Blushing Bride

I absolutely loved the colour challenge this week at Dynamic Duos and I combined it with one of the challenges at The Friday Mashup, to create a Wedding card.

The challenges:

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using “Hexagons”.
  2. Create a “Girly project”.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a “Girly project using Hexagons”.

My card:


As soon as I saw that Blushing Bride and Soft Suede were the colours for this week’s challenge, I knew I wanted to use the Love & Laughter stamp set. I also knew I wanted a white dress on a pink background, which meant breaking out my trusty heat tool, since I don’t own any white ink.  And  I do love to emboss! So I heat embossed the dress onto the cardstock, cut it out with my paper snips and propped it up onto the white background.

To me,  pink is a very  “girly” colour  (it’s one of my favourites!) and the added embellishments of flowers, ribbon and bling add to that “girly” factor. What girl doesn’t love a little bling – I know this girl does!

This is one card that could be given to the bride-to-be at her wedding shower, or given to the couple on their wedding day.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Whisper White

Ink: Soft Suede, Versamark

Stamp Set: Love & Laughter

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Oval Framelits, Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Organza Ribbon, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals


Print Poetry Mashup!

My post today is all about this week’s challenge at the Friday Mashup. I used one of my absolute favourite Designer Series Papers to create my set of cards for today, Print Poetry DSP.

The challenge:

My cards:

For this week’s challenge we were invited to “create a card using the sketch” or to “create a set of cards” or to Mash it Up and create a “set of cards using the sketch”.  I love this DSP so much that I just had to Mash it Up and create a set of cards using the sketch. They each are very different but also have common elements such as the embossed background, sentiment and embellishments. I really can’t decide which one is my favourite.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card stock/DSP: Very Vanilla, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Print Poetry DSP

Ink: Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple

Stamp Set:

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Large Oval Punch, 5/8″ Flower Trim, In-Colour Dahlias, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Basic Pearl Jewels

Fall Mashup

What a whirlwind the past month has been!  It’s been busy, but now that the kids are back into a comfortable, school / home routine, it’s time for me to get back to crafting.

I have many, many card challenges that show up in my blog reader every week and I always seem to run out of time to attempt each one.  But as soon as I saw the challenge for the Friday Mashup, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

This week we were challenged to make a “Fall Leaves” inspired project, or one using twine or to “Mash-it-Up” and do both.

I challenged myself to do both. My card:

I don’t have many fall themed stamp sets, so I knew I wanted to use the fall stamp from the Hostess Set – Four Seasons. I don’t usually use a lot of red when designing card but I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one and I love the results. I think I know exactly who the lucky recipient of this card is going to be!

Thanks for taking a look!

Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Brights DSP Stack

Ink: Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
