Love card

I’m sharing this love/ wedding card at Sarah Hurley 365 blog. You can also check awesome inspirations from the team here.

June is the month for weddings and love so I made this card to celebrate the occasion.

I used Sarah Hurley’s Neopolitan kit and Documented365  kit, Be Mine stamp set along with some other supplies.

You can find how I made this project at Sarah Hurley 365 blog.

Congratulations

Joining in this week in Retro sketches #110.

I used Sarah Hurley‘s A Few of My Favourite Things Neopolitan Kit.  Love the soft neutral colors of the papers so I decided to use them in a clean and simple wedding card. I added some pearls to complement the colors and a lace for a soft touch.

I also stamped the last end of the triangle piece with Sarah’s sequins mini stamp from the February Documented365 kit.

Card compilation – celebrating life

I haven’t done much projects when I went on a short vacation but I think I’m making up on that one through today’s post.

I have three cards compiled into one which I did for this month’s  “A New Beginning” challenge at the Pretty Paper Studio blog.

First up is a Happy Birthday card, its to commemorate a new life whenever one is born. Just fit for the theme right?

I used the rocket stamp from My Mind’s Eye Boy Crazy stamp set and used the bearing piece to stamp randomly in the patterned paper’s circle design. It just ties the boy look on this card. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Pebbles.

To coordinate the envelope with this card, I also stamped the same stamp elements outside the envelope.

My second card is a clean and simple, Miss You card. This one ties with the wedding card that I also did earlier in the month for PPS. For newlyweds, having your other half away even for a bit feels like forever isn’t it? I think that’s how I came up with this card 🙂 I’m getting mushy eh?

Anyhow, I have the chipboard thicker in my stash and decided to make use of this project. I did a combination of papers from Fancy Pants and the mini note card from Webster’s as it just brings the right patterns and colors.

To bring some texture in the card, I normally emboss the card base to keep some dimensions to it, the same as what I did here.

birds

For my love birds, I used Lawn Fawn’s Christmas stamp set but only the bird and heart stamps. Isn’t it great to get a versatile stamp that can be used all throughout the year, not only for the holidays but also for non-holiday card? Love that. I did a mirrored stamping of the bird, this replicates the blue bird in the right.

miss close

A closer look of the sentiment thicker. The crisscrossed design on this alpha just adds more character into the chipboard which I also like about this element. I’m using the same thicker for the third card but see how I altered them.

For my third card is a non-traditional wedding card. A bright, cheery color than the usual gray and toned down colors.

I used Allison Kreft mini-folder in front of the card but rather than keeping the front panel as plain, I die cut the center with a small circle and added a vellum in the middle to emphasize the chipboard heart.

I altered the chipboard by embossing it with gold. This will also complement the yellow card base that I used.

Inside the folder, I also embossed the ‘I Do’ to match the heart outside. I also added the two birds above to give an impression for a couple. The bird stamps came from Lawn Fawn’s Christmas stamp collection but i was able to use some of the stamp elements form non-holiday card too such as this one again.

I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll see you again soon 🙂

Wedding card

I have not done much of wedding card so when I’m looking for the items available with me to create card theme, New Begin for January – New Beginnings from Pretty Paper Studio blog, I thought of using those pretty chipboard as main elements on this wedding card. I had fun doing this card and I shared a full tutorial on how I did this in the  Pretty Paper Studio blog.

I silver embossed the chipboard  which looks so much prettier in real life.

I added some pearls and additional shine with those gold foil sticker as sentiment.
