more than all the stars

Hello everyone!  Today’s card features the Little Twinkle set and coordinating Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper.  It is a quick and easy card, but still has some fun details.

love you more than the stars - Center Stage Stamping

The designer series paper makes a fun backdrop.  The focal point is the Night of Navy sentiment set on a fun Petal Pink watercolor wash background.  The angled piece behind is Vellum card stock that I brayered with Pool Party Ink.  It gives a soft hint on color to support the main panel.  The stars are punched out of Pool Party card stock with the Twinkle Builder punch.

While the colors from the DSP suggest this card would be for a new baby, it really could work for a variety of occasions – anniversary, valentine, thinking of you…

That’s a wrap for today.  Happy Stamping!

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!

25 years

Yesterday Brett and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  A quarter of a century – has it really been that long?

Ok, yeah, I guess the added weight and loss of hair proves that it has.   Now our kids are grown.  One is married, the other two are in college. We are entering a new stage of life.  Seems fitting for it to happen at this milestone.

I wanted to share the card I made for Brett.  I know that the 25th traditionally calls for silver, but I decided to make a card that represents us.

25th Anniversary - Center Stage Stamping

Wood has always been an important part of our life.  Brett was into wood working as a hobby when we were first married.  He has built benches, entertainment centers, and more for our home. (And it plays an even bigger part since we started Stamp-n-Storage!)  So naturally I pulled out the Wood Textures designer paper. (my favorite!)  I used the retired Large Numbers thinlits to cut out the 25.  I placed a bit of retired floral dsp behind and mounted the panel with dimensionals for added depth.

Happy Anniversary, Brett.  Here’s to 25 more!  I love you.
