{It's a Stampin' Up! Wedding!}

A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of going to a friend's wedding.
She had approached me a number of months ago to ask for help designing her wedding invitations, which we did together by having a play with some stamps, ink and card.  After enjoying the process so much she decided to make the decorations and all the bouquets and buttonholes! 

The colour scheme had already been decided, a lovely turquoise, which matched Stampin' Up!s Tempting Turquoise, and with my suggestion we added Lemon Lime Twist to the mix.
Butterflies was also a bit of a theme, so all the fabulous dies came into use along with retired dies and punches that I can't bear to part with.

Over the following months there were sessions cutting and making flowers at my kitchen table as well as an army of bridesmaids at the brides house who rolled and assembled.

Here is the bride's bouquet at the beginning of the assembling process.
We used a ready formed handle with oasis dome, which we hot glued the flowers to.


The happy couple!

These were the butterfly wands for the flower girls, made with a retired die and some current Stampin' Up! ribbon and sequin trim.


These fab table numbers were decorated to co-ordinate with the rest of the scheme and...


these concertina medallions were stamped before folding and decorating to create an impressive centre piece on the tables.


The whole room looked amazing with all the coordinating decorations.


Even the post box had a touch of Stampin' Up! magic!


So as I had to make a card, an knew the colour scheme, I broke out some non SU paper (ssshhhh) and some pretty paper flowers in my stash, along with lots of diecuts - Stampin' Up! of course, and the Glitter Enamel Dots, to make this...



Here is a sped up video of the process.

{OSWW Bookmarks with the Cake Soiree Stamp Set}

I'm a little bit addicted to making bookmarks, you can use this technique to make card backgrounds too. Sadly we are going to be saying goodbye to Wisteria Wonder, the lovely purple that was used in this project.  If you love it, then I suggest you stock up on the refill before stocks run out.





The retirement list is out, and the clearance rack has been updated, so do have a look.

{How to make a 3D Nest card with Stampin' Up! set Flying Home}

I've been getting quite obsessed with watching videos on YouTube that feature technique known as "mixed media".  It basically means to use a variety of different mediums on your art work rather than sticking to one.  The style is also a little bit looser and "messy", and an understanding that beautiful things can be created by deliberate "accident" when using techniques such as spritzing.

It has helped me to re look at some of  the Stampin' Up! products and think of different ways they can be used.

Athough the card below isn't strictly mixed media, it certainly has been inspired by watching people using threads and sisal in their work to create a frothy effect.  The Ready Shreddie was just perfect for creating the result I wanted to carry the theme of the nest.


Here is the video tutorial, in it I refer to another video where I am colouring, unfortunately I seem to have deleted by mistake, however if you would like to see a video where I colour in, please look at this blog post {here}
