Happy 57th Wedding Anniversary

By | February 15, 2016

Hi there

Not only was yesterday Valentines Day but more importantly it was my parents 57th Wedding Anniversary.  Congratulations Mum and Dad – you guys are such an amazing couple and have set a wonderful example for us (your kids) and many others who come in contact with you.

First up I’ll show you the card I made for them and then I’ll show you the card I made for Dad to give Mum.

Now you’ll have to believe me on this one as it doesn’t show up in the photo but I used the new Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush on the flowers.  It gives a nice shimmer and is way easier to apply (and less messy) than using Glitter – especially for small images.
Supplies:
Stamp Set – Number of Years
Card Stock – Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink – Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizzazz
Other – Basic Pearls, Wink of Stella Clear

 I don’t actually own the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit or stamp set but at last years’ OnStage event one of our projects used this suite.  The Heart Thinlit is cut out of Love Blossoms DSP then the flowers are stamped on the solid image using the Bloomin’ Love set.  Pearls were added later.

When I got home from the event I mounted the heart onto Basic Grey card and then onto a Blushing Bride card base so I wouldn’t loose it.  Last week I asked Dad if he had bought a card for Mum yet.  When he said no I said don’t worry I’ll make one for you.  I added the sentiment from the Number of Years set and voila a card was created.
Supplies:
Stamp Set – Bloomin’ Love, Number of Years

Card Stock – Blushing Bride, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink – Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, VersaMark
DSP – Love Blossoms DSP Stack
Other – Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die, White Embossing Powder, Pearls
