Ink Stamp Share July blog hop - Card for Other Celebration (not Birthday!)

Hi everyone,

A busy weekend for me with two blog hops and this time it is the turn of Ink Stamp Share. Our theme for July is "Other Celebration", meaning that our projects need to be focused on any celebration that is NOT a birthday. I hope you have been enjoying hopping around the other blogs - there are some wonderful projects for you to see. You should have hopped from Kirsty Pattrick

For my card today I decided to go with weddings - always a cause for great celebration! In fact, my family should have been celebrating a wedding in a few weeks time as my oldest daughter was due to get married at the beginning of September - sadly it has been postponed due to Covid 19 pandemic.

Anyway, onto my card:

For the colours, I was inspired by the Peony Garden DSP (patterned paper) pack. These are beautiful papers in Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Basic Gray and Whisper White. But instead I used the 6" x 6" Neutrals DSP - and used Smoky Slate. 

The dies are from the Stitched Be Mine set and the heart stamps from the coordinating stamp set - Meant To Be. I love the texture of the white heart - that is the Tasteful texture 3D embossing folder.

The little flowers are from the Build A Wreath die set and are finished off with little pearl jewels. And the sentiment is from a new set which is in the new mini Autumn/Christmas catalogue called Tag Buffet. The stamp is actually a much longer sentiment which I cut apart - hope that doesn't shock too many people!

Thanks so much for joining me today. Do pop back soon to see my video tutorial showing how I made my card. But meanwhile, do keep hopping around the hop. Next up is Sue McDonald.
