Say I Do! with the Shoe

A coworker asked me to make a wedding card for a friend who was getting married this weekend.  I always like to make my cards coordinate with the theme/colors of the wedding.  When I asked her the colors she sent me a text of the bride’s shoe.  I fell in love with the shoes which inspired me to create today’s card.  Here’s the shoe.

Here’s my card.

Stampin Up Detailed Floral Thinlits Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Basic Black and Very Vanilla are classic and timeless! My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 Very Vanilla scored at 5 1/2.  I cut a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 basic black using the Detailed Floral Thinlits and the Precision Base Plate.  It’s quick and easy to get all the little pieces out with the die brush.  Here’s a short video showing how to cut the Detailed Floral Thinlits.

 

I attached my detailed floral piece to the card base using Fast Fuse adhesive along the wide strip across the top.  You can add Glue Dots to adhere the detailed floral piece if you want but I like to leave it free flowing.  I stamped the sentiment from Falling for You using basic black ink. I love the font and sentiments in this stamp set!

I couldn’t resist making a bow (to match the shoe) using the Bow Builder Punch. Watch this short video to see how easy it is to make a bow using this punch and Glue Dots.

 

My matching envelope was made using a piece of 2 1/4 x 6  basic black and cutting it out with the smaller die from the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  I adhered it to the envelope flap using Tear & Tape along the edges of my envelope then cutting away the excess paper.

You could make this card and envelope in any color for any occasion! It is quick & easy! If you don’t have the Bow Builder Punch you can add a ribbon bow. Stamp a sentiment and you are good to go!

L is for Love

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Stampin’ Up! has lots of new products for sending cards to loved ones for Valentine’s Day, anniversary, and wedding. The Occasions catalog is filled with so many ideas to inspire us! Today I am showcasing two cards I made using products from the Falling in Love Suite.

falling-in-love-suite

I love everything in this suite…the soft muted colors in the designer series paper, the lace doilies, jewel embellishments, and especially the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  It can look like hearts or falling petals. The Lace Doilies are printed Very Vanilla on one side, white on the other. I love that versatility!  I was inspired by the anniversary card showcased on page 50 (and above) and couldn’t wait to make it in different colors.

My niece is getting married next month and her wedding colors are navy, silver, and white. I used the Falling Petals Embossing Folder for the background on this card. I embossed the hearts on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Night of Navy cardstock and added the lace doily, vellum, and ribbon before adhering it to the card base. I embossed the sentiment from the So in Love Stamp Set with silver embossing powder and cut it out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I used silver foil to cut the love from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. I cut a piece of 2 1/4 x 6 Night of Navy cardstock to emboss with the hearts to make a matching envelope.

My next card uses the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper for the background.

The card base is Sahara Sand. Next is a layer of Very Vanilla which  measures 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.  The designer series paper from Falling in Love measures 4 x 5 1/4. I cut a circle from the layering circles framelits to place behind the very vanilla doily.  It gives it a different look. I like the tone on tone to highlight the sentiment banner and heart.

I used the same sentiment from So in Love only this time I masked part of it so I would just have the word celebrate. I used the Bunch of Banner Framelits to cut out the sentiment and attached it with dimensionals.  I cut the heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits using silver foil and added the embellishment to tie in the silver and vanilla. I used the DSP to line the back of the envelope. I love the elegant look of this card.

It’s all in the Details…Floral Details

Detailed Floral and Sunshine Wishes Thinlits congratulations wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I knew the Detailed Floral Thinlits were going to be added to my collection the second I saw them!  I purchased them as a Bundle with the Floral Phrases Stamp Set and Saved 10%. Woo Hoo! Previously I shared a video how to use these dies.  You can see that HERE if you missed it. I promised you I would be sharing more cards using this set and today I’m going to share two more cards using these thinlits.  Today’s cards are standard size (unlike the fun fold card I shared on the Pals Blog Hop). The first card features the Bow Builder Punch. I love the Stampin’ Up punches because they are quick and easy to use. You can watch this short video to see how I made the bow for my card.

This card is classic in black and vanilla.  It went together quick with the help of my Big Shot.  The sentiment on the front is from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits…this set has several great sayings to cut out and use on your projects.  I cut the Detail Floral Thinlits on the front of the card and then added the vanilla cardstock behind it on the inside. I used the Floral Phrases stamp set to stamp the inside sentiment and border in basic black archival ink.

I made this next card using the same colors and floral thinlits only this time you can see through the detailed die to the inside of  the card.

I stamped and cut the sentiment on the front using the Banners For You Stamp Set and Bunch of Banners Framelits. I popped the banner up using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added some Pearl Basic Jewels.  So elegant! I used the same verse on the inside as I did on the wedding card because it can easily work for both wedding and anniversary.  For this card I had to make sure I stamped it on the left side so the words couldn’t be seen through the die on the front.

I used the border stamp from the Floral Phrases stamp set to decorate the front of my envelopes.  It makes a nice space to write the recipient’s address.
