a lifetime of love

My daughter Jessica and her husband Tyler celebrated their first wedding anniversary on July 22.

We spent this past weekend in Fargo, ND moving them into their first house!  I was able to hand deliver the card I made for them.

Lifetime of Love and Happiness - Center Stage Stamping

I thought Dandelion Wishes was perfect for this occasion.  I was able to capture the rustic style that was the wedding decor.  I love the Wood Texture dsp.  I stamped the trio of dandelions in petal Pink on the lower right corner.  I did w water color wash of Petal Pink on a piece of water color paper.  Once it was dry, I stamped the dandelion in Gray Granite Ink.  I layered it with a bit of Gray Granite striped paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack. The sentiment is stamped in gray granite ink on Petal Pink card stock and cut out with an oval from the Stitched Shaped Framelits.  The Linen Thread and wooden hearts tie everything together.

I hope Jess and Tyler have fun settling into their house.  I’m excited to see what is in store for year two!

My studio remodel is slowly moving forward.  We should be ready to prime the ceiling and walls this week!  Once primed, we can paint and then we can move my desk back in!  I am getting really excited.  I have been thinking about decor for the room.  I am planning a trip to Hobby Lobby this week to get some ideas.  I can’t wait to share photos of the finished room!

I have been able to get some stamping done at my temporary location.  Although it is difficult with a small fraction of the space I’m used to and many more distractions being in the center of family activity, it isn’t all bad.  I am enjoying the company of my daughter and son who are home from college for the summer.  Here is one of the cards I create at my kitchen desk.  I used the new Little Twinkle stamp set and coordinating Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper.

written in the stars - Center Stage Stamping

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and did a simple wash of Petal Pink with my aqua painter and ink refill.  Once that was dry, I stamped the heart constellation in Night of Navy and the small star cluster in Petal Pink.  I layered this onto small strips of the striped pattern paper and then onto the Night of Navy layer, which is adhered onto a thick Whisper White card base. the sentiment is stamped on Petal Pink card stock and cut out.  Finally I added a little Nigh of Navy bakers twine and a few rhinestones.  A fun card that could be used for a variety of occasions.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
