Wedding Cards

Hi everyone :-) Wow 2 posts in one day!!! Yippee.

I want to share with you some wedding cards I made for my booth in the Art Festival I mentioned in the previous post. These cards were sold too! So happy :-) here they are...

I used the Luxury Stack from DCWV and Spellbinders dies on card 1 and 2, Wedding Stamp set from Inkadinkado (sorry don't have the packaging).

I made 3 fish tail banners and embossed them using Sizzix "Dress Form set" embossing folders, pack of 4 folders... these 3 and a dress form folder. I lined the bottom of the card with a beautiful white heart trim. Inkadinkado Wedding stamp set again :-)

This one is really simple but oh so elegant, it looks like the couple are dancing under twinkling stars :-) I used Sizzix "Circle Frame & Rosemary set" embossing folder. For the bottom I used one of the same folders from the "Dress Form set" embossing folders. Liquid pearls on her dress and all around.

For this card I was happy to play for the first time with my large Hero Arts "Flourish stamp"! I stamp it and then fussy cut one side of it and pop it up with foam tape. The pink paper is also from DCWV "Luxury Stack".

So I hope you like them, I had so much fun creating these cards :-)
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!


Altered Wooden Boxes, Frame & Heart boxes...

Hi everyone :-) hope you guys are doing great!!!

So I've been extremely busy this past 2 weeks, we had an Art Festival in my home town this past Saturday and I had to prepare items for my booth (my first time and it was so much work) I almost backed out half way because I was really tired and just wanted to get a good night sleep lol... but glad I did as these projects here I'm showing you today were sold at the Art Festival (happy dance) :-)

So Thank goodness I took pictures before taking them out there... and here they are :-)

 I Altered this wooden box with beautiful Prima Tea Thyme papers and Trinkets.

 Box measured 5"x5" and 4" deep.

 A really small wooden Heart Box using the paper that needs no mention but will anyways lol... Marion Smith Romance Novel for Prima.

Wooden Frame using Prima's Almanac papers and Prima Stencil "Adorable". 

Handmade from scratch large Heart Box (love making these).

 It is very big and would be perfect for a bride to hold keepsake of her special day.

So those are just a fraction of my projects made for my booth, which was a huge success! I hope you like them and Thank you so much for visiting today. See you again soon :-)
