Good Morning Stamp-A-Faire 2015 and Bridal Challenge

Good Morning to everyone having fun with Papertrey Ink's wonderful Stamp-A-Faire 2015 event!  Did you see the wonderful opening video?  If you didn't you have to go check it out!  So full of fun!

I love joining in this event each year!  I live in the Pacific Northwest so we get a very early start if we want to be ready to go with all of our East Coast friends - not to mention everyone joining in from around the world!  What time is it where you are?  Here is what I was doing very early this morning to get ready....

First you brew some very strong coffee......then you pour it and add some cream and needs all the help they can get this early.....

 Then of course you start to drink it....

And once you feel that your eyes are focusing properly you can head downstairs to your craft room to start joining in the fun....

So here is my first Stamp-A-Faire 2015 card for the Bridal Challenge:

 The sentiment is from "Love and Marriage" and is embossed in silver to match the silver paper I used for the bride and groom die cuts.

I also used the "Night Sky" cover plate in vellum for the background.  To add texture I used some glue and glitter around the edge of the card.  This turned out so beautiful but I had a very difficult time getting a good photo!  LOL!

Thanks for taking a look!  Have fun today! I have lots of out-of-town guests this weekend so I am not sure how many cards I will get made today and tomorrow....but we have until Tuesday morning at 7am to participate so I hope to get a few more made if time permits!  Whatever you are doing - ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

Edited to add: new picture....I forgot his vest, hankie, and bowtie!  Oops!  That is what happens when I craft in the early morning hours! LOL!

  1. That's just beautiful! I love how the Night Sky cover plate acts like a starry curtain! I was on the line about getting that one, but I have to tip to the "yes" side now... I always struggle with the start time of this event for us Pacific Timezone folks too! It's brutal! ...but SO. MUCH. FUN.! ;)

  2. Pretty card, so stunning with the glitter! I HAVE TO start out my day with a strong cup of coffee too. It definitely helps me to wake up, and I need all the help I can get! Smile. Hope you are having a very blessed weekend! Hugs, Jill
