Bride and Groom

I was BEYOND excited when I get our new stamps in the other day.  I have been anxiously awaiting our new pretties and I was NOT disappointed!  I was really worried with a few of our stamps since they are really delicate where the swirls are concerned, but I really didn't need to be.  Our stamp manufacturers are AMAZING!

My box of goodies!
See the swirls on the wedding dress and at the bottom of the tux?  I was REALLY worried that they wouldn't turn out very well so as soon as I ripped my box open I HAD to zippy quick try them out.  I have been DYING to see what they would look like if I embossed them on a dark background, so I grabbed a piece of scrap paper, my Versa Mark and silver embossing powder and went to work.

Look at how gorgeous they turned out!  This was just a zippy quick slap it on some paper and go...and did I mention I left the lid of the Versa Mark off ALL NIGHT LONG!?!   (It totally worked the next morning too!)

I did all of this on Wednesday and I haven't had a chance to "play" until this evening.  I need to do some card swaps up for our Retreat so I thought I would see if I could come up with a nifty card to share with the ladies.

I wanted to use both the bride and the groom stamp, but it didn't work out that way.  Which was perfectly fine, because she is stunning just as a stand alone!

How beautiful is she?!  I am not sure if you can see ALL the detail, I am horrible at taking pictures and this was taken using my phone!  (GASP!)

I embossed the black background paper to give it a bit more texture and placed her on some silver glitter paper, which totally makes her POP!  I had a hard time with the ribbon.  The white was just SO plain so I thought jazzing it up a bit with some rhinestones down the middle would make it look a bit more sparkly!

For the inside, I embossed the Congratulations in the same silver and then I used the bottom swirls of the wedding dress to dress up the edges of the inside AND I did the same with the envelope.  It just adds a bit of elegance that I LOVE!

All in all, these stamps were worth the wait!  Miss Devon outdid herself with the bride and groom and I think they are definitely going into my Suzy's Favorite List!

If you would like to take these lovely stamps home you can find them on our website:

If you end up making something stunning with the stamps, PLEASE share your photos with us!  I would love to see them in action!

I guess my procrastination time is over with.  I have 7 more of these cards to make and I better get my butt in gear if I am going to finish them before the hubby gets home.  =)

Until next time,

Happy Stamping!
