A Wedding Card from Pinterest

My cousin's daughter got married about a month ago and 
I found a really great card on Pinterest.

Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the wedding and I did not know what the brides colours were so when I saw this card I knew it would be perfect.  I love that the card is all white with texture and ribbon and bling for interest.  The original card added pearls instead of rhinestones but I thought the bride was more of a rhinestone kind of girl!

Stamps:  Word Play
Inks:  Black StazOn
Papers:  Whisper White Card Stock
Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, 
2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 
Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Freshly Made Sketches - Ornamental Keepsakes

I tried my hand at the Rita's sketch over at

There is a great little paper pack in the 2012 Holiday Catalogue called Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has 48 sheets of 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" paper with some great patterns and
colour combinations.  

I used the Island Indigo pattern as the first layer of my card.  The 2012 Holiday Catalogue also has a great set, Ornament Keepsakes, which has matching Framelits to cut out each shape.  Even better is that Stampin' Up! has bundled the two items to save you 15% off the purchase price!

Stamps:  Ornamental Keepsakes and Pennant Parade
Inks:  Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade Classic Ink
Papers:  Early Espresso, Island Indigo Lucky Limeade and
Very Vanilla Card Stock, Early Espresso Core'dinates

Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - Witches Hat

Welcome to stop 11 of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop for October.  If you are hopping in order, you have just come from Kim's Blog.  If this is your first stop on the hop, no worries; all the blogs are looped together so you won't miss a thing.

My project today is a Witches Hat!

I used the Petal Cone Die and the Spider Web Embossing Folder for the top part of the hat and the Scallop Circle Die for the base of the hat.  I only stuck one of the flaps to the base so the hat can be tipped open to retrieve the treat inside.

Stamps:  None
Inks:  None
Papers:  Basic Black and Tangerine Tango Card Stock
Accessories:  Big Shot, Petal Cone Die, Spider Web Embossing Folder, Scallop Circle Die, Rich Razzleberry 1/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

That's it for me this time.  I hope you have enjoyed this stop and now it's time to hop on over to Terry's Goin' Over the Edge Blog.
