Wedding Wow

A Case of a Mother’s Day or Beautiful Card

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I saw this project of Debbie Lamb's up on Facebook and just had to make one!  Such a clean and elegant design – using the new dies that are so fantastic!

This one really isn't that hard to make once you've got all the pieces out.  It's a fair bit of die cutting and embossing, but such a lovely effect.

The flowers are from the Mini Catalogue Set, Bordering on Romance, and easily coloured in with an aqua pen and the ink pads.

So this is one that can be used for a special person's birthday or for Mother's Day.  I put the Mother's Day greeting inside as it's just quite small.  I will have to find someone to give this to on Sunday!  (My own mother lives in the USA so I posted hers out a week ago).

To order supplies to make this beauty, please contact me!

Stamps: Bordering on Romance, You're A Gem, Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Colours: Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilly, Crumb Cake

Other: Aqua pen, Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon, BAsic Pearls, Framelits Dies, Vintage Wallpaper emboss folder, Dots Emboss Folder, Oval Frame Emboss Folder, Large Oval Punch, Dazzling Diamonds

In Black & White

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a wedding, and look forward to another one next month.  That was my first NZ wedding, so it was a real treat!  Being wedding season, and given the new, beautiful wedding stamp set in the Summer Mini, I thought designing wedding project would be perfect for my first class of 2012.

I struggled with the colours of this one for a while, then just went back to the classic Black & White with a touch of silver.  LOVE the new glimmer paper!!  Just a little bit adds a real wow – so one pack of this product will go a very long long way.

Girls, I added that embossing after the class as I felt it just needed one more thing.  LIke it?  It’s a bit better, I think. 

Any questions, orders, or to book into a class, please contact me!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Marry Me set of six $42.95

Other: Glimmer Paper silver, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, Oval Frame Embossing Folder, White Satin Ribbon, Scallop Ribbon Border Punch

Vintage Layout – A Gift for Pascale

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


For the last eight months, we've had a lovely lady living with us, Pascale, from Switzerland.  Just before Easter, she went back to her original home.  (I say that because I'd like to think this is also her home now too).  The girls and I decided to each make her an album page as a going away gift.

(The girls all worked on 6×6 albums over the summer after having a fun photo shoot together, so these were to add to the existing album she had started).

Each page we did reflected our personalities and tastes.  This is mine:

Stampin up vintage layout

I've used quite a few stamp sets on this one – partly because I was just using scraps that were on my desk.  LOL

Two must have's for the vintage look – the Music Notes Wheel and the Beautiful Wings (butterflies) Embosslet.  Wow, I use those butterflies SO much.

I discovered the Champagne Shimmer Paint doing this up.  It's fantastic!  Can you see it on the edges of the vellum and the leaves?  Of course photos never do justice to glitters and shimmers, but it's beautiful.

Contact me to order any of these products or for any queries!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers, Elements of Style, Music Notes Wheel, Noteably Ornate

Colours: Cherry Cobbler, Certainly Celery, Soft Suede

Other: Champagne Shimmer Paint, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, Crochet Trim Ribbon,Beautiful Wings Embosslets, Basic Pearls, Bird Punch, Vintage Brads, Vellum Cardstock, Linen Thread, Subtles Buttons, Heart to Heart Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border, Cutter Kit, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.

A big welcome back to Chrissie Patterson!  Chrissie has a beautiful, unique style – it's a pleasure to showcase you and the rest of the team on my blog.

This is the last sample for March using the Crochet ribbon, Basic Pearls, and the Vintage Trinkets. AND it's the last two days to order the crochet ribbon and the trinkets!!  The Summer Mini ends tomorrow evening – last orders going in tomorrow night.

Stunning!  Chrissie ruched or gathered the ribbon along a strip of Sticky Strip and visually anchored each end with a Pearl.  I LOVE the little tag detail with the Vintage Trinket Safety Pin.

The focal image is from the beautiful Set Easter Blossoms.  Not just for Easter!  And those words, Well Scripted. . . .I'm sad to see those ones go.  Didn't quite get my fill of those ones darn it.


The Ovals Die is more useful than it might intially appear – really great for a different shape and element to your projects.

Thank you Chrissie for another beautiful showcase!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Tiny Tags, Easter Blossoms, Well Scripted

Colours: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso

Other: Top Note Die, Love Letter DSP, Ovals Die, Crochet Ribbon, Vintage Trinkets, Jewelery Tag Punch, Basic Pearls, Sticky Strip, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder

Elegant Wedding Project

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


This is a stunning swap made by the lovely Diane Bell-Robertson for one of our Stampin' Up! Creative Inkers Team trainings.  It's a beautiful design, whether used for weddings, funerals, birthday, or thinking of you's.


I just love this project and have shared it with my customers a few times now.  Last Monday I taught a wedding card class and wanted to do this one because it's simple, economical and very effective – all great criterium for wedding projects.

On top of that, when I did a wedding show a few months back, this was by far the most popular option I had on display.

However, at my class, I had some demos coming who had seen this swap.  So I re did it in white.


I love how this looks, too.  Now, I've kept the bird in the greys and silvers, but how easy would it be to whip a little colour in there to match the wedding theme?


Now, three gueses on where the eye came from . . . .

Thanks Diane for the lovely inspiration!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: It's Beautiful wheel  $18.95

Colours: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Silver

Other: Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon, XL Bird Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Clear Embossing Powder
