Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad!

Posted on

Hello from rainy Atlanta! It rained most of the day yesterday which made it a good day to spend some quality time in the Fungeon! We did go out of a nice breakfast and then Brian suggested a Thai restaurant for dinner called Annie’s for and it was delicious! I’m having a very nice time and not looking forward to going home already this morning, it’s been too quick!

On a happy note yesterday was my parents anniversary. I wanted a fun and different card so this is what I came up with. The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock and I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. I cut a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies and pierced the edge with the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack. I cut another oval out in Very Vanilla and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and the Amazing Family Stamp Set to stamp the words in Soft Sky, Pool Party, Costal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. The greeting is from the Express Yourself Host(ess) Stamp Set, I used my Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin’ Write Marker to marker the stamp and split the greeting. I then used the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies to cut out the ampersand from Crisp Cantaloupe and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few scattered Basic Jewels Rhinestones complete the card. I like the graduation of the blues paired with the Crisp Cantaloupe and a little bling makes everything better! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card for today. Have a good Sunday and I’ll see you tomorrow for my Paper Players card! πŸ™‚

  1. Very cool card to mark the occasion, Justin. Love all the elements.

  2. Lovely! Once again, you are the master of sprinkling jewels. The paper piercing adds a lovely touch. So wonderful to have you in the Fungeon yesterday. Can’t you stay a bit longer?

  3. This is a really beautiful card, Justin. Mom and Dad are going to love it. Glad you are having fun and have a safe trip home!

  4. adorbs! They’ll be delighted when they receive it! Rainy days are the best stamping days–especially with a soul-“sibling”! My sister and I get together for just that reason whenever possible!

  5. Pretty card…I know they will love it ! I am sorry you had rain down here in the sunny south but, as you said it gave you some fun time stamping with your friend . The colors in your card are really lovely ….. Well done ….

  6. Now see Brian – I would not have thought of separating the Happy from the Anniversary when they were both on the same stamp – AND – you spaced them perfectly. Great job!

  7. OOOOPPPPPSSSSSS – So sorry Justin! I meant to say Justin but since so many comments mentioned Brian I said Brian. So Sorry. Gettin’ old isn’t all that easy!

  8. This is such a beautiful card. Nice that you still have your parents. Rainy day here and feeling those weekend over blues too and I didn’t even go away and I am retired! I love how you describe your card before you post the picture. I like to imagine what it will look like, etc. Loving your double row of piercing, rounded corners and perfect stamping! Glad you had such a nice time away.

  9. What a beautiful card. I’m sure your parents will treasure it.

  10. I hope your parents love their card, Justin. I love the color scheme on this one.

  11. I also like that you split the happy from anniversary. And, your use of the popped up ampersand to connect both mother and father! Very Nice!!

  12. Surprised myself – love the card but normally hate crap cantaloupe! So, you’ve done a good job towards changing my opinion. Maybe I’ll give it another chance….x

  13. I never, ever, never would have thought to combine those two sets Justin. Such a beautiful and different card, Happy Anniversary to your parents and glad you had a super weekend, it will make Monday more bearable!!

    *Love* this card, Justin! Very pretty color combo and very clever use of the 2 stamp sets! The ampersand really adds to the overall design, too. Great design!!! And best wishes to your parents!

    I’m happy for you about your terrific visit with Brian, too!

  15. Awww, that is such a cute card Justin! I bet your parents loved it! Have a safe trip home!

  16. What’s a fungeon?

  17. Lovely card Justin. I especially like how you graduated the colors from top to bottom. What parent wouldn’t love a handmade card from their son. It’s a bummer your getaway weekend had to come to and end. Wait, there is always the next time and the next time maybe you can have Brian come to your home.

  18. This card and the one yesterday are so so beautiful. Glad you a such a good weekend and lotsa of fun by the looks of it. Have a safe trip back home.

  19. I love spending time with fellow crafters. Glad to hear your weekend was so cool! I love your card tribute to your parents as I am sure they did.

  20. OOOOO!!! What a nice card for Ma and Pa..they are going to like it, a lot!
    Love the large Label, makes a Big Statement!!!
    The best to your Parents! Especially to have a Son like you!!!

  21. Lovely! Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad Krieger! You’ve got one talented son!

  22. Beautiful anniversary card for your parents!!
