Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary published on 9 Comments on Happy Anniversary

This week’s theme over at SU Only Challenges is Summer Anniversaries.  As I mentioned in the last challenge, I was married in June and just celebrated my 10th Anniversary.  Today’s card is the one I made for my husband.

If you are already a proud owner of the new 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog, this technique may look familiar to you (p. 181).  If you don’t have one yet, contact your demonstrator as soon as you can to get one!!  If you don’t have a demonstrator, I will be happy to help you.  This is an excellent example of why the book is as much for ideas as it is for showcasing new products!  I started with Crumb Cake card stock and embossed it with my Big Shot and the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  Then, using my Aquapainter, I watercolored with Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke ink (from the top of the ink pads).  It was so fast and I LOVE the results!  I distressed and tore the layer to show some Always Artichoke Textured Card Stock beneath.  The Crumb Cake Seam Binding was crumpled and then tied using a Neutrals Button and Linen Thread.  I created my own tag with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Sorry I was absent last week from much posting, our family was on vacation at the beach and stamping just didn’t fit in (too much wave jumping and boogie boarding to do!!).  I hope to get back in the groove a bit this week.  At a minimum, I will be back on Thursday with another ColorLab Challenge.  Until then, I hope you are enjoying your summer too!

Stamp:  Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper:  Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke (Smooth and Textured); Ink:  Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze; Accessories:  Big Shot, Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Linen Thread, Neutrals Designer Buttons, Aquapainter

All products are Stampin’ Up!


Wow, it doesn’t look like Cajun Craze in the picture. It looks so pink. This is such a beautiful card, you did a great job with all the distressing. It looks like so much work!. And the tag you made is perfect for this card. But it looks so pink . . . I guess the water really diluted the color.
