But first, my Mom is just taking up cardmaking, so this afternoon we shared techniques and supplies and put this card together using some paper Mom recently purchased from Stampin Up. We used some of my blue scraps, a bit of ribbon, used the Fiskars threading water border punch, punched out a couple of Martha butterflies and added a few pearls. Then using CTMH ink, we added the sentiment. I love the freshness of the blue on white.
Then tonight, I created some wedding inspired cards based on the challenge at CBC.
The first card is a direct scraplift of an idea my Mom shared with me today. I really like the swiss dot embossed dress with a bit of brown trim. I envision this as a card for the bride-to-be.
Then I created the next card based on CPS sketch 114. I was also inspired today to use my Spellbinders dies and popped up the sentiment in the hole created by cutting out a circle. I also broke into some Jim Holtz stamps and love them!
I finished my creative session by making this sour cream container. I have shared this idea before but I do think filled with the bride and groom's favourite candy they would make lovely table favours .
I am often out scrapbooking with friends on friday night(which I love)so it was nice to create at home tonight and use some of my neglected things!
