Hello Doily: Wedding Invitations

I hope you enjoyed seeing Kylie's wedding Save the Date cards!  We used her initial ideas to design the wedding invitation - love how it turned out!



The 'labels' were printed out first on Naturals Ivory - spaced out to leave room for the Apothecary Accents die to cut each one - then I ran each one through the Big Shot using that die to perfectly cut out each label!  I used a hole punch to make a place for the ribbon to be threaded through, and paper pierced the edges of every label.



All the printing was done in Early Espresso - you can adjust the font color in Word by giving it the correct RGB code for the color you want.  Just search online for "Stampin' Up! RGB codes" and you'll see what I mean!  Perfect font and print color to perfectly match the cardstock!!



Voile!  Awesome invitations suitable for a queen . . . Queen Kylie!


Thank you notes for Kylie . . .


All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Hello Doily: Wedding Save the Dates

Happy Monday, stampers! A whole new week . . . what will you do with your opportunities?  What great possibilities!

This week I want to share with you some wedding creations I made for the lovely Kylie! She found ideas on Pinterest and SplitCoastStampers that she like, and then we tweaked them to fit her colors and ideas.

These are her Save the Dates . . . doesn't this doily look like you could reach out and pick it up off the paper?!



Kylie especially wanted to incorporate a photo into her design, so we did just that!



All CLOcards creations are handmade with care, one by one . . . what a joy to do this for Kylie and Nate!



I like to package the completed order in a pretty way, using the bride's colors - a special package for a VERY special couple for their special day . . .




All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Saturday Morning Videos: Spooky Halloween Banner

Good morning and welcome to Saturday Morning Cartoons Videos!  Need something spooky to spice up your Halloween d├ęcor? Stampin' Up! is here to help you spook the halls. Check out our adorable new Build a Banner Simply Created Kit and the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit! You can design your own like we did in the Holiday catalog or follow the simple instructions to make the one you see here!

Click on the Pic . . .


(Email readers go to my BLOG to see this!)

You'll need the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit which comes with eighteen blank canvas paper pennants, six each of three designs, nine feet of jute twine to assemble the banner, pattern stencils, a full alphabet of stencils and a color spritzer. If you find that you need additional pennants for other projects you have in mind, be sure to check out our refill kit.

The Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit comes with some really fun exclusive Stampin' Up! accessories. There are pre-scored rosettes, some beautiful ribbon -- including Pumpkin Pie seam binding. And I just love the super cute, exclusive, black vintage faceted buttons. 

To get started, I'd like to share with you a couple of tips to help you be successful. 

• First, you may want to put a little bit of adhesive on the back of your stencil so that it's easier to keep it in place. For this particular project, we have chosen to sponge the patterns and letters using a dauber, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit, and Basic Black ink. 

• To make the rosette take the pre-cut and scored strips and fold them back and forth, attach the ends together, and now you can push the center down onto some hot glue to hold it in place. 

• Now all of the other kit accessories can be added, we'll string the banner together with the jute, and add bits of ribbon for the finishing touch.

I love how cute it is and how simple it was to assemble! Have fun making your Halloween even spookier with this simply amazing banner kit! Be sure to contact me to spook the halls this year - and pick up your Banner Kit in my Online Store!

Watercolor Wash Serene Silhouettes


The other night I attended one of my upline's many stamp club classes.  Dawn Olchefske has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to new techniques!  And that night she challenged me to be 'less than perfect' with the technique we were trying.  I trusted her . . . and my card turned out great!

Today I am featuring a technique we learned back a few months - Watercolor Wash.  It's a super easy technique with a whole lot of WOW! 



The Watercolor Wash technique is achieved quite easily using Stampin' Up!'s Aqua Painters and ink from inside the lid of your ink pads!  Then the image is then stamped once the wash dries, using black Stazon ink.


To see a video of this technique, click on Dawn's name below - then try it out today!


All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Serene Silhouettes
Ink:  Black Stazon, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze (retired)
Paper:  Shimmery White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze (retired)
Extras:  Argyle TIEF, Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, Aqua Painters
Inspired by:  Dawn Olchefske
