Anniversary Wishes!

Today is my parents' 32nd anniversary, so of course I needed a card for the occasion!

I was inspired by the upcoming mini. I saw a card in there and thought I'd try both the layout and colours. After I was done, it was just a bit too much, so I tried the same thing in slightly toned down colours.

Here's the original:Here's the one I'm actually going to use:

Supplies: Stamps: Heart Prints, Everyday Classics (papertrey ink)
Ink: Rosebud, Soft Suede, Fresh Snow, Ruby Red, Sahara Sand
Paper: Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, White, Pattern Pack III

Accessories, etc.: pop dots, scalloped punch, corner rounder

Some leafy goodness

I've made lots of cards lately, but I've been a tad lazy at getting them photographed and uploaded. Anyway, here is a design I decided to do in a few different colour schemes. It's quite a simple design. Basically I really wanted to make some of my own patterned paper with these leaf stamps. I added a little bit of colour using some small circle stamps.

Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Birthday Basics, Polka Dot Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Ocean Tides, Spring Moss, Terracotta Tile, Vintage Cream
Paper: White, Kraft, Vintage Cream, Spring Moss, Ocean Tides, Terracotta Tile
Accessories, etc.: Various PTI ribbons

Wordy Christmas Tree

The other day, I was looking at my Tree Trimmings Trio set and realized that there were several lengths of words. This got me thinking, perhaps I could make a tree using the holiday themed words. After a bit of playing around on scrap paper, I came up with this. I kept the design classically simple.
Stamps: Tree Trimmings Trio
Ink: Bamboo Leaves, Rhubarb Tart, Rich Cocoa
Paper: Vanilla, Textured DCWV cardstock
