It’s a Flashback Valentine for Retro Rubber

RRBC07The Love you to the Moon stamp set was a great one to use for my revisited Valentine card for Retro Rubber challenge this week. There are some really wonderful sentiments that were suitable in that set. I hope you will find some time and play along! Here’s how:

•Use older stamps. We suggest stamps older than 1 year.
•Follow the challenge given for the time period.
•Post your creation to your blog or online gallery. If you use an online gallery, please use the Keyword RRBC07
•Link back to the blog using the InLinkz by February 13th
•Enter as many times as you like.

Here is the very first Valentine that I ever made!

ValentineI couldn’t find that stamp set so I had to improvise. Here is the card for the challenge. I used some new products from the Occasions catalog. One item that I was able to update for a new look was the heart-shaped button – I “blendied” it with the medium Cherry Cobbler before threading it with white Baker’s Twine. I really love how it turned out!

Love You to the Moon, Valentine

  1. Both cards are fabulous! Love the speech bubble on the updated version!

  2. How much fun is it to see the subtle changes in our stamping style! I love the re-creation! It is bold, colorful, balanced, detailed and modern… just what is expected from you, LOL!

  3. Love the 2 sections of card stock and dp side by side–great idea! Then adding emboss and images making a great card!

  4. Both are wonderful creations, I do like the re-do better as all of the elements are wonderful and add dimension to the card.

  5. Both cards are really beautiful. But I do like that remake just a touch better! Beautiful work as always!
