Suite Sayings Wedding Card

Today's card is a lovely wedding card made for Mr. & Mrs. A.J. Stoll.  Heather and A.J. were married on Sunday, which marked the beginning of Forever for them.  Congratulations to a wonderful couple!

The sentiment is stamped from Suite Sayings and the flower image is from Beautiful Bunch, punched out with the matching Fun Flower punch.  Both the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and Fun Flower punch are retiring.  The flower layered in the back was punched out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  The drapery fold was created using the Neutrals Color Collection Designer Series Paper in Silver.

I have seen several of these style cards on the internet, but this one was inspired by Connie Babbert.  You can see her original card here.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my card.

Helping Me Grow

This is one of my very favorite cards we made at Stamp Club.  It uses the Helping Me Grow stamp set and Rose Wonder stamp set, both of which are returning in the 2016-2017 catalog!.  I also used that great Brick Wall Embossing Folder (this, too, is returning!).  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

I CASE'd this idea from Sandi MacIver.  You can see her original card here.

Love & Laughter Wedding Shower

Hello friends!  The graduation/wedding season is upon me in full force this year.  I have six graduations and one wedding to attend in the next couple of weeks and have been hard at work preparing those cards, as well as a large number of family birthdays in the month of May.  Preparations are well under way for my Annual New Catalog Open House on June 11th.

Because I have so many irons in the fire right now, I have been lax at posting cards for you.  Today, here is a quick post showing you the wedding shower card I made for a shower last month.  This card is a swing card with an oval opening.  It is kind of hard to see the mechanics of the card from a photo, but I think they are really cool!

This card was made using the retired set Love & Laughter.
