Some days it doesn't take much to make me laugh...

I did an Google image search and couldn't find an original source for this, but I saw it on Pinterest.

My First Wedding Card!

As far as I can remember I've never made a wedding card before, so this is my first!  I took inspiration from this card by Julie Davidson.

It's hard to tell, but I used Shimmery White card stock and all the black stamped parts are embossed.

This new Gold Foil paper from from the Holiday Catalog is so pretty I had a hard time cutting into it!

Stamps:  Chalk Talk, Blooming With Kindness, Label Love
Paper:  Shimmery White, Basic Black, Gold Foil
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:   Black Embossing Powder, Modern Mosaics Embossing Folder, Artisan Label Punch, Label Bracket Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits, Dimensionals, Basic Pearls

Wow!  That's quite a list!  3 different stamp sets?!

What's the largest number of stamp sets you've used on one card?

Flashback Friday - Beary Best Friends

I needed to make a card for my sweet little niece who's turning 5 and I realized that I just don't have a lot of stamp sets to make cards for little girls!  

Now, I'm not saying there aren't girls who like trains, and dinosaurs, and sports, (all of which I have stamp sets) but I don't have many sets I would automatically reach for to make cards for girls.

Good thing I've held onto this retired stamp set called Beary Best Friends!

To make the polka dot dress I stamped the image on a piece of Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper and carefully cut it out with my paper snips.  A little Crystal Effects on the eyes and nose makes them shiny and dimensional.

What retired sets are you hanging onto?
