Wedding Card no. #1

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you a Wedding Card I made by request for a couple that's getting married today. I personally don't know them, but I do want to wish them all the best in their common life, a lot of love and understanding, and their marriage to be beautiful as music. :o)


I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my first stamp from Stamping Bella and the only one I have for now. :o)

I also used one of my favorite font I downloaded from dafont: Impact Label Font. Love it!! :o)
Important: Read licences before downloading.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper, left it dry for couple minutes and colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I'm so satisfied with my coloring of this couple. :o)


After coloring I had no idea what to do with the image. I stared at the image couple days and decided to go with CAS design. No surprise. LOL :o)

I glued a note sheet paper stripe directly on a white top folded card base, trimmed the watercolor paper to preferable size, glued it on a 2 mm thick foam sheet rectangle and glued it on the card base.

I printed couple's names and wedding day date on a white cardstock paper (I used two different font sizes), cut them out, traced edges with black marker and got lovely labels, as if I had label maker. I added foam tape on the back of "labels", glued them on the card and my card was finished. :o)

CAS Christening Cards (Fairy Tale Challenge #169)


Hi everyone! :o)


It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #169, Alles was Flügel hat / Things with wings.

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely embossing folder.


Here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple) Christening Cards.


I made this two cards for my niece and nephew, my cousin's kids, who will be christened this Saturday.

These were super easy and fast to create.

I blended Distress Inks (DI) directly on white top folded card bases, splattered cards with water and DI mixed with water. I used DI Spun Sugar for her and DI Blueprint Sketch for him.

When I was satisfied with colors and splatters, I glued foam behind white die-cut birds, placed one on each card and my cards were finished. :o)



I got die-cut birds I used and many many more from friend Valentina of Barvito malo mestoThank you Valentina!! :o)


Both cards measure: 92 mm x 127 mm (3 5/8" x 5")
List of supplies:
  • white cardstock paper
  • birds die-cuts (got this and many more from friend Valentina)
  • Tim's Holtz Distress Inks:
    • Spun Sugar
    • Blueprint Sketch
  • foam sheet scraps 1 mm thick
  • Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer
  • bone folder
  • Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tools
  • Ranger Heat It Tool
  • Marabu fine rounded paint brush no. #0
