Hope You Have Bags of Fun

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demonstrating at Melbicks Garden Centre, Coleshill today at their Craft Event. If you live locally, please pop by. I'll be doing the same thing at Percy Throwers Garden Centre, Shrewsbury tomorrow.

Here's today's card -

For the background I just inked through the Ivy Mask with Dried Marigold Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. Job done!

I stamped the bag from the Bags of Style Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in the top section with Cosmic Shimmer Umber Matt Drawing Ink from the Autumn Shades Set and Cosmic Shimmer Copper Mica Powder from the Metallics Set. I stamped the bag again onto some paper from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I cut the bottom section out and glued it to the original image using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I stamped the sentiment, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies (using that set a lot!) and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I made a flower using the Teresa Collins Paper. I stamped a couple of leaves from the Heartfelt Creations Open Leaf Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I brushed some Copper Mica Powder over and used a dry wetwipe to remove the excess. I spritzed with water and dried with my heat tool to set. I cut the leaves out using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a few White Pearls in a couple of the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Don't forget to catch Sue's Pick of the Weekend Shows again today.

Thanks for stopping by.
