Personalized Anniversary Card

Hello, everyone! It's Lynnea Hollendonner and I used the Happily Ever After stamp set to create an anniversary card for someone very special to me - my husband!! I wanted to make him a simple card that would remind him of our own wedding. Our wedding colors were sunflower yellow and chocolate chip brown, so I played off of that to create an anniversary card for him.

How - To

  • Start by blending a portion of a piece of white cardstock with yellow inks from dark on the left to light on the right. 
  • Stamp and white heat emboss hearts from the Happily Ever After stamp set over the yellow ink and color with plain water for a subtle bleaching effect. 
  • Cut a diagonal strip out of the center of a second piece of white cardstock and mount on top of the ink blended panel with fun foam. 
  • Stamp sentiment from the Happily Ever After stamp set

Perfectly Blended by Martha Lucia

Hi there! Martha Lucia here with you!
This is a fun card that I made to show you how versatile can be the Perfectly Blended stamp set

The base and layer of this card is very vanilla card stock and I pasted behind of the second layer a entire piece of foam to make it more strong. I used the blow out technique and if you are not familiar with this technique, it is really easy. You only need to use your different colors of refill inks, apply the drops of ink over the card stock and blow out to let the ink move freely.

When the ink is totally dry, you can create more forms. In my sample, I just added some lines and dots with a gold pen and stamped in several places the chemical formula stamps that is included on some of the Caffeinated images.

I also stamped one of the funny sentiments included on the Perfectly Blended stamp set over a piece of very vanilla card stock and mat the sentiment with a contrast color.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you soon,

Martha Lucia

Foxy Dad-isms

Hello again!  Shanna here from Caffeinated Craftiness again to share a fabulous Father's Day card using The Rabbit Hole Design's slightly cranky, under-caffeinated, just waking up Caffeinated Fox! I really wanted to use this guy for a Father's Day card for my husband, and the Sassy Sentiments paired perfectly with him for a "dad-ism" card.  My favorite is "Here, hold my beer".  I picked my favorites and stamped directly onto my coffee sleeve after dry embossing with a striped folder.  Sooo many to pick from, but I narrowed it down to the 4 that reminded me most of him. 

The coffee-shaped card was die-cut, then after fussy cutting my Caffeinated Fox, I mounted him directly onto the sleeve so he can slide off and the card can open.  He was watercolored using my Zig real brush markers on Canson Mixed Media paper. I chose to paper-piece his robe with a small print I had in my scraps though, I like how it looks like a pattered fabric! Add "#1 Dad" to the mug and Voila! I plan on inserting a gift card or two inside for a sweet little gift from me and the kids.  That along with his favorite meal, and we will have a successful Father's Day in the books!

Well, that's all for today.. Guest Designing for The Rabbit Hole Designs has been a ton of fun this month for such a fresh, fun company...Thanks for stopping by!  If you would like to follow along with my caffeinated adventures, stop by my blog here and say hi!
