Happy Anniversary

5/22/20 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Howdy again! I’m back with one more post this morning before I jump in the shower and get my day started. Well… step into the shower… don’t need to chance breaking a hip by jumping in, lol! I’m playing again at The Outlawz Challenges and this card I’m sharing is for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge where Jan’s Digi Stamps has been our sponsor for the past month and everyone has been playing with this sketch for the past two weeks:

I created a hybrid anniversary card featuring Jan’s Succulent Bouquet digital stamp set. OMGoodness, I just L-O-V-E her images and this one looks so pretty against the blue pearlized cardstock and blue and white gingham paper!


Really loving the soft look of this design. I used one of my favorite paper pads containing gingham paper. I used a stitched mini scallop circle die to cut the image which I adhered on a hand-cut flag made from the blue pearlized cardstock that I used to layer the gingham paper on. I used a small bow die to cut two bows that I layered on top of one another for a little dimension, and added an iridescent gemstone to the center. I stamped the sentiment directly on the flag beneath the focal image. Since the cardstock was pearlized, I used StazOn ink and then applied the Perfect Crafting Pouch to dry up any wet ink so I could keep crafting without having to stop to let the ink dry.


I decorated the inside panel with the gingham paper layered on the blue pearlized cardstock, along with a slightly larger stitched mini scallop circle die cut on which I stamped the inside sentiment.


One more peek… really loving how this turned out and it’ll go to a very special couple later on this year! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
