Label Love image was heat embossed using silver embossing powder
One edge of the texture embossed piece was trimmed, to leave an interesting border.
Card was inspired by a Pintrest card created by Angela McKay.
I have a co-worker who needed a card for a wedding this weekend and she asked me to make one for the occasion. I guess the couple likes to bike, and I immediately thought of this retired stamp set. Because it's a fall wedding, I chose fall colors.
Supplies: Take it To Heart stamp set (retired), Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (W 126255, C 126257), Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler card stock, Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits, Houndstooth (123134), Square Lattice (119976), Perfect Polka Dots (117335), Argyle (127750) embossing folders, Bitty Banners framelits (129267)
You can order these supplies from my online store.
Well that's it from this blogger for today. Come back tomorrow to see how I embellished last week's Christmas card share.
Have fun stampin' it up!
I own quite a few stamps and stamp sets. However, one occasion that I don't have many sets/stamps for is wedding. When I need a wedding card I usually go to my collection of hearts and create a card using those stamps. So, when I saw the Mr. and Mrs. stamp (126663, $8.95) in the new Stampin' Up! catalog I knew it would be one of the first stamps I would order.
Today's card is the first one that I made with that stamp set and I used lots of new product to make it. Here's the scoop. Colors are Pool Party and Basic Black. Don't you love the way they look together? If you were creating this card and knew the wedding colors, it could easily be reproduced to match the bride's occasion by substituting Pool Party with the wedding color.
I used two of the Apothecary Accents Framelits to highlight the stamped image. After cutting the black shape, I used the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder to add an elegant texture to the piece. The stamped image fit perfectly onto the other Apothecary Accent shape. The focal point was embellished using a Glimmer Brad.
The accent border was created with one of the Finishing Touches Edgelit dies with a Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon as a finishing touch.
I have a favor to ask my readers. I have a Beebug Creations Facebook page and I'd love it if you would visit me and LIKE me. Here's the link to check me out.
I hope you enjoyed my card share for today and as always…have fun stampin' it up!
We were challenged to create a project with birds this time at SUO Challenges. Turned out to be a REAL challenge for me as I don't have many "bird" items. I finally decided to use the bird image from the Easy Events stamp set.
Here's the card I came up with:
This card is actually a quick and easy one to make. I stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock and then ran through my Big Shot using the Designer Frames folders. Image was colored with Marina Mist, Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple (for the heart) Stampin' Write Markers.
Sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set, punched with two of our oval punches. Marina Mist card stock, ink and ribbon. Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.
What kind of "for the birds" ideas do you have? Please join us at SUO Challenges and share a project with us!!
DISCLAIMER: Today's card I'm sharing was NOT created by me. It was a swap that my upline received at Leadership in January. I thought it was lovely and wanted to share it.
The stamp set featured in today's card is Love and Laughter. I love the wedding dress image created by all the wedding words. Isn't the Pool Party color set off nicely by the Basic Black? The card maker used the Modern Label Framelits dies to cut her focal image and the Petite Polka Dots embossing folder to add texture.
Thanks for stopping. Have fun stampin' it up!
Here's a fun card for a wedding celebration. This was a choice at my May Card Buffet earlier this month.
The card base is a piece of Basic Gray card stock, run through the Big Shot using the largest Hearts Framelit die. The white dots on each scallop were made with the White Gel Pen.
The white textured heart is a fold out piece and is made using the second largest Hearts Framelit die. To get a fold out the trick is to keep the folded edge JUST BELOW the top of the die. It leaves part of the fold in place when going through the Big Shot.
Then I ran the front of the white textured card piece through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.
Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Basic Gray ink. Bow is made from Basic Black 3/8" Tafetta Ribbon.
I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend. I was busy outside all day on Saturday, and enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day yesterday with my family.
Thanks for stopping. Please feel free to leave me a comment below. I'd love to hear from you.

