Wedding Week: Mylie

Hi All,

It's Wedding Week over at InStyle Stamps, and today's featured stamp is Mylie.  I couldn't decide whether to make an elegant project or a fun one, so I made both!  Head on over to the InStyle Stamps blog to check out what all the Design Team have done...

For my first project, it's a card!  Here she is:

The card base is Whisper White, then there is a layer of Whisper White CS, where I cut around the edges with decorative scissors.  I added 4 Gold Photo Corners onto that piece, and added some pearls to each corner (from Michael's). 

For the main panel, it is also Whisper White, and I used one of the Luxe Label brass templates from the Touch of Grace store (see my sidebar for link) to emboss the cardstock and cut out the pieces between the medallion.  I added some Gold Krylon pen to the outside, and some pearls.  I weaved some White Organdy ribbon through that medallion, and tied it in a bow.
I printed Mylie onto PTI White CS, and I used the same brass template to cut her out in a smaller panel, and added Gold Krylon pen to the outside of that.  I printed Mylie off again, coloured her in with Copics, and cut out her head and dress, and stuck them onto the panel with Dimensionals.

Here is my second project - I thought it could be a gift for bridesmaids, maybe?

I decided to make a 3" x 3" Notecard Box as a little gift.  I made it with Raspberry Tart DSP, Whisper White CS, and Rose Red CS.   

For the top of the box, I used my square Nesties to cut out a Whisper White square, a Rose Red square, and a Whisper White scallop square.  I added some Rose Red sponging to the white square.  I printed Mylie off onto PTI White CS, coloured her in with Copics, cut her out, and mounted her on with Dimensionals.  I printed her off again onto DSP and cut her dress out to paper piece it on.

I printed the sentiment onto white CS and cut it out for the lid of the box.  It says, "My friend got married, and all I got was this stupid dress..."!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stoping by!
