I've been swamped with weddings that either have occurred or are getting ready to happen. It's been a wonderful year for many of my friends to tie the knot and I am so lucky to be part of it. So when I hear this week's PaperPlay Challenge theme - Blossoms & Blooms - I knew it was the perfect setup to create something wedding-ish. This week we are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy. Unfortunately, I don't own any of this company's great stamps, but one lucky player gets to win a stamp set :) Isn't that exciting?
So without further ado, here's my Blossoms & Blooms card with a wedding twist:
Stamps: (Roses In Bloom) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Aqua Mist) Papertrey Ink;
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko; (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen) Ranger
Embellishments: (Stamp 'n Stuff White Opaque Embossing Powder) Stampendous!; (Phrases - Portrait Collection) Crate Paper
This card reminded me (yet again) that I wanted to add Detail White embossing powder to my shopping list! Grrr... but I think this card came out pretty nice. It's Tiffany's & Co. meet Vintage, right?
An up close look on this brilliant sentiment. I love the font - so classic. And Portrait Collection is really one of the Crate Paper collection I can't get enough of. I scored some at The Craft's Meow, which offers great customer service & super ship time. About a year ago, I was a in-store shopper; now I just get my supplies online, cause it is so much easier (and I can't wait to get the cool stuff :)
Alas, I'd like to enter this card into this week's Wee Memories challenge. The theme is "Stamp It" - always a good excuse to dust those rubber or acrylic ones off, right?
Anyways - hope you feel inspired by the card. Go check out the other creations by the lovely PaperPlay Design Team. I really love working with this bunch of super fun & supportive gals. And they always come up with some brilliant designs. I bet after you have completed your blog hopping, you'll be sure to play along. Because blossoms & blooms can go on any kind of card!
