp the "CELEBRATE" from the Holiday Invitation photopolymer stamp set in Rich Razzleberry.

Add a cute arrow clip embellishment from the ESSENTIAL HARDWARE CLIPS collection. I looped on a couple of Linen Thread tails to give an extra masculine texture. I love being able to show the whole clip instead of attaching it to a paper edge....thank you Glue Dots.
