Vintage Valentine Postcard Inspiration


I was sifting through my husband's vintage postcard collection, looking for Valentines to display...

and I found a couple of sweet ones!





Both stood out to me, as I was delighted with the
double heart shaped motif! I can do that!!!




Here's my rendition of a double heart design.


I began with a brand new kit: "Stamp Simply Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Kit"! The kit includes this oh so pretty paper, as well as the May Art's Silk Ribbon (tied with a Bow Easy!) and Prima blossoms featured. It also has Kaiser pearls and rhinestones, plus so much more included! Check it out!

I used Spellbinder's Classic Heart and Scalloped Classic Heart dies, also available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, to create my heart shaped design.

A sentiment from JustRite's brand new set "Kindness" (also at Stamp Simply--easy...shopping all in one place!) along with chunky glitter, finish this design.

If you look closely, you can see where I added a bit of color on the Primas with a Copic Sketch marker...

I hope that you've enjoyed my postcard inspired Valentine!

Have a great week!

Those are some sweet Valentine's! Too bad they weren't a day earlier, our challenge on Stampin' Sisters in Christ last week was for vintage projects. :) Very nice, I love the touch of glitter!

Hi Deb! I've been watching the entries for The Shabby Tea room and I think yours definitely hit the mark for what I see weekly over there. Good luck and I'm crossing my fingers you get the position. Your work is stunning! I'd so love to see more each week.
