As many of you know, my sister is getting married this week. For today’s project, I wanted to share one of the signs that we made for the wedding using the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die.
If you have ever planned a wedding, you know that there is a lot of signage needed, reserved signs for the family, a thank you message for the gift table, instructions for the photo booth (all the rage at weddings these days), etc. Of course, you know I couldn’t just put a plain old framed sign out there… what a perfect opportunity to make our signage something beautiful for the wedding using dies and punches from Stampin’ Up!
For the flowers, I used the Flower Frenzy Die, Fun Flower Punch, Pansy Punch, Petite Petals Punch, and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch. There isn’t a magic combination, I just played around with layering the different shapes and came up with something that I liked.
Here are a few tips I discovered along the way…
- Use lots of layers & curl them with a bone folder.
- Sponging the edges of the petals makes a world of difference!
- Attach the layers together with Stampin’ Dimensionals to make them pop!
- Use Stampin’ Blendabilities markers to color the pearls in the center (I used the Bronze marker from the skin tone assortment for the largest flower).
By the way, the actual signs were digital downloads purchased from Pineapple Soup Printables on Etsy. We were able to purchase several custom signs that met our needs. Lisa was great to work with and she got our order together very quickly. Here are the other signs she created for us. I would highly recommend working with her if you need any custom signage for any event.
I think these signs turned out beautifully and they will add a touch of whimsy and a pop of color to my sister’s wedding. The frames would also make a great gift for someone you love. Imagine giving a treasured photo of a grandchild in a beautifully decorated frame! The possibilities are really endless.
