The wedding invitation’s inspiring journey nears end

And now we draw near to the end of the creation stage of my sister’s wedding invitation journey. 

In the wee hours, while the house slept and my eyes began to sag, I made one last invitation that wasn’t anything like what Cath had asked for, except that it had a touch of the “Together Forever” and the colours – Basic Grey and Pretty in Pink.  I had a new embossing folder from my latest Stampin’ Up! order and it called out to me, lol!

And so I used my Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder with my Big Shot and made this card.  I kept the Baroque Motifs square stamped in Pretty in Pink, and I layered it with vellum punched with the scallop square punch and stamped with the faithful “Together Forever”.  Of course, there were the pearls as well.

And I used my last snippets of white taffeta ribbon, though you’ll have to trust me on that because you can’t see behind the middle panel, lol!

This was the card that caught Cath by surprise.  And we altered it to blend the ideas she liked as well to create her very own handmade wedding invitation.  Here are some of the ideas that came together …

The first was the idea of the way I layered the scallop circle punch with the scallop oval punch.  So I made a mock invitation with that layering and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.

Cath kept telling me how much she really liked the flourish from Baroque Motifs, but we couldn’t see how to add it with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder because both together would be too busy.  Then I had an idea, and I added a touch of pink with Baroque Motifs like this … 

Next Cath wanted to added a panel underneath this punched layering of Together Forever.  So this was the next design, first with the last scraps of my white taffeta ribbon …

And lastly with a touch of pink …

Cath and Steve made their decision!  But, you’ll have to check back tomorrow to see the end of wedding invitation’s journey and enjoy all its glory!

Can you pick the design/colours they chose?

Thanks for looking 🙂

Sweet Treats New Catalogue Launch party

Well, it’s been over a month since my New Catalogue Launch party, and I’ve been quite MIA on the blogfront (sorry!), but I have been busy!   I think it’s time for some catch-up blogging … I’ve so much to show you 🙂

These are the cards everyone made at my launch and the gifts they received …

 This card was made with the Newsprint DSP (I love it!) and was entirely inspired by Jen Sannes here.  Thank you for a stunning card, Jen!   The cardstock colours are Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  And the Star was punched from Basic Black cardstock that had been through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  A silver brad attached the star to the card and on the strip of Very Vanilla the sentiment is stamped from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Sentiments. 

This card was also an inspired card.  This time I was inspired by My Sweet Stampin Spot here.  I’ve used the colours Sahara Sand and Whisper White.  Using the Big Shot, I cut out the Top Note in Whisper White, then ran it through with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I then used my brayer and Sahara Sand ink to roll over the top of the embossed image – and wow!  The ink rolls onto the embossed image.  Very cool effect, heh?

 We then stamped the sentiment from Perfect Punches, and punched it out with the coordinating punch.

This card was inspired from my trip to Convention in Sydney this year.  I’ve used the colours Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and More Mustard – oh, and the strings are my Bashful Blue marker pen.  It’s using the stamp set Party Hearty, which I just love – it’s so versatile, especially for kid’s birthdays.

 Here is a close up with the silver flower and grosgrain ribbon.

Next is my daughter so wanting to be part of the night instead of going to bed!

Each guest received a little cupcake of Baja Breeze ribbon and a “brownie” box of goodies.

Aren’t the “brownie” boxes the cutest ever?  I saw them as a fan of Stampin’ Up! on Facebook here.  And I found an great tutorial for the boxes here.  For my boxes, I embossed the brownie boxes with Perfect Polka Dots and Manhattan Flower.  Then decorated them with pearls, ribbon, flowers punched from the Boho Blossoms punch and felt flowers.
