Wedding Time Again

As we enter May, wedding season begins again! Our first wedding this year is for my step-sister's cousin this coming weekend, so I needed to whip up a card. I don't think I'm capable of using any other stamp these days for a wedding card. I just love this bella & fella so much!

Emily's challenge this week was to use gold & bling, so I figured it was the perfect challenge for a wedding card. My favorite color combo with gold is vanilla & white. It's so soft & classy looking to me.

I stamped the happy couple on PTI white cardstock with Memento ink and colored with my new copics. The tuxedo is shades of neutral gray, although on my computer screen is just looks black. I also highlighted his lapel, pocket and shoes with black stickles. Then for bella, I only colored in her sash with red for a little pop. Her veil & shoes are covered in icicle stickles and I highlighted all the roses with a clear gelly roll pen from Sakura to make them shine a little. The A Muse twinkle stickers were the perfect finishing touch to her dress.

Stamps: "hitchedabellafella" from Stamping Bella, sentiment from A Muse
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, Brushed Gold, Neenah Cream
Accessories: Kraft taffeta ribbon, Latte Buttons, A Muse micro dot twinkle stickers, Dimensionals

Hi Stefanie! thanks for visiting my blog. I'm pretty sure Emily will be making the wedding turtles into a stamp in the near future! And I notice you're from CT!!!! Woohoo, me too. I was born and raised in Norwich and I haven't moved much farther than that!
