I am loving the weather so much at the moment & guess who is on holiday this week? YIPEE.
So because today was so glorious, instead of staying in doors & doing my blog post I’m afraid I made the most of it & spent the day pootling in the garden so I hope you can forgive me.
Today I will continue my spotlight on the mini catalogue & concentrate this weeks posts to the stamp set called Marry Me (w121929 c122003) a beautiful set consisting of 6 lovely stamps that are perfect for weddings but can also be used at other times as I will show you in the next couple of days.
When I first saw this set I pictured this card in my head & I’m so pleased with how it has turned out. I used Whisper White to stamp on but prior to stamping the happy couple I made the arch out of scrap paper & then used my ink pads to add the colour of the church to the card before using Daffodil Delight & More Mustard to make the archway the couple are standing in.
I wanted the couple to stand out even more so I used Black embossing powder to give them a wonderful sheen & some Dazzling Diamond added to the veil added that all important bling.
I wanted the greeting to appear in a heart but unfortunately I could not get one to fit, so I used one of the hearts out of the Timeless type junior alphabet die as a template & then just increased its size slightly when I came to cut it around the words – Perfect.
