Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Wedding Card Snippets ++++ with NBUS Challenge



Hullo there everyone! Well two cards to share ~ one made entirely on snippets only new items were the tape used and pearls !!! Think this is a record for a snippets card for me!
Oh, and some NBUS on both cards.
First card - snippets used - except base card. The Crafts Too blossom embossing folder + butterfly Vivienne MB are both new unused items. Inks (Distress) were shown on desk last post below. Card for someone in need.
A wedding card for a friend. The NBUS is the Gold labels 4 in the centre with greeting, I was able to emboss the printed digi after printing because of glossy sheen on card. All card used was from invites to wedding, except the base card which was a order of service from another wedding. So all printing on invites are on the back. The slightly tinted pink on bottom of petals of  Britannia Poinsettia dies is another piece on invite as it is the bubbly centre piece. SB Borderability Scalloped also used and popped up on each layer. Swirl is leaf swirl by memory Box. Initials are from Cuttlebug Olivia dies
 
Can see layering better here. The Embossing folder is Couture creations Tied Together. What was such an answer to prayer was found the font used on invite and matched perfectly (on Dafont - AdineKirnberg Script).
Also recycled the envelope by turning it inside out re-gluing it, and putting black and white music print washi on sticky edge of lick down part of envelope, now on outside. Wrote names by hand on the back.
Well thanks for peeking everyone, happy WOYWW and may God bless your day wherever you may be, Shaz in Oz. x

Shaz, your cards are stunning and a wonderful inspiration too. I also was amazed at your pineapple plant. I was unaware you could grow these in your area. I would no doubt have a dozen plants as I love fresh pineapple. You will definitely need to post when it gets ripe and you cut in to it. Have a great week.

Oh wow...This are great projects. My fave is your wedding card with all the shine and the embossing--truly a masterpiece! So grateful you link it with us at Word Art Wednesday. There is still a bit of time left to join our current challenge and we hope you visit us again. Encouraging you with God's Word in Romans 15:4 and it says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope."

Blessings always,
JO ANN

Hi Shaz!

I wonder if I first spotted that Blossom folder on your blog, but I suspect not. I went searching for the name of the one I have. So strange that more than one label uses the exact same design isn't it?

Hugs

Di xx
