30th Anniversary Card


One of my cousin's asked me if I could make her a card for one of her friends' 30th Wedding Anniversary. So this is what I came up with.

I used Stampin' Up's Blossoms & Bliss Patterned Paper with Stampin' Up Purely Pomegranate cardstock, a miscellaneous Bazzill cardstock and Scrapbook Sally's White Shimmer cardstock.

To embellish the 6 x 6 card, I used Stampin' Up's Satin Ribbon, Close To My Heart's Pearls (discontinued), CTMH's Heart Thin Cuts, MFT's Stitched Mini Scalloped Rectangles Die Stax and Lyrical Letters Cricut Cartridge (30).

I used Close To My Heart's Party Pennants (discontinued) and Love Quotes (discontinued) stamp sets with Stampin' Up's Purely Pomegranate ink.

Birthday Card from Ontario


Earlier this month, a Close To My Heart Sister put a call out for her 7 year old granddaughter. She asked if any of her fellow CTMH Sisters would mind sending her granddaughter a birthday card with their state or in my case, province on it. Her granddaughter is huge into maps right now. So, I made this card for her.

I used Close To My Heart's Adventure Fundamentals Paper Packet - Willow with CTMH Willow & White Daisy cardstocks.

I used CTMH's Ontario, Bitty Birthday, Sending Smiles and Just for the Holidays (discontinued) stamp sets with CTMH Pear (discontinued) ink.
