Growing Up in the 50's

Hi. Oh my gosh, I was so excited when I found this stamp set! It so reminds me of growing up in the 50's! Doesn't it remind you of the Dick and Jane book series we read in reading class at school? This is a clear stamp set, which I don't use that much, but I have to admit, it stamped beautifully. I stamped the girl, then the wagon, and then you can add any of the other stamps to
the opening in the wagon and it was super easy! I stamped the grass, and used chalks for the sky. The sidewalk is just drawn in and colored. The cherry blossom branch is by Rubber Stampede, and I added the little flowers and distress stickles to make it pop. I distressed the edges to add to the vintage look. If you're a "boomer" or if your Mom is, you gotta love this set.
Until later................
