Wedding Wishes

Hello!  I have a wedding card to show you today, made with Creative Inspirations Paints.  (I LOVE these paints!)



I have plenty of 1" wide white cardstock strips, so I painted them with Fairy Dust (on the right)  (it gives a clear shimmer to anything you paint), Silver Frost (middle) and Antique Silver (left) paints.  I used my hydrangea punches on these strips to create a whole bunch of blossoms.


Leftovers go into a little sealed envelope, for another project on another day.


Can you see the amazing shimmer on these flowers?  Look below:


The sentiment and birds are Verve, and the flourishes flowers are Stampin' Up!.  And can you see the oval frame I created?  I used two different sized oval dies, nestled one inside the other, then passed it through the Big Shot.  I popped it up on the oval opening with foam dimensional stickers.

Thanks so much for coming by today!  I love when you visit. 


Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Vintage Vogue - SU; Love Story - Verve
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White - SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black -Tsukineko; Sahara Sand - SU
Other: Hydrangea punches - Martha Stewart; Big Shot; oval die cut - Spellbinders; Damask embossing folder - Sizzix; Fairy Dust, Silver Frost, Antique Silver paints - Creative Inspirations Paints; pearls - Queen & Co., Recollections
