35 years and still going....

It's my parents 35th wedding anniversary tomorrow and of course I wanted to stamp a card to celebrate their journey so far! It's unlikely they'll visit my blog before I give them the card this afternoon, so I feel "safe" sharing it here with you. ;)

While the bicycle image is retired and no longer sold by Stampin' Up!, all of the other products I used are still current.

Once I had the layout figured out in my mind, it was a fairly quick card to put together.  The most time consuming part was cutting out the flower...and really, it took less than a minute! ;)

Here's a quick list of the products I used:

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake,  Basic Grey, Very Vanilla, Raspberry Ripple DSP (In Color DSP paper stack)
Ink:  Classic Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Basic Grey
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, Gumball Green 3/8” stitched ribbon
Tools:  Big Shot, Argyle Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits, Curly Label Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border,
Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Pedaling Past (Retired)

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!

Keeping it Simple

I needed a Father's Day card for my dad yesterday and because I was tight on time, I knew it had to be something quick and simple. I decided to use my new Argyle embossing folder for the main design.

I just love the texture of the embossed cardstock!

Cardstock colors I used are Crumb Cake, Basic Black & Island Indigo.  My embellishments include a Tempting Turquoise button (from our Brights Designer Buttons Collection), some white Bakers Twine and 3 of our Basic Black brads from our 3/16" Neutral Brads Collection.

Happy Stamping!

Birthday Wishes

It's my moms birthday today and so of course I wanted to stamp a card to go with her gift this afternoon. I wasn't feeling very creative though and couldn't seem to come up with much. So, I went surfing! Internet surfing that is. ;) I find a lot of inspiration from seeing what others have created...and sometimes I just CASE (copy and save everything) someones project when the creative juices just don't seem to be flowing.

 I came across a gorgeous shabby-chic card stamped by an amazing demonstrator by the name of Sandi MacIver. Her projects are gorgeous. I fell in love with her card as soon as I saw it and had most of the materials she used. SO, I shamelessly CASEd it.

The designer series paper I used is our Beau Chateau dsp - I LOVE this paper and we even have matching fabric right now!!!

I embossed the tag with one of our Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (which coordinates with our Beau Chateau suite!) and I just love how it draws your eye to the stamped images.

I didn't have any antique brads left (which is what Sandi used on hers) but I did have a retired "rose" embellishment that I thought would work well for the center of the rosette (created with my Simply Scored score board) and matched the Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon.

I "distressed" all the edges with our  distressing tool which is part of our Cutter Kit and then sponged around all the pieces to really accentuate the rough edges.

The small flowers were punched using the 4-petal punch from our Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack and I added a small pearl to the center of each one to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!
