Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 8am (another early start!) and 3pm. Hope you can join me.I have 2 new colours of Gilding Flakes on the shows - Verdigris and Red Speckle. Yummy!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Oregano Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

For the bottom panel I dabbed some Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue onto one of the leaf stamps from the Autumn Leaves Stamp Set and stamped at an angle. I did this a couple of times and then cleaned my stamp with a Grime Boss. The glue remains tacky until you put something on it so you have planty of time. I rubbed some new Verdigris Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes over, removing the excess with a piece of Ranger Rubit Scrubit. I then stamped another image from the same stamp set in the gaps with Jet Black Archival. I edged the panel with some Oregano Ink.

I stamped the handbag from the Bags of Style Stamp Set using the Flake & Glitter Glue, cleaned my stamp and added the Verdigris Flakes to the image. I cut it out using Spellbinders Standard Cicles Large and inked through the die with Oregano. The Doily Die in the background is unfortunately not available but there are some other lovely dies on the show from Couture Creations.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bags of Style Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges and Oregano.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of 5mm Black Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Golden Green around the edges.

See you later!

Thanks for stopping by.
