Wedding Post - Part Deux

I promised I'd be back shortly with another wedding card so here it is:
This was fun - I went with cream instead of white and it matched so nice with this American Crafts paper.  Sentiment is Verve and the usual combination of Spellbinder & MFT dies (love my dies!). 

Here's the inside:

Enjoy your weekend all!  Hope you're staying cool...I personally love the veggie section at Costco........ so wonderfully cold!!

It's Wedding Season!

I've had a few requests for wedding cards this summer and I love making them.  Love indulging in all the pearls, ribbon and lace.  Here's the first one:

Isn't this Pebbles paper gorgeous?  I used a mixture of Spellbinders & MFT dies, a little sewing, lace & flowers.  Sentiment is from Verve.

The inside:

Sentiment on the inside is Penny Black - I love the beautiful font.  Back tomorrow with another wedding card!

Just Because

I don't remember how, but I stumbled across a graphics site that shared images.  I chose this bird nest and today put it into a card.  I seem to be on a bit of a bird-kick lately......

I was meant to be making 3 wedding cards, but I had this sheet of 6 little birdnests that I printed and they were just hoping for a little Copic love. 

Sentiment is Verve, paper are various small pieces from my stash.

Back to the craft room to make my wedding cards........  lol.

Life is Sweeter when shared with Friends

Happy Sunday y'all.......quick post today.  Wanted to share another card I made using the Pebbles paper.

I coloured this sweet Mo Manning image with copics & added the Hero Arts sentiment in a Spellbinders Labels 20 die.  Lovin my MFT dies too - I used 3 in this card...  left border & both rolled flowers. 

Thanks for your comments - makes my day!  Off to grab some groceries for the week..........

Thinking of you today.

How about this little rustic flower window box by Stamping Bella?  Isn't it the sweetest?!!  I love it.  After colouring with copics I added glitter and then liquid pearls to the flower centers for a little texture.  Sentiment is Stampendous & cut out with Spellbinders Labels 20.

Now I am crazy over this new Pebbles paper. I love the small delicate print.  Plus you know that part on the 12x12 that has the info and the bar code?  Well on the opposite side it gives you a strip that will match both sides of your page.  In this card, it's the strip that goes directly beneath the flower embellishments.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone!  I'm pretty sure there's another Pebbles paper card in my very near future... like, I just need to make a coffee first!  lol

Isn't this a pretty verse?  And so true, eh?  I think this would be a lovely sentiment for a wedding card.  It's from a Verve set called "Love Story".  I paired it up with Just Rite "Kindness" and layered the Spellbinders Labels 20 & Fancy Tags 3 for the center.

I wanted to stay with soft colours so this Girls Paperie "Vintage Whimsy" paper was perfect.  I added a little texture with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and used a MS punch & Spellbinder Parisian Accent to give it a border at the bottom.

A little stitching, some ribbon and viola. 

A short post today... but wanted to pop in quickly with a card.  I don't want to lose the momentum of posting!!  =)

From my lips to Verve's ears...

It would be so hard to pick a favorite stamp line in today's market... simply because there are just so many "must have's".  I have my favorites at MFT, Flourishes, SU!, Kraftin Kimmies, Stamping Bella, Quietfire Design, Just Rite and of course Verve.  But when I look at which ones I use the most, it ends up being Verve.  I just love their beautiful fonts, clean lines and useable themed sets. 

So from my lips to Verve's ears.........

This sentiment is from a set called One Person by Verve.  Love it!  The paper is from American Craft,  Spellbinders used are Nesties 10 & 18 along with Fancy Tags 2 & 3.  How did I ever do a card without Spellbinders before??   I also used one of my all time favorite dies from MFT at the bottom.

So back to work for me tomorrow.  I've had a lovely break from work and did lots of walking, reading, napping and even a few cards.  Just total bliss.

Thanks for visiting!!!

Whoops - missed the month of June...

But I've got July right at the beginning!  Looking forward to making lots of cards and doing lots of posts... (right... famous last words).

I'm on a wee little bit of a holiday at the moment and took some time out yesterday to make a card when my friend Gabriela and I challenged each other.  I'm late in posting mine, but here we go.........

Sentiment is Verve and this gorgeous Fancy Pants paper is full of inspiration.  I only wish I had distressed the edges... but forgot.  :(

Wanted to quickly mention that I am missing out on posting on some of my favorite blogs... but I'm having a computer issue that needs looking into.  I try in vain to leave a comment and then when I do, I get bounced back to google log-in and asked repeatedly for my user name and password.  This is so frustrating that I just stopped until I can find a solution.  Only a very few blogs allow me to post comments.  Wanted to explain since I haven't been posting any comments anywhere recently.
