Owl Punch Wedding Card

Ever since the new SU catalogue came out, I’ve wanted to make a card using Concord Crush.  Finally, for Cath and Steve’s wedding card, I found the time!  Yeah!  You see, purple is also one of Cath’s favourite colours.  So, enter Destiny. 

I made this card using Concord Crush and teamed it together with the Basic Grey and Whisper White.  I also had to add Baroque Motifs, as I know how much Cath loves that stamp.  Of course, who doesn’t love that stamp?!!  lol.  Anyway, you can also see that I added a touch of Vintage Wallpaper as well.  Had to stick to my themes! 

The bride’s dress was made using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder with a few pearls at the bottom to make her truly elegant.  For the tiara, I used the owl’s feet and added one of SU’s gorgeous teeny pearls.  The groom’s waistcoat came from the Level 1 Hostess DSP pack and his bow tie (which I adore) came from two hearts from the Owl punch.  A few pearl buttons finished him off.

And how about the gorgeous sentiment?  I love the stamp set, Well Scripted, which is available in the current Summer Mini Catalogue – only until 31 March 2011.  Email me today to order it for yourself.  Or why not order the Owl punch – at $33.95 (plus shipping) in Australia it’s an amazing punch to add to your collection.

Well, I had so much fun making all the cards I made for Cath and Steve’s wedding.  I hope you enjoyed the journey.  Now I think I need to find another wedding!  The challenge has pushed my inspiration and it’s been soul-satisfying 🙂

Thanks for looking 🙂


Daddy’s birthday

It was my husband’s birthday on St Patrick’s Day … remember the card I made for him, here?  Anyway, these are the cards Isabella and Joshua made for him … they picked the colours, the DSP, the type of ribbon, the stamps … and then they punched and stamped and glued … and Bella coloured in … they loved it!  We had such  a wonderful afternoon together 🙂  I was very proud of them.


Not only do I get to have fun with my kids making cards … but as a demonstrator, I also get to see the new catalogue early and all demonstrators also got a sneak-peek and pre-order opportunity this year!  So, do you see any new colours on these cards??  Because, each card has a sneak peek … for you … of two new In Colors … and a new stamp set too … called Cheers to You.


I must say … I will really, really, really miss In the Stars when it finishes with the new Summer Mini on 31 March … it has been a fabulous stamp set for me!

Thanks for looking 🙂
