To have and to hold


I hope everyone is having a good Monday.

Just a quick post to share a card I made over the weekend with a new set from Gina K's release last Thursday.
The stamp set is called With this Ring. This set just perfect for a wedding, anniversary card or even a card for your significant other.
This card is one I will be sending to my sister for her wedding anniversary.
I stamp the images and sentiment in mementos tuxedo black ink on white layering weight pure luxury paper. I colored the heart wreath with copics and the rings with my sakura glitter pen. The heart wreath I punch out using a marvy scalloped heart punch (the blue one). The to have and hold sentiment was cut with the heart nestibilities.
The pinkish coral paper is velvet paper I picked up at a local craft store. I love the look of it when it is embossed with a cuttlebug folder.
The background was made using the chalk technique, which is very easy to do. I put water in an empty SU plastic stamp storage box then scrapped the chalked over the water. I used a coupler of different shade of pink I Kan'dee chalks from Pebbles Inc. Take a piece cs and lay it on top of the chalk/water, pull it out and lay aside to dry. Th cs I used was layering weight pure luxury paper. I have also used SU's chalk for this technique but like the I Kan'dee because it has shimmer to it.
After the cs was dry I ran it through the cuttlebug using the same heart embossing folder as the velvet paper and glued it on my card base which is black onyx pure luxury paper.
I finished the card with a few black pearl on the hearts and rings.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a great rest of your day!

Fantastic card, Sharri. I just love this set - even though I don't need any wedding cards or have any weddings to attend. I'm just a hopeless romantic! I'm sure your sister will be thrilled to get this from you!

I love your card, Shari. I'm like Lynn, I don't have any weddings to go, too, but this stamp set is beautiful. That CB emboss folder is just the perfect background.
