I love making cards for my coworkers for their birthdays. One that's coming up likes monkeys, so this year I used an old set from Stampin' Up! called Sock Monkey.

I was asked last minute by one of my co-workers if I could make a card for the wedding she was going to over the weekend. I say, sure, what style/theme would you like? Beach? sure.... no problem. Already in my head I'm thinking of a few images I have....
So I get home that night, and right after dinner, I get to work....
this is what I came up with:
after getting my fingers all inky using Tempting Turquoise, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake and inking up the whisper white card stock. I was quite pleased how the colours blended. I then took the palm tree from another retired set: Tropical Party. I used my SU Stamp and write markers in Soft Suede and Old Olive and coloured on the stamped image and lined it up using my stamp-a-majig. I then stamped the bride and groom on whisper white and archival black. This image was from the SU Best of set: Brides and Babies. I added by using my aqua painter coastal cabana on the tux, bow and flowers. I then added some blush blossom (another retired stamp n write colour marker) then I took my wink of stella and coloured in the bride's dress. I also took my white gel pen and added "waves" to break up the beach and water. I then stamped the outside sentiment from the stamp set: For the New Two. I punched a row of the hearts from the heart border punch, and used a heart that covered the black one from the sentiment.
I cut a piece of crumb cake card stock and inked the edges with soft suede and used that as a mat between the card base and image.
I typically do not write or put sentiments inside all of my cards, but sometimes I do. I did for this one:
so after getting a "shove" from another member on one of the facebook boards I share my work on, she suggested I submit it to
'Stamp Ink Paper'
(CAS means Clean And Simple!)
thanks for looking.
happy stampin' :)
