#258 Wedding

Jackie is hosting today's challenge, Wedding.

Who knew when I decided what challenge was going to be on what week back last year that in June 2020 there would be no weddings because most of the world would be locked down! It's surreal the situation we find ourselves in. My heart goes out to all those young couples who have been planning their wedding, sometimes for years, only to have to cancel it, or change the plans drastically. Hopefully one day soon we will be back to some form of normality.


As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, home decor, or Invites, Save the Dates etc. as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Jackie

My card was made for a friend whose daughter was getting married. She wanted me to use the wedding colour scheme and a picture of the bouquet "in there somewhere!"

Josephine

I made a background with Brushos, then added a layer of tracing paper heat embossed in silver. The flowers were made using dies from the Susan's Garden range, tinted with Pan Pastel and the sentiment was computer-generated (and the watermark placed to hide the recipients' names!)

Glenda




A tri shutter wedding card!

Judy

I used a digital image by Time 4 Tea Designs. I coloured the card with Copics, pencil crayons and a Wink of Stella. For the background I used a Stampers Companion Embossing folder. To complete the card I added ribbon and wedding flowers.

Mary

I used a digi from Beccy Muir and coloured it using Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Sparkles adding Liquid Pearls to the flower centres. I used a die from Tattered Lace's Floating in the air circle surprise set to cut the mat for the digi and finished the card with some gold gems.

Angela

I made this with one of my own Masterboards and a stamp set by 'Stamps by Me' and finished it with Stickles Glitter Glue and a die cut sentiment. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Margaret

My card is very simple. Used watercolour paper as the substrate and then added a strip of lace, wrapped some gold twine around the card and created a flower cluster on top. The sentiment was computer generated and it was done! Have a great day and enjoy your crafting! xx

Marlene

I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp called The Big Day coloured with Promarkers added some Flowers and a double ribbon bow

Agnieszka chanya13

I made a simple, romantic, wedding card with lots of flower.

Kimx

I used a Crafters Companion Classic Rose Decoupage pad and co-ordinating die to make my wedding card, along with an Altenew background stamp and platinum embossing powder.

Dr Monika

I made a mixed media tag using gorgeous flowers and chipboard from Little Birdie, added Finnabair patina paste using CrafTreat stencil. The used pattern paper is from KaiserCraft. I have used some IOD clay elements to decorate the tag. Done some random stamping on the background with Mudra Stamps. Hope you like it. Stay safe and healthy, my lovely friends. Lot of love..

Lin

My wedding card was created with a Tiddly Inks image and Crafters companion papers. Please see my blog for details

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Dr. Monika

Hello lovelies, I have made this cute tiny album using a single sheet of 12x12 pattern paper from Little Birdie Crafts. Added splatters using Little Birdie Crafts alcohol ink sprays. I have used Tubby Craft ink pads and Mudra stamps for random stamping. In this mini album lot of butterflies fluttering around. To explore more, please read my blog. Stay safe and Stay healthy, my sweet friends.

Josephine

I used a Woodware stamp, Promarkers, Distress Ink and some dies from Spellbinders to create this card.

Jackie

I made a thinking of you card on behalf of a group when a member passed away. I used a hunkydory pad as the base and added additional butterflies.

Instead of a card this month I decided to make a mixed media butterfly canvas using Tim Holtz tissue paper, butterfly napkin, encaustic wax and Panpastels.

Mary

I have used Brush Markers to colour a design from Hunkydory's Watercolour colouring pad and made an S-shaped card.

Maike

I have used a stencil by Create a Smile Stamps and created the ombre background for the butterflies which I have die cut from holographic paper, which really has a brilliant shine to it when the light catches it! Happy crafting, everyone ;o)

Marlene

I have made an Easel Card with a Decorative Rectangle Die the Butterfly Dies are from The Works and coloured with Copics and added some Flowers

Margaret

I created a simple mixed media card. I have included book pages, washi tape, Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals, Gesso and Texture Paste as well as stamping, a small chipboard trellis piece and prills. My butterfly is a free printable. Enjoy your crafting and have a great day!!

Lin

My butterfly and the background patterned paper are from Crafters Companion. Details on my blog

A 60th Birthday is definitely something to celebrate.

Josephine

I used a Crafter's Companion cut and emboss folder, a die-cut butterfly and a pre-printed sentiment to make a card for my son's partner to celebrate her birthday.

I used a die-cut for the black swirls and the sentiment is from an old paper pack. The tag came from my stash and was hand stamped using Stampin' Ups 'Amazing You' and ' Express Yourself' stamp sets.
