Happy Anniversary – Vintage Couple

  • Sentiment stamp – Altenew “Vintage Roses” set
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities – “Labels Seventeen”
  • Die cuts – Tim Holtz Ideaology “Snippets” and “Paper Dolls”
  • Magicals – Lindy’s Stamp Gang – Cattail Copper Brown, Ponderosa Pines Olive, and Red Hot Poker Orange
  • Distress Oxide inks – Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick
  • Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn

I used two different backgrounds to create layers on this year’s anniversary card I made for my husband. One background was the Distress Oxide layer that provides some subtle color. The brightly colored, sparkly background which I created using Lindy’s Magicals powder was then die cut for the backdrop for the married couple. I combined the Tim Holtz die cuts and stamped a sentiment for a focal point, making this a perfect card for the Happy Little Stampers monthly challenge to create with dies. Thanks for visiting.

  • Stamps – Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
  • Dies –
    • Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
    • WPlus9 -“Stackers: Hearts”
  • Patterned paper – Authentique “Beloved” Collection – “Beloved Three” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Baker’s twine
  • Red metallic paper – Paper Accents

I know! Valentine’s Day is long past! I made this Valentine for my Mom, but just didn’t get it posted right away. This is a fabulous stamp and die set from Poppy (and I have a discerning eye when it comes to penguins!). I colored the penguin and accessories with Copic markers and used the coordinating die set to easily cut them out. The greeting was also from the Poppy set. The patterned papers are actually both side of the same sheet by Authentique. I have a bit of the red metallic paper I used for the heart peaking out from behind the patterned layer to tie things together. This card perfectly fits the theme for the current challenge at Poppy: Hearts Aflutter. Thanks for stopping by.

My family is working through my birthday card stash pretty quickly, so I decided to make a quick birthday card trying not to think very much. I didn’t worry about challenges or using something from a particular brand, etc. So this is what I came up with and I like it! I hope you do, too. Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
