Friday Flashback: Dream Come True

Hey, it's the first Friday Flashback of the new year!  And I've got a lovely stamp set to feature today, it's Dream Come True, which is appropriate since Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  So let's flashback!

This is from way, way back before I was a demonstrator; we did this at a stamp club held by my upline.  I still think it's cute, though it would be better if the Whisper White ink pad was inked up better.

Made this one for my hubs when I was still pretty new to stamping, I mean come on that color combo!  Not working.  The other hearts are from Happy Hearts and the "love" is stamped with the lower case Whimsical Alphabet.

Ok, so here's my favorite creation with this stamp set, and it's a CAS card.  I think it took me two or three tries to get the stripey background bit and the "dream come true" stamped where I wanted them on the Shimmery White card base, but once I got that part done right I totally loved this card.

I made a little 8x8 new mom advice book for a baby shower, and this was one of the layouts.  The smaller hearts are from You & Moi, and I had fun looking up lots of baby quotes to go in this book.

So that's it for the flashback part, here's today's new card:

Now *there* is a color combo I can get on board with:  Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz, and Lavender Lace.  SU! needs some new mid-tone purples that aren't tinged gray (though Wisteria Wonder can be lovely).  I think SU! needs more purples, period, and maybe a great emerald green.  I'm excited to see what this year's new In Colors will be in a few months.

So that's it for today's Friday Flashback, hope y'all have a great weekend!  I gotta go either clean my house or study.  It's really a toss-up.

I LIKE the colors on that last card -- and I do like the pinks combo. LOVE Valentine's Day. But the heart is just one of my favorite shapes ever.

Your new card is absolutely lovely! This stamp set is not even familiar to me tho... and that flag is really cool!
