Just like yesterday, I have two cards to share with you today!  My first card features the newest offering illustrated by Jessie Oleson, Sweet Bliss!  Cuppie gets married!!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE this set, as you know I just ADORE Cuppie!  This full sized set of 16 images comes on a sturdy, full color storage panel, and is PERFECT for wedding, engagement and anniversary celebrations! 

I started by stamping Mr. & Mrs. Cuppie (hehe) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and then masked them.  I then stamped the chapel behind them, removed the mask and colored all of the images with Copic Markers.  I stamped the "Just Married" banner on a seperate piece of cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers and then cut it out and popped it up with Foam Tape.  I cut out and embossed the panel with Wonky Rectangle Nestabilities.

The patterned paper is My Minds Eye Lime Twist Life Of The Party and I added a border with the Small Scallop Border Taylored Die.  I added a bow of Baker's Twine and then adorned each corner with a Baby Pink Candy Dot (LOVE these!).  I added tons of machine sewing and for the sentiment, "For The Happy Couple", cut it out and embossed it with Circle Nestabilities and layered it with Scalloped Circle Nestabilities.


Here is the Taylored Die I used on this card:


For my second card, I used another FABULOUS new addition to the Moka Collection, Moka Jack!  Just like the rest of the awesome Moka Collection, Moka Jack was designed and illustrated by the amazing Nancy McKinney and comes on a sturdy 3 X 5.5 color storage panel!

OK...so as soon as I saw Moka Jack, and this sentiment, "Mr. Right", I KNEW I had to make him Edward!  Even his outfit is reminiscent of Edward's suit in New Moon (I know...I have issues)!  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and colored him with Copic Markers.  I gave his face two coats of Candelight Shimmerz so that he sparkles just like Edward (swoon!).

I used my Wonky Rectangle Nestabilities again to cut him out, and I then added a black brad in each corner.  For the sentiment, I created a little flag and then attached it to the focal panel.  All of the patterned paper is My Minds Eye Lime Twist Out Of The Blue, and I added a border with the leftover piece of paper after using the Heart Border Taylored Die (thanks to Karen for this fun tip!).  Some Baker's Twine and tons of machine stitching finish this off!


Here is the Taylored Die I used on this card:
