Timeless Love Wedding card

You may remember this card that I made for a bridal shower that I went to. The wedding is next month so I thought I would actually plan ahead and make the wedding card now instead of the night before. You know what I'm talking about. 

Stampin' Up! Timeless Love stamp set. Congratulations card for wedding or anniversary. White and coral. Handmade by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
The bride's color is coral so the color choice for my card was easy: Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi. I used the new stamp set, Timeless Love and stamped the flowers with Black Stazon ink because it is waterproof. Then I just added layers of color with an aqua painter and ink. 

Stamping Tip: To add even more shading, use a Calypso Coral marker around the edges. It works best when the card stock is still damp from the aqua painter.

The white card stock base is something I am so excited about! It is a new heavy weight Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up!. Emphasis on the words heavy weight! We still carry the regular Whisper White card stock of course but this one is fabulous for card bases. I haven't tried it for stamping yet - I'm just thrilled to have a white card that stands without bending.

Stampin' Up! By the Tide CCMC362

I am going to just jump right in today and show you the color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.
I have to admit that I had a difficult time steering away from a patriotic card! All I could think of was a country/folk art type card with stars and Happy Independence Day. Instead I went with this card:

Stampin' Up! By the Tide stamp set. Red Lobster on Kraft. Blue background. Handmade ocean themed card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp

I just realized that this card is also Americana with a red lobster and Nantucket emblem! Ah well. 

I played around with my layout and ended up just using part of the lobster. Pretend the rest of him is hiding in the seaweed :) After I added my layers, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of card stock that I punched with the new Banner Punch. Love that punch so much! Yes, I could use my scissors and cut it but the punch does a much better job. 

Speaking of punches - I used 3 for my Nantucket emblem. You know I do love framelits but for quick and easy - punches win hands down.

To add just a touch more red, I used some sequins from the new Brights Sequins collection. They are on sale this week (while supplies last) by the way. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Then head over to Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog and at the end of the CCMC challenge post is a link to link up your card. Need help? I would be glad to help as would any of the design team I'm sure. We can't wait to see what you create!
