Brushed Silver Wedding

Did you know that there is a fantastic Valentine/Love themed stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog?
Did you know that the Holiday Mini Catalog expires in just 5 days?!!
Yep, it's true. Which means that you only have 5 days left to purchase the You Are Loved stamp set OR most anything else you need from that awesome collection!

Here's a card we did at my December card classes using the You Are Loved stamp set for a wedding theme.

We used Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush cardstock - love that purple combo! And the main heart image is stamped with Versamark then heat embossed with Pewter Embossing Powder. Instead of cutting it out, we tore around the image, giving a texture contrast to the layer underneath. It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the next layer, we ran the cardstock through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder. To give it the silvery sheen, we took a sponge brush and lightly brushed on some Platinum Shimmer Paint. It dries to the touch within a minute since it's formulated for paper.
The card front was finished off with some Whisper White Organza Ribbon and the bow was attached with Mini Glue Dots.

Here's a peek at the inside:

The flowering vine image from You Are Loved was stamped in Wisteria Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock. The greeting, from Word Play, was stamped with Concord Crush ink.

Here's a look at the stamp set:
It's item # 123779 and is only $23.95 in Clear Mount.
The Sweet Friend greeting fits perfectly in the Modern Label Punch, and of course, the "Love" image was made for the Decorative Label Punch. I love when stamps and punches coordinate - it makes our stamping that much easier!

  1. Very beautiful! Really like the touch of sponging the silver on the striped background!
