Holy Wedding cards Batman!

I shouldn't be left to wander aimlessly through Hobby Lobby. For some reason I strolled down the bridal aisle and found the groom and bride tiles. Right next to them were bling hearts and look at this - they were 50% off! And here I had just ordered the bride paper off of the Clearance rack from Stampin' Up. PERFECT. That spawned card number one using sentiments that I printed out on my computer. I believe Stampin' Up had a stamp set with the husband, wife, happy life saying previously so that is not an original idea. So I made 8 of those cards - don't ask me why.

Then I was in Hobby Lobby to buy some paper to make envelopes for these 7 3/4" X 5 1/2" large cards and stumbled upon the kraft colored background paper that is wedding themed. I also discovered an entire stack of pearl foil paper by S.E.I. - much like the bride paper from Stampin' Up. Alas the tiles are black, white and pink so that won't match a kraft colored card. Let's go back to the bridal area and lo-and-behold I find a pack of silver rings for a different trinket to put on a card. Instead of bling let's just punch a little heart and if it isn't shiny enough we can always apply Crystal Effects or some glitter/Stickles. And the gorgeous foil paper? Well that can be sponged/daubered to whatever color you want. For the last card I used Elegant Eggplant and Mellow Moss because my friend Karen has a wedding she is going to next weekend and those are the wedding colors. She doesn't know I made it, but I'll let you know if she likes it.

I am off to trick-or-treat instead of hiding in my basement and stamping - DARN! Darth Vader (Xavier) and Batman/singer/jedi guy (Isandro - don't ask) are waiting. Have a fantastic Halloween. - Heidi
