Anniversary Card with Penny Black Stamps and Die

Here is an Anniversary card I made using Penny Black Stamps and matching die.  The layout is one I saw on Operation Write Home (  

This card is 4 x 5.25 inches and was made with the following:

  • Penny Black Blooming Garden 
  • Coordinating Penny Black Die 

  • Copic Markers, G21, G24, G46, R81, R83, R85
  • Ribbon
  • Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals
  • Taylored Expressions Many Minis - Occasions
To make the card, I first stamped the poppy image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored the image with Copic markers.  I used the coordinating die to cut the image using my Cuttlebug.

I then stamped the sentiment and cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Die. Ribbon was attached to the card, with the sentiment over the ribbon.

This is a simple card I made using the sandpipers from the Stampin' Up Wetlands stamp set.  The card was inspired a card I saw on:

The card is 4 x 5.5 and was made with the following:

  • Stampin' Up Wetlands Stamp set
  • Memento Ink Tuxedo Black
  • Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles
  • Ribbon
To make the card, I first stamped the sandpipers several times on white card stock.  These were then cut using the Spellbinders circle die.  Using green card stock, I then cut matching scalloped circles.  The background paper was actually scraps from other projects.  Ribbon was added to give it a more finished look.

Get Well with Cricut Wild Card

I made this simple band-aid card for my husband who was recovering from surgery.

The card was made with the following:
  • Cricut Wild Card cartridge
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
I used the band-aid image and all layers from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge, cut at 6.5 inches.  I then embossed the band aid using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The card was then assembled, using pop dots for the center part of the band-aid.
