Wedding Invitations

Kristin and I had a blast helping my sister Donna make her wedding invitations. Aren't they beautiful? The design came from splitcoast. We used Chocolate Chip, Brushed Copper, Very Vanilla & Vellum Cardstock. We layered Chocolate Satin Ribbon from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini with Retired Vanilla Wide Organdy Ribbon and tied it with Retired Copper cording. The leaf stamp is also retired and it was stamped off on the vanilla cardstock with chocolate chip ink and embossed on the vellum and inside of the card with retired copper embossing powder. In Joy!

Swell News

I made this card for a friend named Gina Hutchison who is pregnant with her first baby (It's a Boy). Swell News is a retired set from Stampin Up! that I just couldn't part with. I love making paper dresses for her and this time I decided to make a skinny dress for the outside. I used Tempting Turquoise and Pretty in Pink with the Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper. In Joy!

Pumpkin Scratch-n-Sniff

This card is from our October Club Meeting. We mixed Pumpkin Spice Seasoning and Clear Embossing Powder to use on the Pumpkin from Stampin Up!'s Carved and Candlelit Set. The Pumpkin was stamped with Pumpkin Pie Craft Ink and then embossed with our mixture. The main card is More Mustard with accents using Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke (which we stamped with the weathered background stamp). The Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon was threaded using the handheld rectangle punch. We finished with a few copper brads and a sentiment from Sincere Salutations. In Joy!
