MMSC19 - Wedding Bells


So I had a wild idea! Ever get those? Our Sponsor this month at Midnight Madness is DRS and they generously let us have our pick of stamps. One that I chose was this Christmas Bell stamp. Yup, it's Christmas bells. HOWEVER, our niece was getting married this past weekend (Congrats Shelby and Erich!) and I needed to make them a wedding card. I decided I was making Christmas bells into Wedding bells! LOL!



Lots of Stickles again this week! I actually colored the little dinger thing inside the bell black and then used Star Dust Stickles over top. I also used Strawberry Ice Stickles on the ribbons and yummy Eucalyptus Stickles on the leaves. I was afraid the leaves might be a little Christmasy but I think they are ok.

I used my Cricut and Home Decor cartridge to cut out the 'forever' on the side and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the ovals.

Lots of Paper Tole going on too! I used my Big Shot and SU texture plate to add dimension to the frame. I hope my niece loves this card as much as I do!!!

We have a new weekly sponsor this week! Sammye Jo Monroe Singer from 62Cards. Be sure to check her out and a portion of your purchase goes to 3 scholorship funds! Wonderful cause! She has some great giveaways this week for playing along with us at Midnight Madness! Check them out HERE!

Sue, it just goes to show how versitile stamps can be! You made this wedding card look spectacular and I'm sure your niece will be so happy with it. Love all the details, the forever sign is fantastic! The stickles adds some beautiful sparkle to an already gorgeous card.

You are such a creative girl! If anyone could pull this off, it would be you, and you have done it so beautifully. You would never know that those were to be Christmas bells. I love the colors too and that gorgeous oval frame and the forever cutout. What a special keepsake for the lucky couple!

wow, I had to look twice to notice these were Christmas bells after I read it. It is stunning with all of the texture and the beautiful flowers! I think she should put it in a frame!

Sue, what a beautiful card you created. I love that you were able to take a Christmas stamp and make it into a wedding card. And a very beautiful one at that. Your neice is going to treasure it.

This was such a wow when I first saw it on Priscilla's blog. Great work popping up the bells. Nice touches everywhere on the card, too many to mention. And I like your pumpkin haul, one patch does take up a lot of space, doesn't it! Nothing like fresh pumpkin pie though.
