Just a quick note to let you know that I'm having some issues with my blog and I'm working on it. Not sure what is happening! Hang in there!
Isn't this the cutest guy! The stamp is by CC Designs and is called Flower Power! The background paper was created with several Cosmo Cricket DP's that I have cut into 2 inch strips. I then put them on a red cardstock diagonally with just a tiny space between the strips. I cut an eyelet lace strip from one of my border punches and put this on top of the gold dots print. The sentiment is by SU.
We have finally gotten a few DROPS of rain for the first time in over 3 months so this sure brightened my day. Dreary humid days just aren't for me so it's a good thing I live in Arizona where they are few and far between!!!
Have a fabulous weekend!
I have been wanting to do a Christmas card ever since I got this new set from Waltzingmouse Stamps!!! Crazy isn't it! Well, I stamped the image two times, once in red and once in green. I cut out the green center portion and popped it up. The red part is cut out with a circular nestie. And then there are a few more scallopped nesties behind that. The top and bottom of the ornament are part of an oval punch. Pretty clever ornament! The DP is by SU. So, now I have done my Christmas in July card! Have a great Friday!
This was such a fun card to make! I got these new Waltzingmouse stamps and couldn't wait to try them out. The rope design inside of the Nestie is a stamp they made to specifically fit the Vintage Label 3 Nesties. They have many designs that fit several different Nesties. I added a circle birthday stamp in the center by Denami Designs. The western scarf and star are both stamps by Dee Gruenig. The scarf was colored with various colors of Marvy markers and then stamped and cut out. The papers are by SU. I had some twine that I just cut various lengths and added under the popped up Nestie. This was a rather fun MALE card to make!!! Have a great day!
OK...tomorrow will be my last day of wedding postings. Time to move on. As you can see I spent countless hours working on this stuff. I've learned a lot. My advice to mother-of-the-brides...make the bride pay for all the deposits and when the wedding is over...you can reimburse her. If she cancels, she is out the money - not you! She is not as likely to cancel a wedding if HER money is at stake! Wedding vendors do not give deposits back!!!
More to come...
You would think this would be it. I tell you...there is lots and lots more to come!
I am deeply saddened to report that my daughter has decided to elope. I'm sure as crafters, that you know how much time, talent and love went into making each and every part of the wedding creations I have been telling you about for the past several months. The financial loss is tremendous as well as all the time spent trying to make her day very special. Needless to say, I have tons of beautiful wedding creations that I am pretty much stuck with. If you know of anyone who will be getting married and would be interested in purchasing some of the items I have made...pass along my info to them. We also have a beautiful wedding dress in a size 6. I can send pictures of that if you are interested.
So, today I will share a few of the items I have made. I will try to combine several photos on one posting so that I won't be posting these things forever!
The first photo is our "Save the Date" card. I printed everything on the computer and then stamped the butterfly afterwards. The ivory papers have a pearlized sheen to them - gorgeous stuff! The second photo is the wedding invitation closed and tied. The folders were purchased at Papers and More (online) and their service and shipping was outstanding!!! The edging is a Martha Stewart border punch. I used 2 different designs which is why you see two different ones in the photos. Again, it was all printed on the computer and then cut to fit the pockets. The pictures do not show the true beauty of these!
This is a bridal shower card for my daughter-in-law. They eloped this past December and have been very busy with his new career as a Navy Pilot. There really is no time for a wedding so they are having a shower and will have a "Blessing of the Marriage" after their next move. So, this is a card I made for her. The heart was heat embossed with the lavender embossing powder. I just cut a black tux to go over the heart and added a few black pearls and a bow tie. The ribbon is silk ribbon. The background is an embossing folder. Hope you like it! Have a great weekend!
