Wedding Cards!

Card projects designed by Sharon M. Reinhart as shown in the May 9, 2016 CardMaker Update
I would like to invite you to take a look at my most recent CardMaker Update, Wedding Cards with Flowers and Flourishes! I love creating paper flowers and it just can't get any easier when you create the flowers with the help of a die-cutting template. All of the flowers in this update have been created with the use of a die template. The flourishes used have been created with the use of die templates, embossing folders, and rubber stamps. I hope you will head on over to CardMaker Magazine for a closer and more in depth look at each card, it is the May 9, 2016 issue. It is a free resource and if you haven't already, sign up while you are there and new inspiration from Kimber McGray or myself (Sharon M. Reinhart) will show up in your inbox every three weeks!
Creatively Yours,
Sharon

Paper Crafting Inspiration


Projects designed by Sharon M. Reinhart

Had a great time sharing some inspiration at the Happy Critter Crop yesterday (fundraising event for animal rescue) an event organized by Sandra Lavoie. Great job Sandra! I shared this little make and take with attendees at the crop. Here is a little tip, when you are looking for inspiration you don't always have to start on a big scale. Start small as shown with the 3-1/2-inch mini card on the right in the photo above and then you can always build on it as shown in the photo below with the 5-inch square card. I also find its a great way to create ensembles, adding the favor bag shown above on the left.
 
The supplies used to create the cards are Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink yellow ochre, Stampin' Up Flower Shop rubber stamp set and coordinating punch, Martha Stewart butterfly and leaf punches, Fiskars mini scallop edgers, Hero Arts sentiment stamp set LP253, Wonderfil thread, green cardstock, shimmer yellow gold cardstock, and white cardstock.
I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful today!
Creatively Yours,
Sharon
