Welcome to the blog of Jane Hignite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Happy Hour Wedding Card-VC Rocks Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to the last VC Rocks Blog Hop this year.  We are featuring the Big Shot, punches, and the Simply Scored Tool. 

This year, my downline will be creating set samplers at every meeting.  My favorite stamp set right now is Happy Hour-and I love making samples with it!  However, I wanted to show a real standout and elegant card using this set.  Here is what I came up with:

 

2012 VC Rocks Blog Hop August-Happy Hour

 

I love this color combination – Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, and Whisper White – and it is EVERYWHERE!  I used the Scallop Square Die and the Delicate Designs embossing folder with my Big Shot.  See those wedding bands?  I used my 1/2" circle punch first and punched out two circles.  Then I took my 3/4" circle punch and punched over the "leftover" scrap piece where I had punched out the first circles.  You'll get those perfect little wedding bands!  You can use mini glue dots or Tombow multipurpose glue to adhere the wedding bands to the ribbon.

The Delicate Designs embossing folder is simply gorgeous – I especially love to use it with our Whisper White card stock!  Add a little bling with our basic gems and our Daffodil Delight seam binding and it really dresses up the card.

You probably came from Brenda Hugar's blog – and your next stop is Mary Jo Price-Williams' blog.  If ever you get lost along the way, you can start over again at www.vcrocks.blogspot.com .

I hope you enjoyed this stop along the way.  Enjoy the day!

Jane, what a pretty card – love the wedding rings and your tips.  I almost never use Basic Gray but guess I need to start and see what I can come up with.  Thanx for sharing with us and for your creativity – I always love to peruse your site.
