Anniversary Card Inspiration

Welcome Everyone!

Today I would like to inspire you with a little something I made for an anniversary.

As you know, I rarely make a card or anything else without coloring up a character stamp.  However, in the instances when I'm making cards for an older male, cute and adorable characters tend to not be the way to go.

Here I have made this 25th anniversary card using the gorgeous Magnolia Stamps Vintage Box, 5th Edition.  It has a very vintage, romantic, shabby chic vibe and as you may have noticed, I am getting a lot of use out of this large doily heart die.  I believe I've used it three times already this year...  The little bird and small feather are also from this set.

The list of dies and stamps I've used on this is somewhat extensive and so I've decided to list them below, along with pictures of everything you get in this Vintage Box collection.

I've used Maja Design papers, Vintage Photo Distress Ink and silver embossing powder to accent this card since silver is customarily given on the 25th Anniversary.

Don't forget to join our current Monthly Challenge where this month's theme is to Use Your Favorite Papers somewhere on your project.  Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you have a most wonderful day!

Painting Tilda

Good day and welcome back!!!  I'm really into making shaped cards these days and it's so easy with my Silhouette!  I've used some of the new papers from Polkadoodles that are in stock right now called "Colors of Spring" which is exactly what I was thinking!  How springy!  If that's not a word, it is now!  LOL!  So bright I love them!    

This is an image from the new Creating Collection Stamp Sheet called "Painting Tilda" who I've colored using my Copics.  The sentiment is also from this collection but all of them are super cute! 

A close up of the sentiment and this super adorable "Love Typewriter" die which is still available.

Well this didn't really need much explaining today.  You may laugh when you read this but I wanted to keep this card somewhat simple, which meant no more dies, or layering pieces.  Ok, even when I type it, I do giggle to myself so I hope you know what I mean.  

Enjoy your week and I hope you get to make some crafty time for yourself.  Also, don't forget to join in on our monthly challenge 'Favorite Papers".

Thanks for coming by!

Palette stamp, pencil stamp and heart needles stamp.

I have used Stamping Tilda  from the set and coloured her with 
Promarkers and Derwent soft pencils.

the flowers and leaves out is from Rosy Dot AC3 flowers and the Rosy
Dot Winter leaves
