An old friend (and classmate) of mine got married earlier this year and next week they are throwing a wedding party for friends and family. Me and two other classmates are going together and I got the assignment to make a card for the happy couple. Here’s what I came up with during a scrap crop with mah glitter bitches today!
I remember that the bride used to love the color turquoise (I hope she still does) so I decided to make a card with white and turquoise and my all time favorite wedding stamp from Wee stamps, it’s adorable!
Most of the paper I used are from DCVW, and one from BoBunny I think, could be Echo Park too (why do I chop up my 12×12 and forget the brand?). Stamp from Wee Stamps Border punch from Martha Stewart, doily lace I think Alphabet stickers and flower from Panduro Will add some stickles too before I give it away.
I apologize for the crappy picture, I forgot to take a picture before it got dark and inside lightning is just awful. Did some adjustments to make it more true to reality. Hehe.
My mother’s husband celebrated his birthday last weekend and I made him a glittery birthday card. I just love these glitter papers eventhough they are quite tricky to punch or die cut through. They are from DCWV and I think the glittery layer is of some sort of plastic which makes it harder to get through. As you can see on the closup the edges aren’t all that pretty and even but it is what it is, the card was appreciated!
I created the card based on the layout challenge this week at clean & simple stamping and I got several ideas for other variations for that layout, I’m just waiting for my vacation to start so I have some time to make them!
– Basic white cards, I purchase them finished with an envelope – Glittery paper from DCWV – Sequins – Rhinestones from different brands – Basic black cardstock – Grattis-die from RoxStamps – Sizzix circle dies – Circle punches – Corner punch – Tape and glue
Me and Jennie made a birthday card for Malin. Her birthday is in April but they threw a birthday moving in together party this weekend. We made one box each and put them together so they fall out on each other. I got to make the smaller inside box. Here’s all the different pages/sides!
Another card order from my mum, this time a graduation card. I love the stamped poem. In short it’s about the bumblebee and how it cant fly since it’s wings are to small, but the bumblebee says you can do anything you want.
Today we celebrate mother’s day here in Sweden so I made a card for my mother. I had a lot of fun playing with my new stencil from memory box; chic chevron. I used another stencil from a company I can’t remember for the chicken wire. I decided to go for a color challenge and I found this week’s Color Q challenge #242: kiwi kiss, daffodil delight, melon mambo, tempting turquoise and white. The green ink pad I found was named kiwi but looks much more bright than I expected from that name. I do however like the color combination of all of these colors! Very happy and bright!
