To The Special Couple


Just the other day I looked back on the cards I made when I first started stamping and cardmaking.  That, was a long time ago.  I used to love CAS cards so much.  Now, I don't make enough of them.  Funny how one's cardmaking style can evolve so much over time. Perhaps it comes easier when the Stamp set speaks to me... like this Paper Smooches set Hubby and Wifey.   For you who know me, I hardly make wedding nor baby cards - but I couldn't resist this wedding themed set, LOVE it!  For the card above, I drew the colour scheme inspiration from the challenge at Paper Smooches SPARKS.


There's a new challenge called Trend Watch (check it out!), and the current challenge inspiration is this fabulous picture...

Since I really wanted to use Hubby and Wifey set, I just followed the inspiration photo pretty loosely, and picked out the soft blue hues of the clouds for my card.  And hopefully, the embossing around the image is a little like the clouds or ray of sunshine that surrounds the image.

Thanks for visiting me.  Seems like I must be up on the mojo for I have endless ideas in my head this weekend for cards ;) so stay tuned...

Have a wonderful day!
Kary

Such a sweet card, Kary! I don't make wedding cards very often either (or baby cards, for that matter!), but I can definitely see why you were drawn to this new PS set. And what a sweet card you made with it, too!! Fabulous work. :)
