Irish Blessings

The first card is a wedding card, probably a bit non-traditional but I like it. I thought it might well suited for a groom’s dinner. My inspiration came from this card of Claire’s. I just love this image. The stamp sets I used are Waltzingmouse Stamps Irish Blessings, Celtic Heritage and Off Beat Backgrounds.  The inside says “Congratulations on your wedding day.” I used colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The border punch is by EK Success. I stamped the grid background from Off beat Backgrounds in PTI’s Spring Moss on PTI’s Spring Moss twill ribbon, waited for it to dry and then distressed it a bit with PTI’s Chamomile & Chai tea dye inks.

My next card is a “welcome to the neighborhood” card. I was trying to capture the pinkish-golden glow of a summer sunset. The stamp set I used is WMS Irish Blessings. I used my Cricut to cut out the card’s window. PTI’s Tea Dye Duo was used to distress the card and give it a vintage, rustic feel.
