Purse Inspired Notecard

Today I was inspired by a purse and wallet my daughter received for her birthday.  I knew the Rockabilly DSP (retired) has the black/polka dot paper to match the bag.  I used Melon Mambo for the scallop circle and the Jumbo Outline Alphabet for the "C" and color it in with the Melon Mambo Stampin' Write marker.  I also used the Note of Thanks stamp set that was an Under $10 deal from the Spring'Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog.

Bridal Shower Card

I've been in a wedding kind of mood lately.  I am doing a workshop for a soon-to-be bride and I'm also having a wedding card class next week, hence the bridal cards.  I got the idea for this card over at Julie Marshall's here.  Although I love Julie's card with the "pretty in pink" cardstock, I changed mine to "bashful blue" because of the sentiment I used from the "Blissful Bride" stamp set.  All products used are Stampin' Up! (Vintage Wheel, Vintage Vogue stamp set, rhinestone brads, dazzling diamonds, flowers from the Pretties Kit Whisper White, Bashful Blue and Basic Black cardstock, bashful blue and whisper white tafetta ribbon)

Yesterday while traveling to an event with my aunt she asked me to make her a bridal shower card.  I decided that it would be safe to go with black and whiteand this is what I came up with.  I used the Specialty Paper "Bride" along with organza ribbon, pearls from the "Pretties Kit" and the "Blissful Bride" stamp set.  I punched out the "For the bride" with the "Jewelry Tag" punch.  The die cut is non-SU.  Although the picture is a little off in shading (still working on my photography issues), the dress and the edges of the oval have "dazzling diamonds" applied to them.  We'll be creating this card in my wedding card class next week on July 29th.
