Not One, Not Two, but Three Wedding Cards!

Friends of Dave and I asked me to create a wedding card for a wedding they are traveling to this upcoming weekend. They didn't give me much to go by or request anything specific so I created three cards for them to choose from....and guess what? They purchased all three of them!


The first one uses the So Detailed Thinlits Dies and the So In Love Stamp Set. Both of these items will be retired after tomorrow so if you loved them like I did, make sure you order them in the next two days.

 


I kept my card with a monochromatic blues color shade and added Rhinestone Jewels and Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon to finish it off.




The second card uses the Petal Burst Embossing Folder for the background and I added two die-cut hearts using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies. Isn't this pretty?




The colors used are Basic Gray and Smoky Slate which compliment each other perfectly. For this card I added Pearl Jewels to complete the look:




My final card was posted a few weeks ago and you can read all the details about this card HERE.

Merry Monday Challenge #250!

Good Morning Blog Readers and welcome to a brand new week and a brand new challenge at Merry MondayDeanne is our hostess this week and we are all creating rustic cards. 




Here's mine:




I'm not normally a rustic or vintage kind of girl so it took me a while to come up with something suitable. Cherry Cobbler to me is always the perfect color to combine with others to get the rustic feel.



I also sponged all of my cardstock layers after they were all cut & stamped. I think that adds a lot to the rustic feel of my card, don't you?



Visit the Merry Monday blog to see projects from my teammates and projects made by readers added to our challenge gallery!





Products Used:
Retired: Wrapped In Warmth stamp set & Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


HELLO SUMMER! It's our theme for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Is summer finally here where you live? A few months from now, Dave and I will be attending the annual Balloon Fest in our area so that is what my thoughts were for today's card:


I am so happy that the Lift Me Up stamp set and the Up & Away Thinlits Dies will be available in our new Annual Catalog. We get to play with this bundle for at least one more year. The same holds true with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder that I used for my background!


Make a card just like this one by following these steps & measurements:

  • Card Base: Pool Party Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Blushing Bride Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Emboss using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. Glue to card front.
  • Clouds: Cut both sizes of clouds using Whisper White Cardstock and the dies. Glue to card front. I cut a total of 5 clouds.
  • Balloons: Stamp the largest balloon using Pool Party Ink and the smaller balloon using Blushing Bride Ink. Cut both balloons with the dies and glue in place on the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add Pearl Jewels to each balloon.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Pool Party Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 3/4" x 3". Snip the end on the right into a "V". Trim the left end so you can slide it under the balloon and glue in place.
