Anniversary Card

Today I'm displaying the card I made my husband for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Of course, it's clean and simple - you know me. I especially love the sentiment.

I used an embossing folder for the trees - I'm not sure of the name.  I inked the image and kraft card base with CTMH chocolate ink. The sentiment is Hero Arts using white embossing powder. The die cut hearts have a coating of clear WOS.

I'm entering some challenges:  Brown Sugar Challenge #121 - Use Two or More Colors; Crafting When we Can #83 - Clean & Simple;  Fan-Tastic Tuesday #63 - Anything Goes Option Add a Tree or Trees; and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!

613 Avenue Create #99-Anything Goes-Option Use Subway Art

Our newest Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to Use Subway Art. Subway Art stamps have been around for quite some time, but you know me, I'm always late trying trends. I've had this CTMH stamp for over a year, and never used it. It's perfect for this challenge and time of year:

It's hard to see in the photo, but the image background is actually colored tan.  I used a Spectrum Noir Marker to roughly color the white card stock.  I like the look - it's uneven and gives the paper a textured appearance. I used CTMH Chocolate ink on the stamp. The leaves are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with SN markers.  I fussy cut them and outlined the edges in black. I added a few sequins for a finishing touch.

I'm entering these challenges:  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Thanks/Thanksgiving; Mema's Crafts November Challenge:  Anything Goes; Stamplorations November Challenge - Stamps and Layers; and Paula Holifield Crafts - Clean and Simple.

Have a wonderful week!

Gold Stars

Today's post is another grandson card. Here it is:

I really like the Close to My Heart Stamp.  I used it to add a personal message to the outside. Everything is from my stash.  The stars are stamped in Brilliance Gold ink. I coated them with some clear WOS.  The heart has a coating of Glossy Accents. Our grandson really liked the card...and what was tucked inside :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

613 Avenue Create #97-Anything Goes-Option RAK

Hi, Crafty Friends!  This week's challenge at 613 Avenue has the option to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week.  My card is for a friend of mine. I used QKR Stampede's Smiling Flowers. I think the flowers are just darling.  I recently purchased Spectrum Noir Markers and used them to color the image. Then I coated the flowers with my clear WOS marker. The border is a Fiskars punch I got a Marshall's over a year ago. The card stock and DP are from my stash. The sequins and sentiment (SRM Stickers) were gifted to me by my friend Virginia Lu.

I'm entering these challenges:  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Thinking of You; Sister Act Challenge-Anything Goes; and 7 Kids College Fund-Anything Goes.

Have a great day!
