Wedding Hearts

Ok, this is really my last post for the day... The power went out and then the internet went out with these storms and I had so many things done and couldn't post them!
While I was playing around with the rose from the Create Embellish Adore blog I found another great idea that I had to try! I changed it around a bit but such a cute idea!

The hearts are punched using the Full Heart Punch. The bride is using the Finial Press embossing folder with the Big Shot. The necklace is non-Stampin' Up mini pearls. The Groom is 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon for the bow tie and I punched out a white heart and just cut the shirt part out. The black buttons are marker. The black and white paper is the retired Specialty DSP and of course the Lattice die cut for the background. The ribbon is Organza with white half pearls from the Pretties Kit on top!

Lattice Rose

I saw how to make this rose HERE! They are so easy to make and absolutely beautiful! It uses the ornament punch and a circle to glue them all to. I used the lattice die for the background and some retired specialty DSP. It is pretty fragile and very 3-D.
Now I'm just trying to figure out what to do with it!

Manhattan Flower Emboss

I was playing around with my Manhattan Flower embossing folder and this is what I came up with. The leaves are just pieces of another embossed rose cut out and sponged with ink.
The ribbon is regal rose 5/8” grosgrain with the organza ribbon taped right on top! I thought this looked so pretty and was really easy to do. The tape runner fits right down the center solid part on the organza ribbon to stick them together. The embossing folder for the background is the petals-a plenty-folder from the last mini which I think you can still order now.

I did a Sketch Challenge!

This card is for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I thought this was a really unique looking sketch to have to come up with. I used some retired colors because they match the new Welcome Neighbor DSP pretty good.(That’s what the house in the center is from.) The colors I used are Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Buckaroo Blue, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy. The saying is from the Once Upon a time stamp set. On the inside it says ‘Happily ever after’.

Easter bunny chicks!

I think these are my new all-time favorite Easter cards yet! I love these little baby chicks dressed up as the Easter bunny! I liked them so much I thought I would make a mini partial tutorial for how to make them.

You will need:

Large Oval Punch

Wide Oval Punch

1 3/8” Circle Punch

5 Petal Flower Punch

Cutter kit distressing tool (keychain)

Welcome Neighbor DSP (sale-a-bration)

Smarty Pants stamp set

A Good Egg stamp set

Pumpkin Pie cardstock

So Saffron cardstock

So Saffron ink

Taken with Teal cardstock

Regal Rose cardstock

Whisper White cardstock

Old Olive cardstock
White gel pen
Basic black ink
Crystal Effects

Punch out a shape like this with Whisper white and the 5 petal flower punch. Punch a 1 3/8" circle out of So Saffron. Distress the edges with the distressing tool on the keychain.

Punch one petal with the 5 petal flower punch out of So Saffron. Cut the little marks in it to make the chicks wing.

Using the 5 petal flower punch, punch out two petals from Regal Rose. Cut off the center like shown to make the inside of the bunny ears.

This is what the ears should look like. Then I put them over the chick and trimmed the bottom edges to fit. I used markers and a sponge to distress the edges before I put things together and a white gel pen for highlights.

The beaks are cut out of Pumkin Pie cardstock and the feet are drawn on. The sayings are punched using the wide and large oval punches. The cracked eggs are stamped and cut out with crystal effects on them.

Bacon and Eggs Birthday!

This is the card that I made for my husbands cousin for his birthday. His present is candles that are made out of bacon fat. You light them and drip them on a salad to add flavor. I thought this would go perfectly!
The eggs are Summer Sun sponged with Apricot Appeal ink. The whites are sponged on the edges with Going gray. The bacon is close to cocoa with more mustard, really rust, close to cocoa and creamy caramel ink on them. Highlights are with the white gel pen.
