Distressed Stamping

I am entering this card in the challenge at Stamping with Sami Challenge #8 - Distressed Stamping. I used Sami's new stamp set Sympathy & Care. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder. The leaf stamp is Hero Arts Leaf Cluster. I used various Tim Holtz distress inks for the background.

Anniversary Card

This card is being entered in Stampin With Sami #7 - Love Theme and Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday Challenge - Wedding Bells are Ringing. It would have been a great Valentines card but that's gone so I decided I will give it to my husband for our anniversary. I'm pretty sure he never looks at my blog so I should be safe posting it. I used SP & Company Musical Butterfly. This is a great stamp that can be used for lots of different occasions. I found the sentiment on another set and thought it would be perfect for this card.

Justin & Kelly's Engagement Card

I made this engagement card for my stepson Justin and his fiance Kelly. I am entering it in the challenge at Scrapmaster's Paradise. We are supposed to use bright red.

I am also entering this in Getting Cricky Wedding Bells are Ringing Challenge.

I used my Cricut and Gypsy to make the heart and to weld their names. Of course, I had to add the big bling for her ring! I embossed the heart with Swiss dots embossing folder and the hearts were from the Fiskar's embossing plates. They are nice when you make 6 x 6 cards.
