Yetis’ Anniversary Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card I had on my mind for a long time and I could finally make it with the pretext of our wedding anniversary. Since I had Mama Elephant “Me and my Yeti” stamps I knew they were perfect for wedding or anniversary card. By the way, I think this stamp set is one of my all time favs!!

I stamped the yetis on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them with alcohol markers. The bouquet is from “Tiny Ninjas” stamp set. I used coordinating dies to die cut the stamped images. As I wanted to frame the two yetis, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched ovals” dies to die cut an oval frame from a soft blue cardstock nesting two dies. I also die cut an oval from Bristol paper and inked it with Tattered Rose Distress ink for a soft background. I repeatedly stamped “love + happiness” from “Sentiments from a Yeti” stamp set in a rectangular piece of cardstock using Mama Elephant Winter ink, which is perfect for this soft background.

I adhered all the pieces to a card base and added a bow tie to one of the yetis using the die from Mama Elephant “fba-Cat” dies. Last, I heat embossed the sentiment (from Lawn Fawn “Yeti, set, go” stamp set) on white on a strip of red cardstock and I adhered it using foam tape.

I love how this card tuned out! I hope you like it too!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

To manatee-rific years together

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my hubby, because some days ago it was the anniversary of our first date. Lawn Fawn “Manatee-rific” stamp set is perfect for this kind of card. Plus, this is one of my fav stamps sets from the summer release. Seriously, how cute are these manatees??

I colored the manatees with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used the coordinating dies to die cut all the images. I inked a watercolor panel with Distress inks using Hero Arts “Waves” stencil. I rotated the stencil because I wanted the effect of seaweed instead of waves.

I used Mama Elephant “All prettied up” dies to die cut the scalloped frame and then adhered the panel to a card base with foam tape. I used foam tape to adhere the manatees as well.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word “cheers”, from Lawn Fawn “Let’s bokeh” stamp set, and the rest of the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on silver. As a final touch, I added a few sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards and some sparkle here and there using Wink of Stella.

I’m entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Fun in the sun

I hope you like this card!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!
