For my first card, I started with a panel of watercolor card stock. I stamped the lady and gent from City Girls Special Day using waterproof ink, then stamped them again on masking paper and fussy cut them out. I placed the masks over the couple, then stamped the bicycle built for two over the top. I cut another mask for the basket and placed it over the basket, then stamped the sweet little puppy from City Girls Park Life. (I love how it looks like his little ears are flapping in the wind!)
Next, I stamped the balloon string using the same black waterproof ink, then stamped the balloon heart with Versamark and heat embossed it in a pale blue. I colored the images using my Zig markers and a wet paintbrush, then added the sentiment from the previously released Scripty Greetings using the same waterproof ink. I trimmed the watercolor panel, mounted it on a piece of coordinating pink card stock, and mounted both of those onto my white A2 card base. Nice and flat and super sweet for an engagement or wedding card!
For my last card for today, I was trying to channel my inner Rifle Paper Company. I absolutely love the concept of the new Bride Tribe... I have always wanted to be able to create stationery for bridal parties, and this new stamp set is perfect! Lots of font options, and even an option for the male wedding party! Love it.
I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle, then stamping my sentiment from Bride Tribe in the middle using Caviar Hybrid ink. I then used the just the bottom layer of the flowers from Scripty Greetings, stamping the larger middle flower in Red Sangria, then the two smaller flowers in Soft Garnet ink. The foliage was stamped directly over the top of the middle flower using Soft Garden and Bright Fern inks so that it would be peeking out from behind the top flower. I stamped the larger flower again on another piece of white card stock, fussy cut it, and popped it up over the top of the flower I had muddied with the green leaves. Super simple, but pretty and clean with all of that white space.
Well, that's all for me today! A few reminders:
