Best of Brides & Babies

BridesHello!

I hope you are having a relaxing weekend!  I have been playing in my craft room as much as possible and wanted to show you a card for a very sweet friend of mine, who is about to get married!  Wedding cards are not ones that I get a lot of practice with, but the “Best of” stamp set for Brides and Babies had just the right stamps.  The layout was just layered enough to make the dry embossing stand out nicely.  The wedding bell stamp, which was heat embossed and fussy-cut was a pretty embellishment to counteract the little flower and ribbon.  It really came together quickly because I always wait till the last minute to do my gifts for some reason!  I really don’t know why but there is nothing like a little panic to boost your creativity!

PPA172 and an Epic This and That Card

Hello!

I have been working on a few different projects and didn’t feel like I was making headway on any of them, so tonight I decided to just make an easy card for the PPA challenge.  Of course, as sketch challenges normally do, I ended up making a nice sketch complicated and before I know it, the evening was POOF – gone!  I wanted to use a designer paper that I hadn’t used before so I got out Epic This and That, found the hexagons and I was smitten:

Epic

I think this design is perfect for a masculine card so I kept it with very clean lines and rustic ribbon.  I love the washi tape with the hexagon shapes and it is VERY easy to use.  The candy dots add just the right amount of color.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets in the new catalog – Chalk Talk.  I use it frequently, especially because it comes with framelits to make the possibility of layering so fast and easy.  I really love the different colors in the designer paper, which are all soft and subtle but easily showcased.

So, I hope you like my card today!  What Stampin’ Up! product do you use all of the time?  Won’t you please leave me a comment?   You might as well so you will be eligible for blog candy!  I hope you have a great weekend with lots of stampin’ time!  Till next time,

Keep calm and craft on!

Debbie
