Well Tricia is giving away a Lizzie Anne Designs stamp set called Gettin Hitched! GO enter HERE!

I LOVE that set yet realized I hadn’t really used it much!

So, in honor of her giveaway I made this card!~

love Lizzie Love

I used todays Sketch challenge 135  to inspire this card. I have to say I LOVE it. I went with blue cause I was thinking “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” and VOILA! Here you get this card!

The base, and cake image were done using Shimmery White cardstcok. C’mon you cant NOT use shimmery white on a Wedding card! Cake was colored with myCopic markers, then popped out with my Giga Scallop Oval punch

Used my cuttlebug stylized embossing folder, and Filled Hearts folders for this.

Tied around some wide white organdy ribbon with some elegant Tiffany fiber and was done! This card took 10 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELLO! Now that is my type of wedding card!

Maybe I should send to to Tricia? Happy Anniversary!

Next up-more dirty challenges! This one fits Jody’s brad challenge, and Shel9999 distress challenge.

Basically I was inspired by my Basic Grey Infuse cardstock. Jolies Fleurs (also lizzie anne) was PERFECT!!!!!

basic grey la

I basically stamped, colored (copics again) and did the DTP technique (my tim holtz inks) till I had this look. Really was pretty simple.

Added the sentiment on vellum. Added some copper brads-which I LOVE using copper with browns and these colors, and DONE!

Next up. Moccachino

moccachino Ok you all know how much I LOVE coffee! Well I sketched this out-and it was one of those ideas that worked better on paper! LOL! I still like it, but I dont LOVE it! KWIM? So I plan on re-doing this sketch. We shall see!

This is the Latte cup/sentiment also Lizzie Anne.

Enjoy the day!

Back to the birds. Im totally in LOVE with SU! Autum Flowers paper. A  MUST HAVE!!! It inspired this card.

I used my markers to color the image. Stamped it on my white cardstock, then punched out with my Giga Scalloped Circle. Love these colors-sky, saharah sand, turq.  and olive.

Used the scalloped corner image on my corner, then used my singlo pen to make the dots.

I continued the scalloped look at the top if my side panel, and added some white dotted ribbon as well.

Sentiment is also MFT. Its from Simply Said set.

Well I’d love to hear what you decide to order! SHARE it here!
