Music inspired cards

Music Wedding

I had an order for a wedding with blues and grey tones and music themed…she is an opera singer. I didn’t get to April’s Card Sketch #2 – originally a Paper Craft Crew #235 – last month and when I looked at it I thought it would work for a wedding card. This is what I came up with and was very pleased with it.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Jacaranda, cinder, smokey, bazzill white)
Accents/Tools: Twine from Target, heart rhinestones, The Paper Studio Music embossing folder, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge

Music Birthday

So I needed a music themed birthday for a 96 year old (I made her one last year too). Since I had just made the music wedding card I thought maybe I could put flowers instead of hearts and this is how it turned out. The Recollections flowers were a RAK from TexasMomOf4 several years ago.

Yellow/Gray/Black Card

Yellow Gray Black Flower.JPG

So I posted the sketch on the Sketch Challenge (Feeling Sketchy #147) and Karen posted the color challenge (gray, yellow, white).

FeelingSketchy6-15-16

Well I happened to have a ton of yellow and gray scraps because I helped a friend last year with wedding signs and she gave me all the scraps. So I decided the sketch and color challenge should go together. Well then I went to Michael’s and guess what they had in their $1.50 bins….yep yellow, white, gray and black flowers. They were PERFECT!! They only had big ones in white…so I took off the center of the white one and put a medium black flower on top of it. So then I went back to the jewel aisle and found the perfect jewel swirls and got them discounted with a coupon!!! SCORE!!! I finally got a “wow” out of my husband when he looked at it….haven’t got one lately so I was excited!! I left the tag blank because it really could be for many different occasions…birthday, wedding, sympathy.

So I was going to go horizontal with the sketch but after seeing Cardiographer use a vellum tag to the side I decided to do that same thing with cardstock. Thanks Cardiographer.

13th Anniversary Sage

A lady at work requested a Happy 13th Wedding Anniversary for her daughter and son-in-law. She said one of their weddings colors was Sage.

I used lace because that was the traditional gift for the 13th anniversary.

Cardstock: Bazzill (lily pond, spring breeze)

Wedding Hearts

I love to see God work in his perfect timing. Deedee put out this new adorable stamp, Two Hearts, and I wanted to use it for the Allsorts Challenge – Love is All Around that Deedee’s is sponsoring. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it until one of my “customers” at work stopped me and asked for a wedding card he needed now because the wedding is on the 14th (he has to mail it!) Since guys don’t know to ask colors of weddings I had him send me a photo of the invitation. So with the colors, pink and green, decided on I went looking for a sketch and found sketch #25 at STAMPlorations Blog to be perfect. stamplorationschallengesketch25-web
