Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime Wedding Card

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a Wedding Card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime and Forever Blossoms stamp sets and Lasting Elegance dies. There are so many stamp sets and bundles that are currently available to make beautiful, elegant wedding cards and it makes it difficult to choose. So let’s get started looking at some of the options. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I love the Lasting Elegance dies, so I used both of the floral dies to cut a panel of the new Sahara Sand foil. This foil is so pretty – like a soft gold. I adhered the die cut panel to a Basic White panel and wrapped a length of Polka Dot Tulle around it, securing it in the back and popped the panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly Die. The Sahara Sand ink looks great with the foil and looks more like gold than brown.

I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and added three white elegant gems. I made a bow with the polka dot tulle ribbon and adhered it next to the label to finish the card.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped part of the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime cling stamp set in the upper corner in Sahara Sand ink and adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat.

This card was pretty easy to put together and is so elegant!! The Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime and Forever Blossoms are just two of the beautiful wedding themed stamp sets currently available. And be sure to check out the Love You Always foil sheets and other specialty papers to give your wedding card an extra elegant touch.

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes Winter Wedding Card

Good Morning! Today I have snowflake Wedding card made with the beautiful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the pretty Snowflake Splendor designer series paper! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper to a Whisper White mat. I cut out snowflakes with the So many Snowflakes dies from Silver Foil and Whisper White and adhered them to the panel.

I cut the large fancy label from a Whisper White panel with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and embossed it with the retiring Winter Snow embossing folder. I stamped the beautiful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Seaside Spray panel and sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder. I heat set the powder until shiny and after it cooled, I cut it with the next largest Stitched So Sweetly die. I adhered the labels together with liquid glue and to the panel with dimensionals.

I adhered the panel to the front of a Seaside Spray card front with dimensionals and adhered a Seaside Spray metallic bow under the label with a glue dot. I finished the card front with rhinestone gems.

I adhered another silver foil die cut snowflake to a Whisper White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Snowflake Splendor DSP before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I think the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes stamp set is the most beautiful ever for Wedding cards. And while snowflakes are not traditional for weddings, the Snowflake Splendor DSP is beautiful and wonderful for a Winter Wedding! It’s currently on sale, along with the Winter Snow embossing folder, and it’s perfect for making cards for winter celebrations and sending winter greetings long after Christmas.

Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime Best Wishes Card

Good Morning! Today I have a pretty card for a very special person made with the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime cling stamp set, the Lasting Elegance Dies and the Magic In This Night designer series paper. The Magic In This Night paper is for Halloween, but it has some gorgeous floral images, so I thought I would pair it with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Last a Lifetime stamp set for a Wedding or Birthday card for that Halloween lover celebrating in the fall. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Magic In This Night designer series paper to the front of a Basic Black card base. I cut a strip of Basic Black with the fancy border die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the black background paper from the Magic In This Night designer series paper. I cut the end with the Triple Banner punch and adhered it to the card front.

I cut a Cajun Craze panel with the large die from the Lasting Elegance Dies and adhered it to a Basic Black scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I finished the card front with a black glitter ribbon bow and three iridescent pearls.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime stamp set in Basic Black on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower in Cajun Craze after stamping off once. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Magic In This Night designer series paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So this is a different card, and not for everyone, but there are so many Halloween lovers out there, that you must know someone who would love to receive a goth card for a special birthday or wedding.

Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet Wedding Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made an elegant wedding card with the new Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set to share today.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

I started by stamping the Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp set on a panel of Basic Black card stock using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the third largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies. I cut a panel of Gold Foil and ran it through the Subtle embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I popped the embossed gold foil on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. I popped the floral embossed basic black die cut panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Whisper White. I sprinkled Gold embossing powder on it and heat set. I cut it out with a Stitched Nested Label die. I stamped the top of the birthday cake from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration stamp set twice on a panel of Basic Black card stock in VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled them with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut each cluster with the coordinating die from the Birthday Dies and I fussy cut the top flower in each cluster. I put one aside for the inside of the card.

I cut the leaf spray from the Birthday dies on a panel of Gold foil giving me two dies. I adhered the dies and label to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the Happy Birthday to You flower to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a gold glitter enamel dot.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Blossoms on a Whisper White panel using VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. I added a strip of Gold foil that was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail. I finished the inside with the second Happy Birthday to You embossed flower.

It’s fun to use Foil in making cards, and it is so elegant and beautiful when embossed. Good thing there are Weddings to have an excuse to be so extravagant!

Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake Wedding Card

Good Morning! June is a big wedding month and today I have a white and silver wedding card featuring the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake photopolymer stamp set.

I started by embossing a piece of shimmer white cardstock using the beautiful Country Floral embossing folder. Since the paper will sometimes shrink lengthwise after being embossed, I add an extra 1/8 inch to the length and then after embossing, I remeasured it and trim off the excess. This way I get the exact measurement I need. I then attached the embossed piece to a Silver Foil mat and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using snail.

I then stamped the floral cake, cake stand and the floral topper from the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake stamp set on Whisper White using Versamark ink after dusting the cardstock with the embossing buddy. The embossing buddy is necessary for most embossing to keep the powder on the stamped image and minimize the stray pieces of embossing powder on the cardstock where you don’t want it. There are usually a few pieces that I still need to pick off with a pick. Then I sprinkled silver embossing powder on the images and set them with the heat tool. I punched the cake and cake stand with the Stampin’ Up! Cake Builder punch and fussy cut the flower topper with paper snips. I punched two more pieces of the cake and cake stand and glued them to the back of the embossed pieces with multipurpose liquid glue. This way I had thicker pieces, kind of like chipboard and it gives more dimension to the label. It’s pretty easy to do with the punch and these shapes!

I then took the largest of the Stitched Nested labels and die cut a part of the label from Thick Whisper White cardstock. I dusted the end with the embossing buddy and stamped the Mr & Mrs sentiment with Versamark ink. I sprinkled the sentiment with silver embossing powder and heat set it. I then glued the cake, cake stand and topper to the label and popped it on the card with dimensionals. I finished it off with 3 small rhinestone jewels.

For the inside of the card, I stamped and embossed the wedding sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake Photopolymer Stamp Set on Whisper White cardstock. I added a strip of Whisper White embossed with the country floral embossing folder and matted it with Silver Foil before attaching it to the inside of the card.

Silver Foil really dresses up a card and makes wedding cards extra special and they go so nicely with silver embossing powder. The Country Floral Embossing folder also adds a lovely touch to wedding cards. They just don’t photograph well because of the shine and sparkle – oh well!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
