Color variation on a wedding card

A quick post tonight to show you another colorway with a card I showed back on October 2 - this one with Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Brushed Silver and White. A texturz plate, used with the Big Shot, gives a great fondant-like texture to the cake, and Basic Jewels - Pearls make beautiful decorations! I have to confess, the ribbon is 3/8" grosgain in retired Eggplant, but I just had to use it. All us Stampin' Up! demonstrators have a stash of those fave retired items, right?

This card was for my sister and her new husband. It was a lovely ceremony in mid-October. For some photos, check out the sample album on the photographer's Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping!

Gently Falling Trees

There's a beautiful stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog called Gently Falling (check it out to the right). It's a Two-Step Stampin' set, which means it has a background shape and an outline that work together to create dimensional images. Well, one of the images looks like a tree if you only do the first step! How quick and easy, and technically, half the work!

In the photo above, I used it to make evergreen-type trees in the fall color combo of More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive.

In this photo, I used Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler for a traditional Christmas card design. Clean and simple - my favorite kind. The beautiful ribbon is also new in the holiday mini catalog - it's quilted satin ribbon in Cherry Cobbler!

Thanks for reading! Have a great November!
