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.


This is opening up the front piece.


A close up of the color papers and ladybugs;)


This is the inside of the card with his message..


This is on the card side, that is on the left of the message area.


This is on the card side, that is on the right of the message area.


This is the back of the card.


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!
