Happy Anniversary

Hi Stampers, I only have one sibling.  Yesterday my sister and her husband celebrated 54 years of marriage.  She was fortunate to marry a wonderful man who to this day looks at her with love in his eyes.  I was her maid of honor at their wedding.  The color of the attendant dresses was peacock.  It actually looked like Bermuda Bay.  I wanted to make a special card for them so that is the card I am sharing today. I started with a base card of Bermuda Bay CS.  I snipped the corners with a retired punch.  I think it was called the ticket punch.  I added a layer of DSP from last year’s 6 x 6 all occasion paper.  I added a strip of DSP from the Noble Peacock Specialty series.  I used the Stitched Nested Labels and Whisper White CS for the image piece.  I used the flower from the Rare Blessings stamp set coloring it with light and dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.  The leaves are Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Best Days

Hello Stamping Friends,

It’s been a long time and I’m sure you don’t want to hear the whys and whats so lets just get on with business.

I CASE’d this card idea from a fellow demonstrator, Nancy Ferb Shares.  The stamp set Beautiful Day carried over into the current catalog.  It really lends itself to coloring with Stampin’ Blends.  I just was having a hard time figuring a good layout for a card.  Then I happened upon Nancy’s post and had to give it a try.  I started with a base card of Bermuda Bay.  I stamped partial images of the butterfly from the set on Whisper White card stock. I used Bermuda Bay and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for the wings.  The inside of the wings were colored with Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody.  I adhered the Image to a Basic Black background and then to the base card. I am planning something similar for the large flower which is part of this stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please let me know if you have questions or comments.  As always I would be happy to help you place an order so you can enjoy my love of stamping.
