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
  • Stamp Sets:  Big News, Regarding Dahlias, Bravo
  • Embellishments:  Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Circle Framelits #6, Small Heart Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits, Bigz Simple Numbers, Gold Embossing Powder

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!




What to do with the Hamburger Tag?

The new Hamburger Box Bigz Die has 2 cute tags on the end of the die.  One is a long tag you see here attached to the box,


and the other is a short tag that cuts out a heart in the middle.  It seems so short… and I’ve been trying different ways to use it.


Here I’ve added a strip of Tangelo Twist CS to make it a little longer.IMG_5007



Here’s another card:

IMG_5008Which one do you like best?  You see the snail adhesive showing at the top of the first card?  That bothers me!!  On this card, I only used Sticky Strip behind the tag, so it won’t show.
