Rustic and Elegant Weddings!

Posted on

The Wedding Trend for awhile now has been Rustic and Elegant. It seems everyone is doing the burlap, doily, lace, pearls, mason jars, barn theme! Here are a couple samples of cards that I have recently done to help out a friend with her daughter’s wedding!!!

Thank You Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here are a few of the items that were made! The cards above were the Thank You cards for the Bride to send out to all of the guests after the wedding! They were quick and simple and kept the theme of the wedding going! And speaking of cards, I created these adorable ring binders for the Bride to keep all of the cards she received together! The one has the last name initial on it and the other one has the initials of the Bride and Groom! I kept the doily, lace, pearl theme with these items too!

Wedding Invitation, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is the actual Wedding Invitation (well half of it to keep the privacy of the Bride and Groom). The wording was on the right and on the left was this fabulous white doily using the Hello Doily Stamp! It was stamped and then embossed in Whisper White which gave it a fabulous raised texture! This piece of Crumb Cake was also layered on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock but I didn’t get a picture of the final piece.

Bridal Shower Tags, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This adorable tag was used at the Bridal Shower on the little tea cups that everyone got as a favor for coming! Again I kept with the theme and used the Victoria Crochet Trim for a rustic look!

And last but not least, this is the wedding card that I made! Again I used the Hello Doily Stamp and embossed it. Then I took a sponge dauber (love them) and added a little Chocolate Chip ink around the doily. I really loved how it turned out!

Apothecary Art!!!

Posted on

Apothecary Art, www.LaurasStampPad.comI love the color purple and this card turned out AMAZING!!!! I used the Apothecary Art Stamp Set and matching Labels Collection Framelits! I love how these matching framelits cut out the image so perfectly! And then the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder makes the background look so amazing and elegant! It gives the card texture and depth too! As for the flowers in the stamped image (use Stazon ink when coloring images so it doesn’t bleed), I used Blender Pens and reinker to color the flowers! I love this way of coloring because you can start off light and work your way darker! When using markers, you get a dark ink saturation with the first stroke of the marker but with the blender pens, you are picking up the color and adding it in. I hope you enjoyed this card and try out your Blender Pens!

More Wedding Invitations!!!

Posted on

I have said it before and I’ll say it again….I LOVE WEDDINGS! They are just so amazing – the love, family time, the day every girl dreams of, and so much more! I love it and I love that even though my wedding day is over I can still be apart of so many weddings by helping brides!

Inside Wedding Invitation, www.LaurasStampPad.comThis is a wedding invitation that I have recently finished! I love all of the textures and layers in this one! So elegant with the lattice and white on white look! This is a square invitation so it does require more postage but it just wouldn’t be the same if it was rectangle! The picture on the left is the inside of the invitation. The colors are flip-flopped though. The invitation is Tempting Turquoise and the pocket on the bottom is Calypso Coral. The pocket held the Reception Information and RSVP card and envelope! I added some texture to the pocket with the same embossing folder that I used on the front – Perfect Polka Dot (my favorite). You can see the Save The Dates from this wedding here.

If you are getting married or planning any other type of party and need invitations, menu cards, party favors, or any other item, let me know! I would love to help you create the greatest party ever! I can make the items for you or help you with everything you need so you can use your crafty side!

I LOVE MONKEYS!!!!

Posted on

Have I ever mentioned before how I LOVE monkeys! Sock Monkeys are my favorite and I have at least 8 that I can think of off hand right now! They are just soooo cute! I’m not the only one here, right? Okay so maybe I am!

Monkey Invitations, www.LaurasStampPad.comSo I had someone reach out to me to make their daughter’s 1st Birthday invitations and when I asked for the theme she sent me a photo of the plates that are going to be used! THERE ARE MONKEYS ON THERE! I knew right then and there, this is my dream job! Here are 2 samples that I came up with! What do you think? I used punches for the little monkey faces – circles, ovals, hearts, and flowers! I do think that the one of the left needs bigger hands and maybe Chocolate Chip hands, rather than Crumb Cake! I’m so excited to be able to help someone create an amazing Birthday for their child and at the same time I am loving what I am doing!!! If you need invitations for your next Birthday, Anniversary, or Wedding, feel free to reach out to me!
