Typewriter stamps and lace edging

I am on the lookout for a vintage typewriter stamp, and although it's not quite old-world, this is the coolest little combo from Hero Arts. There is enough room on the paper above the typewriter to use the quote stamps, or to pen your own personalized words. Or you could use parts of a quote-stamps in different combinations, by coloring in a few words with inks... like 'old school' or 'my type'. Hmm... ideas.

Final stamping inspiration of the week is a combination of stamping and punching. I saw this project on a website, and I can't remember where now (Stampin' Up! perhaps?), and I can imagine all sorts of uses for this technique. The simplicity of a lace edge really appeals - these were stamped with a cursive script (or they could be pre-printed stock), then a lace punch was used, and lightly inked for a textured vintage finish.
