Banners for You Anniversary

A good friend of mine recently asked me to create an Anniversary card for his wife.  She’s one of my best friends and stamping buddies, so he didn’t want to give her a store-bought card.  She’s also partial to blue, so I wanted to create something special for her.

I thought two hearts tied together would make a nice card, so I created this one.

Stamps:  Banners for You, Gorgeous Grunge (retired)

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Marina Mist

Ink:  Marina Mist, Basic Black

Dies:  Bunch of Banners Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits

Other:  Basic Rhinestones, Black Solid Bakers Twine, Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (retired)

My friend really liked the card!  I hope you to, too!

Thanks for visiting!


Basket Bunch Bunny Nest

We always have a bonus project at my monthly Cards and More Class.  Last month, we made this cute little Easter bunny nest.

I wanted something that would be quick and easy, and inexpensive to give to a group of people, so I designed this project myself.  I got the chocolate bunnies in a package of six at the dollar tree.  You can’t get less expensive than that!

This is made with a strip of 2″x 8 1/2″ cardstock, scored at 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, and 5″.  When assembled, this will even fold flat for transport, which is a big plus, as I’ve made 12 of these to swap at OnStage in Savannah this Saturday!

Stamps:  Basket Bunch

Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky

Ink:  Pear Pizzazz, Tangerine Tango, Blushing Bride, Soft Sky

Dies/Punches:  Basket Builder Framelits Dies, Layering Ovals Framelits, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Scallop Tag Topper

Other:  5/8″ Organza Ribbon, Blushing Bride Solid Bakers Twine, Easter Grass (non-SU)

I hope you like my creation!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
