Wedding Cake

Well, this is what I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.  A wedding cake made of paper.  I saw the idea in the new Feb/Mar 2011 Cricut Magazine.  I thought it would be perfect as a centerpiece for my sister-in-law’s Bridal Shower this past weekend.  It was a lot of fun to make!  I tweaked a few things from the one in the magazine. 

Materials:

1. Paper mache boxes from Joann’s (8″, 9″, 10″)

2. 24″ textured paper pad from DCWV

3. Open stock “I love you” paper from Joann’s

4. White card stock from Stampin Up

5. Martha Stewart sugar glitter

6. Cricut expression

7. Plantin Schoolbook (scallop circle and border) and Heritage cartridges (flower flourish)

8. Gypsy (not necessary, but makes things easier)

9. Glue pen for glitter and adhering to “cake”

10. Flowers and pearl picks from Michael’s

11. Ribbon from Joann’s

Bridal Shower Mini Album

This is the most ambitious project I have done (although stayed tuned for a future entry).  My sister-in-law is getting married (you may remember I recently posted the invitations I made for her) and I decided to make an album of her bridal shower for her.  I am not a scrapbooker.  Cards are what I spend most of my time working on.  That being said – I really had fun putting this together!  It took a long time but I want to make another one.

Materials:

1)Shaped chipboard album (can’t remember who it’s by)

2)Cricut

3)Gypsy Font, Lyrical letters, Home decor, Plantin Schoolbook and Sweet Treats cartridges

4)Stampin’ UP Stamps, punches, inks, paper and pearls

5)K & Co Best of Barbara Walton paper, Bazzil Bling paper, My Minds Eye Lost and Found Collection, Making Memories Je t’adore collection, open stock paper, Bo Bunny Double Dot

I thought this paper was perfect for listing the attendees of the shower and maybe the gift they gave:

Wedding Invitations

Wow! I know I haven’t posted in a looonngg time.  First, it was out of town for Thanksgiving.  Then it was 24 people over for Christmas.  Next, time off from work, kids home from school and New Years.  Finally, back to work with a new boss and a ton of stuff that tells me some people don’t know how to leave work behind!  🙂 

Anyway, I haven’t been totally neglectful of my craft time.  My sister-in-law got engaged and asked me to do her wedding invitations!  What an honor!  There was, however, a short turn around time – she is getting married in March.  That is what I am posting for you today. 

The invite part of the invitation consists of 3 layers.  The back layer  (4.25″ x 6.25″) was run through the cuttlebug using a flower embossing folder.  The middle layer was vellum cut at the same size.  The ink was still wet on the vellum after running it through the printer so I used clear embossing powder to give the words a little dimension.  The final layer was made using a border punch.  Then I punched two holes using my Stampin Up punch and put the ribbon through.

The reception card was the easiest to do.  I was able to get 6 on an 8.5″ x 11″ paper.  Then I used Waltzing Mouse Frame it square stamp to give a border.  Finally, I cut them into squares.  Easy Peasy!

The reception card was a bit harder.  I bought the cards with envelopes so I had to make sure the printing was where I wanted it to be.  Then I stamped it with the Waltzing Mouse Frame It rectangle stamp.

The final touch was to stamp each of the envelpoes (RSVP, Invite, and Mailer) with a Stampin Up flower stamp (Teeny Tiny Wishes) that coordinated with the flowers on the embossing folder.

See you soon!

Wedding Card

Stamping 411 has a sketch challenge this week.

I used the wedding cake and garland from Stampin Up’s Blissful Bride stamp set.  As well as, the Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels #14 set that corresponds with the Spellbinders die cut set. 

First, I stamped the cake in Rich Razzleberry and colored the flowers with Copics.  Then, using the Spellbinders Labels #14, I cut out the cake and also cut out a solid colored piece in a larger size.  Next, using the Versamark champagne stamp pad, I inked the entire cake cut out and covered it in sparkle embossing powder (it’s hard to see in the photos, but very sparkly in person).  After that, using the Waltzing Mouse scroll border, I stamped over the embossing powder.  It gave a really interesting effect.  Finally, I adhered the cake cut out to the solid, larger cut out.

For the card, I cut an 8.5×11 piece of white card stock in half lengthwise, giving me a 4.25×5.5 card.  Next, I stamped the garland in Rich Razzleberry, four times on the card.  Since the garland doesn’t run the full length of the page, I had a slight overlap in the middle.  But since the shaped label was going to cover it, it was ok if they didn’t match perfectly. 🙂  Using my EK scallop border punch, I punched the bottom edge of the card.

Using dimentionals, I popped up the label a bit on the center of the card.  I attached the ribbon to the card before adhering the label, but tied it once the label was on.   The final touch was to color my gemstones with a Copic marker that was close in color to Rich Razzleberry.

I hope you like it.  It’s my first time entering the Stamp 411 challenge. 

I appreciate all your comments and feedback!
