Today I have a wedding card featuring Mama Elephant “Tandem ride” and “Tandem extras” stamps. These were perfect for a couple of friends tha got married some weeks ago, since they usually ride a tandem bike when they’re on holidays.
First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. By the way, the top hat is the flower pot from “Tandem extras” stamp set. I colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut the images. Then, I die cut the mountains using Lawn Fawn “Stitched mountain borders” dies and inked them with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. For the hills, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies and blended Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress inks. I also blended Dried Marigold Distress ink in the background for the sky. I spritzed some water and dried everything with a paper towel after few seconds for a distress effect.
I adhered everything together and then, as I wanted to be clear this is a wedding card, I added some accessories to the couple. I stamped three flowers using a stamp from Lawn Fawn “Just for you” stamp set with Picked Raspberries Distress ink, and the bow tie from Lawn Fawn “Beep boop birthday” stamp set with black ink, and for the veil I used a piece of white tissue paper.
Last, I glued the front panel to a kraft card base, added the frame die cut using Mama Elephant “Madison Avenue” dies, and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink on the inside of the card.
I think these Mama Elephant stamps are perfect for almost every occasion. In particular, I think they are fantastic for a wedding card like this.
I hope you like this card. Have a nice day!
Today I’m sharing a wedding card I made using Altenew “Peony bouquet” stamp set. These flowers are just gorgeous, aren’t they? I think they are perfect for elegant wedding cards.
First, I stamped the flowers and the sentiment (from Mama Elephant “Whale wishes” stamp set) on Arches watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using gold embossing powder. I did some masking to have some leaves and flowers behind the big flower. I wanted to color the flowers in some way to get a pearly effect, so I smushed Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks on a laminated paper and mixed the inks with Perfect Pearls. Then I colored everything using these homemade pearlescent watercolors. I love the shiny look, it’s so beautiful!
Then, I added Antique Linen Distress ink around the flowers to give some depth. Finally, I adhered the front panel to a blue card base using double sided tape. As you can see, I made a coordinating envelope stamping the big flower and heat embossing it with gold embossing powder.
I’m entering this card into Altenew April 2017 Inspiration Challenge
