{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Memories and More}

What an honour! I was asked by Sarah Levin to be guest designer and take part in this fab blog hop.

Thank you for coming over to have a look at what I've created with the Petal Garden Memorie and More pack.  This little pack has lots of lovely prints and motifs that can easily be used for card making.  I cut out the roses and arranged them on a background of torn cards.
The card base is in Powder Pink measures 14.5cm x 14.5cm.

Here is a sped up video with some music.

The second project I was asked to make was a 3D one, I decided to make these tiny little boxes as I wanted to show off the little extra pieces you get in the kit.

Here is a video with the instructions

{It's a Stampin' Up! Wedding!}

A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of going to a friend's wedding.
She had approached me a number of months ago to ask for help designing her wedding invitations, which we did together by having a play with some stamps, ink and card.  After enjoying the process so much she decided to make the decorations and all the bouquets and buttonholes! 

The colour scheme had already been decided, a lovely turquoise, which matched Stampin' Up!s Tempting Turquoise, and with my suggestion we added Lemon Lime Twist to the mix.
Butterflies was also a bit of a theme, so all the fabulous dies came into use along with retired dies and punches that I can't bear to part with.

Over the following months there were sessions cutting and making flowers at my kitchen table as well as an army of bridesmaids at the brides house who rolled and assembled.

Here is the bride's bouquet at the beginning of the assembling process.
We used a ready formed handle with oasis dome, which we hot glued the flowers to.

The happy couple!

Close up.

These were the butterfly wands for the flower girls, made with a retired die and some current Stampin' Up! ribbon and sequin trim.

These fab table numbers were decorated to co-ordinate with the rest of the scheme and...

these concertina medallions were stamped before folding and decorating to create an impressive centre piece on the tables.

The whole room looked amazing with all the coordinating decorations.

Even the post box had a touch of Stampin' Up! magic!

So as I had to make a card, an knew the colour scheme, I broke out some non SU paper (ssshhhh) and some pretty paper flowers in my stash, along with lots of diecuts - Stampin' Up! of course, and the Glitter Enamel Dots, to make this...

Here is a sped up video of the process.

Some of the items I used is on the retirement list , 
so if you like them get them before stocks run out.
