Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #3

Hi Stamping Friends!

It's already our third week at the STAMPIN CELEBRATION Inspiration Challenge blog.  And this week we have a beautiful wedding ensemble that Candace picked out.  We hope you an play along with us!  I love the purples and yellows in these pictures.


I chose to use the sketch challenge from the Clean and Simple blog.  This is FTL90.  You know me!  I had to go with a literal interpratation of the inspiration challenge and the sketch.  It was really difficult to position all those flowers so the didn't look like they were all lined up in a row.  That little swirly effect is hard to acheive.  This card isn't all that clean and simple.  Leave it to me to turn a CAS card into messy and complicated!  I also made this...

I think a wrapped candle like this would make a lovely wedding favor.  Maybe add a tag with the couples monogram on it.  Or maybe a little Thank You sentiment.  The color is a little off in the card pic, but I used Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron for both projects.  The EE cardstock is embossed with the Finial Press Textured Impressions Folder.  The SS flowers are made by using the Floral Fusion Sizzlet.  The ribbon is Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  I really like the look of this ribbon and it is very easy to tie.  I wish it came in more colors.  I sponged the edges of all the flowers with So Saffron ink.  It's amazing how much more depth a little sponging will do.  I should use this technique more often.

If you want to see more Stampin' Celebration Inspiration goodness, check out the other Design Team members.  They really amaze me every week with their fabulous projects.

I have my Stampin' Up! club ladies coming over tommorow night, so I'll try and post the projects we made.  I haven't had a ton of stamping time this week, and I won't this weekend either.  Our oldest DS is graduating from 8th grade and we are giving him a little celebration party.  Now I just need to come up with some creative centerpieces.  Any ideas?  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
