Stampin' Up! touches for Andrea's Bridal Shower

I've been a little quiet here on my blog and my social media channels over the last few days but for good reason. Sunday, Emily (my 25 year old daughter) and I hosted a bridal shower for Andrea (my 30 year old daughter). It was a wonderful afternoon celebrating the bride with family and friends and seeing so many people love on Andrea. It was so fun and such a joy to be able to put some personal touches on the day using Stampin' Up! products I love so much. From favors and decorations to even using my Stampin' Peace Studio to host the occasion. Here are some photos of this special day.

IMG_6224 (1)The XOXO treat boxes were add ons to the January Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs & Kisses. I put chocolates inside each one and added a pretty Polished Dots Embellishment to each heart tag and tied with gold trim.

IMG_6224 (1)I used the Heart Punch Pack, white card stock, Create with Friends Stamp Set, Blushing Bride ink, Champagne Foil (retired) and Petal Pink with Gold Ribbon (retired). They were SOOOOO easy to make. Both favors got rave reviews from our guests.

IMG_6362 (1)"Love" was stamped using the Create with Friends Stamp Set.

IMG_6354 (1)

You may recognize this home decor piece I made before Valentine's Day featured in a blog hop. It too was made with the Hugs & Kisses Paper Pumpkin kit. I put it on a shelf in my kitchen to repurpose it for the bridal shower.

IMG_6224 (1)

I used the January Paper Pumpkin Kit Hugs & Kisses to make banners also. I put several of the fun fold card bases together with ribbon to create the many banners I used to decorate my living room and shelves in my Stampin' Peace Studio.


IMG_6224 (1)Do you recognize these? I used our Celebrate Today Magnetic Board Kit to make this collage wall over a sofa in my living room where I showcased Andrea and Jon's engagement pictures. This kit is so versatile. I'll be able to change out the background papers and photos for future family events, special occasions, and holidays. The magnetic board and gold metallic clips will make it easy to do so.


IMG_6224 (1)

I purchased a photo box and wrapped it with Petal Pink Striped Organdy Ribbon. Can you guess what I put inside? Postage Stamps and Thank you notes. Lots and lots of thank you notes I made for the bridal shower and the wedding. This was one of my gifts for the bride.

Stampin' Up! Notes Cards and Envelopes make putting together such a gift easy and inexpensive.

IMG_6237 (1)How many kisses for the Mrs. do you think are in the vase decorated with SU! Blushing Bride Ribbon? Guests used the white hearts with gold trim also from the Hugs & Kisses kit to write their guesses on. And of course, Basic White Thick and Blushing Bride card stock were used to make the sign. There were 221 kisses in the vase. 218 was the winning guess. PS. I kept foil on the top so I wouldn't be tempted to eat any of the chocolates. I love sweets, all sweets, especially chocolates.

IMG_6263 (1)I'm so proud of my girls and am grateful for the love and happiness they bring to my life. I never knew having adult children would be so much fun!

IMG_6265 (2)Andrea and her future sister-in-law and mother-in-law.

IMG_6376 (1)More photos of the happy couple. The cards on their were made with contents from the Celebrate Today Magnet Board Kits.


IMG_6237 (1)
Does anyone recognize this Designer Series Paper? I used Modge Podge to adhere 12" x 12" DSP to 12" square stretched canvases. These were hanging in my living room until I recently moved them to the sitting room off my Stampin' Peace Studio.

IMG_6360 2 (1)

IMG_6237 (1)I have a beautiful antique dining room set that once belonged to my grandmother then my mom. Since moving to my house in Columbus, I only have a small eat in kitchen and no longer have a separate dining room. The set is too big for my kitchen space and I didn't want to have it in storage so have incorporated the hutch and buffet into my Stampin' Peace Studio. They house my china and are used to display cards and other hand made crafts. It was used to serve the buffet lunch for the bridal shower.


IMG_6237 (1)I set up a couple of small table around my work space for salads and drinks. You will recognize my craft space behind the tables if you watch my Facebook Lives. I love that I can use and share my Stampin' Peace Studio in a variety of ways.


IMG_6243 (1)

I have 3 of these shelving units in my studio that I use for display and storage. On this one I hung more banners created with the fun fold card bases from the Hugs & Kisses Kit and displayed a few pictures of Andrea and Jon and a Love collage I made for Valentine's Day last year.

IMG_6241 (1)I had fun seeing Andrea take in the set up and all the personal touches for her bridal shower for the first time. I kept it a secret until she arrived Sunday.
IMG_6244 (1)I ended up buying this set of decorations for a pop of color on this big blank wall.


IMG_6243 (1)Pots of succulents and gift cards served as both center pieces and game prizes.


IMG_6243 (1)This game was a HUGE hit. It was fun hearing stories and memories shared as everyone tried to guess the ages of the bride and groom in the photos. 
IMG_6247 (1)I used the SU! heart punch to punch Blushing Bride hearts to number photos of the bride and Soft Succulent hearts for the groom's photos.
IMG_6247 (1)


IMG_6247 (1)
Another set of DSP canvases to add some color and personality to the back corner of my Stampin' Peace Studio.

 

I realized I forgot to take pictures of the desserts - lemon bars made by Emily, a chocolate brownie strawberry trifle made by me, and heart shaped cookies made by our dear friend Rosie. They were all delicious.

 

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate the opportunity to share with you a glimpse of this special day in my life and the way I was able to incorporate my love of creativity and Stampin' Up! into the celebration. Perhaps, I have inspired some of you to add some of your own creative touches to your special occasions and holidays.

Stampin' Peace Hugs to you all.


Artisan Additions Dies

Today, I want to introduce you to a brand new product - the Artisan Additions Dies. These dies are unique in that they do not match up to any particular stamp set. They are intended to add an extra element of creative and artistic expression to the cards and other paper crafts we make. The Artisan Additions Dies used with our other stamp sets and products open us up to limitless creative possibilities.

I hope you enjoy seeing the various ways I used the Artisan Additions Dies to create some amazing cards in this video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live. 

 

I love that I could create 3 very different cards using the very same layout and same die on each of them.

Welcome to the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. It's always fun to create alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin kit each month, then join in the blog hop to share these projects with all of you.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" cards.

From Christmas Bells to Wedding Bells

I LOVE when I discover ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in unexpected ways. I especially love discovering ways to use my holiday products year round, not just for the holiday season. In this video, you'll see that I use the Christmas Bells in the Gingerbread Dies collection to make stunning cards for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, and bridal showers. This idea was definitely not something I thought of when I purchased the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, but I'm so glad it came to me later.


Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Which is your favorite wedding card, the Basic White or Very Vanilla? Mine is the white one. My daughter Andrea is getting married in June and is wearing white, and the Soft Succulent color of the ribbon on this card is very similar to the color of her bridesmaids' dresses. I think this will be a wonderful wedding or bridal shower card to use for this special event in our family.Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4" on long side

Quick Tip Tuesday - Make a Frame with Dies

For today's Quick Tip Tuesday, I'm demonstrating how to make "frames" to use on your cards, scrapbook pages, and collages. It's super easy and gives even more versatility to your dies when you mix and match them to use in this unique way. Take a look and give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

Here's the card I made using the Pale Papaya frame I made in the video above. I used the largest Scalloped Contour Die with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. It's easy to mix and match dies and the possibilities are endless. Consider making frames of different sizes and widths or even different shapes of dies like circles.
