Mr. and Mrs. With Iridescent Blue Card

Has any company come out with a “Mr. and Mr”. stamp?  Or a “Mrs. and Mrs.” stamp? I have to make a few “wedding wishes” cards for my basket, so I have an option for any couple.

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Curious Metallics Blueprint, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.


Watercolor Galaxy Forever and Ever Card

I had my watercolors out Monday morning, and this background happened.  (Note:  I made a second galaxy background on a lower grade paper at the same time, and it DID NOT turn out.  So I’m guessing I have a 50/50 shot at creating a galaxy background I like!)

The sentiment is TINY, from an old Papertrey Ink set. It seems to be perfect here.

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Arches watercolor, Curious Metallics Blueprint, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Spellbinders, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
