Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am still making Valentines! The Retro Rubber challenge this week is to “remake” a Valentine!
This is the Valentine I am recreating; it was from February of 2013:
I used the same sketch but went with some deeper, richer colors. What do you think:
These designer papers are from My Mind’s Eye Heirloom line; the stamps are from PS: I Love You (retired SU); the cardstock is Naturals White, Cherry Cobbler and Strawberry Slush. I embossed the white scallop with the retired Adorning Accents embossing folder and added a little organdy flower that I very lightly brushed with some pink ink:
The sentiment flag is the same pattern as the vertical panel, and it’s stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. Such pretty patterns! Thanks for visiting today!
Cassidy is enjoying her gymnastics!
WOW! LeAnne, these are both really stunning!! I just did this challenge...wait till you see my "ugly"!! LOL!!
Both cards are really fabulous!
This looks like a fun challenge. I like both version of your Valentine card. I love the soft pastels of the "old" one and the richness of the "new" one. I do love all the extra hearts - in the paper and the embossed ones - of the "new" card.
It's great to see that Cassidy is enjoying her gymnastics.
These are both beautiful LeAnne...love the depth of color in the second one..and the embellishments ... Stunning..love how you work with DSP! Enjoy you day 😊
What do I think? I think it's fabulous! I like the deep reds on the second one but your original is very feminine! The heart die with all of the tiny hearts is adorable!
Both cards are beautiful. Love the soft colors in the first one and also the deep, rich colors in the second one. Great job on both.
Cute Valentines and I have one more I need to stamp too. I can't believe Cassidy is in Gymnastics already. She was just a baby yesterday. LOL!
love both versions! my daughter is a gymnast too! come visit me online!
Your older card is lovely but the newer one is GORGEOUS!. I still have that stamp set also. Beautifully done, Leanne! Thanks so much for sharing this with RRBC!!
LeAnne, your cards are both beautiful! Isn't it fun to bring out your old products?! I love your layers and texture from the retired Accents emboss folder. The colors are gorgeous and anyone would love to receive this card. Thank you for playing along with the Retro Rubber Challenge and hope you will play with us again soon.
What a great job with both cards. It is wonderful how you tied the papers together and added so many layers and details. I do like the richer colors as well! RRCB DT
I love both of your cards! Great job. Isn't it so nice to repurpose a layout?
You are on a real roll, LeAnne! Love both of these, but I especially love the pinks and greens together.
I think both of these cards are wonderful but your remake is fabulous! Thank you for playing along with Retro Rubber!
Awe - I love both of your cards!! Great work!! It's fun to go back and see what we'd once done!! Thanks for playing with us at Retro Rubber!!
