Memo: Office Space Stamps

Kay Williamson

I stamped up a storm with the unmounted images from the Office Space collection and created a super-fun batch of cards. Check them out! IMG_7645 copy JUMBO UM 0716Jumb0 The "vector-style" images have large solid surfaces. For best results, ink the stamp by first twisting the pad on the image and then tapping repeatedly to smooth the ink application. Place your panel onto a highly cushioned surface such as a mouse pad, thick magazine, or stack of scrap paper. For this card, stamp the coffee mug three times onto Manila plain with Earth ink and trim each one out with a craft knife. Color in the coffee with colored pencil. To create a rounded look for the mugs, add foam squares to the center of the coffee cup, and glue down the left and right edges. IMG_7511 copy The Greetings to Go kit includes some adorable laser cut Wood Tags that say "thank you." Adapt them for your own use by stamping on the reverse side with sentiments from your stash. IMG_7515 copy The Rolodex image has two plain cards showing. Stamp the "Look me up!" sentiment onto the blank card, or handwrite your own message. IMG_7520 copy ART NOUVEAU UM 0716ART I love the typewriter image on this sheet and the "You're my type" pun. I incorporated the mini memo sheets, a torn dictionary page, and a die cut file folder to complete the card. IMG_7456 copy Stamp a second typewriter onto Orange Plain, and trim out the "paper" portion from the typewriter. IMG_7431 copy Place foam squares near the top edge of the paper and glue the bottom to make it appear as if it's feeding through the typewriter. IMG_7432 copy IMG_7433 copy IMG_7429 copy IMG_7457 copy The sheet includes tons of different expressions that fit into the paper on the typewriter. Stamp three times onto Jade Plain with White Pigment ink and choose a unique message for each image. IMG_7452 copy Clip four Mini Memo Stickers to the card and add a hand-cut initial or image to the top for a perfect finishing touch. IMG_7453 copy Cut around the typewriter paper with a craft knife and slide the ribbon behind the image. IMG_7455 copy Use a Post-It note to make a mask of the typewriter image. Stamp onto card panel, cover with the mask, and stamp additional text into the background. IMG_7449 copy GREETING UM 0716Grt Rubber stamp the cooler image onto Boardwalk Sea Blue and Avocado Plain with black ink. Trim out the images with a scissors or craft knife and layer onto the card with foam squares. This is such a cool card! IMG_7442 copy This belated birthday card is so cute, you might intentionally mail it late! IMG_7441 copy I like this color blocked card format. Create three sections of three different colors for stamped images, a greeting, and a sentiment. IMG_7439 copy Now that I've completed all of these cards, I think I'll go take a break by the water cooler! Kay Kay0216
