Elegant Corners Labels Four Background

Hi Bloggers.

Just need to say first - Lydia, I do need your address or I can't send you your prize!

I thought I'd share 2 cards made with the Justrite Elegant Corners Labels Four Background Stamp. Here's the first one -

 For the background, I stamped the background stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. Then I painted some Pastel Aqua and Pastel Lilac from the Cosmic Shimmer Pastels Watercolour Set over the top. The paint doesn't stick to the embossed areas.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Special Delivery Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Four, positioning the sentiment towards the top right-hand side. I inked through the die with Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord Dustress Inks. I stamped the little booties from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out and coloured them with the Pastel Aqua and Pastel Lilac Watercolours.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Crystal Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Pearl PVA around the edges.

Here's the second card -

I stamped the background using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I added a few 3mm White Pearls as shown.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Power. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 4 and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany. I cut a larger Labels 4 out of Rich Red Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peak from Saturday's shows.

Thanks for stopping by.

  23. Hello ladies, Wattsonettes, Im sure I posted here earlier, strange, dont think I said anything to offend that's not my nature : / could it be I mentioned Crafters Companion I wonder ? : 0
    I only said how great they are to boost confidence for anxious stampers like myself.
    Didnt say anything bad about todays cards as I love both and just my cup of tea (although I drink coffee) !
    Oh dear, now that's worried me big time.

  26. Happy Birthday Patricia. YES I DO remember typing that in my first entry ! Did my brain let me down that much that I didn't click 'publish' ? I also asked all Wattsonettes not to forget the sausage rolls ready for Patricia's birthday party ! Weird !
    Lancashire (what happened Steph) !

  27. Two gorgeous cards. Any new mum would be over the moon with the new baby card and the second one would certainly be treasured by the recipient too. x

  28. Beautiful cards. I am not confident in stamping always seem to make a mess but these cards are making me think of having a go again. Maybe in the New Year when the rush of Christmas has passed. I know it will say anonymous as its the only way that my comments will publish. Anyway I'm Helen VofG

  29. Hi Julia. Two beautiful cards, I love both of them. Great colours and Like Annie I wouldn't have thought to use these stamps on a baby card. I will now (once I get the stamps ) ! Take care
