Someone close to me moved to a new apartment a few weeks ago. This is what I came up with to congratulate/commemorate the event
Supplies: Paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Ruby Red (maybe? whatever it is, it is retired!)), Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, dies – Hero Arts (buildings), Memory Box (clouds), watercolor – don’t remember!, DYMO label maker.
I went to Lowe’s last week, in search of Stainless Steel appliance cleaner/polish. Of course I brought paint chips home with me. The paint chips sat on top of my paper cutter, next to the computer for a few days. Husband asks, “are you going to paint something?” Wife answers, “no, I use them in my crafting.” Husband grumbles, “you use them crafting???”
(I went looking back in my card photos – I started stamping in the fall of 2002, and I have been using paint chips since at least mid 2005. Granted, Husband does not see everything card or project I make.)
So, of course, I had to use a paint chip on the anniversary card for aforementioned Husband.
The paint chip is a LARGE one, 3.75 x 9 inches. I trimmed off 1/4 inch both ways to make it fit my T-A-L-L card (finished size 4 x 9.25 inches…it fits into a business size A10 envelope).
Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Lowe’s paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Kraft, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Smoky Slate, inks – Copic Boo, R24, R29, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (lighthouse, seagulls), Memory Box (clouds), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
