Botanical Bliss wedding Card

I had the great pleasure of going to my cousin’s wedding last week-end and here’s the card I made for her and her husband! I wanted to have a nice and soft vintage look! I used the Beautiful new stamp set call ”Botanical Bliss”, that has matching Botanical Tags Thinlits dies. The details of the thinlits are really amazing!

To achieve the vintage look, I used as the background the Wood Textures Designer series paper and I stamped all around the edges with the ”Timeless Texture” stamp. I also stamped some flowers in the background to add a little bit of color and I sponged them with light pink and yellow. I used vellum at the back of the flowers cut with the thinlits to add some colors too. I colored the vellum with the Stampin’ Blend markers.

Climbing Orchids Wedding Card

Here’s another card made with the beautiful Climbing Orchids stamp set. I made this card for a colleague’s wedding, in the tones of white and yellow (I used So Saffron and Calypso Coral for the center of the flower). I also used some retired products like the flower print vellum and the wood accent “Congrats”. The little branch is from the “Seasonal Layers” Thinlit dies.

Colorful season wedding card

Today’s card is a beautiful wedding card I made for my cousin’s wedding. I used the new framelits Seasonal layers (matching the Colorful Season stamp set) to cut the flowers and branch. To add a little bit of pink to my flowers, I added a touch of pink with the watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to soften it. The birds were cut with the Bird builder punch (now retired). For the background, I used the Hardwood background stamp, with White craft ink on Crumb cake card stock.

Finally the greeting is from Essence de Rose stamp set and I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the stitched oval.

Technique Thursday: Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card

Welcome back to Technique Thursday (actually on Friday since I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday!)  Today I will show you how you can use the brayer and an embossing folder to create a unique background.

But first, here’s my card!

Beautifully Baroque (Christine et Marc)

Do you see how the background is embossed and colored? That’s very easy to do when you know how to do it!

First step is to ink your brayer (I used Pool Party on this card). Then roll the brayer on the inside of your embossing folder (top part, where the writing and Stampin’up logo are), in order to ink the top part. Place your White card stock inside your embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. The ink on the embossing folder will transfer on your paper as it is embossed! Really cool! For this card, I used the “Beautifully Baroque” embossing folder.

For the rest of the card, I used the Beautifully Baroque stamp with Coastal Cabana ink. I added some Daffodil Delight ink with the marker on the outer edge and with a sponge dauber (in the inside). I used the Oval Framelits to cut the 2 ovals.

The Beautifully Baroque stamp and embossing folder can be bought together as a bundle for $23.75. Only available until June 2nd! Click here to order today!

The inside of the card was also pretty “special!” I used the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts and the Label Pop ‘n Cuts die to make this 3D pop-up card! The “pop-up” is the same shape of the Deco Label Framelits, so that’s what I used to cut a beautiful piece of “Eastern Elegance” designer series paper. (That paper matches perfectly with the Beautifully Baroque stamp!)

The Card base Pop ‘n Cuts and inserts are on sale right now 25%! Click here to order yours! These items will also be discontinued in a few days only.

I would like to show you 2 projects I’ve made with my new favorite DSP: Modern Medley. These designer papers are all designs in Black and Very Vanilla. They are really “classic” looking and great for a wedding card, masculine card or Scrapbooking.

The first project is a Wedding Card that I made with the new Framelits Deco Label and the Modern Medley DSP. I used the stamp from Everything Eleanor and the greeting from Petite Pairs. The roses were made with a scallop circle cut in a spiral and rolled up. (also from Modern Medley DSP.)
