SIP Challenge 41 – Weddings!

And we successfully made it through another Monday! It was rainy here in the early part of the day but the sun did manage to come out for a little bit and then later on it got really windy! Such odd weather! I had another pretty low key day. I ran and picked up Brian in the morning from dropping off his car at Jeep, we went back to his house for a bagel and then I came home. Some crafty time with Andrea via FaceTime passed away a good part of the afternoon and Taylor came by to binge watch Netflix with her eyes closed for while! LOL! Brian called and asked if I wouldΒ run him back over to get the truck so I did. Some dinner with parents and then a little TV to finish off the day. Oh, I did manage to get into a bit of a cleaning frenzy in the Stampin’ Galley! It looks a lot better! I always find “new” things too! Do you do that? LOL!

Today I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog with the rest of the talented Team for this week’s challenge…

SIP Challenge 41 Weddings 800

Ahh, I don’t know why I like a wedding card as much as I do! Remember last year when I went through my wedding card marathon?! Today I stared my card with a base of Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb that I stamped in Versa-Mark with the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background Stamp and heat embossed some Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My flowers and leaves are from the Clearly Besotted Sketched Blooms and they are heat embossed with the same Silver Pearl on Vellum and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I used a little Multi-Matte Medium strategically placed behind them to adhere them to the card. For the greeting I used the Simon Says Stamp On Edge Love You Die cut from a piece of Solar White 110lb and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I resisted the temptation to add some sequins, it wasn’t easy! LOL! I do love that the card is basically white, I think that it has a nice simple elegant lookΒ to it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Get a head start on your wedding cards and share them with us in the gallery by stopping by the BLOG! Thank you so much for coming by! Have a tantalizing Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Justin:

    You don’t need to resist adding sequins…………you’re allowed to do that whenever the urge strikes! Today’s card lovely in it’s simplicity. I’m glad you didn’t go overboard with it. Sometimes less is better and this card backs that up. Just beautiful and a card any new bride or groom would love to receive. Not only a bride or groom but also anyone period. We all like to be told we are loved. You did a terrific job.

    Cold and windy here today and me and the hubs will spend the day running errands. I keep telling him “at least it’s not snowing”. Running to 4 or 5 different stores doesn’t seem to be his favorite thing to do. LOL You have yourself a Terrific Tuesday my friend. Love and hugs, XO πŸ™‚

    1. Hello there Grace!
      LOL! Yes, I do every once in a while! Glad that you like the card! Yes, we all do like when we are told that we are loved, and we should be all told that more often!
      We have some wicked wind here today! But it’s sunny so that’s ok! Yes, at least it’s not snowing! I like running errands! LOL! Hope that you have a terrific day too! Love and hugs! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, this is so beautiful! I love the silver embossing powder and the background. The way the flowers peek above the mat is so intriguing. Lots of great ideas here, no sequins needed! Happy Tuesday! Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Thank you so much Nancy! I do like the monochromatic look of the card! Nope, no sequins needed! Hope that you had a great day! Hugs to you! πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful card, Justin. I love monochromatic color scheme and the on edge sentiment. It continues to be windy here today and not as warm as it looks. Have a great day.

    1. Thank you HJ!It was pretty windy here all day too! Soon it will be warm, fingers crossed! Hope your Tuesday was fun! πŸ™‚

  4. Yay! Beautiful! My daughter is getting married April 23 and I made a box card for them. I also sell cards so I’ve made a bunch of wedding cards to sell in a little shop in my town, just in case anyone wants to get her one (we live in a *small* town). Love the white on white–I’ve done most of my cards like that too. The embossing on your card is lovely!

    1. Thank you Sharon! That’s a very nice wedding gift idea! I love that you get to sell your cards in town! So happy that you like the card! πŸ™‚

  5. Just stunning, Justin! Fantastic monochromatic card with the slight shimmer from the EP. The background stamp you chose is so perfect for a wedding card (and yet another one I have to add to my wish list!). πŸ™‚ I have to make a wedding card for a colleague that will be getting married this summer so I will have to play along with this challenge (and have a card ready to go months in advance!).

    1. Thank you very much Christy! I do love that background stamp too! It’s works for so many different occasions! Yay! Can’t wait to see what you make! Glad that we could be your reason to be ahead! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Linda! It’s a fun layout that would work for lots of different things for sure! πŸ™‚
