Love is in the Air

Weddings are the feature today at Practical Scrappers. I chose to stamp a flower border on transparency and heat emboss it using gold powder. I punched some simple butterflies on glossy white cardstock and used mini pearls to embellish the body. The card is striking because the colors are limited and the design clean. To create an elegant wedding card, use a color simple palette such as white, black, & gold and add minimal embellishments. I just wish I knew someone who was getting married or celebrating an anniversary so I could send this card to them. Don’t forget to stop by Practical Scrappers and see all things WEDDING.

The Wonder of Washi Tape

Oh, the wonders of washi tape! It is such a versatile product. I created a shaker embellishment by enclosing confetti between acetate and cardstock and sealing it with washi tape. First, I created my ocean scene with pearlescent watercolors and some torn scraps of mulberry paper for sand. After I closed 3 sides with washi, I added the confetti which contained sand, glitter, sequins, sea shell foam shapes, pearls, & seed beads. My beach themed shaker wasn’t complete without a string of bunting flags and some mini flip flops. I just couldn’t resist adding them. Stop by Practical Scrappers to find the most inspiring & clever ways to use this decorative adhesive.

Scalloped Edges

I really do love scalloped edges. This is one trend that has become a standard technique for many of my projects. Once you try them, I must warn will be addicted. Do check out the Design Team at Practical Scrappers to see all the fantastic ideas they shared for using scalloped edges.
