Big News: Wedding Card

Here are the two wedding cards I made while I was supposed to be creating things with flowers for the blog hop the other day. I started with the one on your right. Happily Ever After is embossed in gold (on both cards) on vellum and then placed over Very Vanilla card stock. Remember to pre-heat your heat tool before embossing in every case but especially when embossing on vellum. The inside of the card is stamped with May All Your Dreams Come True. Happy Wedding Day in Lost Lagoon on Very Vanilla.

SUPPLY LIST: 
  • Stamp Sets: Big News, Everything Eleanor
  • Colors: Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla
  • Embellishments: Gold Emboss, Lost Lagoon 3/8" Silky Taffeta, Gold Metallic Baker's Twine, Vellum

Blog Hop: May Flowers


Well shame on me for not posting for a whole month! The cards in the mail have been piling up so I will post those in a day or so. While I was trying to get creative with the flowers I made some wedding cards for no apparent reason so I will post those soon too.

This month we're doing May Flowers since last month was April Showers. I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for flower stamps. Unfortunately, my creative juices weren't flowing in the flower department today. 

This first card I created a few weeks ago for a demonstrator meeting. It was CASE'd from Vicky Hayes. This was my version. Hers was much simpler. The second card I created all on my own. I was trying for a hydrangea type flower? There is glitter on the flowers but you can't see it in the photo. 

I can't wait to see what the other bloggers chose to do this month! Hop on over to Julie by clicking below:

Blog Hop: April Showers


This month's theme is April Showers so we hope to help you with some creative ideas that you can use for the different kinds of showers. I guess that just means Baby or Bridal because I can't think of any others. We'll see!

Here's what I came up with using My Digital Studio (MDS). It took me a way longer than it should have with all of the interruptions that I get (only when I'm busy of course). It also looks like this will be my only creation this time. Turns out showers are not my thing.. but I hope you like my clever "it's a buoy!"
