Cards, Fun Stampers Journey

Anniversary Card & 1st Can You Case It Challenge

Welcome back to my blog!

Life is still a bit topsy turvy as we wait to close on our new home in the next few days, but I had the chance to do a wee bit of creating in the past week.

Our oldest son & daughter-in-love celebrated their 5th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, so I had to get a beautiful card done for them. In the midst of final packing, I took out some of my new Fun Stampers Journey convention goodies to create their card.

I just love these new Decorative Heart Dies! I paired them with our new Lace Background & Pan Pastels in our Confectionary Days color palette.


I stamped the Lace Background in Clear Pigment Ink. Sponged on the pastels in Pretty Amethyst, Cool Pool & Pool Play. The Pan Pastels make it so easy to create a beautiful background. I stamped the sentiment from the retiring Branch Out stamp set in the corner. Out of Pretty Amethyst I die cut out the largest heart in the set & layered on the background. I didn’t want to overwhelm the card with bling so I added just a few Cut Rhinestones to one flower’s petals & added a Heart Sparkle Droplet to the center. I then layered the background on Pretty Amethyst & popped it up onto a Cool Pool card base. Pretty, elegant & quick.

My card happened to fit in with the Can You Case It Challenge to use your favorite die. This is my very 1st time participating in the challenge & once we are moved & settled, I look forward to participating more frequently. These hearts have already become my favorite for their versatility. I can’t wait to make many more cards & designs with them. As a matter of fact, I already created another card with them in my training meeting yesterday. Deb Valder, my upline, is on the design team for Can You Case It & we got to recreate a version of her card.

Stay tuned for updates as I get the new studio set up & plan our new classes. Please say a prayer, closing goes as planned for Friday. Thank-you!

Have a Fabulous Week & Create Something Wonderful!
