DG Wedding

One of my sorority sisters is getting married this weekend so I wanted to give her a special card. I had played with a completely different card design and it just was not up to the standards I was hoping for. My husband (man I love him) said that maybe I should focus on something Pink and Blue since those are our colors. Brilliant and inspiration hit me. I wanted to keep this card really simple and I didn’t want to add a sentiment (Shocker I know). So this is what I cam up with:

Using all Stampin' Up! products

I used the Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper to give the background an antique type of feel to it. I then used a sponge and some blushing pink to give it some texture. I didn’t want it to be even because again I was going for a more aged look. Actually I feel like it looks like the wall paper that you see when you walk into old antebellum homes in the south. So much history and charm there… exactly what I was going for and how I feel about my sister. The pink heart represents the bride and I used rhinestones to give it a necklace type of feel. I then used Bow Builder punch to make the bow.. in retrospect I shouldn’t have added the tails to it but I like it.

This card was a challenge for me maybe because I was having creative block (is that a thing??) but I liked the finished product and hopefully the Bride will love it too.

I hope that this Hump Day finds you well. I would appreciate your comments, any follows on social media, or even a purchase of all our lovely products. This is a great time to stock up on Designer Series Paper too since we have a buy 3 get 1 free deal going on that includes 2 different packs out of the holiday catalog

Thoughtful Branches Last call

We just received word that Stampin’ Up! is down to their final inventory of the amazing thoughtful branches set. Good news is you can still get it before it goes away for good.
Here is a card that I made for a friend’s wedding. It was very simple and I loved all the blue in the card. Great for her something blue!

It is hard to see in the picture but I did whisper white cut out in the background under the blue cut out. I used my silicone mat to apply my snail so that the adhesive would not stick all over the place. This card was really simple but just so lovely.

The Floral Boutique paper pack is just so elegant and something that you will want to add to your collection! This is also a paper that will be part of our bundled buy 3 get one FREE items starting October 1!

The Rose Wonder Stamp set has the beautiful Wedding sentiment that I used and the fun flowers that I put on the bottom.

I also made this card a very large on so that I could write a lot into it. My measurements are 5.5 x 6 inches.
