Hey there! I needed a card to match a belated wedding gift garnished with a fall spray from Hobby Lobby, so I used a You've Got This stamp to match the one in the spray!
This card previews a sneak peek of the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, available to order tomorrow, November 1st!
I rubbed a Bermuda Bay ink pad on the negative side of the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder before embossing a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock. After embossing with the Big Shot, this gives the background a much richer look. I stamped the bloom from You've Got This with Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Shimmery White card stock before coloring with Light and Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers. I added some Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to the center, Old Olive to the leaves and stem, and used the Stampin' Color Lifter to blend and soften the colors. Stampin' Blends make you look like a pro without the problems!
This present is for a couple who were married in July (we weren't able to attend the wedding), so I used this elegant greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched with the Classic Label Punch. Anytime during your first year of marriage you are a newlywed, right?
I used 1/4" Copper Trim for my embellishment (shown here on an experimental card with Fun Foam) The Copper Trim is pretty tied in a neat bow, but it becomes gorgeous when you pull the fibers apart!
When you stretch the fibers you end up with this unique and fancy bow! I love it!
Inside I used a sentiment from the Rose Wonder set. Again, this sentiment is appropriate for a wedding gift any time in the first year, or even an anniversary!
I colored the inside bloom with my Stampin' Blends markers. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I get to pre-order new products to play with them before customers can order them. We've had alcohol markers before, but there were manufacturing problems that necessitated a recall. After playing with them a bit, I think they've got all of the kinks worked out and I love them!
