True Love Anniversary

Hello everyone.  I needed to make an anniversary card for my sister and brothr-in-law and thought I would make it with Papertrey's Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fillers-Spring stamp sets and coordinating dies.  The base is Pear Pazzaz and stamped with one of the PTI's Twinkle background stamps.  The camera didn't pick up the shine, but I cut a transparency layer to place over the jar to make it look like glass.  The hearts were colored with Copic markers.  The dsp is actually a another PTI background stamp called Gingham.  Some real red gingham ribbon, a layer of real red punched with scalloped border punch and some bling on the tag complete this one.  Thanks for stopping by.

For a Special Occasion

Hello Everyone.  I know I've been pretty lame about blogging lately.  Things just keep getting in my way.  With that said, the card I am posting today, is for my nephew. This was really clean and simple and I love the way it turned out. Marina Mist and Bashful Blue were the colors used.  The shaped layers of cardstock were done using my Cricut electronic die cutting machine and an SVG file image that Penny Duncan generously shared.  If you haven't visited her blog, hop on over and look around.  She is one talented computer genius.  She has many SVG files that she shares and are ready for download and cutting. 
The cross and sentiment are from the Special Blessing stamp set. 
Thanks for stopping by.
