Inspired Wedding Cards

Happy 4th of July, everyone!!  This morning I made two cards for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge #500!!  This week's challenge is to find inspiration from the Green Wedding Shoes site......I loved this challenge so much that I made two cards!  My first card was inspired by this gorgeous bouquet.....loved all of the purple tones!  The wild rose image and quote from the ODBD set, 'Fragrance', and butterfly from 'Butterfly and Bugs' were embossed in gold on ivory cardstock; the flowers and butterfly were 'painted' with various shades of Glimmer Mist instead of inks....oh boy, how they shimmer in person!  The little tag, cut from the ODBD Custom 'Mini Tags' Dies frames a sentiment from 'Home Sweet Home', also embossed in gold.

My second card was inspired by this scrumptious wedding bouquet.  I used the same set, 'Fragrance', since it embosses so beautifully, but this time with white embossing powder.  Once again, I used Glimmer Mist for watercoloring.  Hind sight being 20/20, my camera would not pick up the white embossed quote on the ivory cardstock, so I sponged and pierced a circle around it to make it visible.  Not quite the card I had envisioned, but it was the easiest solution without creating another panel for the sentiment.

Triple Scoop Birthday

Hi, everyone!  I have combined four challenges (from Splitcoast Stampers) for this birthday card for my niece: the Clean and Simple Challenge (sketch challenge); the Color Challenge of honey, watermelon, and cucumber with the dessert option of summertime sweet treats; the Ways to Use It Challenge is to use sequins; and the Friday Free4All Challenge is to use any brads except round....the "enjoy" sentiment is a metal brad which I painted white then covered with pink glitter.  The ice cream image is from the North Coast Creations set, 'What's the Scoop?', layered over a doily from the ODBD Custom 'Doily' Dies set and the pennants from the ODBD Custom 'Pennants' Dies set. I didn't have the exact colors so I had to improvise with what I had on hand.

My first sample today features the 'Blossom' set, the ODBD Custom 'Beautiful Borders' Dies, and the ODBD Custom 'Doily' Dies.  The two rose images were stamped in bright blue (using masking), then the entire stamped circle was clear embossed.  Blue antique dishes have always been a fave of mine, so I tried to capture that look here, even if the camera did not agree! :)  To coordinate with the doily die, two border die cuts were trimmed down the center then matched up and the seam was covered by the ribbon. In addition to the ribbon, paper piercing and pearls were added for embellishments.

My second sample features the ODBD Custom 'Welcoming Window' Dies set, ODBD Custom 'Window Shutter and Awning' Dies set, ODBD Custom 'Flower Box Fillers' Dies, 'Home Sweet Home' clear stamps, ODBD Custom 'Vintage Labels' Dies, and the ODBD 'Shabby Rose' Paper Collection.  I decided to make an inside window looking out, but, as you've seen today with all of the other samples, that these new dies make it easy to make both inside and outside windows....so fun!!  I used the crocheted background pattern from the  'Shabby Rose Paper Collection' for my wallpaper and valance.  The bottom white panel was scored with a Scor-buddy to mimic bead-board, but it was hard to pick up the scoring with the camera.  The background of the outside scene was sponged in a smoky blue color, using a die cut from the ODBD Custom 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies set.  The sentiment from 'Home Sweet Home' was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Vintage Labels' Dies set....the same die which cut the white panel was traced onto the designer paper and trimmed by hand.

ODBD "Fragrance" Sneak Peek

Hi, everyone!  Today's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Melissa Stout aka mstout928....congrats, Melissa!!!  I chose this beautiful card to recreate today.  Since I do not have embossing paste, I decided to do the embossing resist technique instead, but keep the same card design.  The inset panel was stamped in Versamark with the wild rose image from an upcoming set (July 1st) from Our Daily Bread designs, called 'Fragrance', heat embossed in white, then sponged with pink, peach, purple, and colored the leaves with an olive marker.  A few hot pink pearls were added for a simple embellishment.  The two white panels were popped up with foam tape for dimension.

Father's Day Deer

Hello!  Yesterday, in the gallery for the Inspiration Challenge samples, I fell in love with this card by beesmom and knew that I wanted to borrow this design for two quick Father's Day cards for today. Due to a sore shoulder, I didn't feel like cranking out lots of die cuts, so I took the clean and simple approach. Two strips of scratch paper masking were adhered to the white panel; the strip was sponged with yellow, orange, and green; the masks were removed then the tree and deer from the North Coast Creations 'Deer Silhouette Greetings' were stamped in black, along with the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread designs set, 'Good Man'.  Paper piercing and baker's twine were the only additions. Done and done!!  Now I'm ready to make my Father's Day rounds and deliver the cards (and gift cards inside)!

Let Your Light Shine!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a design from the Miracle Suit site.....I loved this tropical pattern and used the yellow, aqua, and teal colors in my card.  I have used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs in the making of this card:  Hello Sunshine (scripture), Sunshine Blessings (smiley sun image), ODBD Custom Layered Lacey Square Dies, and ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies. The sun was stamped on a white panel, sponged with yellow, aqua, and teal; the scripture was stamped in black, sponged with yellow, then cut into sections and popped up with foam tape around the image. I stamped an extra sun and popped it up with foam tape and added some clouds sponged with aqua. I really love this scripture and am happy with how this card turned out, so I might cut the card base in half and pin the top half onto my bulletin board at work as a reminder to be an example for others!!

Brilliant Blue Butterfly

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is one of my Sistah Sticks (Our Daily Bread designs designer sister), Paula Bigelow aka laughingstamper.....congrats, Paula girl!!!!  I'm a sucker for any design in blue, so I chose this gorgeous card to recreate.  Once I finished the top panel, I realized that I didn't have much room for the designer paper panel underneath, so I decided to go with just one panel.  The 'Belles Vignes' image was white embossed on white, then sponged in blue.  The scripture from 'God Verses' and butterfly from 'Butterfly and Bugs' were both stamped in blue.  The butterfly was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Butterfly and Bugs' Dies, sponged with blue ink, then dotted with a white paint pen.
