Nephew's getting married today

My lovely nephew Jordie is getting married to Emily today and like most of the time I left things til last minute.

No inspiration was forthcoming so I fell back on my old standby.. white on white.

Martha Stewart patp edging, white stardream card, couture creations embossing folder, spellbinder heart & flower dies.  Marianne Design flourish die, memory box "gypsophelia"  bit of satin ribbon.  StampinUp sentiment embossed in silver.

Pic doesnt show it but the hearts, flowers, gypsophelia & ribbon have all been edged with pva and a white crystal glitter.  I'm sort of wishing I hadn't added the gypsophelia but it does look better in real life lol

time flies.. eek

Somewhere I think I lost my mojo back in december when I had the most hideous virus, not just for creating but photoing what I have made and without photos there's been nowt to put up here.  So I'm going to try and make more of an effort to do just that, not that it would be hard seeing as I havent posted for 7 months, oops.

Here are a few bday cards made for playday friends, ott pop up card made for mothersday, a wallhanging made for a meltpot playday and a mixed media canvas scrapbook stylee.  I wont bore everyone with detailed descriptions but if anyone is desperate for info just email me at playingwithpaper  @ 

Rather blurred Prima doll, Dyan Reavely saying, DesignsbyRyn raindrops, some dandelion fluff stamps

Distress Inks, Jofy stamps, Martha Stewart clay & mould, watercolour pencils & docrafts glitter varnish.  The varnish leached the paint badly, I'd have been better off using a wink of stella glitter.

Distress inks, watercolour pencils & jofy. 

Distress inks, spellbinders lattice die, Dyan Reavely leaf stamp (all cut by hand), bought spray of flowers & a bow.  Cant see it in the pic but the background has loads of layers of stencils, perfect pearls biscotti spray, crackle stamp & perfect pearls gold powder.

The most ott card I think I've ever made, as many su flowers and diecut leaves as I could shove in.  Monstrosity springs to mind lol.

 Diecuts, stencils, paste & sprays with a picture of my lad taken a few years back.  He's not as handsome now.. he's got a face full of ginger beard and appears to be auditioning for zztop.
 One of those pics that no matter what you do blogger and facebook turns to one side.

For a meltpot playday, papers beeswaxed and utee roses with diecut leaves.
