PPA 132 Stampin’ Up! Love & Laughter

Ppa 132 mary fish
Welcome to this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA132).  Are you ready to try your creative hand at the latest PPA Design Team color challenge?  Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip anchor the feminine and flirty color scheme for this wedding card.  See what the rest of the PPA design team created HERE.


  • I’m a softie for a pretty font.  The clever use of text and font in Stampin’ Up! Love & Laughter rubber stamps (images at the end of this post) command attention!
  • Stampin up demonstrator wedding bridal card love laughter catalog punchTo get the flagged end of the “congratulations” sentiment even, I used a Stampin’ Up! square punch (in this case, the 1″ Square Punch).  Watch my video tutorial for more tips on Creating a Flagged End.
  • Wide Pretty in Pink striped ribbon is a rich finish . . . reminds me of a wrapped present.  Since many wedding cards are given in person, there won’t need to be any special considerations for postage or bulk due to the yummy ribbon.
  • A touch of pearls makes any ensemble more elegant.  Stampin’ Up! Jewels Basic Pearls are a quick and easy accent for the dress and flowers (lower right)
