Bridal Shower Gifts and a little house update.

Hi Crafters,
I'mmmmmm back!!  I received such kind love on one of the craft boards I frequent, it made me smile.  Here's the card I made to go with the wine glasses in the post below.  The bride is from Sweethearts.  I embossed the skirt of her dress, the background, and the bouquet with my cuttlebug.  I used the heat affix tool to add some gems and smooth pearlized to add some accent to the skirt.

I also made a set of stationery with the couple's monogram.  I heat embossed the text. I used red pigment ink and clear embossing powder.  I used a ruler to help me find the center and stamped the large T first.  I then arranged the smaller letters on a separate block and stamped those next.
The font is actually from two separate Martha Stewart sets.  I found one at Walmart on clearance about a year ago and the smaller set I found at Michael's on clearance in the past month.  I cut the background at 4.25x5.5 and the white at 4x5.25.  I made a box to put the cards and envelopes in but was running low on time, so I didn't get a chance to take a picture. 

Here's a quick short of the house the CraftyMr is "crafting" for us ;)
I'm standing behind the house on the hill for the first 2 shots.  We're going to have amazing views from the second floor (which is where the craft loft will also be).  The right side shows the basement and the most recent addition, the chimney.

Happy Crafting,


  1. The card is beautiful and so are the glasses in your last post!

  2. Love the card and stationary. Great job. That view looks great!
