A Marriage Made in Heaven

Good Morning!

Welcome to April’s InspirInk blog hop. This month Hannah chose the theme….


Now wedding cards are not something I make a lot of, so this one got me thinking!

I chose a sentiment first and after rummaging in my stash for something pretty, I found my Rose Wonder stamp set and dies.

Generally speaking, I try to use just one stamp set for my projects, so I planned my overall design with Rose Wonder.

It was all too tempting to use the large rose image, but I liked the small flower in the set too.

After a bit of playing about with the different elements I decided on this design. Love it!

The card base was cut and scored in the usual way with a white card layer adhered to this.

Additional coloured and white card stock layers were cut smaller still and put to one side.

On the white piece, I stamped the greeting with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with silver powder. For extra emphasis, I also stamped the heart outline from the More Than Chocolate set.

Three flowers were stamped on to the card in coordinating ink.

Three flowers and two sets of leaves were die cut. To help adhere the flowers, I punched out 1/2 inch circles in matching card. This allowed me to use a dimensional behind each of the flowers.

The white layer was added to the coloured card stock and then adhered to the preprepared card base with dimensionals.

Some extra details were added to the flowers centres using multipurpose glue. Three basic pearls completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

For Mum

Good Morning!

I made this card especially for my mother-in-law’s birthday last weekend.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Blends to colour the rose image. The darkest shades of Cherry Cobbler were used in the centre, gradually blending in the lighter shades of Calypso Coral towards the edges.

The leaves were coloured with Old Olive markers. The dark shade was added along the veins of the leaves and then blended with the light marker.

The dies were used to cut a black outline image and the sentiment.

The fine tip glue pen was used to adhere the delicate outline. The sentiment was raised on dimensionals. The panel was added to a Calypso Coral card base.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
