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.

Purple, Aqua, Navy and Silver Floral Birthday Card

This is a square card that I made for personal use. I was really happy with the color combination.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardream Metallics Silver, inks – Gina K. Designs Wild Lilac, Lawn Fawn Merman, VersaFine Clair Twilight, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, sequins – Darice, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.


Floral Anniversary Card

I had this image to color, but I didn’t have the Copic colors to match the vision in my head. Luckily, I could make it work with colored pencils.

This card is a little different than most of my “circle main image” cards. This one, I cut the circle hole into the layer of purple, so the image is behind the purple instead of resting on top. The silver frame is on top of the purple.

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardream Metallics Silver, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, pencils & blender – Prismacolor, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.
