Pearlized Bouquet Square Birthday Card

OOPS! Another bouquet card! I found a set of Gansai Tambi Pearl Colors (watercolors – the colors are all shimmery) on sale, and this bouquet was already stamped & embossed, waiting in my scrap folder to be the “test piece”.

I die cut the bouquet after it was dry, and popped it up on foam. You can see the pink background along the cut line.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, Clearly Besotted, paper – Canson Watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Avery Elle, watercolors – Gansai Tambi Pearl Colors, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

Lighthouse Paint Chip Anniversary Card

I went to Lowe’s last week, in search of Stainless Steel appliance cleaner/polish. Of course I brought paint chips home with me. The paint chips sat on top of my paper cutter, next to the computer for a few days. Husband asks, “are you going to paint something?” Wife answers, “no, I use them in my crafting.” Husband grumbles, “you use them crafting???”

(I went looking back in my card photos – I started stamping in the fall of 2002, and I have been using paint chips since at least mid 2005. Granted, Husband does not see everything card or project I make.)

So, of course, I had to use a paint chip on the anniversary card for aforementioned Husband.

The paint chip is a LARGE one, 3.75 x 9 inches. I trimmed off 1/4 inch both ways to make it fit my T-A-L-L card (finished size 4 x 9.25 inches…it fits into a business size A10 envelope).

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Lowe’s paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Kraft, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Smoky Slate, inks – Copic Boo, R24, R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (lighthouse, seagulls), Memory Box (clouds), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
