You Are My Anchor Card

Recently, Simon Says Stamp was giving away the Gina K. Designs mini wreath builder template and stamp set with ANY order. So, I went scouring for a mini stamp set and die (less than $10 total). I wound up with this Waffle Flower set (I already own multiple anchor stamps/dies, but no sentiments that coordinate with an anchor). Great! AND I dug up a $5 coupon, which helped with shipping.

I blended distress inks over a stencil onto Strathmore Bristol paper – so smooth for blending.

Supplies: Stamps – Waffle Flower, paper – Curious Metallics Shadow, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Waffle Flower (anchor), stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, floss – DMC.

Sleigh Dog Note Card

I fell in love with this quilted tag die from Reverse Confetti. I really do have a lot of ideas for it – I hope you don’t get tired of seeing it!

I cut my sky & snow paper with the hillside die, then glued them both onto a piece of scrap paper, to be cut with the quilted tag die.

How are you doing on your holiday tasks? I am WOEFULLY behind. Ugh. When am I really going to learn to make my own holiday cards in July???

Supplies:  Stamp – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Shine Pearl, Stardream Metallic Aquamarine, Silver, inks – Copic E33, E53, R20, R29, 100, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Impression Obsession (snowflakes), Lawn Fawn (stitched hillside), Newton’s Nook (dog), Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPOP.

A Friend Like You Card

This is another great sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

I am not sure how I embossed the background (it was in my scrap folder) – I think I stamped in Deep Lagoon and then embossed with Silver Pearl powder.
