Inlaw's Anniversary Card

We've been preparing for my inlaw's 50th Anniversary party tomorrow. I've been busy shopping, planning, hauling tables & chairs, and cooking. I was also put in charge of purchasing, wrapping, and making the card for the group gift (a digital camera) from my husband, his siblings, and the spouses. I wrapped it in some bright paper and added some great Rose Red stitched wide grosgrain. Pulling other colors from the gift wrap, I came up with this quick card. I think it turned out very well. This combination of stamps and punches makes a great card for almost any occasion!

Stamps: Razzle Dazzle, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: YoYo Yellow, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Other: Modern Label Punch, Big Shot with Movers & Shapers Die, Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain, YoYo Yellow Marker, Dimensionals

Animal Stories Swap

I've completely fallen in love with Animal Stories and Family Phrases. These sets not only inspired the July Card Kit (still available - and you can get 20% off the featured stamp sets), but they continue to inspire more fun cards. This is the card I designed last night for a swap at the end of the month. I may even make up a bunch for swaps for Convention.

Stamps: Animal Stories, Family Phrases
Paper: So Saffron, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Confetti White, Rose Red, Tall Tales Designer Paper
Ink: Brilliant Blue, Chocolate Chip
Other: 1" & 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Word Window Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Rich Regal Brads
