Wedding Decor ~ Guest Designing for Something Tattered

I have been invited to guest design for Something Tattered with their gorgeous stamps.


I've created two coordinating wedding decor sets to share with you.
My goal was to create pieces with lovely details that would be easy to reproduce for a wedding.

Burlap is hot right now for weddings. I've always enjoyed combining grungy, earthy items like burlap with more elegant designs and textures as you will see in this first set. 


Close-ups and Details
Amour is love and a perfect sentiment from the AMOUR Amour Stamp Set for this die cut at the corner of the Table Number decor piece. 

I simply used a 5 x 7" photo mat as a base, cutting the burlap just larger than the mat and fringed the edges. This Opulent Ovals Spellbinders die was the perfect size to stamp the lovely sentiment and was tied with a bow of jute twine. 

Many of the Something Tattered stamp sets have gorgeous and unique flourishes.  I stamped and heat embossed this gem from the Fleur De Lis Bird and Arrow Stamp Set below the table number. This frame could be easily repurposed as a home decor piece by switching a photo for the table number.

The Twine Flowers are hand crafted with instructions located on my blog here

This is a quick and easy gift bag that could be used as part of the wedding table decor. I used a larger Opulent Ovals die that was another perfect fit for the larger Amour and gorgeous flourish. Both of these images are from the AMOUR Amour Stamp Set. Once again a simple jute twine bow adds a bit of rustic elegance.

The burlap bag is premade from SRM Stickers. Burlap does not stamp well with delicate stamps, so I pulled out a sheet of cork from my stash. Not only did it look great with the burlap, but these fabulous images stamped with perfect detail on it. I selected this medallion image from the Frieze Stamp Set since it included a heart in the motif, so perfect for wedding decor. The cork and lace are glued into place.

My second set is for a more elegant wedding.


Close-ups and Details
I used another 5 x 7" photo mat for the table number piece. I stamped this image from the Swirls Stamp Set in white and then heat embossed with a pearlescent embossing powder. The design really pops and shimmers in real life. Again this piece can be used for home decor by swapping a photo for the table number.

Under the table number, I used a different flourish from the Fleur De Lis Bird and Arrow Stamp Set. It is stamped in black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder ~ a great trick I learned to get the lovely raised image, without stray bits of "black" embossing powder showing up on the background.

It is hard to see in the photograph, but I stamped "veins" on the butterfly wings with the July Juillet Stamp Set image to add another layer of dimension before sprinkling with Twinkle Dust Glitter. The butterflies are cut with Wonderful Wings dies. I used a pearl flourish for the butterfly trail, but you could also use liquid pearls for this.

Finally, here's a shot of the little organza bag that could be filled with white mints as a table favor. Or, how sweet would these be filled with bird seed to toss on the bride and groom after the ceremony?

I inserted a piece of cardstock into the bag to avoid the ink going through to the back of the bag and used Jet Black Archival ink to stamp this stunning medallion image from the Frieze Stamp Set. Although the ink is black, the image is a beautiful soft gray on the white organza. 

The tag is stamped with the Amour image I've used previously along with an image from the Fleur De Lis Bird and Arrow Stamp Set. A seam binding bow and little white flower add an elegant finishing touch.

I hope you've been inspired to create the table decor for your special wedding using Something Tattered stamps. Not only are their designs gorgeous, but the quality of these lovely stamps matches their beauty.
