Sending Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card.

For the background, I popped some Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto some card. I only peeled off half of the backing to begin with. I dusted the Elegance Border Mask with my Anti Static Bag and placed it along one edge of the sticky area. I added Sahara Gold Polished Silk Glitter, really rubbing it in so that it was smooth and wouldn't shed. I removed the mask and then added Rose Copper Polished Silk Glitter, again rubbing it into the adhesive. I peeled away the adhesive and repeated the process .

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Sympathy Vintage Labels Stamp Set using Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink and added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I did not heat set just yet. I stamped the frame around the image, again using Raisin Adirondack and added Clear Powder then heat set. I cut out using Justrite Vintage Label & Banner Dies and inked through the die with Caramel Adirondack Dye Ink.

I made a flower using Heartfelt Creations Tattered Blossoms Stamps and Dies, stamping with Raisin Adirondack and embossing with Clear Powder. I cut some leaves out of tan card using Spellbinders Foliage Die Set and inked through the die with Caramel Adirondack.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  29. H Julia, great card! The first time I tried the mask/glitter/sticky sheet technique after you showed it on tv and the products had arrived, i forgot to use the anti-static bag on the mask. Oh my... I ruined the card trying to remove the mask and it took ages to get all the sticky off the mask. LOL! You only do these things once!
    Hugs Annie
