85th Birthday Card

Dino-Mite Birthday with Bokeh Background Card

Here is the last of the citrus blended backgrounds (for now!). After it was dry, I stamped circles with white ink. The white ink is really subtle.

Floral and Gingham Anniversary Card

YES, I got motivated after dinner Wednesday night.

I decided to save myself some time by using colored cardstock for the flowers and leaves instead of coloring the images.

Sadly, I am almost out of Orchid Opulence and YoYo Yellow scraps.

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, Rubber Stampede, Taylored Expressions, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Orchid Opulence (retired), YoYo Yellow (retired, textured version), inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (flowers, leaves), Spellbinders (circles), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
