I was asked recently if I could make a wedding card for a friend (hello Michael!). I was delighted to do so and rumaged around in my box (es!) of stamps to find a suitable one. As this card was from a bloke to his brother ..man to man....I din't want the image to be too girly or cute...but then again the card was for a wedding so had to be pretty but not too masculine.
So out came a very old ...but eminently suitable wood mounted 'Stampendous' stamp. This must have been one of the very first stamps I bought. Now I have a cupboard full :)
Having never attempted yet a WOW (white on white card) I knew that this was the perfect time! The image is coloured with prisma pencils and some stickles for her veil. The edging of the image is also done in stickles. I stamped the sentiment and the image in Memento Brown ink to give it a softer look. I have used a gorgeous doily and some embossed cardstock to make the base of the card. I have made some more of the rolled flowers.....coz I just love them! I then tied a bow with some organza ribbon, added a little ribbon slider and some lovely paper rose buds.
This card will be popping into my Etsy shop today!
Thanks for your visit....as always it is greatly appreciated!

This morning I just wanted to share a card I made for a customer. She was looking for an anniversary card for her husband and spotted one I had made in my early card making days.....so I tried to recreate it as best I could!
I am always worried creating commisions for people as you really hope they like it...but I know this lovely lady is really happy with it! Phew!
Anyway my photos are still pretty blurred so I am beginning to think the problem is me and not blogger...though I am doing nothing different from normal. I just can't get a good crisp clear shot! Maybe I need to read my camera manual!

This is a simple wedding card or could be turned easily into an anniversary card. The stamps are from Stampendous, which I have coloured with watercolour pencils. The image is matted onto silver cardstock. The background is a sentiment stamp stamped over and over again in silver ink. The wording goes like this " May your life together be full of love and your love full of life." This stamp is from Penny Black. 3 half pearls are added for a little decorative touch. I have doodled a frame around the edges. Oh the turqoise cardstock is from Bazzil.
Hope your all having a good day...I'm off to sort out the kitchen, then the washing, then ....the list goes on. The rain is on today so should get lots done.
Seeeeee you soon
