April Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop: All About Weddings and Anniversaries

It's blog hop time, which is always so fun and this month we're focusing on weddings and anniversaries.  Spring is one of the busiest times for weddings so this will provide you lots of great ideas for your upcoming events.  If you've been following along the hop you've just come from Bree's blog, isn't her work awesome!!  Don't worry, if you're just starting here you'll be able to follow the hop all the way around to see all the wonderful creations.
This card has a Pool Party cardbase and then I added a layer of First Edition Speciality DSP.  On this piece is stamped with the splatter image from the My Paper Pumpkin Welcome kit with Primrose Petals ink.  I also added a piece of Delicate Details Lace Tape.  I used it as a stencil and sponged around it with Pool Party ink so it adds a nice subtle image.  The next layer is a piece of More Amore Speciality DSP and then Victoria Lace Trim Ribbon, and Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon that was scrunched up using sticky strip to adhere the ribbon to the card.

For the main focal image, I used one of the Real Red laser cut hearts from the More Amore Speciality DSP and then a large heart cut from the silver glimmer paper cut with the Big Shot and the Hearts Collection Framelits.  The greeting is from the Word Play stamp set and is stamped with Real Red ink before being punched out with the Large Oval Punch.  I also sponged around the edges with Pool Party ink.  This piece is matted with a piece of Crumb Cake that was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  To add a little "bling" I added a rhinestone to the sparkle part of the image.  Now I have to admit, I have a love affair with dimensionals and due to all the layers of ribbon and paper I used several dimensionals to attached the heart and greeting and actually stacked some of them up so that it really "pops" off the cardfront.
This card is so full of detail and texture it will sure to WOW anyone who receives it!
