Have you ever been caught without a card for the occasion? Recently we were invited to a 25th Wedding anniversary party for some of our friends and I didn’t have a card prepared for the special occasion. I decided I had better prepare anniversary cards for 25th wedding anniversaries with the Milestone Moments stamp set since more and more of our friends will be marking this milestone and, by the way, my husband and myself are not far behind either. 

Stampin' Up! Marbled Milestone Moments Elegant anniversary card. Fine supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

It is hard to tell in this picture, but the embossing is silver for the silver anniversary and the marbling is done in Sahara Sand. This very clean and simple card is so easy to create and you could make one up so quickly as you are “practically” walking out the door, not that you ever do that! 

The front panel is mounted to a Thick Very Vanilla card  base with Dimensionals to give it a bit of lift and have room for the ribbon to go around the card front.

We ended up finally having some beautiful weather this past weekend and I was able to work with my flowers and we cooked hotdogs over the fire. The kind of days I like to have in the summer. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Check out the following card with the Colorful Seasons stamp set is perfect for a great summer day.

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle with Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, and Pool Party. Life beautiful thing. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

The Colorful Seasons Bundle has so many possibilities! The chair is stamped in Berry Burst with Pool Party and Crushed Curry flowers. You probably cannot see it, but the flowers are brushed with Clear Wink Of Stella. The shimmer is so beautiful.

 I have only used the summer images so far, but there are so many great fall and winter options too. I wish I had time to sit in a chair like this for a bit. Maybe soon.

How can so many days go by so fast? This past week I ran a Lego Robot Summer Camp as a fundraiser for the FIRST Robotic Team I coach and every day seemed to go by before I could get back to my blog. We had a wonderful time builder the Lego robots and the last day, each camper had use a robot he built to pop a balloon mounted to another robot. I think they could have done that for hours. Anyway, I finally had a chance to work with the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste and make a video tutorial. 

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

Embossing Paste With Stampin' Up!'s Oh So Eclectic and Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Tranquil Tide. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

The Embossing Paste is so wonderful for creating different kinds of backgrounds. Probably the most important tip is to remember to wash your masks and tools quickly. The embossing paste dries quickly and will be difficult to remove if you let the tools and masks wait.

The flowers are from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. The Oh So Eclectic stamp is a 2 Step set and includes images that can layer to add dimension. Did you notice the iridescent sequins from the new Metallic Sequin Assortment? I love the 3 sizes and the new colors. I have a hard time leaving sequins off of projects.

I was able to quickly sneak in a bit of stamping time today between leading a Lego Robotics Summer Camp (fundraiser for the Robotics Team I coach) and my son Braden’s last soccer game. I am not sure why I think I have more time in the summer. I have been wanting to try out the new Marble Background Stamp so that is what inspired this card. The Marble Background turned out to be a subtle background to the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle With Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and happy birthday thinlits. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I decided to purchase the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set because of the beautiful Happy Birthday Thinlits Die included in the bundle. Did you notice the Basic Black die-cut I placed behind the Sweet Sugarplum “Happy Birthday”? I thought it would help the Sweet Sugarplum die-cut stand out a bit more.

I am finding that I also love the sentiments included in the stamp set and have used them to add to many different projects.

The flowers in the background are created with individual stamps and it can be a bit time consuming to plan out and stamp the arrangement. I did make it seem like I used more colors than I listed below by “stamping off” some of the images. You get a lighter color by inking up an image and then “stamping” it first on some scrap paper to remove some of the ink. Then, stamp on your cardstock without re-inking for that “stamped-off” color. I use this technique often.

My daughter has taken this saying from the Lemon Zest set saying to heart. She left today for a week of backpacking on Isle Royale. That is her idea of fun, you might read into that backpacking is not my idea of fun, trekking over a remote island surrounded by Lake Superior. She gets that from her dad.

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest With Pinewood Planks and Pear Pizzazz. Find Supplies at www.shopwithmystamlady.com

I absolutely love the look of lemons and have decorated my kitchen with lemons and fruit. So I was so happy to see the Lemon Builder Punch and the coordinating stamp set available in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I paired this set with the Hardwood stamp set and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to create this card. This would be a fun card to send off for encouragement. 

Along with the very cute lemon images, the set includes some very fun sentiments. Scroll down to see the stamp set and all the images included.

You may have noticed, but if you haven’t, my posting has been a bit more irregular. Brian, my husband, has been working out of town and it is soccer season. Between two of my boys, we have soccer games Monday through Thursday nights. The first soccer season is coming to an end, but then it is time for season two. So, in between soccer games, I have a Coffee Café card for you.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe and Coffee Break paper. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

The burlap and Corrugated Accents are perfect for the coffee theme. The coordinating paper, Coffee Break, is amazing and so much fun to use. I used the Polka Dot embossing folder to add the texture to the Pool Party cardstock so it would match the patterned paper.

I love that you don’t need to like coffee to love the Coffee Café bundle. I have all the products I used listed below.
