My dear friend Jenny is getting married the end of this month, and these are the wedding shower invitations that I made for her. There is no stamping at all! The wording was printed on the computer, punched, and that's it! The swirly embossing is from my relatively new Cuttlebug. The most time-consuming part was punching each of the holes around the scalloped edge by hand with a 1/16" punch. Yeah, that was a pain... but I really like how these turned out. And yes, her colors are rose and sage.
I found this paper at Archivers, I think (or may be Michael's?) Who knows. What I DO know is that I absolutely love it, and as you can see I got my money's worth out of it! The water-can gal is from a TAC that was discontinued awhile back. I FINALLY was inspired enough to ink it up. The plain old water can is from another TAC hostess set from last year (or the year before? They all run together!) and it's one of my favorite sets because it can be used for many different occassions. The monkey is from an image swap I was in on SCS. Isn't he adorable? He's from the Stampendous line of Changito stamps, and I love them!
It seems like forever since I've been able to stamp, but what with Mother's Day, a death, and the need for several gifts of boxed card-sets, I've been busy!
This card uses an Easter Set from TAC... but I turned it into a simple Sympathy card. I just embossed in black, and I was happy with the way it turned out.
It may be a little out of focus, but you get the idea.
