June is the most romantic time of year... the time that Brides and Grooms decide to tie the knot. Ah, romance is in the air. I love making cards for weddings, so I hope you do to and will join me for the Wedding Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This card was made with several items available only to demonstrators during the Sneak Peek of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog. The card stocks I used iare my new favorites. I think I'll be buying a lot of them over the next two years. They are just two of the new In-Colors (available for two years) Pool Party and Island Indigo. Aren't they just beautiful together? Just YUMMY!!!!! And the Marina Mist Seam Binding ribbon goes pretty well with it also. Also on this card from the new IB&C is the string of dangling crystals stamp. It comes from the new My Friend stamp set. I added the rhinestones so it would look like a chrystal chandelier. From the Summer Mini is the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch that I made the lacy border with and used to trim out the sentiment. To do all the stamping I mixed a little VersaMark re-inker with Island Indigo re-inker and after stamping, added Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Stunning, just Stunning. I will certainly be trying this technique again. It was co easy and the results in real life are spectacular. The other main focal point on this card is the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I embossed it with the Big Shot on the edge of the card stock, cut around it and backed it with the Island Indigo card stock, left a small margin and cut around the same shape, leaving a stunning look for this wedding card. If you are interested in having any of the items lised in this project, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
