Alex Menzlewski Cheers

Here’s a fun card using just 2 stamps. Alex made this and I think it’d be great for lots of occasions – wedding, drinks with friends, a birthday…

She stamped the tiny wine glass randomly in the background. She then used another piece of paper to stamp the big wine glass twice and made it look like it was actually “clinking”. She added some glossy accents to the big wine glasses and added some fun letters “Cheers”.

I know I haven’t written in quite a bit – I do have a few cards in my queue to post but life has been so busy. I hope this post comes out the same as my old ones, I’m trying a new app and using my iPad – seems to be a little easier than sitting in front of my computer.

I thought I would share this little card I made for my husband- we celebrated our 20th anniversary. Gosh, how time flies! He loves camping and the outdoors so I decided to use the Lake shoreline stamp. The card is a little long, so I actually stamped it once in the center and then stamped part of it on each side of the card. I used my watercolors to color everything in. I love adding a little texture to the background by lightly stamping text and dots and whatnot. I used a little bit of washi tape and got out my sewing machine added some stitching around the edge. He loved it. :)

She was Happy Lori Barnett Watermarked

Here’s a wonderfully happy card from Lori. I love the red and aqua. And using the hint of aqua in the background, framing the main image, really shows off Herbert’s white shirt. Sweet!

Lori writes:
Someone looks twitterpated! HA! Mildred and Herbert make the cutest couple, don’t you think?! Cracks me up just thinking about all the captions that could be used for this image. I used a sentiment stamps you might not think to use with it. The full stamp says “In her handbag was chocolate. She was happy.”  I just inked up the part of I wanted…and wallah! It works! That’s a great way to get more miles out of a sentiment stamp. Easy cheesy! The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The hearts have glitter pen painted on, then topped with glossy accents. What a happy couple!

Kim Klinkovsky - perfect frog

Here’s a cute anniversary card sent in by Kim. I just love how she re-purposed stamps that are actually for halloween! She added lots of fun layers – polka dots, a doily, a tag, a heart – wonderful backdrops to her main images. I love her color choices and the sparkly dress she gave Greta.

Here’s what Kim says:
June is the month for many brides and celebrations, me included. So, I wanted to pair these two stamps together to create an Anniversary card. Because you do have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your perfect frog. And I love frogs. I stamped Toad sister three times and cut out two frogs and the wizard’s hat separately. I colored them with Copic markers and made them sparkly with glitter pens.

Diane Kaufman - wine tag

How terrific is this project Diane sent in. She said that she absolutely loves this stamp! To create this she used watercolor paper and watercolor pencils. I believe she stamped and cut out Aunt Daisy’s dress. I just love the little flower embellishments and her use of ribbon is a great way to not only attach the card to the wine but adds a great detail!

Here’s an up close look:

Look at this adorable anniversary card from Monica. She found paper with oodles of little hearts and a companion paper featuring cheery flowers. I don’t know if she picked the papers first or if she colored the image first but either way it’s a perfect match. She’s always one for getting out her scissors and I like that she leaves the little bit of white because it really sets the couple off the card. She added her signature little red heart of course.
