Hello!
I’ve been thinking about using this ‘Happy Wedding’ stamp set from Lawn Fawn for a while now. And when a friend called and asked for a ‘congratulations on your wedding’ card, I went straight to it.

The theme colour I went for was the pastels. I started with stamping the cake, the sentiment and the birds using My Favorite Things hybrid ink dye in Black Licorice. Then, I stamped the dotted heart string inside the top folded card base.

For the colouring I used my favourite – the inktense pencils from Derwent. They are high quality, so easy to use and I really love their colours! And as I wanted to have a light colouring, specific to a wedding theme, I used the waterbrush, which is one of my favourite tools, too.

 

To add a bit of dimension, I went and added a blue and golden string that I tied in a bow between the cake and the sentiment.

Many thanks for stopping by and wishing you a great day,
Talida

A Wedding Invitation

Hello, one and all! With the wedding season in full bloom and action, I’d like to finally show you the invitations I made for two great friends: Gina & Cornel. Their wedding was a couple of years ago and they’ve been leaving their happily ever after since.
Now, it took me quite a while to assemble this post together as it’s been quite a challenge to decide which ones of all the great photos Cristi took will make it to the post. I have to admit he did a great job as always! The ones I show you here are with the small or big components of the wedding invitations arranged by Cristi himself.

A Wedding Gift

Good morning, everyone! Wedding gift ideas are always welcome and we love to get some inspiration in creating more. Or many, why not?

This was the first cardboard box I have ever decorated and has been an idea that stuck with me later on when I made the desk calendars. It’s a lot of work but well deserved when you look at the result.

Wedding. Soft colours.

As the wedding season is in full bloom, I think some inspiration would be more than welcome.

Reviewing the posts, the pending drafts that await to be posted for a while, I went on finishing and scheduling some of them. For some people this job seems to be easy and believe it’s done in a few minutes. Actually it takes quite some time to make sure that the draft you came up with is the one you want. That the pictures are the right ones and that are watermarked, properly sized and uploaded and so on. I guess that one of the reasons I love doing this is the fact that it takes time and there’s no pressure. 😉

Now, back to the wedding topic. I posted here some of the wedding invitation samples I made a while ago. As I am creating some new ones and planning to add some wedding favor ideas too, I want to upload all the previous ones I have made so far.

For these ones I went with softer colours like buttercup, lilac and soft green. There are different techniques I used for each one. Read more

“I do.” Collection. The Beginnings

This is the first article about the collection of wedding cards and gifts. It started with lots of ideas and thrill as one of my friends was planning her marriage. We exchanged some ideas, we set the colour range and off I went putting them all to good work.

I made more than one sample. I wanted her and her husband to be to have a good wide range where to choose from.

In a future post, I will show you the one they chose, the colour range and the gift I gave them on their wedding day (all in matching colours).
