Stampin' Up! Sweet Conversations Anniversary Card

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I made this card for the challenges at Atlantic Hearts and Double Trouble...more about that at the end of my post!


I used the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set, which is retiring 6/30/22 and on sale for $9!!! I stamped the Hug Me and hearts in Poppy Parade Ink on a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Basic White cardstock and sponged it so that the embossed (Darice EF 2012) panel would stand out more. I adhered it to a Basic Black card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

The embossed heart panel measures 1 5/8" x 5 1/4". The Basic Black mat measures 1 3/4" x 5 1/4". The "Happy Anniversary"  is an outline sticker from Peel Offs. 

I wrapped a 6" piece of 3/8" Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon (retired) around the panel and adhered it to the card base with liquid glue. The Poppy Parade cut out and embossed heart was created with the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder and Bouquet of Love Dies, which are paired and retire 6/30/22. (That's a deal at $14.50! The retiring products are available while supplies last.) I adhered it to the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off the front, I adhered three black Classic Matte Dots.

My design was inspired by Atlantic Hearts Sketch #478.

AH is partnering with Double Trouble Challenge #114 - "YouNique Technique", thus my hand-stamped background and dry embossing!


Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have time to take a look at these two challenges. It was such fun to create with their help! AND remember, we are each unique!

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
