Wedding Wishes Card

Hey everyone! I am back again & this time, with a project to share 🙂  If you missed the new weekly giveaway, please be sure to check that out (click here!).

Today, I am playing along with the MarkerPop Coloring Challenge #9, which is to do some paper piecing along with your shading. I hope you will play along with us this week!

I chose to paper piece this lovely bride stamp from the I DO stamp set by The Greeting Farm.  The design team also showed off some creative uses for Washi Tape. I chose to make some cute borders on my card using the Washi Tape.

Sometimes, especially if I am in a creative rut, I find it really helpful to play along with challenges because it really helps give me a starting point. From there, it is much easier to design your own cards. Do you use challenges as a starting off point for your creations?

ENABLER ALERT: This stamp set is currently marked down to $10!! It comes with TWO cute greeting farm people so that makes them $5 each, plus it comes with two sentiments. *sigh* Such a good deal!  They are wedding people, but I am already trying to think of other uses –the formal little guy could be used for regular old guy cards, she could be used for a prom or quinceanera themed card. You could even cut off her veil and she could just be dressed up with a tiara on.


Here is a closer look at my coloring. I forgot to go back and make the catch-lights in the eyes white, oopsie!! I will have to do that before I send out this card.

The veil and the dress were paper pieced with patterned papers from the My Mind’s Eye The Sweetest Thing paper pad called “Honey”. I also used a patterned paper from this paper pad on the card.

I did some shading on the veil and dress using Copics: W00, W0, and W1.

To color in the rest of the image, I used the following Copic colors:

  • Skin: E00, E21
  • Cheeks: E02
  • Leaves: G43, G46
  • Hair: E25, E27, E29
  • Flowers & Tiara: RV25

I cut out a label shape from white cardstock using the Nestabilities Labels Nine die template from Spellbinders.

I added some washi tape to the background patterned paper & then slapped on a sentiment (also from the I DO stamp set). The card base is white cardstock.

This finished card measures 5X5inches.

Here is another look at the finished card:

  1. What a sweet card, Samantha! The paper piecing, coloring, patterned paper background compliment your image perfectly. Let me just add that I love the addition of Washi tape for a different texture. Challenges do motivate me as well as take me out of my comfort zone…which can be a very good thing. Good luck with your Dr.’s appointment!

  2. Samantha – You are so tempting me. I am in a no spend mode except for my monthly kit but I am dreaming of owning some Greeting Farm stamps and what a deal. Love your card. I love entering challenges because it helps me to think outside the box and create something that I might not have accomplished otherwise.
