Rustic Elegance Wedding Card #TGIFC116 Sketch Challenge

Better Together TFIFC116

Hey everyone!  It’s time for another sketch challenge at TGIF Challenges.  You can check out what the other designers created using the sketch below by visiting the challenge blog.  I’d also like to invite you to play along with us and upload your creations.  We love to see how you interpret the sketches.

This is going to be a busy year for us with weddings and babies.  Tomorrow, we will be attending the wedding of the daughter of my husband’s good friend from high school.  I’m quite certain that we are not old enough to have friends with children that are old enough to get married.  Yep!  I’m definitely getting old!

Better Together Wedding Card

Since we will be giving them a gift card, I wanted to create a beautiful wedding card for the newlyweds.  The background is from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and lends a bit of a rustic feel to an otherwise elegant card.  I added a few Gold embossed banners using the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The greeting is from the Better Together stamp set.  It was stamped in versamark, heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then die cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits.  To complete the gold ensemble, I added a scallop layer of Gold Foil cardstock and a wrap of the mini gold sequin trim.

 Crafting Forever

I had a lot of fun with this week’s sketch from CAS(E) this sketch and the new Crafting Forever stamp set.

I started by adding a 1″ x 5-1/2″ strip of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper directly to the left side of my Whisper White card base.  The top layer of Whisper White card stock measures 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and is popped up with dimensionals.

 

On the top layer, I directly stamped the Playful Backgrounds stamp in Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay.  I placed small post-it notes over the smaller areas, inked up with Crushed Curry first.  Then, I removed the notes and added the Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo ink.  The greeting was stamped in Basic Black archival ink and is from the Crafting Forever stamp set.

Crafting Forever

 

The scissors, twine, and stamp images were stamped on a combination of Whisper White card stock and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to add color and highlights to the images.  Sadly, there aren’t any framelits for this set, so I had to fussy cut each piece.  As a final touch, I added a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots.

Woodgrain Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you, like it did on me?  I think Father’s Day is going to do the same thing!  As I was creating my project for tonight’s blog hop, I decided to use the sketch below as my inspiration and feature the Nailed It stamp set.  Nailed It will be retiring at the end of this month and is still (as of this writing) available.  However, many of the other items on my Father’s Day card for tonight have already sold out.  I’ll still share it at the end of this post, but I wanted to create something that would get you excited about the upcoming new catalog!

As you may know from my previous post, I am very fond of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I love all of the greetings and the 2-stamp flowers are adorable.  Using the sketch, I paired the stamp set with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to give the card a rustic feel.  I really like how it turned out, don’t you?

 

I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut it with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Next, I created a frame from Lemon Lime Twist card stock by die-cutting the same circle and an outer circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The flowers were stamped in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, and Crushed Curry inks.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a coordinating set of framelits for these flowers, so I had to fussy cut them.  It may look complicated, but it only took a few minutes.

 

I finished off the card by adding some Glitter Enamel Dots.  This product has been SO VERY POPULAR with demonstrators during the preorder.  I know you’ll want them, but there may be a slight delay for them to be back in stock.  Don’t worry!  I’ll keep you posted.  I definitely want more for myself, too.

Nailed It
You can get the Nailed It Stamp set for 25% Off through May 31st or while supplies last. Click the image for details.

So, now that you’ve seen the masculine version of the sketch, which one do you prefer?  Leave me a comment below to let me know your pick.
