Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peek: Happily Ever After and Curly Swirlies
Welcome back for Day 2 of May Sneek Peaks! I hope you enjoyed yesterday's peeks! Today is all about Wedded Bliss!! If you've been looking for something new to add to your wedding collection of stamps, today is your day! I have two projects. The first features the Happily Ever After set.
For my first project, I stamped the flowers from Happily Ever After in Versamark on the Kraft cardstock and embossed them with black embossing powder. I stamped "Mr. & Mrs." onto a piece die cut with the NEW Band It Die. The "&" was stamped and embossed in black and the "Mr./Mrs." was stamped and embossed in white. The leaves were stamped in olive ink, hand cut and adhered to frame the sentiment.
My second project features the Curly Swirlies Dies. I die cut the swirls out of green cardstock so that they would mimic stems for the flowers. The flowers are from the Happily Ever After set, as well as the "LOVE" sentiment. The papers I used are from the Walnut Grove Collection from Pebbles.
The flowers were stamped in Frost White ink onto patterned paper, embossed in white and cut out. I added pearls to the centers of each flower and some Beetle Black Doodle Twine to finish the card.
I hope you've enjoyed today's peeks! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has to show you today!!
