Jennifer McGuire’s Tulle Shaker Card

Standard

IMG_0285

I came across a tulle shaker card that the amazing Jennifer McGuire posted recently. You can find it here. Tulle shaker card tutorial

I love shaker cards. I never considered using tulle before though. I love how it creates a very soft elegant feel. So this is my version of her card. It is for my friends daughter’s wedding. It fits her theme perfectly.

I had trouble keeping my sequins inside the tulle, I think the tear tape I was using wasn’t strong enough. So I hand stiched a circle, using the left over cutout piece from my window as a guide.

I used a Stampendous cling stamp set ‘Bird Blooms’ for my flower and leaves, Tim Holtz distress inks; Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn for the leaves and for the flower Seedlees Preserves and Dusty Concord. My Sentiment was a Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamp ‘Together Forever’ which I stamped using a versacolor ink cube ‘Amethyst’ and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and an unbranded die from my stash to cut out the window. My Sequin’s are from Neat & Tangled ‘Sweetheart Sequin Mix’ and I also added some small silver hearts from my stash.

 

Fairy Tale Princess Invitation

Standard

                                                                                                     Recently I visited the  beautifull Paronella Park in   Innisfail, Queensland.  A perfect venue for a fairytale wedding!   http://www.paronellapark.com.au/

This pocket fold style features  embossing to the  front section, a ‘glass slipper’ tied with  a  silver cord  serves as a belly band. Once opened a beautiful invitation is revealed!  A ‘Tiara’ style  diamante embellishment at the top creates a romantic princess feel  and adds bling!  To the left  a corner style pocket holds the inclusions together nicely.    

This invitation combines both style and elegance creating  a beautiful theme for a fairy tale wedding.   

Alternatively I’ve used an organza ribbon to hold the  pocket fold together which creates a different look to this versatile invitation.

Fairytale invitation # 2

Standard


This is a take 2 on Bec’s Fairytale invitation. I’ve made 2 match book style invitations. The first one I’ve used the Cryogen White for both the cover and the page.  The second invitation I’ve used clear Acetate for the cover and Cryogen White for the page. The beauty of this invitation is that extra pages can be added for extra information and depending on the look the bride is going for the pages could be different lengths or they  could be all the same.  A different colour could be used for the page of the Acetate invitation giving it a different look again. If I wanted to be energetic I could cover the embossed coach with my Zig two-way pen and then cover it with dazzling diamonds, IF I was energetic. lol    Both have been tied together with fine silver cord and have beads knotted at the ends, however thin satin ribbon could be used or organza ribbon tied into a simple bow .  Oh the possibilities!!!!  

 

FairyTale Invitation

Standard

 

Bec wanted something to reflect a fairytale wedding, with softness, sparkle and a touch of purple.  Here I’ve used a Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Happily Ever after/night at the ball set.   The paper I’ve used  is Cryogen White which is an pearlescent, iridescent metallic paper from i paper.  Although hard (click on the photo to get a closer look) to see this paper has thousands of little glittery particles which creates a magical feel to this invitation. The simple organza ribbon adds a soft finishing touch.  The quote I’ve used is one of my favourites using the fonts “Invitation” and “Some Weatz Swashes”.  My friend Sylvia a photographer (www.flickr.com/photos/sylviaaustin1) was kind enough to take this photo as my little camera just didn’t do justice!
