Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop ~ Weddings and Anniversary

Hello and welcome to April's Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop! It's spring and we all know what that bells will soon be ringing and anniversaries will be celebrated.  If you just came from Jennifer's blog, don't you just love her project this month?!?!
My brother-in-law recently became engaged and will be getting married next summer.  He and his bride-to-be kindly asked me to make their wedding invitations and I am thrilled to take on this task!  Right now I am just playing around with some different designs for them and thought I would share one with you since it fits right in with this month's theme.  
This first project is a pocket style invitation.  The invite slides right into the little pocket and will be perfect for mailing.  I used MDS for the wording on the invitation, but the rest is hand stamped. 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Basic Black, Pool Party, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Ink ~ JetBlack StazOn, Pool Party
Stamp Sets ~ Lovely Letters Alphabet, Everything Eleanor, Artistic Etchings
Other Supplies ~ Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Extra Large Oval Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, MDS
 My next creation is a fun wedding favor box I made using the Petal Cone Bigz Die.  It's a simple little box, but if I'm going to be making 200+ of these, I want to keep it simple ;)
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Pool Party, Brushed Silver, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink ~ JetBlack StazOn, VersaMark
Stamp Sets ~ Lovely Letters Alphabet, Tiny Tags
Other Supplies ~ Cone Petal Bigz Die, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 3/4' Scallop Circle Punch, Jewelry Tag Punch, Pool Party Embossing Powder, Pool Party Bakers Twine, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon
And my last project is a thank you note card...a wedding must, right?!?! I used the Pool Party Embossing Powder on the Brushed Silver Paper.  I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I was happy with the end result.  There is just the right amount of shimmer in the silver pretty!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Note Cards & Envelopes, Pool Party, Brushed Silver
Ink ~ JetBlack StazOn, VersaMark
Stamp Set ~ Everything Eleanor, Mr & Mrs, Curly Cute
Other Supplies ~ Pool Party Embossing Powder, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon
