Inspiration Hop Day 3: "True Love" StampTV Kit

Good morning! And welcome to our final day of inspiration hops with the Gina K team for the True Love StampTV Kit! Are you loving the new patterned papers?

I realized after stamping, coloring and cutting out this cute little typewriter (so I can add a sheet of real typing paper, stamped, curled and coming out of the top!) that it was the perfect size to fit on this pop up desk template I created awhile back! It is a FREE download, you can find it and the step by step instructions and photos for folding and adhering the desk to your card in this post. DP is from the True Love kit, plaid for the rug and hearts for the wallpaper! ;) . Cardstock is Pure Luxury Black Onyx. You could further decorate the scene for the typewriter and desk with pictures on the wall, pencil cups, mugs etc (images found in "Tech Talk") but I went for the rare "clean" and "minimal" (in my wildest dreams! in reality, this would have junk everywhere if it were mine! sigh!)

Now that is obviously the inside, for the front of this card, I typed out a little "hunt and peck" greeting (hee hee! Get the double entendre, like kiss?? HEEE!) and printed it, cropping ot down to 4" x 5 1/4" and adding stamped border and popped up heart.

Now please go have fun hopping with the rest of our team! Be sure to leave comments along the way to give you more chances to win a grab bag of a dozen fabulous stamps from Gina K Designs!

Thanks for visiting today!
