A Very Mice Wedding

Do you remember the wedding invitations from a few weeks ago?  This week’s blog post is the card I made for the actual wedding.  For my card, I used Waffle Flowers Slim Lacy Layers Dies and Colorado Craft Company Happily Ever After stamps and dies.

After cutting out the white layer, I decorated it by blending through a randomly placed heart template.

Next, I stamped the bride and groom and a selection of flowers and coloured them with Copic markers.

The final job was heat embossing the sentiment and assembling the elements.  I glued the flowers onto the card but popped the couple up on foam squares.  Lastly, I added a few white heart embellishments around the bride and groom.

Lastly, I used the smaller stamps to make the card for the gift vouchers.  This card was not as wide as the slimline dies so the panels were cut down using the partial die-cutting technique.

Sparkly Snowflake

Having bought the Snowflake Splendour DSP, I thought I’d better make an effort to use it!  The pack handily gives the coordinating colours so it’s easy to choose a colour scheme for your project.  I used Balmy Blue and Highland Heather as I like to try some non-traditional Christmas colour schemes for a bit of a change.

First, I die cut a circle of Balmy Blue glimmer paper and Whisper White card.  I then cut the snowflake into the glimmer paper using the large snowflake die from So Many Snowflakes and glued this on top of the white circle.

The background was cut from a sheet of the DSP and adhered to the card base.

I use the stamps from Snowflake Wishes to decorate the card liner and envelope and for my greeting.

The last job was to assemble the card, adhering the snowflake element to the top.  I could have popped it up on foam dimensionals but left it flat for easier posting.

For my second card, I used Highland Heather and a retired glimmer paper which goes really well with the colours in the Snowflake Splendour DSP.

Buy The Shoes!

This week’s card is inspired by a box frame I saw on Pinterest which had 3 pairs of shoes in a shop window using the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress stamp set.

To begin, I stamped 6 shoes on white card and 3 pairs onto patterned paper as I wanted to paper piece my shoes.  I cut the shoes out using the coordinating die and fussy cut the patterned shoes, sticking each patterned shoe onto a white background.

Next, I made my shop front.  I cut a rectangle out of a piece of card and then ran it through the Brick & Mortar embossing folder.  I attached a piece of acetate to the back to create a window and added a scalloped edge canopy over the top of the window.

Posh shoes need a shoe box and I created one using a couple of rectangles of Soft Suede card.  These were glued to a piece of white card and the shoes added on top.

The final part of construction was to adhere the shoe layer onto a Soft Suede mat layer and then glue this to the card front.  The shop front was attached using foam tape.  Lastly, I added a thin strip of patterned paper and a fun sentiment.

I used 2 pairs of shoes on the previous card (one pair were on the liner) so I quickly made this last card for my 3rd pair.  I repeat stamped the shoe image randomly on the card front, added a Highland Heather mat layer stamped around the edge with the rose image, and topped with the shoes and sentiment.
