Wedding card

This is a card i helped my cousin Madison make. Her grade 2 teacher is getting married and we wanted to make her a purple card because that is her favourite colour. We used tons of cute little embelishments like the purple buttons and brads. Also my rainbow pigment ink pad looks really cool with the stampin up Artfully Asian stamp.
Madison did all the inking around the edges and she is quite the talented little stamper. She planned the whole layout and it was her awesome plan to use the rainbow ink. so cool! Its so great to decorate the inside too... it really adds to the card

Another of my favourite safety pins with the charm on the inside :)

Colour Wash



Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you this card I made! I used an interesting technique from Tim Holtz. You can find it here >> http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/12_tags_of_christmas_tag_2/

The only thing i did different was i used white embossing powder instead of the white dabber and clear powder. It was a really fun technique i would highly recomend.

Supply list:

  • ink- bordering blue (SU), note quite navy (SU), and tea dye distress ink
  • stamps- big and wild things (gel-a-tins)
  • paper- Creamy caramel, not quite navy, whisper white (all SU)
  • other- not quite navy SU pen, hodgepodge hardware, SU brads, sewing machine
