A Camera and a Wedding!

Alanna was the Featured Stamper over at Split Coast this week - I had not seen her gallery before so it was a pleasure to be introduced to it today. I actually chose 2 cards to CASE. For my first card - I was inspired by her camera card . I used a different camera stamp, used a coordinating DP for my background and added a punched fence.

Stamps: Imaginisce Snag Em Stamps - Scooters Vacation collection
Paper: rustic white - PTI, Riding hood red & black - SU, DP Imaginesce Scooters Vacation/click
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Tea Dye
Accessories: sponge and applicator - Ranger, copic R35, fence punch - Martha Stewart, small heart punch - McGill, foam dimensionals

My second card was inspired by Alanna's vintage wedding card

I've been wanting to use my new Kitchen Sink multi step Wedding couple so this was the perfect opportunity! I had to practice stamping it first to get it lined up correctly (there are 6 stamping steps with this set and multiple colors of ink to give it this great look). After I tried it the first time -the second time was easy - you just have to get used to the multi step technique which they explain on their web site.

I made my flower by punching a circle, cutting it into a swirl and rolling it up starting from the outside edge.

I just LOVE this wedding couple stamp don't you?!

Stamps: Kitchen Sink Stamps - Multi Step Wedding Couple
Paper: white - PTI, silver- Unknown, mulberry - unknown
Ink: Versafine Onyx blac, smokey grey, vintage sepia, Memento - Rhubarb stalk, cottage ivy,m angel pink, Brilliance perlescent beige, Versamagic - Wheat, pixie pink,, Ranger Distress tea dye
