Hi again! I wanted to show you the anniversary card I sent to Stacey & Jono … but didn’t want to spoil the surprise … so here it is now! Yes … I did get to do some watercolouring … after saying on Tuesday that I had a “craving” to do some! This image is one I stamped when Julie A (Jono’s mum) was here for a play day from “Summer by the Sea” … and it was waiting for me to paint & mount!
Here are the details:
- Cardstock: SU! Watercolour Card, Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac
- Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, Almost Amethyst, Really Rust, So Saffron, Mellow Moss (Markers) Black Stazon Stamp Pad & Gold Encore Stamp Pad (phrase stamps)
- Accessories: Lilac Rhinestone Brads (set using 2mm (1/16″) handheld circle punch), Gold eyelets (set using Crop-a-dile), Vanilla organza ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Paper piercer & mat pack (for line of dots), 3mm (1.8″) handheld circle punch (for larger dots in scallop border) Stamp-a-ma-jig (used for placing the phrase stamp exactly where I wanted it!)
Did you notice … I have used another BRAND NEW STAMP SET … called “”Congrats” for both the phrases. This is a stamp set that is FREE during our January / February “Sale-A-Bration” promotion! Customers (who spend $100) & Hostesses (with workshop sales of $600) can earn this stamp during Jan/Feb. (For Hostesses: this is ON TOP of their usual rewards!) This great stamp set has 6 phrases that fit with the CONGRATULATIONS stamp … including baby, wedding, achievement, retirement, birthday & the one I used here for anniversary. It is such a GREAT set! One that I am sure I will use heaps!
I hope Stace & Jono like this one! I think it is quite elegant! More details to follow for Sale-A-Bration … this is just a sneak peek! Keep watching!
