Forever Blossoms Engagement Card

I’ve got an engagement card to share with you today which I made for a special order. The theme was a rustic yet elegant look. This is an A5 card to which I added the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The front of my card was trimmed about 1.5cm shorter on the width. Then I added a strip of Designer Series Paper on the inside of the card,  creating a pretty border. 

I paired the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack and Designer Series Paper with the Forever Blossoms stamp set to achieve just the right touch of rustic and added the beautiful Silver Metallic Edged ribbon to add the touch of elegance. I am a huge fan of gingham (you might have guessed) and if it’s rustic, gingham’s in. The Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack has 4 different patterns in all our Neutral colours. This collection is a must have in my Designer Series Paper stash as neutral colours work in with a lot of projects. The gingham heart was punched out with one of the hearts from the Heart Punch Pack. It was then adhered to the reverse of one of the heart doilies.

I stamped the blossoms on Shimmery White cardstock in Early Espresso ink. I went against the general rule of using water-based markers with a non-water based ink pad – like Stazon. The image was coloured in with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers, using an Aqua Painter to blend it. As I wanted a softer look, I chose the Early Espresso ink and I didn’t really mind that it blended in a bit as it added to the rustic look of the card. 

The inside of the card was decorated with a couple of cards from the Memories & More Card Pack. Adding this was a perfect touch for this happy couple. Memories & More card packs are great for scrapbooking as well cardmaking, as I’ve done here.

A Vintage Change of Heart

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I am loving the From my Heart suite. The heart shaped doilies are a must have for some dainty embellishing. I usually love a doily and these are heart shaped – so sweet.

These doilies come in red and flirty flamingo.From my Heart Suite Over the next week, I’m going to show you some alternative ways to use these. Dress them up or keep it simple – let’s see how these hearts are going to be great on so many projects long after Valentine’s Day is over. 

I’ve used the Beautiful Moments stamp set today. With lovely images of women and children I think this set is perfect for all the wonderful women in our lives and would make lovely Mother’s Day cards.

For the heart on today’s card, I flipped it over to the white side. Then I added some stamped field flowers with Versamark. These were stamped randomly and heat embossed in Copper. Adding Crumb Cake sponging on the heart gives it a vintage look. 

On the Crumb Cake card base I added a panel of Designer Series Paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley. This Medley is such great value. You get a stamp set, dies, DSP, embellishments, ribbon – everything for you to get creative.

As an ADDED BONUS – purchase the Botanical Prints Product Medley and I’ll throw in 10 free PDF tutorials for you to start creating. I have done all the measurements, instructions and photos so you can just get to the fun stuff. 

The stamped image has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends and I’ve embellished around it with some vellum leaves die cut from the Animal Friends dies. These are all layered on a piece of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper – a free offering during Sale-A-Bration.

I am loving the soft feel that this card has with the embossing and sponging on the heart doily. Who would guess that it’s red (or is it pink) underneath? Click on any of the images below to go to my Online Shop. There’s lots of fun products that you can get free with any purchase over $90.
