Always - For Joyce in Manitoba

Good evening stampers!
Hope you are all keeping dry during this very interesting duck weather we are currently experiencing.  It gives us creative individuals the perfect excuse to stay dry indoors and have some creative fun.

My friend Joyce is in Manitoba and celebrated her son's wedding today, and I wanted to share a wedding style card with you for that reason.  I CASED the idea of this card from the Splitcoast Stampers site here.  Thank you Doodledop! And thank you, Susan, for having this stamp set in your collection!

Both hearts were stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. On the the "female" heart I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter and three small pearls!  On the "male" heart I added a bit of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Early Expresso!

Happy joyful stampin' hugs to you all!
Bruni :)

Masterboard Fun

Hello Stampers!

This past weekend I continued playing with the Greenhouse Garden stamp set. I really do love this set!  I varied the color pallette and created a masterboard (completely covered a sheet of cardstock) - and then cut it up and created my card.

Here is my completed masterboard.
This was fun!

And here is....
... my completed card!
I applied Dazzling Diamonds with 2-way glue to the centres of the flowers and
also the centres of the embossed background along
the right hand side.

Enjoy your week, everyone.
Joyful smiles and hugs

Tuija's Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Tuija!
I was inspired to create this birthday card from Barb's make-n-take last month (see earlier post).  Do any of you recognize some of the features? I really love the two-step stamping technique which was incorporated into the design panel.

Enjoy your day, Tuija!

Joyful stampin hugs to you all.
