Celebrating a Golden Anniversary

One of my favourites from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue is the elegant Sweet Soirée Suite, which includes gorgeous hand-painted florals in bold colours, with just a touch of silver.  I used this product suite to create a special 50th wedding anniversary card for my Mother- and Father-In-Law.  It would also make a great 50th birthday card too!

50th Wedding Anniversary or Birthday Card

Bundle: Cake Soirée Stamp Set + Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (wood: 145816, clear: 147627).  Ink: Powder Pink (144084), Tuxedo Black Memento (132708), VersaMark (102283).  Stampin' Blends: Pink Pirouette (144604), Calypso Coral (144045), Rich Razzleberry (144602), Old Olive (144597).  Card/Paper: Rich Razzleberry (119981), Powder Pink (144251), Old Olive (106576), Whisper White (106549), Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (145589), Gold Foil (132622).  Accessories: Shimmery White Embossing Paste (145645), Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (109129).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Stitched Shape Framelits Dies (145372), Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (145656), Banner Triple Punch (138292), Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Sweet Soirée Decorative Masks (145643), Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (144108), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

Cake Soirée Wood-Mount Stamp Set + Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (145816) - $151.00
Cake Soirée Clear-Mount Stamp Set + Sweet Cake Framelits Dies (147627) - $128.50

The focal point of the Sweet Soirée Suite is the Cake Soirée stamp set and coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits Dies.  Here's a close up of the gorgeous stamped, floral cake, coloured using the Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  I loved colouring this!

50th Wedding Anniversary or Birthday Card

Oh, and see the touch of bling trim around the cake?  That's the Shimmery White Embossing Paste, applied through the Sweet Soirée Decorative Masks.

I've mentioned that this product suite has touches of silver but, traditionally, a 50th Wedding Anniversary is a Golden Anniversary, so I needed to be a bit tricky, especially with the numbers from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit.  They are actually half white and half silver.  To make them gold, I pressed them into a VersaMark stamp pad, applied Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set.  I applied two coats to get an all-over gold finish.

Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit
Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit (145578) - $23.50

This fun-fold card design is perfect for highlighting a special, big-number occasion, like this one.  The circle at the top really pops!  When you open the card, the front flap lifts up and over the circle, and the bottom flap folds down to reveal your sincere message...

Valentine Gift Box & Card

Are you ready for Valentine's Day?  Here's a sweet, handmade idea... use the Sure Do Love You stamp set and coordinating Lots of Love Box Framelits Dies to create a gift set for that special someone in your life.

Sure Do Love You Valentine Gift Box and Card

Bundle: Sure Do Love You Stamp Set + Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (wood: 145965, clear: 145966).  Ink: Rich Razzleberry (126950), Whisper White Craft (145406).  Card/Paper: Rich Razzleberry (119981), Whisper White Thick (140290), Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (145580), Window Sheets (142314).  Accessories: Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583), Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon (145590), Gold Metallic Thread (138401), White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Embossing Buddy (103083), Heat Tool (129056), 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch (134365), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

Sure Do Love You Stamp Set + Lots of Love Box Framelits Dies Bundle

Sure Do Love You Clear-Mount Stamp Set + Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (145966) - $101.50

The big square die in the Lots of Love Box Framelits creates this cute gift box...

Sure Do Love You Valentine Gift Box and Card

To begin decorating this gift box, I stamped the large heart onto Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper in Whisper White Craft ink, added White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set.  After adhering the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front panel, I die-cut the heart and replaced it with a piece of Window Sheet, so there's a little sneak peek inside the box.

Sure Do Love You Valentine Gift Box and Card

And what did I do with the die-cut heart?  Why, I added to the front of a Whisper White Narrow Note Card.  Incidentally, the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes fit snuggly inside the Lots of Love Box?  How handy is that!

Sure Do Love You Valentine Gift Box and Card

I've used the both sides of the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for this card.  This paper is so gorgeous with the stunning brush-stroke colours and gold foil accents.  Here's another design from this gorgeous set of patterned papers...

I am a stay-at-home mum with three kids and a wonderfully supportive husband.  I love craft, but stamping and card making is my passion.  I also enjoy extending card-making and stamping techniques to create 3-D projects and gifts. 

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! a few years ago and I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and, soon after, became an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I now hold regular workshops in my home focusing on the fabulous papercraft products Stampin' Up! has to offer. 

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
