Medallion wedding thank you

This is the last of the wedding cards I made for my lovely friend soon-to-be-bride. 

I’ve used the same colours as before – So Saffron, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla.  I stamped the En Francais in Gold ink – but stamped off to make the colour lighter.  Then I stamped the Medallion in Versamark ink and covered it with clear embossing powder.  I heated the powder so it melted and once that was finished, I sponged So Saffron ink around the Medallion to make it pop out – also known as the technique of emboss resist. 

For the sentiment, SNEEK PEEK I used a new Level 3 Hostess stamp set, Occasional Quotes, and used my So Saffron marker to colour and stamp only the “thank you”.  I punched the Brushed Gold cardstock with the scallop edge punch and paper pierced a strip of So Saffron cardstock with my mat pack.  A few pearls (non-SU) finished it off.

Close as a Memory … emboss resist

Emboss resist is a really cool technique which, I thought, looked fab using Close as a Memory.  Fortunately, I don’t have anyone to give this card to yet.   I made it for a technique workshop the other night.

I stamped the flowers in Versamark, then embossed it with white embossing powder.  After that, I sponged Kiwi Kiss ink over the image … and then polished it off with a tissue.  Using my double-rectangle punch, I added the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon which coordinates with the Kiwi Kiss paper I’ve used.

My sister’s 30th …

Last weekend we were in Canberra for my sister’s 30th birthday … animal print theme!  It was a fantastic party, awesome night (except poor Cath lost her voice) .. and the kids were even good even though it was a late night!

My card is nothing like we were dressed … but this is what I made for her…

It was an entirely unexpected card, nothing like I had in my head to start with … all I knew was that I wanted a card using my new toy, the Sticky Cut Letters, with Chunky Sprinkles!  After that, I stamped Baroque Motifs in versamark and heat embossed it in white … using the emboss resist technique … I then sponged over the white embossing with Pink Pirouette … rubbed off the excess ink with a tissue and then added the gorgeous and coordinating Pink Pirouette ribbon!  It really only took about 15 minutes to make … once I stopped looking at the blank white paper!!

The papers I’ve used are Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White.
