Stampin’ Up! Love & Laughter PLUS a New Mojo!

Stampin up wedding card idea heat embossing occasions mini catalog punch 2
Stampin’ Up! Love & Laughter rubber stamp set (Occasions Mini Catalog) is the essence of a chic, modern wedding design.  I love the mix of fonts and crisp look when heat embossed, especially white on black.  See stamp images below.  I also have a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for you (MOJO231, designed by Julee Tilman).


  • The Love & Laughter wedding cake was heat embossed and then snipped out with my Paper Snips.  It’s popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.

  • I used three different options from the Stampin’ Up! Basic Pearls Jewels collection (stick-on is oh so quick and easy).  The little string below the cake looks like a scallop border!
  • The classy striped embossing on Basic Gray card stock was created using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Stripes Folder can be yours FREE with a qualifying order (starts with a $50 product order) during the Sale-A-Bration Promotion.  Learn more about Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration.

  • Alas . . . the Paper Doily Sizzlits Die.  Yes, it can be a challenge getting the tension right for clean cutting and popping out those intricate bits (I use my Paper Piercer).  However, the finished result is worth a little experimentation with the tension (“to shim or not to shim”) and Big Shot sandwich order.  This can vary from Big Shot to Big Shot.  Please, don’t force it through 🙂
  • Here’s my Paper Doily Sizzlits  line up (from bottom to top):  Multi-Purpose Platform on Tab 1, Cutting Pad, 1 piece of Whisper White Card Stock used as a shim, Paper Doily Sizzlits Die face up (centered on the shim and platform), Whisper White Card Stock, Cutting Pad.  Note:  This will vary a touch depending on the thickness of the card stock or if using Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.
