Wedding Day

I'm guest designing again this week at Crazy4Challenges and Joanne Grzelak has given us a sketch challenge. It's challenge C4C232.

I thought this sketch would make a pretty wedding card and I like to keep one or two in my stash at all times. This one was so fun to make.

I see the embossing isn't showing on my black oval but it is embossed with a pretty Anna Griffin Juliet Damask embossing folder.

The tie was made with a Fiskars Heart border punch. It is the remnants and the two hearts glued together at the bottom tips.

I made a dimensional banner using the tutorial by Tonie Storie on Splitcoaststampers.

Woolly Love


This week's CAS challenge #268 on Splitcoaststampers is a Featured Stamper challenge. You are to choose a past DT member  and case her card. I chose Diane aka fionna51 to case. She has a wonderful gallery full of CAS cards. I chose this card to case.
I love sheep and had a new stamp set including them so I couldn't help but make a card with these cuties. The sentiment, sheep, and grass are all from Taylored Expressions/Hello Spring set.  They were stamps, not dies. I cut them out. The clouds were made with a large Hero Arts stamp/Vertical Clouds. I cut only a few of the clouds from it and popped them on.
The grass was made with paper from The Paper Studio/lime green gingham.  I used Copics, C1 and 110. The clouds were sponged with VersaMagic Aegean Blue and Sea Breeze.
