Bloomin' Hearts Wedding card

Hi all,

It's Bloomin' Hearts week here at RnR Stamping. This die is so amazing and so much fun to work with! Some of the projects you're seeing this week we'll be making in class on Saturday. 

As I've been creating, I've been cutting additional cardstock and getting set for my stampin' mates! The first card I created was a sympathy card. I quicky found out how much time it took to clean out the heart die between cuts. Thankfully, my SU! order arrived last night. I actually had given up on dear Mr. Brown and turned off the driveway and front door lights. The doorbell rang about 45 minutes later. I was thankful that I had shovelled my front walk again when I got home from work. I felt bad he was in the dark!

Any-hoo, to make a short story long, my SU! box contained my Big Shot die brush. Let me tell you, if you have ANY intricate dies, this is a MUST HAVE! It makes incredibly quick work of cleaning paper bits from your die. I never realized how badly I needed this product;)

So, on to my project for today, a wedding card. I love the look of white on white. For a wedding card, I wanted a bit of shimmer so I chose our Shimmery White cardstock. If you've never seen this paper, it is simply beautiful; put it under a light and wow, what a shimmer!



  • To provide a bit of an accent, I pulled in some basic gray. 
  • Save cardstock! Crop the gray heart from the piece you're using for the layer - no one will ever know!
  • A vintage embossing folder was used, but the Lovely Lace folder would be perfect with this card.
  • The front panel is popped up on dimensionals to allow room for the ribbon and to add dimension.
  • I chose not to place the flowers in their 'matching' spot on the die in order to draw attention to the sentiment.



  • The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the banner from Bloomin' Love. It is fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.
  • Love Blossoms embellishment kit is the source of the string of pearls that are attached with a glue dot.
  • Whisper White Organza ribbon tied it all together.
So, what do you think? Please leave a comment below, I love hearing from you!

Take gentle care,
Sue

  9. I was introduced to this Flower Delivery New York by a friend and I couldn't be happier! I needed 5 table arrangements, 3 larger arrangements for a buffet and rented 4 plants. Result was totally amazing.