Today we are attending a wedding…my nephew and his bride. The weather is forecast to be clear and near 60…a treat this time of year in Minnesota!!
Here's the card that I created for their special occasion.
I've been seeing and admiring lots of white on white cards lately, so decided to make their wedding card white on white. It gives such a fresh look. Everything on the card is Stampin' Up! except for the punched hearts border.
Thanks for stopping today – Have fun stampin' it up!
Wouldn't this make a wonderful wedding or anniversary card? I absolutely adore this image from the Take it to Heart stamp set…and it combines so well with the sentiment found in the Loving Thoughts stamp set. Both can be found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
The only thing on this card that isn't Stampin' Up! is the ribbon, which I just happened to discover in my stash. It is a very lightweight ribbon, and I was debating how to attach it to my card. The adhesive would show, no matter what. I settled on using a piece of a Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet. I simply peeled back a small piece of protective covering, lay the riboon on top of the sticky adhesive, lay the protective covering back down over the ribbon and trimmed it off the large piece. Once I got the ribbon off the large sheet, I trimmed the edges of the mutlipurpose adhesive sheet next to the ribbon. It worked wonderfully to hold the ribbon on my card.
Have a wonderful day as you have fun stampin' it up!
Here's another card that was on display on the swap boards at Stampin' Up's! Leadership event. I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of this card!!
This image is from the P.S. I Love You stamp set, but you could just as easily use the heart image from the Take It To Heart stamp set as well. The red matte hearts were created using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit die and the Big Shot.
This would be a great card to create for any "heart" event (wedding, anniversary, etc), not just Valentine's day.

My neice came over on Friday evening and we worked on two kinds of invitations…wedding shower and baby shower. Today I'd like to share with you the wedding invitation we created. (Stop back on Wednesday for the baby shower invite.)
The shower is for my nephew's bride-to-be and I offered to come up with the idea for the invites. The bride has chosen purple (Concord Crush) and teal (Island Indigo) for colors. Dress was made from a die cut Scallop Circle and then trimmed. I used Baroque Motifs stamp set with Concord Crush for the swirl on the dress. Flowers were made with a retired punch. Background was created with a texture plate.
My neice was thrilled with the results and we had LOTS of fun making them together.
Sorry that I haven't posted lately – life has been really busy. Stop back tomorrow for the next SUO Challenge.

This wedding card was one of the choices customers who came to my June Card Buffet were able to create. I love the elegant simplicity of black and white!
The floral image is from the Vintage Vogue stamp set and sentiment is Heard from the Heart. Ink used was Basic Black (even though the sentiment looks more purple in color).
I hold monthly events in my home for local customers. Check out my newsletter or calendar page for monthly event details.

This time, the challenge for SUO Challenges is to create a wedding card. In my last two posts, I shared with you a wedding card that I had made for weddings we actually attended. Today's card is a bit "out of the box" for a wedding, but think that it turned out mightly fine!!
Although I love cards that have lots of detail, my natural tendancy is to go toward clean and simple cards that are easy to make. Today's card is one of these. I started by using part of a piece of designer paper from the Paisley Petals designer paper pack. The desgins in this new pack are simply gorgeous and I wanted to showcase one of them. After I cut the paper to size to fit on a Crumb Cake card base, I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink and rounded three of the four corners. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock, then punched out with the oval punch. To tone down the brightness of the Very Vanilla card stock I lightly sponged over the entire piece with Crumb Cake ink. The Crumb Cake card stock matte was hand cut and the entire piece was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon and bow is Crumb Cake seam binding.
Well, that's my card for this time. Now it's your turn. Create a wedding card and share it with us on SUO Challenges.

Wedding cards are always fun for me to create! We have two weddings this weekend, and this is the card both couples will be receiving. The Bride and Groom hearts are not an original idea with me. I've seen several variations and mine is a combo of them, plus some of my own originality. The paper I used for the "Bride and Groom" is retired SU paper. Border punch is non Stampin' Up! Card base is Basic Black with a piece of Brushed Silver card stock attached on top. I used the Heart Punch and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit. Sentiment is from the Level 3 Hostess set Occasional Quotes. The groom's bow tie is 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon attached with a glue dot and the bride's necklace is made using Adhesive Pearls.
Maybe you've got a wedding coming up soon. Hope this gives you some inspiration for your card idea! Please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by!! Thanks
As always, have fun stampin' it up!
