HSS 117

Hi stampers! It's Tuesday and I'm EXCITED!  My copy of the new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up Catalog should be here this morning!  I've seen in online but can't wait to page through it in person!  I have a hair appointment today so I'm excited I'll have it to pour over while I wait for my highlights!!! You can get your own copy if you let me know you need one and you can see it online and order from it June 1!!!!

Anyway, since it's Tuesday, it's time for another fun challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!


This week is all about weddings and sophistication!  So pull out your best and show us what you got!  Here's what I came up with:


Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Love & laughter
Paper:  Whisper white, neutrals DSP stack
Ink:  Basic black, versamark
Accessories:  White embossing powder, neutrals glimmer brads, white taffeta ribbon, blushing bride pleated satin ribbon, basic pearls, itty bitty punch pack

I used my simply scored diagonal plate to make a background....which reminds me of my wedding cake:-)  I had swiss dots alternating this this type of quilted pattern.  Annnnd, now I want some cake...my cake was the best I've ever had and it was orange dreamsicle!!!  Oh wait, we were talking about stamping:-)

For the dress I used emboss resist and then cut it out and added my ribbon to the bottom. I also added a little detail to the waist with the itty bitty punch pack!

Now head on over to the HSS challenge site and see what the rest of the DT came up with and be sophisticated with us!!!

Happy stamping!
