Scrapbook: Beautiful Bride

I apologize in advance for the quality of the photo. I have been having some camera issues I am still sorting out. I wanted to feature some of my cousin's wedding photos. She is a beautiful person inside and out.

Once I saw her wedding bouquet it brought to mind Tim Holtz vibrant Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. To bring out the metallic accents in the background i added Stampin Up bronze metallic paper which was so much fun to use.

Stampin Up: Spiced Marmalade flower detail

This is an embellishment I created for a very beautiful wedding page. I embossed photo paper with the SU Manhattan Flower impressions die. To bring out the detail in the paper I brushed it with Tim Holtz distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick).

Card: Plaid is the new black

This is a multi-purpose card that came about when I saw a snippet of this wonderful plaid paper. I embellished it with the new SU butterfly cut out of vellum cardstock and Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder.

Card: Thanks 4 everything

As promised, this is one of the cards I created using the new SU butterfly die. One of the butterflies was actually embellished with the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder prior to die cutting and with buttons from SU's Button Bouquet. The yellow paper was embossed with the SU Manhattan Flower impressions die pictured below. The card is SU Kraft paper, and cork paper for added texture.

Stampin Up: Shelli's Signature Die - Butterfly

When I saw this Bigz die in the catalog I knew I had to have it, and the fact that I was able to use it with my Cuttlebug was a bonus. I will be adding a few of the cards I created using this die.
(Details: 5-1/2″ x 6″■ Rule-based die which can cut up to 50 different materials■ Fold paper and align with the side of the butterfly for an even bigger image)

I am in love with these new window sheets from Stampin Up.... I embellished this card with pearls from the Pretties kit, and a rubon from the Chateau Bella pack. The rubon went on just like buttah!
