Today my shows are scheduled on Create & Craft at 11am with Nigel and 4pm with Andy. I hope you can join me.
This is one of my favourite cards that I've made for the shows and I'm hoping that it will be my first demo. Just to give you a heads up - the ribbon is on the show and I don't think it'll last very long. There are 3 new stamp sets from Sue's RubberNecker brand at Creative Expressions. I also have Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Embossing Powders and some fab embellishments on the show.
Anyway, here's the card -
I started with some Milk card for the background. I dusted it with my anti-static bag and then randomly stamped one of the swirls from the Creative Expressions Beaded Elements Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Golden Green Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set it. I popped the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Hedged Maze Embossing Folder. The Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder doesn't crack. I edged the piece with Pine Needles Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Let it Snow Stamp Set using Olive Archival. I then covered the image with a piece of Self Adhesive Film. I cut it out using Spellbinders Large Labels. I removed the cover from the film and dipped the piece in some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle Glitter (THE most fab glitter!). I cut a Fleur de Lys Rectangle out of green card.
I wrapped a couple of pieces of sheer iridescent ribbon around the background and also tied a bow with 3 lengths of it. I threaded an Idea-ology Bauble onto some Primary Baker's Twine and tied a bow.
I stamped the sentiment from the Let it Snow stamp set using Olive Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Pine Needles.
I have asked if we can have some Cosmic Shimmer PVA in Holly Green but I am waiting to see if it arrives. In the meantime, I thought I would have a go at some dots with Cosmic Shimmer Emerald Green Twinkles - not quite the same but I think it looks ok. I also added some to the Christmas tree.
Hope you can join me today - emails always welcome as I always give away cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
