Celebrations of the Heart
If you are hopping, you should have come here from Gloria’s Goofy Craft Spot
Today, I will be featuring the stamp set, Feelin’ Groovy
To fit, Alina’s sweet blog hop theme-of making something for a loved one, I made this card for my “true love.” He is my strength, he loves me at my best and at my worst- and he encourages me to create–what’s not to love about that?
I love vintage postcards- and this girl was found in the Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk, stack- I imagine these types of postcards being sent to soldiers during the Vietnam war- from their girlfriends and wives at home. So, though my husband is not a soldier– I still thought this card would be perfect for him!
The aqua paper is also from the On the Boardwalk stack, I added tulle and a hatpin, along with 3 adhesive backed pearls. I scissor-distressed all edges.
To get a duo color with my sentiment- I stamped it in aqua first, wiping off the ink on the word ‘love’ before stamping- and then I inked the same sentiment in a bronze color, wiping off the other part of the sentiment before stamping. You can also mask off with tape or paper– but, I find this a nice quick (er…lazy) way to get the same effect.
Meriah and Paula both have a project using the Feelin’ Groovy Stamp Set today too- so be sure to check out their blogs!!
And, the best news is–Feelin’ Groovy is part of the 12 for $10 sale– Find more information HERE about that!
