Mr. & Mrs.

Today my friend Julia and I setup our Stampin' Up! table a the Torrington Country Club for the 2014 A Bridal Affair. It was great to see so many excited new brides to be and to ask what they are planning (colors, themes, when is the wedding and are they looking to make their own invitations or party favors, etc.). I enjoy to relive the excitement of planning a wedding.
 
While I was there, I also was asked to talk on the radio with my cousin-in-law, Amy. She could tell that I was hesitant and was nervous but Amy calmed me down by saying, "Leanne, it's me, just talk to me." I did it but my stomach was jumping inside like crazy. But how could I say no to FREE advertising on the local radio? Thank you again Amy for this opportunity! :)
 
Hopefully some of these brides will contact Julia or I to assist with designing, creating and assembling their Save the Dates, Wedding invitations, Bridal Shower invitations, favors, center pieces, banners, thank you cards, scrapbooks and other items they are looking to create. There are endless possibilities of what cardstock, ink and rubber stamps could make.
 
 
Here is one of the many favors I had on my display table. I noticed a lot of people pointing to the mustache and saying, "Look, how cute!"

Glittered flowers

Some new goodies from the Occasions catalog!
 
Do you like glitter and don't want it to get all over you when you open the card? 
 
This is my husband's favorite type of glittered card. He says, "I can hold the card and not be covered in glitter. You need to make more of these kind of glitter cards." What do you think, should I make him a glittery Valentine's Card?
 
 
This technique is using VersaMark and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter. I've taken close up pictures so you can see the glitter on the stamped image.
 
 
This maybe a better photo to see the glitter and not the shine as much.
 
 
Card Recipe:
 
Stamp Set: Peaceful Petals (133104 Wood Mount or 133107 Clear Mount)
 
Cardstock: Calypso Coral (122925), Whisper White (100730) Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (132994)

Ink: Calypso Coral (126983), Daffodil Delight (126944), Garden Green (126973), VersaMark (102283), Jet Black StazOn (101406)
