Happy 17th Wedding Anniversary

Happy 17th Wedding Anniversary

My friends got married the day after we graduated from High School and they recently celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary!  Uh-oh – don’t do the math on that or you may think I’m old. 😛  I bought this beautiful Japanese paper at Paper Source in Portland and used it for the first time on this card.  The cashier told me we’re getting a Paper Source in Seattle in August 2011 – yay!  I layered coordinating papers behind the stamped sentiment (from Hobby Lobby and the swirls are from Impress Rubber Stamps), added an antique brad and some gems and then lined the edge of the card with my gold foil marker.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. I LOVE everything about this card! Doesn’t Paper Source have amazing papers? I can get lost in that store. I don’t have one by me either but I visit one every time I visit my family in San Diego. Maybe I’ll move to Seattle soon and that will be my store, too!
