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.


Watercolored Pink Gerbera Daisy Birthday Card

This one is for personal use.

The recipient loves bright pink (me, too!), so I watercolored a bright orange and pink Gerbera daisy and die cut it. I inlaid a gold daisy into the blue card stock, then popped the watercolored daisy up on some clear Kool Tak foam (so you won’t see white edges when you peep in to see the gold layer underneath).

A sentiment and a few sequins, I am done.

Supplies:  Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Pixie Pink (retired), Stardream Metallics Gold, inks – VersaMark, ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens Briwb (060), Green (040), Light Green (041), Orange (070), Pink (025), die – Essentials by Ellen, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Gold.


You Make Cold Days Warmer Dog Card

This Newton’s Nook set (Winter Woofs) is just too cute.

I was thinking I needed a “Christmas in July” post for the blog, but, ALAS, it didn’t turn into a Christmas card, and I didn’t post it in July!

Supplies:  Stamps – Newton’s Nook Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Shimmery White, Soft Sky (retired), Stardream Vista (guessing here!), inks – Copic 100, BG0000, C3, C5, E33, G03, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched hillside, stitched rectangle), Newton’s Nook (dog), Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), Simon Says Stamp (sentiment label), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white, Stampendous Detail clear.
