First up is this wedding card using Love & Laughter.
Blushing Bride, Basic Gray & Shimmery White. The background print is from the Twitterpated DSP in the Occasions Mini. I layered it and the Basic Gray accent layer together, then put it through the Big Shot with the Adorning Accents Edgelit, cutting them both together. Then, I embossed it with the Adorning Accents matching folder. The dress in the center was stamped in Blushing Bride on Shimmery White and cut out. I added Blushing Bride Pleated Satin ribbon at the bottom edge and a Blushing Bride flower button at the hip. The rectangle I was layering the dress onto what just a tad too big, so guess what: Adoring Accents Edgelit to the rescue. I cut all three layers at the same time with just a little bit of a fuzzy edge that a sanding block took care of. The dress is attached with dimensionals and the whole element is attached to the background with dimensionals.
Next up is these Cherry Flowers.
This card started while preparing for Club a few weeks back. I wanted to use this new set, but I decided the coloring was too stressful for a group setting. It's fine at home just me and the stamp table though, so I finished it for the tour. The Rose label image was stamped with Basic Gray and then colored with Regal Rose, Blushing Bride & Old Olive. I did the roses with a mix of Blushing Bride and Regal Rose markers. The leaf images were done with a blender pen and Old Olive Classic ink. I never much like my coloring, but from a distance it looks OK :) The Apothecary Art set coordinates with the new Labels Framelits Dies so I cut the image out after coloring with the closest size die. You can see it leaves a little edge around the stamp image. As for layering, the next size die is a little more larger than I'd like, so I did something cool someone on SUDSOL shared the other day. Remember how we layer the Decorative Label? Yep, cut two more of the same size. Cut one in half vertically, the other horizontally and layer to the back of the colored panel. It gives you a few more bumps on the outside edge, but it works for me. Thanks SUDSOL for the great idea!! I think it was Robin Messenheimer who shared it!!
Lastly, this bright and cheery card using FREE goodies from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
