November 6, 2015

T.G.I.F. to all of you!  When I saw the challenge at The Friday Mashup, I squealed with delight.  Nothing is better than reliving my 70's Days!  I love that decade!!!  All of my high school and college years were spent during that time frame.  YES---I am OLD and YES---I was a Disco Queen.  I spent many nights at The Regulator Disco in Bloomington, Indiana during my college experience.  

I skipped to my craft room and found this starburst stencil from Tim Holtz and created a background with my blending tool using Distress Inks.  (They are listed below)  I love the way it turned out.  I love color blocking, but decided this was a better backdrop for my card.  So, I am just using the Decade Theme for my card.  

The stamp set is from Unity Stamps--Girly Dots.  I thought it was perfect!  Peace and Love were all the rampage during this decade.  I stamped it with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added three black enamel dots and the card was finished.  I made this card for a young girl that is struggling with an eating disorder.  I thought it might brighten her day.  Please keep her in your prayers. 

Wishing all of you a fabulous weekend filled with LOVE and happiness!



  1. Fabulous card with the color blocking Claire. Thank you for joining us over at Friday Mashup and have a fantastic weekend.

  2. Claire, this is such a great card (and I'm delighted to hear you were a Disco Queen!! haha). Your background is so funky.. and I'd still consider it colour-blocking! Perfect sentiment and focal point, too. Thanks for sharing with us at The Friday Mashup this week.
