This Day Forward!

Hello everyone!

I have been meaning to get this post up for a while now, and I’m so glad I found time today to do it. I had a workshop a couple of weeks ago with the special request of creating a wedding card. The only set I have in my many, many stamp sets suitable for a wedding card is This Day Forward. I loved this set from first laying eyes on it.148cc330c998dedb93ea3909069d9b76

As usual though the set had not yet seen ink! LOL……..until now that is. There was a beautiful box sample in the catalogue using this set and I decided to turn the same creation into a card. This is what I came up with.

A very simple but elegant design. I loved it.

I couldn’t stop there though, I decided this card needed a companion. I pulled out the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and went from there.

I was on Pinterest and found this lovely design by Stampin’ Club. It is simply gorgeous and thought it complimented the card well.

We also created one more card, a very easy card. I love those. I CASE’ed this card from somewhere. I thought it was Pinterest, but it wasn’t on my board, so now I’m not so sure. If you know who created this card please let me know so I can link them. Thanks! The original had a bigger butterfly stamp on it. That stamp was from the Best of 25yrs stamp promotion and the set was called the Best of Butterflies.

EDIT TO ADD- The original has been found, thank you very much Corinna Buchan. Melissa Davies from RubberFUNatics is the original design I CASE’d. Go check it out.

With Love

So as you can see we had lots of fun and I cannot wait to share the next workshop with you.

Thanks for dropping by!

Ornate Blossom Wedding!

Hey everyone!

Hubby and I have a wedding to attend today in Toowoomba. I am looking forward to it! I love a wedding…..I love LOVE! I suppose it’s a good thing that I still love my hubby and always will….I am sorry girls but no one out there is remotely better! LOL!

Anyway, I think black and white is traditional for wedding cards so that’s how I started, plus my wrapping paper is black and white and I am all about matchy-matchy.

Have a look

I pulled out my Ornate Blossom and Fine Flourish for the first time…yep that’s right you heard me…the first time! I have had such visions for these stamps and I have just not got round to it, until now and I decided to put them on the same card LOL! I also used the flourish out of Elements of Style in the bottom corner to ground/balance the card. The Ornate Blossom is embossed in black powder.

Well I couldn’t stop there I had to have a play with it in another colour. You know just  because I wanted to have an option! LOL! I chose Cherry Cobbler so I could play with my new embossing powder of the same name.

I think I love both, but I will be using the black and white one as it matches the wrapping. Which one is your favourite?
