Lovely Love

I needed a change of pace, so in honor of some weddings coming up, I decided to create a few wedding cards.

First up, my friend Nicole is getting married in September and her colors are brown and pink so I decided to combine triple time stamping with heat embossing:

My embossing powder really didn't want to be my friend this morning, so it's a little wonky, but I have plenty of time to redo it if I decide to use this one. (Secret Garden and A Dozen Thoughts stamp sets)

Then I switched gears completely and decided to create one based on the theme of her wedding: country chic. Her concept is sundresses, cowboy boots, and pearls. Fits her perfectly.

This one just felt a little more country with the woodgrain embossing folder by the Paper Studio. I used Flower Shop and Petite Petals and stamped in Cherry Cobbler on top of some pink scrap paper. The leaves are die cut using my Big Shot and a die from Sizzix. I honestly have no idea where I picked up the sentiment, but I love it! I'm leaning toward using this one for her wedding. Seems to fit her personality a little bit more.

Next up, my friends Roxy and Nik and are getting married in October. (See, still plenty of time to play and change my mind!)

Their wedding is going to be a more formal affair, so I wanted a card that was a little bit more elegant and I always love the white matted on white look. I used mosaic madness and stamped in So Saffron and Smoky Slate. The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts and stamped in Chocolate Chip. I like the look of this one, but who knows, I may change my mind later! (Their main color is persimmon, so I may try something with Cajun Craze later to try to incorporate some orange...)

I also wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all the people who've stopped by my blog recently. Your comments are truly heartwarming and it makes me smile to think that others love my cards and maybe take some inspiration from them.  So thank you to all of you!
