Create a Beautiful Wedding Scrapbook Page

With-This-Ring-1

By Alison Heikkila –

Hello! It’s time for my latest tutorial for Imagine, and I decided to make another scrapbook page. This time, I went way back and pulled out some wedding photos. I never did finish our wedding album, so this was a great opportunity to get one more page completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Time to Complete: 1-2 Hours (I’m a slow scrapbooker)

Directions:

With This Ring 2

Step 1:

Gather your supplies. This may seem obvious, but it helps quite a bit to grab a bunch of things that you may wind up using on your page. Inks, ephemera, dies, stencils, etc. are all things that you could use. I grabbed a bunch of items for the photo above, but I didn’t use all of them, and some things i used aren’t shown here. I don’t often have a plan when I am scrapbooking, but I like to grab things to help get me started.

Step 2:

Based on the colors in the photo, I wanted to use the Vineyard Kaleidacolor Ink Pad. I took a piece of Mixed Media Paper and rolled the ink on to it using my brayer and Ink Potion No. 9. The Ink Potion No. 9 helps the color to move and transfer better. It took a number of passes to get the paper covered, but I love how it looks painted and uneven. This piece will go behind the photos to “ground” them. Let dry.

Step 3:

Paint or enhance your ephemera. I found some feathers that have foil on them in my stash, and the negative space was white. So I applied some of the Kaleidacolor Ink to my Craft Mat and painted it on with a brush and water. The look is subtle, but it helped it to coordinate with the rest of my page better. I also added some color to the stopwatch.

Step 4:

Add die cuts. I die cut a few lavender stems from white cardstock. I used Elderberry Memento ink and the greens from the Vineyard Ink to paint them. These pieces are delicate, so don’t oversaturate them. I also die cut some foliage from white cardstock and lightly spritzed them with Desert Sand Fireworks! Spray. Using white die cuts allows you to completely customize them.

Step 5:

Add die cuts with colored cardstock. I die cut the wreath out of green cardstock. It needed to be enhanced a bit, so I lightly applied Pistachio and Olive Grove. It’s subtle, but adds a lot of interest.

Step 6:

Enhance textured die cuts. I used an Impresslits border under both of my photos. I cut it out of white cardstock, and used Pretty Petunia VersaMagic Ink to enhance the design. I just rubbed the ink pad across the piece. I also sprayed it unevenly with Desert Sand fireworks! Spray for shine and to dull down the white a bit.

With This Ring 7

Step 7:

Begin to place your elements. Play with torn edges, overlapping items, and creating a sense of movement. Move things around to make sure you have good, even placement, and feel free to add or remove pieces as necessary.

With This Ring 8
Step 8:

Add some splatter. I used some more Elderberry ink that I squished on to my Craft Mat to apply splatter to the entire white background. It’s just a bit more color, but it adds a lot to the finished page.

Step 9:

Add your title. I found some ridiculously old rub-ons and letters to help me create the perfect title.

With This Ring 9

Step 10:

Start gluing down your elements. It helps to take a photo of your layout before you start gluing, so that you can place your pieces back exactly where you had them. On Point Glue is perfect for the teeny die cuts I used.

With This Ring 10
Step 11

Finishing touches. Do you need an additional sprig of foliage? Do you need a touch more ink somewhere? This is the point where the page is just about finished, and you just need to add a tiny detail here and there.

With-This-Ring-1

Finished!

We’ve got a very pretty wedding page that works beautifully with the photos and feel of our wedding. Don’t forget…even if your embellishments and/or color scheme are completely different from mine, you can still use these techniques when creating your own layout. Playing with your inks to help enhance items you have in your stash can really tie everything together. Play with your papers and dies to see how you can alter them with inks and sprays to get exactly the look you want. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card_blog

By Neva Cole 

In today’s card making tutorial, I will show you how to make a Textured Metallic Wedding Card using VersaMark, Delicata, and Embossing Powder.  This is a stunning card to make for a bride and groom as they celebrate their wedding day.

Skill:  Intermediate

Time:  2 hours

Directions:

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card-Step1

Step 1

This technique involves inking the FLAT side of an embossing folder for either 2-D or 3-D folder.  This folder is 3-D with both indentations and slight protrusions.  Ink the folder well using a brayer and VersaMark ink.  Place white cardstock in folder and pressure emboss.

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card-Step2
Step 2

Sprinkle liberally with Black Embossing Powder and heat the card from below with a heat embossing gun.  Allow cardstock to cool.

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card-Step3

Step 3

Lightly rub Delicata Golden Glitz over the surface of the cardstock.  The high areas will pick up the ink.  This creates a great three dimension look of black, white, and gold.  Trim the finished panel to 4” x 5 ½”.

Step 4

Stamp “Mr.” & “Mrs.” in Delicata Golden Glitz and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  Fussy cut the banners with scissors

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card-Step5

Step 5

Die cut four “Congratulations” die cuts from white cardstock with Spellbinders Phrase Set One.  Use an ink dauber to color the top die cut then heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  Use very small dots of On Point glue around the letters of the die cut to glue the layers together.

Step 6

Trim a strip of black cardstock to 7/8″ x 4″.  Stamp with a background stars stamp in Delicata Silvery Shimmer and heat emboss with Silver Embossing Powder.  Once cool add shine with Sheer Shimmer Stix in Sparkle.

Step 7

Step 8

Stamp the sentiment inside the card with Delicata Black Shimmer and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.

2021-Jun-Neva-Metallic-Wedding-Card-Step9

Step 9

Adhere card layers together with TearIt Tape, and adhere die cut with On Point Glue.  The small little dot (tittle) of the letter “i” is replaced with a small gold adhesive rhinestone.  The original tittle was too small to layer together.

Step 4

Emboss a scrap cardstock strip using Indigo Pealr Mboss embossing powder and VersaMark Frost. Then cut the strip with a scallop edge. Emboss a chipboard heart using the same Indigo Pearl Mboss embossing powder.

Step 5

Assemble the card by adhering the panel to a folded card. Then adhere the embossed heart using On Point glue as well as the embossed strip and embellishments to finish off your card.

The embossing powder adds some glamour and shine to this simple yet fun card. Just like the couple – fun colours combined together with a touch of glam and pizazz.
Mboss embossing powder really takes any project t the next level. Available in a  huge variety of colours they truly are amazing.
