Blogger was playing up today so my post did not go up at 6am as usual. Sorry about that!
I'm scheduled to do shows on Create & Craft today at 12noon and 6pm. I'm really looking forward to the shows as they've got lots of girly stuff in them. Just a heads up on that - I've selected a couple of gorgeous ribbon packs which are unlikely to last beyond the first hour!
Today I'm sharing a card featuring Kat from the Fashionista Best Friends Stamp Set.
For the background, I ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Alora Embossing Folder. This is not a repeating pattern but it is quite a busy one so it is possible to extend the background as I have done here without it being too visible. I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans 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 Kat in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I cut her out using Spellbinders Spellbinders Labels Fourteen. I inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I cut the largest of the Fancy Postage Edge dies out of Foundations Floral Dream Paper. I inked through the die with Faded Jeans and threaded some Baker's Twine from the Primary Set through the holes.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.
I tied a bow using Light Blue Ruffle Edged Ribbon. I added a button and a Dazzler in one of the new colours (coming soon) to the centre of my bow. I added a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent in Summer Blue around the edges.
Hope you can join me later.
Thanks for stopping by.
