Our oldest daughter, two of our grandchildren and my mother just pulled out of town. Over a month ago we found out that we were moving and I got busy working on the house, plus we had over two weeks of company already coming to town, and a family wedding to attend. (The house painting blog post I promised will post later this week!) I was also facing important deadlines for some volunteer work that I do. In addition, other family emergencies and events came up that could not be foreseen.
I apologize for the silence on my end here. I was already planning for a very busy summer, but when the move suddenly came up, that just cranked up my schedule past manageable. Normally I can plan for these things and schedule posts in advance, so I don’t leave you hanging if you check in often as I hope that you do. But the move and other surprises just took it over the top and I found myself falling far behind!!
But no fears, I’m back now with new projects and new ideas!
The card above is the one I made for my niece Danielle’s wedding that we went to last week. I made it specifically with Danielle in mind. Tomorrow I’ll show you some cool wedding decorations my sister made using Stampin’ Up! products and My Digital Studio. So, so awesome! You won’t want to miss it.
I used the new Smoky Slate ink to stamp the Mr. & Mrs. from the new Label Love stamp set. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to which I added a little dazzling diamonds glitter for a little extra special sparkle. And of course, I punched it out quickly with the new coordinating Artisan Label punch.
hint: I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to an extra tub of clear embossing powder and labeled it so I always have this mixture on hand.
Look closely. Can you see the glitter shimmer? Also, did notice the pearl accents? The adhesive-backed basic pearls makes adding this little embellishment super easy.
The card base is the new Stampin’ Up! In Color Crisp Cantaloupe with the clear mosaic-patterned window sheet from the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper. hint: I only applied adhesive and adhere the window sheet to the card base only where the label and ribbon would cover it.
To cover the ribbon on the inside I used a piece of gray polka dot dsp from a retired dsp paper stack. I also used this same dsp to line the envelope. Danielle loves polka dots and she used subtle polka dots on her wedding announcements, her wedding dress and other wedding décor.
The ribbon tie is a combination of a (retired) gray taffeta, white bakers twine and White Organza ribbon. One end is taped down under the left side and the other end is adhered with glue dots and knotted on the right.Here’s the card recipe: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up!
