Simply Fabulous!

Hi Bloggers.

A card from the Creative Expressions Stylish Ladies Stamp Set today which will be included in the shows on Monday.

I figure this card could be used for any occasion including Christmas!

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Bouquet Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern, It doesn't match up exactly but that really isn't a problem. I edged it with Forest Moss Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured her in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used the Garden Twist, Skin Tones and Autumn Shades sets. I also used the gold from the Metallics set to colour the necklace. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and inked with Forest Moss while still in the die.

I ran a piece of White Sheer Wrinkle Edge Ribbon down the background and secured at the back. I then added a piece of White Crochet Ribbon on top. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Forest Moss.

I made a couple of flowers using Lipstick Red American Seam Binding as per Sue's Tutorial. I cut some leaves our of green card using the Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
