Golden Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 50th Anniversary to a very special couple…Louella & Lew!!  Louella’s one of my favorite people to stamp with!  A very sweet person with a never-ending sense of humor.  Could be one of the reasons she and Lew have been married for 50 years!

IMG_8274Came up with this design by following FMS178:  

I wanted another color besides gold, and Crisp Cantaloupe works well with the gold.  And this is the first time I’ve used Gold Satin Ribbon.  It’s just beautiful and very high quality!IMG_8275

Supplies Used:

  • Paper:  Crisp Cantaloupe & Whisper White CS, Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Gold Foil Sheet (5 1/2 X 3 3/4), Gold Glimmer Paper

I’ve been into vellum lately.  It’s something I usually don’t use much, but I really love the results!  Here’s another vellum card I recently made…IMG_8224

This weekend I plan to play with my FREE SALE-A-BRATION VELLUM!!  There’s still time!  Spend $50 & get free SAB product!  Contact me before the end of March to take advantage of this great sale!



Indescribable Gift on Vellum

The flower image on the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set is so beautiful!!  Perfect for stamping on vellum!



The idea for this beautiful card comes from Becky Cowley.  I stamped the image with Momento Ink and then colored it using Blendabilities.  You could also use your markers or Blender Pen.  I turned the image over to give it a softer look.

IMG_8227In the background, you can see “happily ever after”.  I’ve used Big News and Blessed By God for the sentiments and done some Gorgeous Grunging!
