White Wedding

2016_06_14IMG_0594The wedding season is upon us so why not have a white wedding card!  This card is a simple layout starting with the textured background using the Stampin Up Softly Falling #139672  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   I then added the gorgeous heart cut from the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits #140621 and added a view rhinestones and a white satin bow.  I stamped the sentiment in Stazon ink onto a strip of vellum to create a completly stunning card.

I have been on a roll lately using retiring or retired products so that I can make room for more when the new 2016-2017 annual catalog comes out.  I have had a sneak peek and I must say there are lots of new things coming.  Today, I used the retired Something Borrowed DSP from Stampin Up as the background layer and then used the Rose Garden Thinlits and the coordinating Rose Wonder stamp set bundled items #140804 to finish off this classic wedding card.

Tent cards

2016_02_07IMG_0583

A friend of mine got married yesterday and a few days before the wedding she asked me if I could make her table cards for the wedding.  She wanted something simple and she did not want to have me spend too much time on it.  So since I had all the Bloomin Hearts Thinlits #140621  hearts cut for making my Valentines, I decided to use them for the tent cards.  I added some pink floral accents and the banner from the Stampin Up Bloomin Love #140643 coordinating stampset and added the lacey heart to a basic black card.  She was ecstatic with them and that made my heart happy!

Lettuce Celebrate

2015_11_20IMG_9198 When I saw the Market Fresh #138708 stamp set in the 2015-2016 Stampin Up catalog it was top on my list.  I love stamps that play on words and “lettuce” be creative.  Today’s card is one I made for a dear friend that recently retired from her 37 year federal government job.  The background is textured using the Stampin Up Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then added a strip of Farmers Market DSP #138448 and a few scraps of DSP hand cut into a banners and a piece of Washi Tape. The main panel is stamped using the all new and super fabulous Stampin Up Basic black Archival ink #140931.  I used an array of Copic Markers to color the image and bring the lettuce to life!

& its another wedding

2015_04_11IMG_6916 Today is the wedding day for my neighbors son Corbin and his beautiful bride Jennifer.  We will be attending the wedding today and so this is the card I made using the Stacked with Love DSP paper pack #137779 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.

This was a simple card to make because it was mostly about the paper with the Gigantic ampersand!  I used the color scheme of their wedding peach and green. I cut the letters using the Stampin Up Little Letters Thinlits dies #133730 and accented with basic rhinestones.

Congrats to the newlyweds!

Straight to the Heart

2015_02_28IMG_6977 Since it is still February, I decided to close out the month with a zinger.  The first card is the special valentine that Cammie made for me and the second is the one I made for her2015_02_28IMG_6932.. I thought it was funny how similar but different the cards were. Neither of us knew that the other was making the card.  Both cards used the Stampin Up Hearts Framelits #125599 and then used several shades of pinks to punch lots of flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack #133787 to embellish the heart.  Cammie added a stamped arrow and sentiment from the now retired Stampin Up Straight to the heart stamp set and I kept my sentiment to the inside.  For my card the heart was cut through the heart layer and the card base to reveal the embellished heart and sentiment on the inside.  We both textured the front of the card using Stampin Up folders (Arrows #132187 and hearts #137364) to complete these cute cards.

Last Stacked with Love

2015_02_22IMG_6939 Today’s post is the last of my Valentines using the Stacked with Love DSP paper pack from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  Once again, the layout is simple and features the fabulous background paper from the Stacked with Love paper pack. I added the sentiment on the whisper white cardstock and embellished a glimmer Sweetheart and a little heart punch with bling to make it sparkle.

I made a few extra of these and swapped out the sentiment with a congrats to use as a card for a few upcoming wedding showers.
