Birds in a Tree Wedding Invite

This is a 5×7 flat wedding invitation for a fall/autumn wedding. I used My Digital Studio to create the printed layer, and added stamped leaves using a variety of inks. The tree is from the Bold Branches brush stamp set in MDS, the leaves are from Season of Friendship.

The base is Very Vanilla layered with Chocolate Chip card stock. The little birds in the tree are stamped in Taken with Teal ink.

Whimsical Autumn Wedding Invitation

I came across a similar wedding invitation last year when looking for inspiration for my brother-in-law’s fall wedding invitations. You can see the design they decided on here.

This version is a sample I created for a client (hi Erica). It was created using My Digital Studio. I used a combination of brush stamp sets including Cheep Talk, Circle Circus, and Bold Branches. The finished size is 5″x7″. After printing on Very Vanilla card stock, I layered it with More Mustard and Chocolate Chip card stock.

To give it a bit more dimension, I used Versamark marker and Clear Embossing powder on the circles and the bird. This really makes it pop and gives it a more polished look. It’s difficult to photograph, but it looks great in person!

Flower Fancy Birthday Pearls

This is a birthday card using the Flower Fancy stamp set. By changing out the sentiment, this could make a beautiful Easter card, Get Well card, Thank You card, or general all occasion card.

The card base is Marina Mist textured card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip and Nursery Suite DSP. Across the front, I added Marina Mist 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

As I mentioned earlier, the flower is from Flower Fancy, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White. I colored the flower in with Pretty in Pink ink and an Aquapainter. The center is colored with So Saffron. To finish, I sprayed them with Shimmer Mist and cut them out with scissors. Using Basic Pearls, I dressed up the center of the flower with the adhesive back pearls in 3 different sizes. They are adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from On Your Birthday in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Using the sponge dauber, I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around the edges and matted it onto Chocolate Chip card stock. Underneath the sentiment, I used more of the Basic Pearls.
