For Fun Challenge - Anniversary (but no bells or wedding cakes)

Metal plate says “my heart belongs to you”

The challenge this week at For Fun Challenges is to make an Anniversary card WITHOUT using bells or wedding cakes!! That was sooo easy with the awesome digital stamps that  The Paper Shelter provided us with.  The stamp I used is called Love in Venice and comes in outlines or a pre-colored stamp. I used the pre-colored stamp as I have come down with a terrible cold and haven’t even felt like entering my scrap room. Yes, I’m sick! Plus pre-colored stamps take the work out of it and all I had to do is find pretty paper and design the card. Got to love EASY!

Hope you will come play with us at For Fun Challenges as The Paper Shelter is offering a $20 gift certificate to the TPS shop to a random drawn winner. If you get a chance check out their store they have some really cute stamps and digital papers.

If you want to see the other awesome stamps we got to play with check out the other projects made by Design Team Members at For Fun Challenges.


1) For Fun Challenges – Anniversary project WITHOUT using Bells or Wedding Cakes!

2) Sweet Sketch Wednesday – Sketch 119– Use the sketch provided. I didn’t get this done in time but the sketch did inspire the card.

3) My partner in Crafting Crime Challenge #31 – The theme for this one is  TRAINS, PLANES, and AUTOMOBILES. and since we are just starting back we will keep it easy and allow any mode of transport!!

How about a boat!?! It’s a mode of transportation so I figured it worked!

4) Alphabet Challenge Blog -Q for Quick and Simple.  Our challenge for you this fortnight is Q for Quick and Simple.   Sometimes we want, or need, to make something quickly without a lot of fussing and embellishing.  So,  we would like to see work this week that hasn’t taken you hours to create with lots of embellishments etc, it can be literally a few minutes!

This card was easy! Printed the image on cream paper and cut into a square. Cut the patterned paper into squares. Added the heart, rick rack and metal plate from Making Memories.

5) Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #129 – Just Sayin! For this weeks challenge you will create a card with some sort of sentiment/words on the front! Super easy one this week! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!
