A Purple and Red Anniversary

Before I started a blog, I took pictures of every card I made so I could use the old cards as inspiration for new cards.  When I made this card, I found myself doing just that!  I looked at the anniversary card I had made from a Mojo Monday sketch and created this one, using the same stamp.  The background paper was where I started things off with this card.  I bought this handmade Japanese paper from the Paper Source and played up the colors in the vibrant paper.

To embellish it, I added crystals, a paper flower from Close to My Heart, a fun brad, and some pretty purple ribbon.  Thanks for reading my blog!

Here’s another card I made with that same stamp: 17th Wedding Anniversary.

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.
