Lovely Anniversary

My In Laws have an big deal anniversary coming up so I sat down today and created a card for them using Forever Lovely.

I wanted a little bit of everything from the All My Love Suite on this card.  The All My Love Designer Series Paper comes in a strip of color along the left side.  I also added in a tiny bit of bling with the white glimmer paper from the Magic & Myths Glimmer paper on the clearance rack.

The sentiment is so gorgeous in Lovely Lipstick.  Lately this has most definitely become one of my favorite and most used inks.  The die cuts from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies add more color and dimension.  I love how beautiful all the products melt together and create an amazing look.  Did you notice the bit of sentiment cut out on Flirty Flamingo card stock?  This is from the Well Said Bundle on page 27.  Since this is an anniversary card, I wanted to change up the original sentiment to include the word anniversary.  Well Said is just the set and I must say that this bundle is a must have!!!

I did embellish the inside of the card.  As I said earlier, this is a pretty big deal, it’s a 60th anniversary!  So I pulled out a retired set, Milestone Moments to add in the sentiment for the inside.

Birthday Blooms becreativewithnicole

I used just the banner and sentiments to add a greeting to my BIRTHDAY BLOOMS card.  You may remember I did a similar card HERE that you can check out.  I had a different sentiment on the first one.

The flowers are all embossed in black and colored with an aqua painter and ink pads.  The sentiment coordinates beautifully done in Cucumber Crush and Archival Black inks.  The coordinating framelit made it easy to stamp and add this to my card.

I kept it simple and just added the banner with SNAIL instead of dimensionals.  It blends perfectly into the card!

Mossy Meadow

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring the In Colors that will be retiring soon.  Today’s color is MOSSY MEADOW!


Since I just got new stamps this week, I had to use one of those sets!  One of the biggies that was on my wish list was NUMBER OF YEARS.

Number of Years becreativewithnicole

I think this is just the most useful stamp set!!  Think of all the things you can do with these numbers and all the fabulous sentiments to go with them!

For this card, I got an early start on my anniversary card.  This fall will be 15 years and my husband’s favorite color is dark green, so this was a no brainer!

Mossy Meadow Number of Years

To make Mossy Meadow the main color, I used it for the card base and the background for the numbers.  For a pop of color, Calypso Coral was the perfect choice.  It goes so beautifully with the deep Mossy Meadow.

Blooming Anniversary

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is TOGETHER FOREVER so we are sharing WEDDING AND ANNIVERSARY cards.

Since I’ve been working with BIRTHDAY BLOOMS I went ahead and did a beautiful water color anniversary card.


I heat embossed the small flowers in white all over then did an abstract water color over the whole card.

Anniversary Blooms

I didn’t keep within any of the lines, I wanted the messy water color look to fill the entire card front.  I went back after the first layer of color was dry and added darker shading.  All of it was done with my aqua painter and my ink pads.

Birthday Bloom Anniversary

For the sentiment, I looked to the hostess set HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EVERYONE.  This set is meant for birthdays, but I love the sentiment “to my darling” and thought is was perfect for this card.  I heat embossed the words in white on Blushing Bride cardstock to add over top of the water color.  For a little bling, silver thread and sequins were added.

Now let’s get to the supply list so you can re-create your own BIRTHDAY BLOOMS water color card.


STAMPS: Birthday Blooms, Happy Birthday Everyone

INKS:  Versamark, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz

PAPER:  Watercolor paper, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz

ACCESSORIES:  White embossing powder, embossing buddy, heat tool, Aqua Painter, metallic sequins, Silver Metallic thread, dimensionals, Tombow multipurpose adhesive, SNAIL, paper snips,
