Wedding Invitations

 It's been a while since I have posted anything . To be honest my craft room is in such a mess it's almost  impossible to work in there. Since I lost my airing cupboard to a new boiler all the linens have be stacked up outside the  craft room making virtually  impossible to get in there. The problem should be resolved tomorrow as my new bespoke  linen cupboard arrives. But enough of my  domestic babble and on to my latest creations.
I was asked  last week to knock up a few samples of wedding invitations as cheaply as possible.  So I have been forced into clearing a small space on my work bench to create the invitations below.

I don't know the bride to be so mum is giving me ideas as to what  her daughter may like.
Instructions so far  are  they are going for a beach/ travel themed wedding and the chosen colours maybe blue and/or yellow.
For the invitation above I have used bashful blue card stock and ribbon and the scallop shell from the Natures next stamp set  stamped onto whisper white card and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

The second one is the swallowtail background stamp from SU heat embossed, again using silver embossing powder on whisper white card stock.

The third one Marina mist card stock and the scallop shell again with silver embossing powder.

Mum also mentioned Butterflies  so I have used the
Swallowtail stamp to create these two invitations. I can't say they are my cup of tea but I do find that other people tend to like the card I make, that I don't like. (Very strange)                                   Here I have embossed the butterfly in white and daubed  pool party ink all over the embossed image


 I have more ideas brewing in my head and during the summer I shall be making more samples.

Another project I am working on is a mini album of my NEW GRANDSON. He arrived 9 days early taking us all by surprise.
I will post photos of the album when it's completed.
