Navy and Floral Wedding Card

Someone in my husband’s family is getting married next week.

I based my color and design choices on the invitation we received. (I looked it up online – the design is available from VistaPrint.)

I used the navy, the floral theme (I don’t have roses), and the oval shape.

Stamping on dark cardstock is a lot of work! Each flower or leaf was stamped first in white, then in at least one layer of color. I would not have been able to do this without my MISTI for repeat stamping.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Inky Antics, Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Stardream Metallics Copper, inks – Copic RV11, Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide Ink – Picked Raspberry, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Simon Says Stamp (rectangle), Spellbinders (ovals), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Night Sky Forever and Always Card

I wanted a blended background behind this die, and I found a “night sky” in my completed pieces folder.

Supplies:  Paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Strathmore Bristol, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – Taylored Expressions.


Mr. and Mrs. With Iridescent Blue Card

Has any company come out with a “Mr. and Mr”. stamp?  Or a “Mrs. and Mrs.” stamp? I have to make a few “wedding wishes” cards for my basket, so I have an option for any couple.

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Curious Metallics Blueprint, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
