Floral Anniversary Card – Lilly Pulitzer Inspired

Lattice Medallion Background Anniversary Card

ANYWHO…I blended inks over the stencil, added a few pieces of foliage and a sentiment.

Gold, Aqua and Cocoa Anniversary Card

pool-cocoa-gold-anniversary

I had this greenery stamp mounted on my brand-spankin-new MISTI (birthday gift from Offspring3), mass producing a Christmas card project. OH.MY.GOODNESS. I have to say, the MISTI is going to make my mass production projects much easier! (It will calm my perfectionism and OCD tendencies!)

So, I grabbed a nice aqua and stamped twice (once, rotated paper, twice), then embossed with gold.

This color scheme reminds me of someone’s old “office” (cough, cough, *Irene*).

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Rubber Stampede, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Close to Cocoa (retired), Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Stampendous Gold Detail.

Wedding Note Card

mr-and-mrs-shell-note

This was part of the wedding thank you note project (red, white, blue, nautical) I am working on – the bride did not select this one. The embossing is more silver than it appears – I had on a royal blue shirt that was being reflected.

So, since it is not a thank you, I am throwing it into the “love” section of my card basket. A perfect small wedding card.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Esse Pearlized Latte, Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Brushed Gold, ink – VersaFine Black Onyx, die – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.
