Here comes the bride!

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we invite you to participate in our wedding theme challenge.  Create an invitation, a place card, a card, thank you cards, favor or table decoration.  My wedding creations are a Vellum petal favor box, Vellum flower decoration, place card and table number card.  The petal favor box is from a template I created and I’m selling it for $1.95.  Go to my Tutorial page to purchase.  The flower was created using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.  See below more details.  The place card and table number card were printed using My Digital Studio.

For the table card I printed on Vellum the the table number and flourish from My Digital Studio then attached it to the silver card stock by punching two holes at the top of the Vellum and silver card stock and tying with ribbon.  For a simple embellishment I punched the corner of the silver card stock with the corner Scallop Trim punch.

I love the Strength and Hope rubber and digital stamp set.  It’s so versatile.  The flourish image was perfect for these wedding projects.

I hope you’re inspired to create a project for this challenge.

Strength & Hope Butterfly Card – Let’s Fight Breast Cancer!

This past weekend I held a workshop and my make-and-take was a card I saw in the May issue of SUCCESS.  SUCCESS is a magazine for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and is a valuable tool to helping us with our business.   I used the colors and punches I own to create the card.  My customers loved making it.  Plus it showcased the stamp set so well.  With each purchase of this stamp set Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.
