Monochromatic Wedding Card

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card

Stampin' Up! Wedding Card SideViewIt’s a nice day for a white wedding… !  This card was quick, quick, quick!  A Whisper White card with a 4 x 5 1/4 inch layer embossed with the Elegant Bouquet (#115964) Sizzix embossing folder and then the top layer cut with the *NEW* (coming June 1st) Apothecary Accents Sizzix Framelits dies (#127003) exclusively for Stampin’ Up!

The center was embossed with the Designer Frames folder #123130 (comes with an oval and a rectangle frame) directly onto the cut layer and then I sneakily stamped the greeting on scrap white and punched it out with the XL oval punch that fits EXACTLY in the middle!  No worrying about getting it right.  And to top it off, strategically placed pre-glued rhinestones (#119246) added just that right amount of bling…

The satin ribbon… which I will miss terribly–is slated to retire May 31st… I LOVE the satin ribbon and wish Stampin’ Up! would re-think that!  I might have to stockpile it…

Remember, May 31st–this Thursday, is the last day for the 2011-12 Catalog and the last day for this month’sonline special… AND the last day to qualify for my $200+ basket of goodies for leaving a comment on my blog post… the winner will be announced Friday!

Stampin' Up! Apothecary Art card

Apothecary Art I totally love this set (do you notice I am stuck on a roll with it)… and isn’t the cardstock awesome?!  The Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog has a new card and envelopes set ‘Designer Cuts‘ which features four each of two stunning laser cut vanilla cards.  My TOTAL favorite is this lacy bottom… I sponged it with Crumb Cake ink to give it an antique look.

I did a video here on how to watercolor which will show you my watercolor techniques.  I used the Watercolor Wonder crayons and a blender pen.  I usually use the Aquapainters with the crayons, but I wanted more controlled coloring on the fine details.

I have included the sets and accessories that I have used:

Apothecary Art Set (wood #125525, clear #125527); Loving Thoughts (wood #125843, clear #125845)
