Seasonal Bells – Wedding Card

Today’s card was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Fab Friday:

Normally when I make a wedding card, I like to make it in the colors of the wedding.  However, with wedding season upon us, I thought it’d be a good idea to have a general wedding card ready to go.

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Smoky Slate cardstock and adhered it to the card.  Over that I adhered a banner of Silver Foil cardstock and a panel of Basic Gray cardstock.

I then cut out a circle of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits and stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray ink using the Seasonal Bells stamp set at the bottom.

I stamped the bells from the Seasonal Bells Bundle in Versamark ink and heat embossed them using the Heat Tool and silver embossing powder.  I cut them out using the Bell Punch.  After adhering them to the card, I then wound around some Silver Thread and adhered a Silver Enamel Circle over it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Wedding

Tomorrow afternoon and Friday night I’ll be hosting my May Make & Take stamp party.  Each month we make 4 cards featuring one bundle that month.  We have a great time and if you’re ever in the Albany, NY area – I’d love to have you join me!

The card today is one that we’ll be making this week.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock as my base.  I then took a 3′ pattern from the Falling In Love DSP and matted it on some Copper Foil Sheet.

Next I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and inked up the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled Copper embossing powder on it and heat embossed it using the Heat Tool.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card, I cut out one Very Vanilla flower and one Copper Foil flower using the Stylish Stems Thinlits.  I wound some Copper Thread behind the sentiment and then tucked the flowers behind that.

Enjoy!

Love is in the Air

Today’s card is inspired by the challenge over at Global Design Project this week.  For my “free choice” color I used Pink Pirouette.  I always love how nicely navy and pink compliment each other.

My card today starts out with Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the large So Detailed thinlit to cut the flower detail out and then adhered it to the card.

I took another panel of Whisper White cardstock and using the brayer sponge and Night of Navy ink, I created a gradient appearance.  I then cut out the letters to form the word “love” using the Large Letters Framelits and adhered them over the So Detailed, well, detail.

I stamped the “is in the air” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Night of Navy and adhered it below the word “love.”  I used the Jar of Love Bundle and stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette ink and leaf in Night of Navy ink and cut them out with the coordinating framelit.

Enjoy!

Any Occasion – Wedding Card

Welcome to this week’s Happy Stamper’s Blog Hop.  This week we bring you a sketch challenge.

14035004_10210533704447159_4579803154245127680_n

I have a wedding coming up and wanted to make a card to coordinate with their colors – Purple and Silver.

My card uses Rich Razzleberry as its base which I layered with Silver Foil and some more Rich Razzleberry.

any-occasion-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Between the Silver and the top Rich Razzleberry I used the new Sale-a-bration Any Occasion Stamp Set and stamped the banners in Memento Black and Rich Razzleberry.  My initial intention was for the Rich Razzleberry banner to line up perfrectly with the swag, but neither came out that way and I really liked the look it made, so I kept it.

any-occasion-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieI then used the Layering Circles to cut a hole out of the top cardstock and also to create the scalloped rim around the circle in Silver.  I made a bow to place above the banners using Silver 5/8″ ribbon.

Enjoy!

I used the Rich Razzleberry as my base to the card and then layered it with Blushing Bride.

I used the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set to create my own patterned paper using the three colors, Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron.

I used the Better Together Stamp Set for my sentiment which I heat embossed in white on Mint Macaron.  I added a white ribbon knot to finish it off.

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells

If you’re swinging over from Amy’s blog – Welcome and thanks for taking the time to visit!

For today’s card, I’m featuring the NEW Seasonal Bells Bundle (gotta love those bundles and the Holiday Catalog is full of them).  At first glance I really liked this bundle, but when I looked closer and saw the wedding sentiment – I knew I had to have it.  In total this summer, we’ve gone to 4 weddings and I’m always looking for a go-to wedding stamp!

143533G

For my card I’m using colors Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sky and did a few layering of these colors to begin with.  With the top Whisper White, I first stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo so I could figure out where I wanted to start the Softly Falling embossing folder.

Seasonal Bells - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then made the bells using the Seasonal Bells stamp and punch that comes in the bundle.

Lastly, I tied a bow around the embossing seam using the Ruched Flirty Flamingo Ribbon.

Enjoy!

Bloomin’ Heart

Today’s card inspiration comes from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.

HSS Sketch 234I went wedding card with the layout taking advantage of the b-e-a-utiful Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit.  It’s so delicate and intricate.  It can easily stand alone with just a few other details.

I started with a Thick Whisper White cardstock and then layered it with Basic Gray and Whisper White.

Bloomin Heart - Stamp It Up With JaimieI snuck a strip of Silver Ribbon behind the Whisper White Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit.

Bloomin Heart - Stampin Up

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black and is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.  I added a few small rhinestones and sequins to finish it off.

Enjoy!
