TSTR #78–Pink Wedded Bliss


What a surprise I got this week when I looked at The Shabby Tea Room’s challenge!  After making wedding cards last week, I get to make another one for their challenge this week.  I just love making wedding cards so this has been absolutely the best challenge so far.

This week’s challenge is called Week #78 - 'Pink Wedded Bliss'. The challenge is to create a card or project with a wedding, anniversary or celebration theme and use PINK, BLACK AND ANY NEUTRALS (white, cream, kraft). 

Here is the card I came up with to meet their challenge.

TSTR 78 Pink Wedded Bliss

The colors are so sweet and soft!

And here are my favorites from the inspiration photos:

The flowers are made from satin ribbon and the leaves are quilled.  I didn’t have any quilling paper or a quilling tool so I just cut some cardstock 1/8 inch wide 12 inches long and used a wooden skewer.  I found it to be so much fun and I liked the results so much I have ordered paper, tool, and a book!  I can’t wait to learn more about this craft.  I bet you’ll be seeing some more of this lol.

The base of the card is from my new The Luxury pearlized and metallic pack.  I just love the paper in this pack. The colors are gorgeous and the patterns are soft and delicate.  I cut 2 soft pink pieces of textured card stock and used EK Success card makers to cut the corners. The paper inserted into the corners are also from The Luxury pack and are embossed using Cuttlebug embosslets.

The medallion and the LOVE sentiment are stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s stamps. The set used in the medallion is called Nature’s Path.  Inkadinkado’s Glam Gold pen was used for stamping the sentiments.  The frame is made by placing two Spellbinders Labels Four on a metallic sheet and running it through my Big Shot.  I used a pretty pink metallic paper to make it.

Thank you for looking at my card. I hope you enjoyed your visit.  I cannot believe we are getting so close to Halloween… Time to start on those cards!

Until next time, have a crafty time! Please stop by again and don’t forget to leave your comments.
