Wedding Wishes with the Gift Bow Bigz Die

2 Sep

I always want to make Wedding Cards that are special.  I love the Gift Bow Bigz die and know that it always adds beauty.  It’s probably my favorite Bigz Die.  By the way, if you’d like to see some other Bigz die creations, check out Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration today.

I also got to play with a beautiful new embellishment, the iced rhinestones.  It’s there in the center of the bow.  You’ll find these in the Holiday Catalog.   Below is what I came up with.  I’m hoping the bride and groom like it as much as I do!

Elegant Wedding Card

21 Jan

Here’s a wedding card that uses the Hearts Collection Framelits #125599.  I love this layering effect.  To add dimension, I used the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder (#130917).  For that spark, a layer of the silver foil was added (#132178).

Playing With Simply Pressed Clay

24 Jun

I’ve been spending a lot of time playing with the new Simply Pressed Clay. It’s really easy to use once you figure out all of the little tips and tricks. I’ll be sharing those in the days to come. Meanwhile, I wanted to share a card I created by actually stamping into the clay and then letting it dry. Of course, the rose is from Stampin’ Up!s Simply Pressed Molds. I did dye the clay with the Blushing Bride ink refill before I molded it.

Wedding Favors

25 Jun

I was asked to create a wedding favor for an elegant wedding not long ago.  Below are the 2 designs I gave her to choose from.  I’m so thankful for the Big Shot!  It totally made creating these a snap!  In both of the projects I incorporated a flower that was created from layers of scallops punched from the scallop punch.  In order to make these, you just need 4-scallops that have been crinkled by wadding them up in your hand and something such as a brad to fasten them in the center.

What I like about this favor is that it can hang on the back of the guest’s chair.

These were designed so that the flower would slip up the ribbon to open.

Finally, I added velcro to keep the top closed.  As this was a prototype I used the only velcro I had….black.  I highly recommend using white for these colors, however.

Well, as I said, I offered the bride a choice and she chose the design below.  This one sits on the table and was created with the Fancy Favor Big Shot die.  It was super simple to make!

There you have it!

Pocket Card With the Two-Step Bird Punch

7 Apr

Anniversary/Wedding Card

Stamp set:  I Heart Hearts

Punches: Scallop Trim Border and Scallop Trim Corner, Extra large 2-Step Bird

Creating a Perfect Bordered Insert:

  1. Holding your corner punch upside down so you can see what you’re doing from the bottom, slip each corner of the square right to the corner of the cutting edge (the “v” shape).  Be careful not to go all the way into the punch, just feed it to the corners are lined up with the punch.
  2. Punch all 4 corners 1st.
  3. To punch the sides, line up just one corner.  Punch first one side and then slide your cardstock over and line up the opposite corner and punch the other side. As long as you line up your corners, you should come out fine each time.
  4. Stamp the saying using Orchid Opulence.

Creating the pocket card:

  1. Fold the card in half and then fold the top of the front of the card down approximately 1 3/8” from the top.
  2. Using the border punch, edge the flap.
  3. Punch the corners on the Old Olive CS and then run through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  The sandwich for this is:

Multi-purpose platform opened to tab 1

Clear cutting mat

Embossing folder with CS inside

Clear cutting mat

  1. Attach the Designer Paper to the flap with adhesive and glue embossed old olive piece onto the card and then fasten the flap using the gold brads and the 1/8” punch.
  2. Using the 2-step bird punch, punch out:  2 orchid birds, 2 white wings, and 2 olive branches.
  3. Use the Hearts stamp inked in Razzelberry to add pattern to the wings and stamp another heart on white.
  4. Cut out this heart and add to the card using dimensional
  5. Finish the card as shown.
