Ta Dum De Dum! I absolutely adore weddings and this week, Taylored Expressions is helping all those June brides say 'I do.' I have two projects celebrating weddings and engagements, so let's dive right in to those happy nuptials!

When I saw my favorite cupcake in the new Sweet Bliss set (illustrated by Jessie Olson) and all the darling wedding cuppies, I was inspired to create a comic strip card starring these delectable love doves. Using a simple template drawn in a word processing program, I created the panels and stamped in a fun strip following the happy couple. I colored everything in with Copics, sticking with bright, bold solid colors.


I thought I'd switch from the ceremony to the engagement with the a new A la Carte stamp, You're Engaged  from Nancy McKinney. The bride was on my mind with this pink and white card on which I wove some strips of card stock for a pretty background. For a bit of fun bling with some liquid pearls on the gorgeous ring.
