Because I care~

This set can be found in the first level Hostess sets in the current SU Catalogue. It came as a thank you gift if the demos preordered a colour bundle during the colour renovation. Yay for me!!

I stamped it onto so saffron cardstock and coloured it in using my prisma pencils...and  then added more colour using the gamsol technique. It gave it the dimension I wanted.    The embossing folder is also from it. I made this a few months ago for a sketch and colour challenge from SCS.  Thanks for looking!

Dusty Kiwi Invitations~

The invitation/response cards

The beautiful bride made these using the SU's Medallion Background stamp and Friends24-7 stamp set...The fonts on the invitation are courtesy of SU! The fun began in January as we looked through the catalogue and idea book...We matched the SU colours closest to her choice of wedding colours from SU's palette of in-colours - Dusty Durango and Kiwi Kiss. We then quickly moved on with the design. What fun and laughter as we looked at possibilities~ the memories are priceless!

253 flowers later~

The roses were made by rolling paper on a quilling tool, you can easily make one using a pencil or stylus. Apply some glue to the back and allow to dry. I thought the flowers needed some sparkle so I took some of SU's crystal effects and ran it around the petals, then I dipped each flower into diamond dust. The wow effect was enough to make me go back and apply that to every rose...the bride thought I had lost my mind. I promised her I didn't but that the flowers would look lovely glittering on the curly willow.

A year of Dusty Durango ~

I have not been blogging for some time, let me know if you are still with me...I have wanted to post these for some time. My daughter got married in July and some of the eye candy is what you see on the left.

We made around 94 of these silver lotus flowers that we used as part of our centrepieces at the reception. I cannot take credit for the idea but found this on the SU! demo forum as I was looking through the latest and greatest creations. You can imagine my excitement when I realized how easy they were to make and how nice they would look on our tables. You can find the directions here

Another great find was from an online tutorial making paper roses...unfortunately the link is no longer available. The original design used felt to make their flowers. So elegant.
