Shades of Blue and Gray Wedding Cards

Hearts - wedding

I had an order for a wedding card with shades of blue and silver. I made this one using a sketch from the Card Sketch Challenge and I thought it was okay. My husband was not impressed so I went back to the drawing board and made a different card.

Wedding - hearts & flowers

So after the making the first one and it not working I searched the internet and found some inspiration.
I used the colors of the wedding – shades of blue and silver. I used some old old Prima flowers I have had forever.

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.

May Inspirational Card Challenge – favorites category.

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.

I made another one (see attached) but made it general birthday with a Happy Birthday embossing folder.

I used Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #235 for my inspiration.

Accents/Tools: The Paper Studio Music embossing folder, Recollection flower pack, pink rhinestones, Doodlebug bright assortment twine, pink brads

Happy Birthday flowers

I made the music one and still had a set of flowers left so I made another one just using a Happy Birthday folder instead.

Sunflower Wedding and Birthday

So one of the guys I work with is getting married tomorrow. So I made a card for all of us at work to sign. He said they really didn’t have wedding colors but was decorating in sunflowers and country feel. So this is what I came up with!! Found the sunflower stickers at Hobby Lobby and they were on sale that week!!

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).


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 the pagemaps sketch that was Sketch #1 in the June Card Sketch Challenge. Instead of the 6 flowers I did 2 hearts in that space. I used lace because that was the traditional gift for the 13th anniversary.

Accents/Tools: lace, Embossing Folder (Darice – Layered Hearts, Cuttlebug – D’vine Swirl), paper piercer, fiskars corner rounder small, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

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

2) February Card Challenge @ – Sketch Category – use the STAMPlorations sketch above as inspiration.

I conquered a CAS sketch!!

Leave a comment

One of the older gentleman at church asked me to make a wedding card for a young couple at the church that is getting married this week. I found out their colors are blush and gray. Karen is hosting October Card Sketch Challenge and she usually throws in a CAS sketch that just stumps me. I’m soooo not a CAS person. Well, I was not going to let the sketch get the best of me!! This is sooo funny but I was so happy that I conquered this sketch….I love the outcome!! Thank you Karen for pushing me out of my comfort zone (I like to give you crap but I’m truly grateful!).


The flourish is from Shery K Designs…it is a FREE SVG file.

For the bride and groom


Bride & Groom

Clearly Digi Stamps (Clear Dollar Stamps) is sponsoring the Twist of Faith Challenge #17 – White and Gold Only. So come over and play as the random prize winner will receive a $15 voucher for use at the Clearly Digi Stamps store.

I try to play along in challenges that CDS sponsors which sometimes is a challenge….as this one proved to be. I didn’t want to make a Christmas card so trying to fit white and gold only can be tricky. I do like that I was pushed out of my comfort zone because I like how the card turned out.  I used The Deconstructed Sketch #81 which was a tag sketch that I modified to fit a card.

Hope you will come play with us.

Wedding Cards


A lady at work requested a wedding card. She gave me an invitation so I could see the theme and colors (yellow, blue, grey). They are also outdoor people that love to hike. On the invitation they had a tree and Isaiah 61:3 and she said if it could have those that would be awesome. So my husband drew me a tree and this is what I came up with. I did two so she could pick which one she likes the best.

It is yellow and grey I promise!! The sun made it look funny.

I have always wanted to try to make this card fold, Zig Zag or Center Step Fold, so I decided I would do it! I look at two tutorials and figured it out Splitcoaststampers and High Hopes Stamps (I like the drawing she has).


1) Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #29 – Under Construction! But we’re talking construction in the creation of your card… we would love to see your creations that are more than a single-fold or gate-fold card…. what’s your favorite? Easel Cards, Step Cards, Spinners, Sliders, Shaped cards, Waterfalls…. my goodness there are so many construction projects to create!
