Last weekend I attended the Estevan 1st Annual Ladies Night/Bridal Show. I had my Stampin' Up! booth with samples of handcrafted invitations, favours and decorations, in addition to some of my other projects. Here are pics of the items I had on display:
This was a coupon that I provided for the gift bags for the registered brides. It also serves as a sample of an invitation. The colour scheme I used for all of the bridal projects was soft suede and very vanilla. The stamp set used is Wedding Sweet on page 80 if the big catalogue. This set can be used for invitations, congratulations, save the date and thank yous. This particular sample has a belly band around the coupon that is embellished with a flower made from scallop circles. I love these flowers!!
This sample of an invitation uses a different fold and is tied closed with soft suede taffeta ribbon. Inside there is a the invitation info on the centre space and the side has a pocket for the RSVP card.
The main image from the Wedding Sweet set was used to stamp on a battery operated pillar candle. The outside has a wax coating so you are still able to heat set the image onto the candle. The shade for the luminary is cut from vellum using a template. A battery operated tea light sits inside a wine glass which is the base for the shade. Add some basic rhinestones to these items and you have some lovely lighting for your tables.
Last but not least are samples of the favours. The sour cream or twisty favour is embossed with the elegant lines embossing folder. An oval is punched out at the bottom of the favour and covered with window sheet. This allows you to display the treats inside. Basic pearls add a nice touch to this favour. The match box favour uses specialty paper from the Beau Chateau paper pack. A pretty in pink ribbon is so pretty with this paper. Inside are Hershey nuggets wrapped with the Mr. and Mrs. wrap from the It's a Wrap Occasions set. Finally, a simple thank you note card is stamped with the smaller image and thank you from the Wedding Sweet set. The eyelet border punch, basic pearls and soft suede ribbon make this simple card look quite elegant.
In addition to the excitement of the Bridal Show, I was so excited to have another club start this past week. The majority of the members are new stampers and I can't wait to share the fun of stamping with them. I will post our club projects next. Thanks for stopping by.
