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

Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.
