RRCB79 and MTS214 Love

Happy Friday peeps!  Wow, the weekend is here and Super Bowl is quickly approaching!  But I am in the throes of making Valentines!  So many pretty challenges out there, I just can't help myself!  Today I am using the Match the Sketch sketch and the RetroRubber "love" challenge for my card:


There really isn't much stamping on my card, most of the work is done by some beautiful papers (they are retro, too!) by My Mind's Eye called Heirloom, but I did stamp the striped paper with the French Script background stamp from SU, and the date on the label says 2000!  Wow....that's an oldie for sure!  So here we go:

All the papers except for the pink hearts that are behind the printed hearts, are from the same paper pack...I just punched them out with a large SU heart punch.  The "I love you" heart is from the same paper, and I just fussy cut it out.  Each of the pink hearts were punched with the same punch from Strawberry Slush cardstock and daubered with White Craft ink to soften the colors.  I did use a new CTMH die to create the row of gold foil stinkin' cute!

I broke my rule of never using a button, because this one just looked so cute:

This heart was embellished with a little Corrugated Element from the current SU catalog:

And this little one was embellished with a diecut from the heart border:

I love the soft vintage look of this!  And here are a couple of sweethearts:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Stamping that script onto your striped paper makes it so elegant, LeAnne ... so clever!

I also love the soft vintage feel you've created. I was so glad you took us on a tour of the details because I couldn't stop staring at it to see what was going on. Love the stamping on the background paper. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber again LeAnne. This is a beauty.

That is a great die. I think I have some hearts like that from a past PP kit. I wish I had that French Script stamp. You are right, the button IS cute! Nicely designed and created.

LeAnne, this is fantastic! You combined the challenges perfectly. I got some really great tips with this card. That heart border is lovely! Thank you for playing along with us at Retro Rubber and hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.

LeAnne, that background script stamp from SU is one of my most treasured ones, it always look beautiful but you took it to the next level stamping it onto that beautiful pattern paper.
And your hearts have that romantic, feminine touch, absolutely lovely.
Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, I will see you soon on the blog.
