Wedding Card for Cousin 2017


Sharing the card I made for my younger cousin who just got married. It was a beautiful wedding and everyone had a lot of fun.

It was great to see all of the family and meet a lot of my cousins that I haven’t seen in years and to see all of their children too!

For their wedding card, I wanted it to be special, so I thought a Snow Globe would be something unique for them to have. I just wish that I had used a little more glitter for the snow.

I started off making my card by stamping the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

Used Copic markers to colour in the image and then I fussy cut around them to add them to the background. I stamped the top of the wedding dress and part of the veil again using glitter paper and added it to the image as well.

For the background I first cut out the circle from Strathmore Bristol Paper – Vellum Surface – 100 lb. using my dies listed below and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean for the sky and clouds and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn for the grass. Stamped sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is what the image looked like before I created the snow globe.

This is a close up of how it looked inside the globe with the glitter added to it.

Here is the finished card. I’ve added 2 images as my camera didn’t take a very good shot the first time. It’s a little dark in the first image.

Stamp and Sentiment – Peachy Keen Stamps – Matt and Janice Wilson – PK-1360, PKSC-27 March 2014

Die Cut – Marianne Design Collectables – Col1362 – Snow Globe

Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles

Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie

Sentiment on bottom of the globe – Peel Offs – Script Greetings – 2686-G.

Spectrum Noir – Sparkles – Red Berry, Spectrum Noir – Sparkles – Solar Red.

Used Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint to go around the top circle of the globe which I had cut out with white card stock.

Creatology – Foam Sheet for circle of globe to give it some height.

Creatology – Glitter

Vellum

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad


Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there today!

Sharing a card that I made for my dad who LIVES to fish! Saw these characters on the Marjorieanne site and just knew that I had to have them.

It reminded me of when I used to go fishing with my dad when I was younger.

Used Cricut Explore and and file “fishingwithdad_marjorieanndesigns039887” .svg cutting files for characters, scene and fish, on the front and inside of the card. Inked around all edges with various Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours and used Xyron Create-a-sticker to aid in putting all of the little pieces together.

Created clouds and background water with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Background paper – Gone Fishing PA-0909 – American Traditions Designs.

Card background is actually white, but it shows up as a light grey here.
