3 HOC March 2016 word cue challenge - silhouette

I opted to make a wedding card that will be put to good use this summer for a cousin who is getting married.

I started by die cutting the man and wife in my white card front. I added a piece of black behind the images and then added the sentiment next to the die cuts.  I popped the card front up on a white card base and was done!

Stamp-a-faire - Patterns...

Challenge number 2 is the patterns challenge.  We were provided twelve patterns to choose from and make a card.  I chose pattern number 5. 

I used a bit of our mood fabric aka patterned paper and added a strip of cardstock to separate the pattern from the white cardstock.

I die cut the word happy in four colors that I stacked together and made them a bit off center to mimic a little of the ikat pattern.

Stamp-a-faire - Bridal...

Hello!  Today I am joining Papertrey Ink in their fourth annual Stamp-a-faire!  This is my fourth year as well and I look forward to it each and every year!  Things kicked off Friday with a t-shirt challenge which I didn’t do.  But this morning things started at 5 AM my time!  I did not start at 5 AM!!  I got a chance to get started on the first challenge before I had to run and watch my niece play volleyball – way more important!

But I am back now and have completed the first two challenges so I thought I better get these posted before I moved on to challenge number 3.

The theme this year is Project Runway!  Love it!  Love Project Runway!  The first challenge is the bridal challenge.  I have seen many a failed PR bridal dress so I hope that my card does not end up in the bottom three – ha!  The challenge was to use all white with the only color being a neutral for the ink.

I stamped the twig wreath in black to create a focal point and then added the die cut bride and groom.  These were die cut several times and then glued together to add some much needed dimension due to all the white.  I added the sentiment and was done.

Off to the next challenge – patterns!


House of Cards Metallics Challenge...

Hello all!  Welcome to August 1st!  It is time for a new challenge at the House of Cards!  Today’s challenge is a word cue challenge – and that word?  Metallics! 

This one stumped me for a while because I really wasn’t sure what I could use.  I tried making a card with a metallic finish and it looked awful!  Finally it dawned on me to use some of these sweet Simon Says Stamp card kit papers that have gold on them!

So I opted to make a wedding card.  I started off with SU! smokey slate cardstock and cut a sliver off the side so I could add the gold polka dotted paper.  Then I used some of the pretty flower paper and my pierced square die to cut a square so that I could showcase the two gold foil sketchy heart die cuts.  I heat embossed my sentiment in gold and then popped this card front onto another piece of smokey slate.

Wedding Wishes...

A friend of mine asked me in May to make two wedding cards for her.  I agreed and knew I had a couple of months to get them done.  So in June when I was double checking what I needed to do, I discovered that I had missed the first wedding. Yikes!  I felt bad and made sure that I got the card done for the second wedding.

I spotted THIS card on the Sunday Stamps challenge site that Shannon Jaramillo made and I knew that I would have to CASE it.  So this is my version.  I started off with white cardstock that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  Then I stamped the image in versamark and used SU! melon mambo embossing powder.  The stamp is from Awesomely Artistic and I had previously used it on THIS card.

I stamped the sentiment on white, embossed it in melon mambo and used the new SU! washi label punch.  LOVE this punch!!  I backed the card front on melon mambo and adhered it directly to the card base.  The sentiment I popped up a bit.  Simple but elegant.

Then, I decided that I liked Shannon’s version better, so I pulled the sentiment off and silver embossed the dress image (from SU! love and laughter) and then fussy cut it.  I popped the dress up and bent the sentiment a bit to give it a wavy feel and then added it to the card.  I added a few random pearls to the dress and the card front.  Thank you Shannon for such a lovely inspiration and CASE!!

I actually like both versions the more I look at them but the most importantly, I wanted my friend to love the card I gave her to use – and she did!
