Lots of Love

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your comments and emails yesterday. I really enjoyed the shows with Leonie - love her to bits!

Here's a demo card from the 2nd show -

For the background, I dusted a pice of Milk Card with my anti-static bag. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Floral Flourishes Background with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I then dusted Orange Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Sunset Mica Spray Set all over the stamped areas. I lightly wiped away the excess with a dry wetwipe, misted with a little water and  heat set. Then, again with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Autumn Damask Background. I made sure the ink was dry and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Begonia and the 'BEGONIA' stamp from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Yellow Ultra and Orange Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Sunset Mica Spray Set and Lime Twist Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut the largest 2 dies from the Spellbinders Adorning Squares Die Set out of Apricot Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a Spellbinders Diamond Effects out of Apricot Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Good morning Julia,
    I must try that background technique it looks fantastic. I enjoyed your shows yesterday, is your host really that scattered or just an act. Sometimes I am not sure, but you do keep her back on track. I did laugh when you were trying to give her clues in the first show. The cards were fab and you were delightful as always. Are you ever going to carry the anti static bags? Thanks as always for sharing your talents and joy.

  2. Hi Julia, shows were fab, had quite a few laughs with you and Leonie, loved the demos and this card is just superb. Bx

  9. Morning Julia, Just noticed that Sue is back at No 1 in the Crafty Blogs, yippee.
    I loved this card when I saw you demo it yesterday, the background is stunning, and was fantastic to watch you compile it. The begonia stamp is gorgeous, and colouring with mica powders is so effective, I really must get out my mica powders and use them again. Thank you for the inspiration and your samples were gorgeous.
