PPA51- Another Wedding Card

My daughter, Jackie, created this wedding card with Whisper White paper....something classy about the white on white. She used the Finial Press Embossing Folder, stamped the gorgeous swirl from the Baroque Motifs in Basic Gray- she stamped it on another piece of paper first and then stamped it on the card so the gray is a lighter tone. The Baroque Motifs Stamp set is wonderful for stamping the envelope too! She then used the three flower punch and embellished those cute little flowers with the new Basic Rhinestones now available at Stampin' Up!! Yay!! Mr. & Mrs is a wonderful stamp from the All Holidays Set- also stamped in Basic Gray and punched out with the Large Oval Punch. A Basic Gray Marker was then used on the outside edges of the of the oval and stamped area to make it pop! The Organza Ribbon was also added..... oh I can't wait to use this lovely card! It's always fun to play at the PPA!

PPA51- Wedding Theme

PPA51 Wedding Theme - What a great idea! I've got a couple of weddings coming up in August so it was a perfect time to start creating! I cut an outline of a bridal dress and then embossed it with some bling or should I say Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and then tied a ribbon around the waist. This ribbon was from my daughter's wedding and we used it to tie bows around the there is something borrowed! Basic Black card stock was trimmed with the Eyelet Border Punch. For the Newlyweds is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes and was stamped in basic black, punched with the Oval Punch and then embellished with the Scallop Oval. I also added Pretty in Pink Hearts but you could use any color that would match the wedding party colors!
Something Old- me creating a wedding card
Something New- Newlyweds
Something Borrowed- the ribbon from my daughter's wedding
Something Blue- I used pink instead!
Happy Stamping!

PPA50- Color Challenge

Amour is in the air for the PPA! I would have never thought to use these colors together but aren't they lovely? I started with the So Saffron for the card base and then used real newspaper- my Newsprint Paper from Stampin' Up is on the way to my house but hasn't arrived yet! The Artistic Etchings did arrive and I just love it! I stamped the crown in Basic Gray on the newspaper. I then used the Finial Press Embossing Folder on the Basic Gray Paper. After Stamping the Eiffel Towel in Chocolate Chip, I then tore the paper and layered them on the newsprint. Amour was stamped in Chocolate Chip, cut and applied to the card by cutting the Stampin' Dimensionals in half. O La La, it's fun to play at the PPA!

A bee-utiful Gift Set

Jackie created this cute card, pillow box and bracelet. She started with the Big Shot and used the Pillow Box die and Basic Black Card Stock. The card is made with So Saffron, Basic Black and Whisper White Card Stock. She then stamped the flower in So Safron from the Itty Bitty Bits set. The stems were done free hand with the Basic Black Stampin' Marker. The bees are embellishments that were purchased at a local Craft Store along with the beads and bee charm. These make cute gifts for the birthday girl or the birthday girl can give the pillow box and bracelet to all the birthday party attendants!

Happy Birthday America!

Happy Birthday America! I started with the Big Shot and the Sizzix Stars that are on a long strip and cut them in Real Red and Night of Navy I cut the same colors in rectangles and layered them on Whisper White.
