I am still working on a big batch of wedding stationery - as the invites went out a few weeks ago, I think it's OK to let you have a look. I work in steps so at the moment I have all the base cards scored and folded, the front panel die cut, embossed and ribbon attached. The wee boxes to the left are the 200 bows which have yet to be attached - at least I could sit outside in the sunshine while I tied them!! I still have wee labels to die cut and attach, a strip of bling to add and the insert to do. Then most of the process to repeat with the place cards! To visit the other work desks this week, visit Julia HERE.
Here is a card I made recently for a school Principal who is getting married. The blackboard was made using wood grained card I've had for ages and blackboard paper from SU. The sentiment stamp is also from SU, stamped with whisper white ink. The image and the paper is from LOTV and the school desk is a really old Magnolia stamp, coloured with Promarkers/Flexmarkers - the apple was then coated with glossy accents.
It's been a very long time since I entered a challenge but when I noticed this week's I love Promarkers challenge was 'Transport', and I was asked to make a retirement card for a mechanic, then this wee stamp from a retired SU set called 'Countryside' came to mind. I am not sure where I got the wee spanner die - its part of a set of four different tools that I've had for ages (may be MFT). And of course it was coloured with a mixture of Promarkers, Flexmarkers and the blender pen. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and the sentiment stamp by LOTV.
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
