It's a S2G Blushing Bride Blog Hop!
Welcome to the S2G "Blushing Brides" Blog Hop!
This Hop is all about that Special Day in a 'girl's' life! It's ALL about Weddings, Showers, Brides, and LOVE! S2G has created a bunch of NEW Digital Stamps just for the occasion. If you came here from the very talented Jeannie's Blogthen you're in the right place! If you just happened to stop by my blog, then head over to the S2G Challenge Blog and start at the beginning.
This image is "Sweet Bride"...and sweet she is! For this image I used "Something Old"-DP, "Something New"- the "Sweet Bride" image, of course, and my new MS lattice heart punch, "Something Borrowed"-the idea to use organza ribbon on cards (Thanks, Georgia!), and "Something Blue"- blue CS and a blue rose. Wouldn't this card be perfect for a bridal shower?
If you're going to a bridal shower, it's always fun to receive a party favor!
(My favorite thing to make!)
I made a silver shoe because "Sweet Bride" is wearing silver shoes. I stitched a tulle bag and filled it with scented bath salt balls that I found in the dollar bin at Michael's.
I used the same DP, blue CS, glittered CS, and ribbon that I used on the card.
I used the same digi image on the card to make a tag. I have a hint on how to do this. It would be hard to color an image this small with so many details. What I did was color the image, scan it, and shrink it. It could then be easily cut out and applied to a tag.
The heart and flower match the ones on the card. The shoe design is my very own, and is
This cute image is "Wedding Cake". I envision it as an invitation to a Bridesmaids' Tea hosted by the Bride.
I told you earlier that I LOVE making party favors, and I have one for this party too!
I was lying in bed the other night, unable to sleep, when I had the idea to make a tea cup favor...just perfect for a tea party! I drew a sketch and then worked from there. I used most of the same DP, CS, and embellishments that I used on the card.
Here is a view of the back (not as fancy as the front). I painted around the edges of the handle and base with Gold "Smooch".
And a view of the side. I pleated plain, pink, satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby. I added this gorgeous pink ribbon to the handle that I found at Hobby Lobby.
I made a tag to match the invitation. I colored, scanned, and shrunk the image like I did with "Sweet Bride". What's inside the tea cup? I found a Vintage handkercheif at an Antique shop. Weddings always make me cry! The hanky could be tucked into the bridesmaid's bouquet to carry down the aisle. Other items I would tuck inside the cup would be Lindt's Lindor Chocolate Truffles, a few bags of Spiced Chai Tea, and a Gift Card.
I hope you've enjoyed my part of the "Blushing Brides" Blog Hop. I am always so inspired by S2G images! Next stop on the hop is our very creative DT Coordinator, Debbie! You're sure to find her creations inspiring! Please leave a comment on each of the DT members blogs, and on the S2G Challenge Blog.
