Tuesday Trigger: Soup to Nuts

I haven’t played with a Tuesday Trigger for a looooooong while now, but as soon as I spied the Soup to Nuts trigger on World Cardmaking Day I just had to give it ago! Why? Because it instantly reminded me of this BasicGrey paper!

First off, the trigger! Love. It. Seriously.

And, here’s what I came up with!

I used my typewriter to type “hi there” on some graph paper — to go with the graph paper behind the letters in the trigger. Then I cut up the BasicGrey paper to spell out “Chris” — this is a card for my sis. We’ll see if she is reading this, HI CHRIS!!! ha.

I put it all on a long kraft notecard that I stamped with polka dots — to bring in the circles from the trigger. Next I used a new Kelly Purkey stamp to stamp “with love from me to you”. And of course I had to add a little wooden typewriter. :)

I’ll try to get a better photo tomorrow — had to get this one to make the deadline! Now I’m off to bed! Zzzzzz….

  1. Lisa, this is such a neat take on the trigger – LOVE every detail – especially that adorable, wooden typewriter! So fun how you took the photo on your new vintage one too! Sleep well! :)

  2. Fabulous! I love graphic alphabets and have been drooling over the Clippings collection! What a wonderful job you did of capturing the essence of the inspiration photo and creating something even more awesome with it!!! Thanks for sharing! I’ll be pinning it!

  3. This is the best take of the triggar that I have seen! The typed sentiments are perfect, not to mention the stamped polka dots on the main cardbase! Love it to pieces!

  4. This is super cute! All the different elements just came together perfectly. I like the background and the wooden typewriter, especially! As for the typewriter, I had a pale green one similar to yours. It had it’s own cute little case and I used it in college and it traveled with me to my first teaching job!
