Creation Station Blog Tour – Weddings

Posted on

creation station header

It’s Sunday already! But it’s a good Sunday because it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! It’s our fourth one already, can you believe it?! I’m hoping that you have been along for the previous tours and if so welcome back! If this is your first time with us I think you will enjoy your little visit! If you are following the Tour you have arrived here from the very clever Jennifer Downey. Always fun projects! This time I focused on the Weddings part of our list. I didn’t take as many pictures as usual because the card and tag use a lot of the same elements. Off we go!

My first project is a card. The finished size is 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ so the leaves can hang over and it still fits in a standard envelope. I used colors that I thought would be nice for a summer evening wedding. The card starts off with a base of Hello Honey Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Starburst Framelits to cut out a piece of Hello Honey to serve as true backing for my flower. Before we get to the flowers I used the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die to cut out some Sahara Sand for the leaves.

The flower is stamped twice in Blackberry Bliss using the Bloom for You Stamp. I punched them out with the Fun Flower Punch and curled the petals on the top one. I stamped it again in Hello Honey and used the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the middle and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

My greeting is from the Lovely Labels Stamp Set, I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss and punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch. A piece of Hello Honey is flagged and adhered behind it. A fun very non-traditional wedding card using some of our great new In-Colors!

Next up is my tag. It uses most of the same elements as the card. The tag is created using the Angled Tag Topper Punch and Hello Honey Card Stock. Another piece of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack makes the background.

For the tag I used a greeting from the A Round Array Stamp Set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The Bitty Banners Framelits make the piece being the greeting and I tied the tag to one of our Mini Muslin Bags. I think this would make a great little favor for any occasion!

Last I have a little bonus project. I thought that a pillow box would make a nice favor too. I used the “Vintage” Pillow Box Bigz Die cut out a piece of Hello Honey. The band around the middle is more of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the same greeting as on the card but my flowers are from the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. A cute fun favor that wouldn’t be too difficult to make a bunch of!
