Love & Laughter …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend, or had a great time if you were out and about!  I stayed in my stampin’ room and created some neat projects to share this week.

Yesterday… I said I would be featuring the “I AM ME” designer series paper all this week, so, today is day number one.

As I looked at each pattern, I began to come up with some ideas of what I wanted to do, based on the stamp sets I have.  The paper pattern I used today has simple scallops of white on pool party.  With that …

I chose the “Love and Laughter” stamp set (If you click on the title, you can view the stamp set).  Another set that I had to have, but did not get the chance until now.  I think we all do that, and I hope that I can inspire you to break out those stamp sets you have not used yet.

This stamp set is so dainty and beautiful, that I decided to use the “Shimmery White” paper … It has a beautiful shimmer to it, without over powering your images.

Next, I embossed the lower part of the cardstock with the “Delicate Designs” embossing folder.  I thought it added a beautiful touch of texture, and just felt that it belonged on the card.

The Delicate Designs folder comes in a set of 2 … the lace border I used and snowflakes (at least that what I thought they were) and the coordinate with the Large Scallop Edgelits Die on page 188.

I wanted to add a ribbon but it seemed a bit heavy, so I pulled out my “Pool Party Bakers Twine” … just enough to add a pop of color and to draw attention to the embossing.  My apologies … the “Pool Party” is discontinued.

To complete the card, I wanted to add a little “bling” and immediately thought of the gorgeous “Frosted Finishes” Embellishments!  Who said you had to use them just for Christmas cards!  I love it on this card.

Hmmm… we may need a bit more postage for this card, but well worth it!  The bride is going to love it, and I’m sure you’ll impress many in the room.
