6th Anniversary

Today is our 6th wedding anniversary! Hard to believe it has been that long already lol!


This is the card I made for Mike.  I used the current sketch at Case This Sketch and color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  I used all Stampin Up supplies, including the Number of Years set that has made a few appearances on the blog in recent weeks!




The very vanilla layer was embossed with the Woodgrain folder but it’s not showing up too well. I thought it added a touch of masculinity to the card and it’s a reminder that we got married outdoors and took some of our pictures in a wooded area. 🙂


Here is the sketch~



and the color palette~



Have a great night!

Stamps: Number of Years

27th Anniversary Card

My first card in two weeks!


I’ve been working in my room a lot organizing stamps and pulling stuff out for Fall/Halloween use next month. I was supposed to craft on my days off last week and got sidetracked by several things.  Yesterday I ended up purging part of my scrap closet which resulted in piles all over the room and other parts of the house.  I am hoping to get my room in order by the end of the week so I can craft a bit easier.


Tonight I made this card for my mom and stepdad’s 27th wedding anniversary.  Since they live up the street, I got to make it a bit lumpy because I was hand delivering it 🙂   I used the current color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. Calypso Coral is one of my favorite SU colors so I had to do this challenge!


I got to use new stamps and paper on this card! In my last order I got the Number of Years stamp set and dies, and A Little Foxy dsp.  The colors of the challenge are in this paper pad and the heart paper was perfect to use on my card! I also got the new Layering Circle framelits, really love these! I can see me using them a lot.

2014 Card 133 - PS Sweet Hearts anniversary card


I was going through my stamp stash last night pulling out all of my Fall & Halloween stamps and came across this Paper Smooches Sweet Hearts stamp set.  Since it hadn’t been used, I thought it would be a good set to use on Mike’s card.  Sorry it’s a little blurry…think I need to clean my phone lens!


I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches~

Silver Anniversary

Today my mom and stepdad celebrated their Silver Anniversary!


I made this card and gave it to them last night when we celebrated. I incorporated the new Deconstructed sketch and the Celebrate Good Times challenge at Verve Stamps.  I was SO excited to find the doves stamp in the Verve Love Story set. My parents had a dove theme at their wedding. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.


2014 Card 121 - Silver Anniversary


It was a last minute decision to add the 25 in.  I found the numbers in MFT’s First Place Sentiments stamp set.  I am not a huge fan of heat embossing but I am really glad I took the time to do it for this card. I had to make it special and the silver embossing really stands out!


Here is the sketch I used~
