Aren't these sets adorable!  I know you can't wait to get your own so click HERE to go to K Andrew's store.  Did you know that all of K Andrew's stamps are made right here in the USA?  And if that's not enough to get you all warm and tingly inside, she also donates $1 to charity for each set that is sold.  Each step set benefits a different charity!  Her stamps are so versatile!  You can mix and match within the set or you can take different words/sayings from different sets to come up with the perfect sentiment each time!  So what are you waiting for my friends, head on over there and check out her stamps and don't forget to tell her Miranda sent you over!  

On to today's project!  As you know I've been featuring the Winter Wishes stamp set all week, showing you some of the word combinations you can make with this set.  As I previously stated the possibilities are endless!!!! Today, I made a Wedding/Bridal Shower card.  Please take a look and let me know what you think!  I love comments! 

I used the Tie the Knot Cartridge for this card!  I love these doves, they can be found on page 34 and 35.  I used Dove and Dove-s as well as Dove2 and Dove2-s.  Both images along with the layers were cut at 2.25 inches using my E2!  I love that machine!  My black card base is from Recollections Precious Metals and is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  The red layer is also recollections paper - Gemstones and its cut at a weird size because I wanted more of the black paper to show.  The dimensions are 5 X 3 14/16.  I'm really liking these papers because they are shimmery.  I picked them up at Michael's while they were on sale around Christmas.  Sorry I sometimes ramble.  My silver card stock is from my stash but I pretty sure it's DCWV, it too is cut at a weird size.  This layer is cut at 4 3/4 X 3 11/16.  I used a EK Success Deco Scallop corner punch on all four corners and put on with SU dimensionals for some depth.  I ran both the red and silver card stock through the Cuttlebug using the Victoria Embossing folder.  My sentiment is from K Andrew's Winter Wishes set. I stamped it on some white Recollections paper also from the Precious Metals pack using Memento Tuxedo Black and cut the corners off to make my label.  I really don't know how to make a bow so I sorta cheated to make this one behind my label.  I put a medium glue dot on the back and made a loop added a mini glue dot and made another loop and continued that until I had seven loops, then I cut a second tail and added that with another glue dot.  Finally added a final medium clue dot to adhere it to my card.  Not bad for not knowing what I was doing, if I do have to say so myself.  LOL  Finally, I pop dotted my doves for some dimension and added some Glossy Accents to the heart that the doves are holding.

  3. Like the Dove card. I use to raise Ring Necked Doves while growing up E coast FL. Especially like the embossing. I've been playing with embossing & Ranger paint dabbers today.
