Hi my friends! Thanks for your patience!!! 🙂
Here is another of the wedding cards that I made recently! Oh … that just reminded me … I need to go shopping for some gifts to go with the cards … will I ever get over the feeling of playing catch up???
I know this is NOT Stampin’ Up! … but just very occasionally I drag out my non SU! stamps and have a play! So … you can see that this was done in the same colour theme as my previous “Bridal Swing” card. Lotsa white … plus touches of gold, pink & green. The image is embossed with gold and then very softly watercoloured. All the details including technique instructions are in the card recipe at the end of this post.
I thought I might spoil you a little … seeing you have been so patient … and give you a second card today! Aren’t I kind! 😉
Another pretty wedding card … also in the same colour theme … but this time using SU! stamps! The “Bride” is actually from the “Big on Spring” set from the Spring 2008 mini catty … and the background is done with “Sprinkles” which is a newbie for me! (I only just bought it about a month ago!) It has the sweetest little background stamps in this set. And … sooooo reasonably priced! The pretty pink rhinestones are from my pre-SU! days … and I think they really finished off the card.
So … I am off to Miranda tomorrow! Yes … my annual Christmas shopping trip … to try and wipe out the bulk of my Chrissy shopping! I’m not sure I will get it all done … but at least it will be a start. Stacey & Sheree are both coming with me … so it will be a nice girls’ day out! Skye is begging to come too … but I can’t justify another day off school after she had Friday off for the funeral. So … we do need to leave early … around 7.30ish … to get to Sydney just in time for the shops to open. Believe me … if you don’t plan to do this … you drive around for an hour looking for a space in the car park. I have had years of experience!!! 😉 If I don’t get here tomorrow with another card … you will know it is because I am “pooped” and just can’t do another thing!!! 😀
