Post Script CASE

P.S. You’re the Best is a fun stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I especially like the typewriter that allows you to stamp a sentiment on the paper part of the image. It begs for customized messages beyond what’s in the set. I decided to pair it with the Post Script background set. Made sense to me. P.S – Post Script. Ah, the ways my mind works. Of course, I dove into Pinterest for inspiration and found a great card made with the same background and using the Crafting Forever stamp set. You can see my inspiration from Carmen Morris here.


Stampin' Up! P.S. You're the Best paired with the Post Script background stamp. A CASE of Carmen Morris's card.

For my card, I started with a base of Mossy Meadow. I liked the touch of black in Carmen’s card so I kept that and paired it with Copper Foil for a little more sparkle. The Post Script background is stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla card stock.. Using the same ink, I sponged the edges. I liked the aged quality and wanted to incorporate that in my card.

Next I added another strip of Copper Foil, 1-1/2″ wide. Over that I layered a 1/2″ strip of kraft paper (left over from the Holiday catalog 12×12). I ripped the end and sponged that as well.

The typewriter is from the P.S. You’re the Best stamp set. I added the “P.S” and the “you’re the best” sentiments in Memento Tuxedo Black. The image was too large for the Stitched Shape Ovals, so I used the new Stitched Rectangles in the Occasions catalog. These dies will get a lot of use. I sponged the edges of that piece in Soft Suede so it wasn’t quite as dark as the background. I used Dimensionals to adhere it.

For a final touch I added three green rhinestones from a Christmas card kit. You could achieve the same look using a Mossy Meadows Stampin’ Blends marker and our Basic Rhinestones. This would make an excellent thank you card for any gender recipient.
