Wedding Card Done two ways

CCREW717SIPSo the Creative Crew has us doing cards with the Summer Lovin’ Theme and this challenge is called Step It Up.  What says Love more than Summer Weddings?  The first card is “plain.”  It is a simply elegant card.  White on White.  Stunning!

I used Copper Embossing Powder and the new Copper ribbon!  I also used the new stamp set called, Special Celebrations and I used the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets.

The “For a Special Couple” is stamped in versamark first (on vellum) then covered with the copper embossing powder.

CCREW717SIP-stepped upThe photo below is the stepped up version.  This is the same exact card but for a few exceptions.  I added a TON more pearls and a few purple flowers.  Plus (and this is really hard to see!), I added embossing paste and the “diamond” pattern from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  You will also noticed a Wisteria Wonder matte behind the top Whisper White one.  I am not sure which card I like better… But… I know where each of these cards are going since I have two weddings to go to this year, so far!

Bridesmaid Cards

thankyou-bridesmaidHere are a couple of cards for your bridesmaid!  It’s a great way to thank them for being a part of a day that you will never forget!   This is also completely customizable (that’s my new word of the day) to wedding colors as well!  Here I have, white cards with different fames, One is in Black.  The other in Gold.

I’ve kept the cards simple but we can always add butterflies, flowers, whatever you want!thankyou-bridesmaidgold

Wedding ideas…

Here’s another great idea for brides!  Check out this cute project!  bridesmaidbox bridesmaidThis pillow box has a string hanging out of it.  When you pull the string, the message comes out of the box.  This one says, Will you be my matron of honor?  Isn’t that cute!! I agree!

All of my ideas can be customized for the Bride’s personal taste in colors.  I just chose some popular color schemes.

Wedding Fever…

noteinabottleHere’s an adorable way to ask your bridesmaids and maid/matron of honor to be part of the wedding party! Pull off the cork, pull up the “note-in-a-bottle” and unroll the note!!

noteinabottle-messageThe bottles around just over 2″ tall.  So tiny and so cute!  It will be hard to resist becoming a bridesmaid when she unrolls her note….

I have more wedding ideas coming your way!  Stay Tuned.

(Just a note – I bought these little bottles years ago…. just now starting to clear out my stash!)

Another great combo

Here’s another fantastic color combination.  We didn’t have exactly the right colors for this one but this combination, though not quite exact, does work well here!  Tip Top Taupe, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pink Pirouette.  It is actually quite spectacular.  Now, this was a sample made by my partner in crime, Rebecca, she was the mastermind that thought to alternate the butterflies in the dress and on the box.  Tell me that butterfly on top of the box is not stunning!  Oh yeah it is!

Oh the Colors!

There are some beautiful color combinations out there for weddings.  This one is spectacular. Cherry Cobbler, Real Red and Basic Grey.  What I love about this box is the versatility of just what you can do with it.  Yesterday, we cut slats in the lid of the box with one of the colors peeking through.  Today, we cut out a hexagon with a beautiful floral pattern cut out.  Wait until you see tomorrow’s set.  WOW!

I embossed the floral stamp with clear embossing powder and I used the hearts from first box to accent the banner on the second.  Cool, huh?

Bridesmaid Gifts

aday2celebrateInspiration comes from EVERYWHERE! Lately, it’s been coming from my niece. LOL. She has a growing business called The Pretty Pout. She sells lip balms, lip glosses, lip scrubs and more. You should check it out! Anyway, we have learned that the lip scrubs will fit in the hexagon box! YAY!!  I have made a few samples of this box for her to show her what we can do. Over the next several days, I will be posting one of the combinations. I looked up “Trendy Colors for Weddings 2017” and found several really cool ones. I have chosen a few and translated them into Stampin’ Up! colors. Here’s the first. Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.

The only box I can really talk about is the Hexagon box. We used to have the Framelits that made the dresses (It was called Dress Up Framelits – Here’s an example of what I have done with it on this blog). While I have horded mine, keeping it for just such an occasion… You may not have them. For that I am sorry 🙂
