Anniversary Card

Today is my 22nd Wedding Anniversary! (Can I really be old enough to have been married that long?) Neither Robert nor I drink coffee, but he has a cup of tea at work each morning to start his day off. While blog hopping the other day, I came across Scrappy Moms Stamps and I did something that I NEVER do-I looked at the stamps, loved them, and ordered them that day! (I always have to think about it for awhile and usually end up not ordering.) When I saw the cup of tea sentiment, I knew I how I was going to use it! The paper is all SU. (except the vellum) The tea cup was cut at 2" from A Child's Year, the steam came from Graphically Speaking and I used a Spellbinders for the tag. The inking was done with Colorbox Chalk ink and the sentiment was stamped in SU ink. The ribbon is American Crafts.

Color Challenge Card

I was trying to do the color challenge over on Paper Crafting Mania this week by following a sketch. I don't know about you, but my cards never look as good as the sketch! I either don't pay attention to all the little details or I just don't take the time to do them! But, here is the card that I did for the challenge. The colors were blue, green and white. My pattern paper is DCWV, the white card stock is SU. The ink and stamp are also SU. I inked the edges with chalk ink from Colorbox. The flower is Prima and the ribbon is American Crafts. I used Storybook to cut the shapes.

Card Sketch Wednesday

This is the card that I made for the card sketch at Paper Crafting Mania. I used a double sided piece of paper that I got at Costco. The card stock, ribbon and ink are all SU and the stamp is CTMH.

Scratch & Sniff Instructions


We stamped the whole image as second generation stamps. Then we used the rock & roll method around the edges of the cherries. Next, you mix 1 tsp of Kool Aid to 1 1/4 tsp of embossing powder. You stamp the cherries with Versamark then use your mixture just like you would use regular embossing powder. The image will change colors with the heat, you'll be able to tell when it is ready. Then you just scratch and sniff! We used cherries, but you can use any flavor of Kool Aid!

On Saturday, Tracy had a little treat for us. It was so cute! I just had to show you! All the products were CTMH.

Scratch & Sniff Card

I know, it's been a while. I have excuses like my A/C was out for one week and I just haven't done anything.... However, I have been working on sorting all my Disney pictures! I went through and picked which photos I want on what page and now as I print them, they are ready to be laid out pages (the preplanning process) then I can go back and actually make the pages! The good news is I'm finally finished sorting! The bad news is I now have 92 pages to do!

I went to a CTMH class on Saturday and we made a scratch and sniff card! It was really neat! Here is the card and the cherries are what you scratch! Since this was done in a class, it is not my design! I just did what I was told! All products are CTMH!

This month at Paper Crafting Mania, we swapped tags instead of cards! The tag was to be summer themed. This is the tag that I made. I used CM paper. All images were cut with Everyday Paper Dolls and inked with Colorbox chalk ink. The "sand" was hand torn. The face is a Peachy Keen stamp and the sun is a sticker from CM. I cut the actual tag from Very Merry Tags.
