Winter Wedding Wishes

Here in Australia, not many people have weddings in June.

Why not?  Because it’s winter and the weather is much nicer October to March, which is when you are most likely to attend a wedding.

On saying that, planning a February wedding isn’t exactly a walk in the weather park either!

We got married on 13th Feb 2009.  The week leading up to the wedding was 40 degrees (104 Fahrenheit for those of you needing the other scale) on 4 consecutive days.

We’d chosen black suits with black shirts for the guys and heavy red dresses for the girls (crazy I know but I had a vague Valentine’s theme!).  And of course I had layers upon layers of wedding dress!

In a stroke of wedding luck, the weather dipped down to a pleasant 29 degrees and was gorgeous.

You can control lots about the wedding but not weather! I’ve been to weddings where it’s rained, weddings where it’s been cold & weddings where I’ve been blown away.

One thing you can control is a sensational wedding card!!!

This card was a custom request from a friend who went to a winter wedding last weekend.

One of my personalised creations with a design that was inspired by the invite.

The invite had a black & white theme with cute fairy light bunting.

The bride’s new initials will match her husbands so my friend asked that this was a feature of the card.

Would you find it funny or frustrating if your initials were the same?  I ended up with alliterated initials by changing my name – I like it!

This theme was super easy to carry over to the inside of the card with the new Pick a Pattern black & white Washi Tape!

This is one of my all-time favourite wedding sentiments.  You’ll find it in the Better Together stamp set.

And you’ll find all your favourite Stampin’ Up! products in my online store.

Bunting Birthday

I love celebrating birthdays!

I get to buy presents, make cards, eat cake…. what’s not to love?

Today, Mandy, one of our Paper Adventures team members, celebrates her birthday – I bet I know what is on her birthday list!!!  It starts with Stampin’ and ends with Up!

I’m feeling a little theme coming on with these cute necklaces that translate into wonderful birthday cards…

Do you love the criss cross bunting pattern inspired by the necklace design?

Using the recently available SAB set – Any Occasion – I stamped the string in Versamark and heat embossing it in white.

I then added lots of dots in Whisper White and Marina mist that I punched with the Owl Builder Punch.

I love this punch!  I don’t often make owls, but I use it for everything else!!!

The sentiment is from the Oh So Succulent stamp set – I love that font!!!

I took a full sun picture too so you could see it in full light!

It never ceases to amaze me how different cards and colours can look under different photographic situations!

I continue on my quest to improve my photography in 2017!  And I welcome all tips!!!
