Hope you're having a good Bank Holiday weekend and will find a bit of time to do some crafting with the extra day off work :)
I had my monthly workshop this morning and the ladies came away with two cards each using the stamp set Mr & Mrs and the lovely Speciality Papers which I just adore and can't believe it's taken me till now to order them seeing as they've been available to buy for the past 7 months! lol.
As it's Wedding Season upon us, thought it was ideal to make a couple of wedding themed cards this morning, which could quite easily be used for Anniversary cards too. So, after seeing the sneak peeks of the cards the other day, here they are in their full glory:
This card uses the brayer to colour the Whisper White Speciality Paper - Bride in Blush Blossom to match the colour of the base cardstock. Using a brayer and any ink pad colour from the four colour families over these papers allows you to create your own papers from the choice of Stampin' Up!'s 48 different colours. This card also uses the lovely white satin ribbon too which again, is lovely.
Cardstock: Blush Blossom and Whisper White. Speciality Paper - Bride.
Inkpad: Blush Blossom. Versamark Stamp Pad.
Accessories: Brayer, 5/8" Satin Ribbon - White, Embossing Buddy, Stampin' Emboss Powder - Silver and Clear, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, SU Bone Folder, Paper Snips and 3D dimensionals.
Card Size: 8.5" x 4".
This card was inspired by Jo, a fellow SU Demonstrator. Taking her card as a starting point, I used the same layout, substituted her layers with the Speciality Paper and changed the colour combo and little embellishments. Thank you Jo, you can see her card here :)
Cardstock: Basic Black Textured cardstock and Very Vanilla. Speciality Paper - Bridesmaid.
Inkpad: Basic Black. Versamark Stamp Pad.
Accessories: 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon - Basic Gray, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, SU Bone Folder, Paper Snips and 3D dimensionals.
Card Size: A6.
Here are the two completed cards together that were made earlier today in my monthly workshop:
Hope you like these and they have inspired and given you some ideas on how to use this stamp set teamed up with the lovely Speciality Papers :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend - Remember to check out today's Stampin' Up! Offer on how to get products in three of the new colours coming to the new Idea Book & Catalogue this October.
Bye for now,
