Whole Lot of Love Wedding Card

We attended a sweet outdoor wedding recently and this is the card I created using the Whole Lot of Lovely suite.   The delicate combo of Powder Pink and Whisper White on the floral paper is so pretty and the shimmery Powder Pink ribbon, Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper and the gold Mini Sequin trim gave it a special sparkle.
A couple of tips for making this card:  Use the Layering Circle Framelit that is just a smidgen bigger than the Eastern Medallion Thinlit.  Nest the two together on top of the white paper and use a Post-it note to hold them in place before running it through the Big Shot.  Use that same Layering Circle Framlit to then cut a circle of Powder Pink cardstock to layer behind the white diecut.  This makes the delicate white medallion stand out on the floral paper.
Happy stamping!

Inky Friends New In-Color Blog Hop

Welcome to our second Inky Friends Blog Hop!  We are a group of long time stamping friends that have reorganized to bring you fresh ideas for Stampin' Up products.   Our hop today focuses on the five new In-Colors that were introduced at the beginning of the month.  These colors are available for two years and always are right on trend.

Berry Burst is a bold color that is lovely for a wedding or bridal shower card either as a monochromatic card
Wedding card with matching gift enclosure
or as a tiny accent color.
Bridal shower card with coordinating package tag
I find I am using the Wood Words stamp set and matching Wood Crate thinlits often.  It is an awesome all-around combo that works for so many different occasions -both masculine and feminine.  
The Berry Burst ribbon can be pulled apart for a delicate accent
