Wedding Card, Rose Video and Exciting News

Hello Everyone!

A quick thank you to everyone who has visited and subscribed to my YouTube channel. I really appreciate all the support and feedback. For those who already watched my last video, this is the card I made to show off the lovely lilac roses that I made in the tutorial. In keeping with my determination to keep it soft and subtle this week, I decided to do a wedding card.

A big thank you to Mona Pendleton of Cupcake's Creations for being such an inspiration. This card was inspired by her style. I highly recommend you pop over and visit her, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Mona!!

I apologize for being around to visit your blogs the last couple of days. My Mom has dropped in for a surprise visit and I haven't seen her since Christmas. I promise to catch up with everyone this weekend. 



For the very back layer, I embossed a piece of white card stock with an M-Bossabilities folder, painted it with Slate Grey DecoArt Americana paint and then highlighted it with a touch of Memento London Fog ink.

For the top layer, I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and some texture paste and then painted it with Wisteria DecoArt Americana paint and then highlighted it with a touch of Dusty Concord distress ink.




The die cut behind the heart is Whimsy Circle by Memory Box. The heart is painted with DecoArt Americana Titanium White paint and highlighted with my silver Krylon pen. The half circle doily dies are cut from a Crafty Ann discontinued die. I threw a half a Spellbinders circle on top then I used a Recollections doily stencil to lay down that gorgeous pattern. Slate Grey DecoArt Americana paint and London Fog touch ups.


And now for my shabby roses! I finally got my first flower tutorial video done, YAY!!! I posted it on Monday, but for those who missed it on my channel, here it is. I hope you enjoy and let me know if I have left anything out that I can improve on for the next tutorial.





UPDATE:
My rose card won an award in the following wonderful challenge:

And now, I am so excited to share my wonderful news with you. I have been accepted into the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program!! I have been such a fan of the DecoArt products since I discovered them earlier this year, I am just so excited to get to help promote these fabulous products to the crafting community! My first box of goodies has arrived in the mail this week, so I will be putting them to good use very soon. Thanks DecoArt, I am just thrilled to part of your team!




That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.

  1. WOO HOO! Wow, Pamellia, I'm thrilled to death for YOU! You are a such a talented artist, and the folks over at Deco Art must be thrilled and honored to have YOU on their team! I'm so very proud of you and so very happy for you!

    Enjoy your surprise visit from your Mom! You are so blessed to have her in your life; enjoy every minute of your visit!

    Your card is just another stunner, Pamellia! I just don't know how you do it! But I'm so glad you do, because each and every thing you create just touches my heart in a special way! I love your colors on this card... so soft, and I just want to hold this, turn it every direction and see all that glimmer! It sure looks great here and I know in real life it will really sparkle! I'm a subscriber to your channel, but I guess I'm not really sure how to find out if you've made a video. So I'm happy you posted this on your blog as well. I'll be back to see the video for sure! I couldn't wait for this one! Huge hugs, my friend!

  3. Oh this is exquisite Pamellia! Can def see Mona's gorgeous influence and you have cased her beautifully. Nice idea to use the doily as stencil! Love that resin heart and of course I'm a krylon gal too so love the silver touches. But the pièce de résistance really are those sublime roses! Will check out video tonight. Well done you on the Decoart programme - you are rockin' their products. Enjoy the time with your dear Mum. Happy weekend. Nicola x

  45. Where do I begin? (mmmm sounds like a song to me, ha ha). You just don't do 'ordinary', do you Pamellia. This is yet another example of beautiful perfection. Those roses are delicious, and your video was fabulous-thank you for sharing your expertise.

    I hope you had a lovely time with your Mum (mine passed away 24 years ago...the horrible big C). How lovely of her to surprise you like that.

    Huge congratulations on your DecoArt appointment, Pamellia, although it comes as no surprise. I imagine they (and other companies) would be tripping over themselves to recruit you to their teams.

Now, down to business...what an amazing video! I make roses all the time, but this technique is very different...and really wonderful. I will watch again and give it a go because those roses are nothing short of amazing. Your card...so many luscious layers of softness! I love the way you repeated the circle design...love those itty bitty butterflies and the gorgeous texture all the distressing adds. Just pure artistry! And I love Mona Pendleton, too! xo

  83. This is undoubtedly the most special event venue in the city. We had 6 passed appetizers with the Liguria table which consisted of steamed veggies and fruits and breads. I didn't even care that I'd just been to another feast less than 12 hours ago. At Los Angeles wedding venues I could not stop eating.
