This card will be one of several anniversary cards I’ll need this summer.

pinwheel card

This card shape is from the Silhouette. The pp has been sitting in my stash for years. For the center circle I used a 3/4 & 1/2″ punch and added glossy accents to it. As I was looking at it, thinking hmm I’m not sure, hubby came in and said “that’s cool”. If hubby likes it it’s gotta be ok.

tulips, tulips, tulips

https://colorfuloptions.blogspot.com/2022/05/may-2022.html

After seeing Gayle & Johanna’s cards for this challenge I just had to give it a try. While trying to decide what to do, I came across this small piece of pp (perfect size for a mini slimline). The pp had been found online. Tulips were cut on the Silhouette. Tulips were cut from colored cs but I thought they looked too blah, so I used a stamp pad and sponge dauber to add a little color variation. I decided not to add a sentiment so I could use it for any occasion.

golden webs

https://twooldbatshalloweenchallenge.blogspot.com/2022/05/may-anything-halloween.html

For this card I got my inspiration from the lower right section of the inspiration photo. For the gold webs I found a piece of gold vellum in my stash. Not knowing if embossing vellum would work, I thought why not give it a try. Looking at the embossed vellum it seemed a little too bright so I used a cotton ball and black stamp pad to soften it. Large spiders are an old Sizzix sisslet die, small spiders are from a Quick Cuts die. Looking at the cut spiders I had the brilliant idea to cover them with silver Wink of Stella then used stickles for creepy eyes on the large ones. All spiders are popped up with Dimensionals.

Rudolph and trees

Today’s card will be entered in https://peaceonearthchristmas.blogspot.com/2022/05/peace-on-earth-challenge-15.html.

Background paper was found online, stamps and dies are from Stampin’ Up’s Santa’s Sleigh set. I used red Stickles on Rudolph’s nose and he’s popped up. Stamping is kind of hard for me because I don’t have much strength in my hands, but the Stamparatus makes it much easier. This was a very quick and easy card to make.

butterflies

Today’s card will be entered in JUGS Make a Tri-fold card. https://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2022/04/just-us-girls-wild-card-week-630.html

Cardstock is from a box of cs I bought at a local paper company several years ago. Pp is DCWV that I’ve had forever. Butterfly that is popped up is Butterfly Thinlits from SU. It’s a good thing the pp was a 12×12 sheet because I don’t do well with measuring and cutting angles. Here’s a link to the video https://stampwithlorraine.com/angled-tri-fold-card/

thinking of you

While perusing Pinterest I saw some quilt squares that I thought that might make a cool card. So, here’s my version of a quilt square

Card base 5×5. At first, I added the sentiment piece squared but then thought it would look much better cornered, kind of star shape. Embossing folder used for the corners is from SU, sentiment is from Gina K’s Dazzling Dahlias stamp set. Actually, I think it looks much better in real life.

This will be entered in Can You Handle The Pressure challenge https://cyhtp.blogspot.com/2022/04/anything-goes-embossing-with-twist-of_0267032586.html
