Sending Love your way...

from Guam, USA in the Pacific to Pittsburgh, PA. !! :-) And that's what this card front shows! :-) I found this background Cute Map stamped image in my stash. I remember this was from Stamping gathering at CTMH's consultant's house, about... 10 years ago... I had an idea using this mail box stamp & sentiment from Lawn Fawn but needed the MAP image on the background. I don't have a printer for digi image nor anywhere I can find nice DP here on the island, BUT very fortunately I found this image!:-) The background image was a bit larger but I cut off the top where it said Canada. I tried to place the mailbox "in the pacific", trying to not cover the stamped image of the words, "Pacific". I placed the envelope on Pittsburgh area. :-) I could punch those little hearts out BUT I stamped the hearts from another Lawn Fawn set, and put the strip of the red card stock with the images through Xron tape adhesive maker, and trimmed them, because I loved the shape of this heart to this card compared to the heart punch I had. I colored the WHITE background card stock, using 2 distress inks to look more like an "old map". I paperpieced the mail box, and also used the distress inks around the edges. I also "distressed" this little "envelope"! :-) At last, I used the twine to make it look like "wrapped" mail. :-)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day! :-)

eve,
So happy you loved our La Blanche video. I just wanted to let you know that at this moment La Blanche doesn't have a cleaner, but you should be able to clean up your stamps with any cleaners that do NOT have alcohol in the mix.
