Hey everyone! How are you all today? How is it Sunday already?! I am so not ready to go back to work tomorrow!!
Before I get onto today’s card, I just wanted to remind you that you still have time to comment on the Made With Love Blog Hop posts for a chance to win some amazing prizes!! Click here to get started!
Right, back to business! Today’s card is inspired by two sources.
Here’s a snap of what I’m talkin’ about:
Gorgeous right?! I *love* the vintage colours – something very pin-up about it!!
The second source was this amazing set of cards by Julie Ebersole. I *love* the way she took a completely new, modern look on vintage and completely owned it. After seeing this amazing eye candy I wanted a piece of that modern-vintage action too!!
With these two ideas firmly in my mind, I set to work and came up with this:
Fun huh?! I really love how this turned out!! Very retro!!
I started with a Hawaiian Shores card base and stamped the airmail stripes from Neat & Tangled’s On The Strip set using Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with Rouge Zing! embossing powder. Hmm, jury is still out on this embossing powder. I have mixed results with it, but it worked alright here!
I then stamped the triangle arrows from Mama Elephant’s Trifecta set in Versamark and heat embossed with Filigree White embossing powder. At this point I decided I wanted some splatter so I added some using my Heidi Swapp Colour Shine mist in Sweet Cherry and my Mister Huey’s Calico White mist. Fun!
I stamped the heart from my own stamp set onto Stamper’s Select White cardstock using Versamark and heat embossed with Zing! Rouge again, trimmed it out and adhered with a little dimension using Pinflair Glue Gel. I stamped the angled brackets onto Hawaiian Shores and heat ambossed white. The coverage was a little patchy, so I spread a little Mister Huey’s Calico White spray over it to make it more opaque. Onto the base they went using Pinflair as well.
I made sure to leave enough space on the right hand side of the heart to stamp part of the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Talk Bubbles 2 set. I stamped this with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then added the ‘Hello’ sentiment, which is part of one of the sentiments in the MFT At The Movies set. And that’s all there was to it!
Well, I guess had better get back to my craft table and create some more! I would love to know what you think of this card. Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!!
