Stampin' Up Wedding invitation and decoration ideas

From Jun 16  - stampin' up! blog

Wedding Bells . . . and Godzilla

Cindy B is Senior Staff Writer at Stampin' Up, and her daughter, Gloria—who works in Demonstrator Support— is getting married. Congratulations!

So Cindy was assigned the cardmaking duties and her daughter's wedding colors are red and brown. Cindy and her daughter both love the Cheers to Love Stamp Set from the new annual catalog, so she began by CASEing one of the cards on pg. 71.

As it turned out, neither Cindy's daughter or her finance liked that card, so she tried again.

The two cards on the right got the thumbs up.

Finally, they settled on this one made with the Real Red and Very Vanilla patterns in the new Flashback Designer Series Paper.  But Cindy and her daughter agreed that it still needed a little something.

She added a layered butterfly using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. (Though the embellishment looks like a Basic Pearl, it’s actually a Basic Rhinestone.) She also used Crumb Cake Cardstock and Gold Foil Sheets. Cindy cut out the oval frames using the Big Shot and the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies.

Then they needed invitation inserts, so Cindy created them using MDS—and yes, those ARE Godzilla figurines. (Cindy's daughter, Gloria and finance, Robby are both big fans).

Cindy's daughter and her fiancé are both writers and wanted a fairy tale theme for their reception, so she made faux books for each table using empty boxes, Flashback Designer Series Paper, Kraft, Real Red, and Very Vanilla Cardstock, and the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies.

(The back of the book.)

And here is a banner Cindy made using the Celebration Basics Kit. The flowers were created using the Big Shot, the Floral Frames Collection, Real Red Cardstock, and White Filter Paper.

Donna G. from Demonstrator Training was kind enough to show me how to make tassels for the banner.

I used White Filter Paper. (Donna spritzed her White Filter Paper using Crushed Curry ink.)

Adhere Sticky Strip to the top of the Filter Paper. Make cuts every quarter inch, as shown. Roll up the tassel using a wooden skewer. I stacked a few sheets on top of one another so I could make several tassels at the same time. Tip: pencil lines on the paper to help with cutting.

Cindy will probably be posting a few more wedding ideas before the summer is over! I know we all wish Cindy and her family the best of luck with the plans and wish the happy couple a lifetime of joy!
