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.

Viking Valentine Card

Offspring3 found this stamp for my birthday…with one of the neighbor’s kids in mind. The oldest neighbor kiddo is 5, and she is a chatterbox. She has been a viking the past 2 Halloweens, and she even gets her Daddy to dress up, too.

I made dots with my Copic markers for the ground – I was thinking rocky, dirty terrain, with a little ice/snow mixed in.

Supplies: Stamp – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Red Glitter, inks – Copic B0000, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, , E00, E15, E23, E41, E53, E57, N4, N7, W3, W7, T3, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Hickory Smoke, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (hearts), stencil – Inky Antics, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.


Thanks a Latte Note Card

This really cute Avery Elle coffee themed set was one of the Christmas gifts – it is adorable. I did paper piecing with this (stamped the cup on the Oh Happy Life paper, and fussy cut out the cup body I wanted to use), and after I had glued it into place, I realized the matching die set comes with a die to cut that exact piece. (THANK YOU, Avery Elle!)
