Tag Archives: Anniversary card

Just a little something…

15 Sep

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I could make a really FANCY card for an anniversary.

Hmmm, is that something I could do?  Well of course!

The “husband” said, she is from a tropical place, and loves flowers and get this…LADYBUGS!!

Oh, I can do ladybug cards alright and he said I could go HEAVY on the ladybugs, so I did!

This is a Tri-Fold card, this is the front.

He wanted a large card.  So this ended up measuring 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

What do you think.  When I delivered it, he was all smiles and gave me such a nice compliment. He said he could tell by looking at the card, I really enjoy what I do.

He is right, making things, especially for others, yep, that is where it’s at!

I hope you enjoyed this special card, it really was quite a masterpiece.

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific week.

A love story with Gel-à-tins

12 Jan

I am soooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it!

I have gotten lots of new gel-à-tins stamps to play with.

Today I am using the stamp called Love Knots.

Here is a peak at the set.

My hubby and I will celebrate our 23rd anniversary this year and when I saw this LOVE KNOTS stamp, I knew I wanted to make an anniversary card for him.

I started by stamping and embossing the image in white on vellum.

I wanted to make it look like a tree with our initials carved in it…but this is the 2nd best thing I could come up with.

Oh how I LOVE RED!!  I think this all works so perfectly together!

I just adored working with this cute stamp and can’t wait to show you more things with the new sets I have to play with!  Be sure to come back and see what set I use next time!

We’d love to hear from you.  Leave a link in your comment if you’d like!

 I’d love to hear your ideas!
