Wedding Day Bouquet

My cousin is getting married this weekend. He and his soon-to-be wife met during their college orientation and have been together ever since. They are such a sweet and loving couple and I’m so excited for them to get married!

For their wedding card, I knew I wanted to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set both for the image as well as the incredible sentiments.

I stamped two sentiments on the inside; I love how it captures exactly what I’d want to wish someone on their wedding day and does so in beautiful fonts!

To pull everything together, I stamped a single tulip to coordinate with the card and “For the Newlyweds” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set on the envelope.

I used tape runner to adhere some of the tulips and then I also used some dimensionals to give the card some depth.

Dream Big

Today I participated in The Color Throwdown. Here are the colors for this week:

I decided that using water-coloring and the new Pattern Party decorative masks would be a great way to pull these colors together (also I’ve been itching to use the masks and this gave me the incentive to do it). I taped my watercolor paper down to my desk and then taped the mask onto the desk over it to minimize things shifting when I was using the aqua painters. I cut thin strips of Night of Navy and Tempting Turquoise paper to put on the right side of the card to balance things out.

You’re My Anchor

Today I participated in the Tic Tac Toe challenge. I chose the top row to inspire today’s card: masculine, embossing, and wood.

tttc-challenge-board-002-1

For this card, I finally got to use my new Pinewood Planks 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used a brayer to ink up my embossing folder on one side with Early Espresso ink. I then ran it through my Big Shot on Crumb Cake paper to see the two tones of the wood grain. I heat embossed the anchor using white embossing powder.

Pals June Blog Hop: Pick a “B”

2017badge-denimWelcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B”, features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The Bike Ride bundle was the first on my list of products I just had to have from the new catalog. My husband and I love to go bike riding and there are so many fun stamps and framelits in this bundle that you can use it over and over with a different look each time. Today I used the bundle to make a birthday card.

I like to try and use different stamp sets together in the same card. Today I used the gift stamp from the Weather Together set on both the inside and outside of my card. I absolutely love the fonts in the Beautiful Bouquet set so I used that for the sentiment. I used Balloon Celebration and Bike Ride on the front of the card.
