Our oldest grandson married the love of his life Carole on November 24. I was so honored when they asked me to make their wedding cake. It has been years since I've made any wedding cakes. Needless to say I was pretty nervous. Fortunately they didn't want one too big, so I made a 10', 8' and 6" cake with each layer 4" high. The theme for their wedding was Country and their colors were Navy, Teal and Rust. All of their table decorations were made from burlap and dried flowers. I looked over my Stampin Up supplies and decided to make leaves out of the Bigz Autumn Accents die and the Wonderfall stamp set. I stamped them out of Glossy White and colored cardstock and inked them with Old Olive, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point. I ran all of them through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I made the rossettes for the top out of 2" wired Burlap ribbon I bought at a local craft store. Carole made the "B" for Baker from a wooden letter and wrapped it in twine. The wedding was perfect, they even had my husband participating. He does wookworking, so they asked him to make a 48' cross for the alter. It turned out so beautiful. Of course during all the excitement I didn't get many pictures, but managed to get a couple of good ones.

I made 14 of this card for my swap at our American Ink August meeting. I love using Embossing Folders to make cards. This Folder is called Elegant Lines. A quick and easy way to color is by using a Stamping Sponge dipped in a Classic Stamping Ink Pad. I love the new Itty Bitty Banners Stamps. Add a ribbon and bling and your card is ready.

I needed a thank you card for several friends and decided that rather than a card I'd make each of the ladies a little gift. Since I hadn't used my StampinUp Petite Purse die yet it would make a great gift for my friends which I filled with candy. The Polk Dot Parade DSP looked so cute on each of them. Stamping thanks so much with Tiny Tags and punching with the Jewelry Tag was the perfect touch.

I made this card at my upline's monthly club. She has the coolest decorated studio. I'm really into pinwheels lately. This one is 4" x 4" and made with SU Polka Dot Parade DSP. I just love that paper pack. The tiny pinwheel is a stamp from the Hostess set Happy You. I really like the new 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. It's so nice to have markings on both sides of the ribbon so I don't have to struggle making my bows look good on both sides.
