CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - October New Release - Day 3

Hi everyone, so glad you've been enjoying the New Release products from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  We still have three days of ideas to share with you as we give you a closer look at each new set.

Today its all about 'weddings and anniversaries' with the 'Ever After' stamp set:

I don't actually own any stamp sets for weddings so was super excited to see this one. The sentiments and fonts are so beautiful and it can be used for lots of other occasions as well.

For my card I was thinking back to my own wedding, which was 16yrs ago.....can't believe we haven't killed each other yet??!! It was very small and our colour theme was lilac and white, so decided to include that on my card:

The part I remember the most about organising our wedding was that we wanted to make little bags of purple jelly beans for our guests but couldn't buy that colour on its own. So a few times a week for a month we would go to our local supermarket and pull out all the purple jelly beans from the self serve area. It took forever but it was really fun doing it together.

To start off I heat embossed the 'Heart to Heart' stamp set on white CS using WOW! 'Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter'. It is so sparkly in real life, just couldn't capture it with my camera. I fussy cut around the edges and added white foam to the back. I measured a piece of lilac CS that was slight wider than the hearts and adhered to the card front and glued the hearts on top.

For the sentiment I heat embossed it with the same embossing powder on white CS and backed with the same lilac CS, putting it on white foam as well. And to finish off I glued on some Neat and Tangled sequins.

  1. I love the purple! Great design and love the sequins! Beautiful sentiment stamp!

  2. Love the hearts. Going to be great
    for Valentine's Day. Great card.
    thanks for sharing

  3. Good to know you aren't a murderer. The way you showcased this sentiment by matting and framing in with the hearts behind it is what makes this a special wedding card.

  4. What a gorgeous card - my daughter was married 15 years ago and also had lilac as her 'colour'!! Love your card Shona, that heart background is stunning!
