Stenciled Snowflakes Tag and Card

I got a new snowflake stencil from Gina K. Designs last week, and I combined it with a GKD wreath maker template that had smaller snowflakes. After the stencil inks were dry, I stamped Hero Arts snowflakes in VersaMark and covered with good old Iridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin’ Up. I finished with a sentiment and a few sequins.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky (retired), inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Broken China Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass, VersaMark, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Taylored Expressions (tag), sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powders – Stampendous Detail clear, Stampin’ Up! Iridescent Ice, ribbon – Ellen Hutson (gift with order).

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.
