A Special Couple


This is the second card that I was asked to make for a coworker's wedding. We wanted to the card to have lots of space to write good wishes so the card measures 5" x 6.5".

It's best to use watercolor paper to create the wash of colour for the background of the flowers and stem. This is my third try to get the right look to it!

Supplies
Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Colours: Berry Burst, Early Espresso
Accessories: Color Theory Designer Series Paper, Watercolor paper, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Big Shot, Aquapainter, Berry Burst ribbon, Tear & Tape adhesive.

50th Anniversary


I was asked to make an anniversary card to celebrate 50 years! The final card size was 5" x 7" so that more signatures could be placed inside. And a big celebration means a bigger card too! Even made an envelope from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack using the Envelope Punch Board. My mom thinks it's one of my best cards, thanks Mom!

Supplies
Stamps: Lift Me Up (Congratulations)
Colours: Tranquil Tide, Gold Foil Sheet
Accessories: Hearts and Stars Elements, Lovely Words Thinlits, Hearts thinlits, Big Shot, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, retired number thinlits.

The Stick Fetching Dog in Blue

Catchy post title, eh? Did I get you to laugh? Today's page is all about Hoover and his stick fetching he loved doing in water. Only time he would swim! I love pages with lots of photos. On one hand it saves cards from the pack for other layouts and on the other hand it makes for a nice simple page. Simple pages are great when you have many photos to scrap.

Supplies
Stamps: none
Colours: Marina Mist
Accessories: Color Theory Memories and More card pack
