Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Urban Tapestry CMS061" Anniversary Card

Continuing my play with Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils, I made this anniversary card.

I started with a piece of white card measuring four and a half inches square.  Over the bottom right hand area, blending up towards the top left I used "Sundance" Element Ink.  

I then lay the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Bouquet Layering Stencil THS143" over the top and applied "Russet Orange" Element ink through the stencil with a blending brush.

I used "Pine Cone" Versafine Clair ink to stamp the undergrowth area in the bottom right hand corner.  The stamp is part of one of my oldest Stampers Anonymous stamp sets, it's called "Urban Tapestry CMS061".

Once I was certain that the ink was dry, I used the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "String Layering Stencil THS004" with "Red Geranium" Versafine Clair ink.

I inked the edges of the card using Versafine Clair "Acorn brown ink and then added some red dots around the stamped area using a Posca Pen.

Finally, I stamped the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment which is part of a Hobby Arts stamp set called "General Greetings CS016D" stamped in Versafine Clair "Pinecone" Dark Brown Ink.


  1. Yet another beautifully layered design Sam

  2. Sam, you never cease to amaze me, this is delightfully different xx

  3. This looks so pretty in the deep red and with the yellowy orange through the Bouquet stencil, and the foliage in brown goes beautifully Sam, and the stencilled lines using the String stencil work really well, and love the red dots and finished with a lovely sentiment..this works brilliantly as an anniversary card. x
