I'm Crazy for Emeralds

Can you tell? For some explanation, check out my post over at The Sisterhood of Crafters! Today's card is part of my challenge there - to created a wedding/anniversary/congratulations card with Emerald as the feature color! Green's my favorite, so I hope you'll play along and give it a try. And if you have it in by Friday, I'll give you an extra entry for my blog candy!

Plus, there very generous Heather from Digisparkle has put up a voucher for this week's winner!

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #67 for the layout and while you can't see much of the shimmer in the shimmer white paper, I know it's there ;) This was the first time inking up either the Verve Floral Symphony or SU! Well Scripted stamps and I do like the way they turned out. I used the Rock N Roll technique on the tulips and just love the saffron & pomegranate and the added dimension of the extra layers.

Stamps: Verve Floral Symphony, SU! Well Scripted
Paper: Garden Green, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Shimmer White
Ink: Garden Green, Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Basic Black
Accessories: Buttons, Green Ribbon, Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals


  1. Totally beautiful! I love the technique you used on the flower, and the font on the setiment is lovely too. I hope I get a chance to play along this week :)

  2. Tanny - this is STUNNING! The colors are brilliant - is that a satin ribbon that you've stitched over? It's gorgeous! And so smooth and flat - I'd have to go for the wrinkled look 'cause I'd never get it that smooth. LOL! Love the rock and roll technique on the tulips too. WOW - this is absolutely gorgeous! Eye candy, girl! Love it!

  3. gorgeous!! I love the colours and embossed emerald paper...lovely two-toned flowers as well :) Yummy wide ribbon...I'm hoarding my last bit of this :)

  4. Tanny, this is incredibly beautiful. My Ben has a May bday too! I have an emerald he gave me years ago and I cherish it! The sentiment is just as gorgeous as the flower! Great job as hostess this week! :-)

  6. love love love purely pomegranate with garden green. that satin ribbon is lovely....I still have lots of it in chocolate chip. Great toiling and stamping Tanis. Both beautiful sets. HOpe your week is going well and you enjoyed your May Snow Day!

  7. Yes, another lover of green. I loved it so much as a child I actually had a green shag carpet in my room (probably before you were even born LOL!) Lovely use of Karen's sketch and I love the two tone flowers. Great card :D
