Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of August! This months theme is geared around a pre-determined card sketch. I am super excited to create from a sketch because that takes most of the designing lull out of my busy week. l can't wait to share my creation with you! :)
You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Sandra Motts' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.
Here is what the card sketch looks like...pretty clean and simple, right?!! I thought so, too!
It has been a while since I have played with the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, I thought it was perfect for the help I needed. You see, this large pack of 12" x 12" designer series paper is packed full of coordinating colors to mix-n-match...a definite helpful starting tool for the creative mind that might be in a creative rut. So, I picked on the colors of Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, and Shimmery White cardstocks. Oh, so pretty!!
- Next up was choosing what stamp set I needed for the special occasion that I had in mind. And, look-ey there! I couldn't pass up the Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits...especially, since this bundle is only available during the month of August. Plus, among all of the images (12 to be exact), there is an image of a bell that can be used for any occasion...in my case, I needed it to be wedding bells. Don't forget, you can purchase this bundle for a 10% savings.
- Now, you may be asking "how did she make that skinny Blackberry Bliss border for the Shimmery White Stitched Frame layer?" Well, I die cut two of the same size Stitched Framelits from Blackberry Bliss, cut each one in half (1 cut vertical...the 2nd cut horizontal), then adhered each half to fit and border the Shimmery White framelit layer. I needed the matted layer to be skinnier than the next sized Stitched Framelits die, and this was the easiest way that gave me the result I was needing. **squeal**
Did you notice the the embossed texture of the So Saffron layer? OMGosh!! The amazing Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing folder left that mark! Isn't it perfect for this layout? I also love dimension...especially with a wedding card. The Stitched Framelits layer is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, as well as, the wedding bells, sentiment strip (which comes from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set), and the faux Glimmer Enamel Dot (made from a small punched circle using the Gingerbread punch and coloring with Wink of Stella). Sooo, so pretty! Creating wedding cards makes me so happy....after all, it is a happy occasion. :)
