Thank You Card Set

This card I made into a set that is now available in my Etsy store. The peacock is heat embossed to give it some dimension. I used mainly Stampin' Up! materials in this set. The peacock was stamped in SU!'s basic black craft ink and then heat embossed with SU!'s clear embossing powder. I used Tempting Turquoise card stock for the blue along with Pink Passion for the pink cards in this set. This set was a lot of fun to create and was inspired by Mary Fish's post. Thanks for inspiration Mary!

Place Cards

Place cards are the final item from my sister's wedding. I'll be posting some other designs I've been working on  over the next couple of days! These are the place cards I made using the scraps from the program fans. It's Very Vanilla card stock. The swirl is Sizzix die that was adhered using the Xyron sticker maker and Mellow Moss card stock. The names were printed on clear shipping labels. Enjoy!

Hotel Welcome Notes for Gift Bags

These notes were created for the out of town guest bags given out at the hotel for my sister's wedding. These were fun to make and add a touch of class to the welcome bags! Using the Big Shot Top Note die, I cut out Top Note shape using Very Vanilla card stock. Then using Baroque Motifs stamp set, I stamped the background in Mellow Moss ink. I printed out the verbiage on vellum paper and also cut this out using the Top Note in the Big Shot. Adhered the two with SU!'s Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon and voila, you have your welcome notes!

Wedding Program Fans

With my sister getting married outdoors in August, she really loved the idea of program fans. With a little bit of research, we found a few templates and was able to bring this to life! Using Stampin' Up! products, these fans were pretty easy to make. I used Very Vanilla card stock, Baroque Border stampin' around wheel and Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon. With snail adhesive & mini glue dots to adhere the ribbon, the program fans came to life! 
First, I printed the front and back of the programs on the Very Vanilla 8.5" x 11" card stock. I then trimmed it down and used the  3/16 Inch Corner Rounder Punch to round the corners. 
Next I stamped the fronts of the programs using  Baroque Border stampin' around wheel and the Stampin' Around Wheel Guide. The ink I used was Close to Cocoa.
The next step was to adhere the fronts and backs together on a jumbo craft stick (available at your local craft store or Walmart). I used  Snail Adhesive on the sticks the front and sides of the card.
The last and final step was adhering the ribbon. Using  Mellow Moss 3/8 Inch Taffeta Ribbon and  Mini Glue Dots, I tied a piece of 6" ribbon to the stick.

Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

My first custom order was my sister's rehearsal dinner invitation. I just received the "Cheers to You" stamp set from Stampin' Up! and it was the perfect set for this occasion. The ovals were created using the Big Shot. Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip card stock was also used to create this invite. Can't forget the Dazzling Diamonds glitter touch for the champagne glasses - although it's tough to see in this photo.

Some other designed as possibilities for this occasion are:

Jack & Jill Shower Invitation & Thank You Notes

Here are the shower invitations I created. I kept it simple and created Thank You notes to match. They held a Jack and Jill shower, so I wanted something that wouldn't be the typical "bridal shower" invite. I used Stampin' Up! materials which include Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip card stock and Tagger's Dozen stamp set. The envelope was stamped with $1 stamp from Michael's.The "Thank You" notes also used Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip card stock from Stampin' Up! along with the Sincere Thanks Stamp set and a few punches.
