Love & Laughter Anniversary | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

HAPPY FRIDAY!

My parents’ Anniversary is right around the corner, and I’ve been ruminating on what to do for their card this year. It’s HARD to think up something for a couple to start with, further so when it’s my parents and I REALLY want them to like what I create!

OCTOBER Fan Club Challenge now LIVE! – Watercolored Autumn card | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

The October Fan Club challenge is now LIVE for all Fan Club members – and the gallery is already bursting with amazing creative inspiration!

This card was created for a recent Autumn birthday in our family. I was itching to break out the watercolors and free-hand some pumpkins (easier said than done for a newbie like me!), but had fun in the process and as always learned some things to keep in mind for the future.

I’m halfway through my time on the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen Team and still loving and appreciating every second of it. I sure hope you’ll pop in and see what the rest of the “Dirties” have been up to this month!

For more information as to why this is just a glimpse and not the full-on “real deal” I usually post, please check out this post where I shared some exciting news!

Blessings,

Chrissy

This card can also be found in my gallery on SplitCoast.

SEPTEMBER Fan Club Challenge now LIVE! – Anniversary Card | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

The September Fan Club challenge is now LIVE for all Fan Club members – and a full-on glimpse of one of my cards is featured!

This card was designed for my parents on their Anniversary. It’s always so hard to come up with something to appeal to both feminine and masculine tastes, so I combined the more “neutral” aspects of both (stately floral embossed background, natural hues like green and brown), and came up with this design. As usual, I found it HARD to put together, but the finished design turned out fairly acceptable in my opinion – and mom at least loved it! 🙂

To see it featured on the main page of Splitcoaststampers.com is an absolute thrill and honor – the likes of which I never expected (much like I still have a hard time believing they invited me to be on their design team!!!!).

Floral Anniversary Card for In-Laws | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Ever run out of creative mojo? Boy, I sure have as of late. But Monday morning, I realized I needed a handmade card… by, like, Tuesday morning.

Because there are certain people that simply must be given handmade! So what did I do? Well, panic at first, but then, after work…

Monochromatic Floral Anniversary Card featuring Altenew Academy AECP project | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

With a close coworker and friend celebrating her wedding anniversary soon, I wanted to spend some time this weekend creating something special for her to surprise her and her husband on their special day.

Lots of thoughts crossed my mind over the month or so I’ve been contemplating what I would design. Weddings and anniversaries are, to me, “soft” things, yet when designing an anniversary card, I never want to make it too soft – there is a gentlemen involved, after all!
