Keys

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your emails and comments yesterday. Glad you enjoyed the shows. Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Script Key Background twice using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Imade sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Joe's Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord.

I cut a narrow strip of card and stamped the new Creative Expressions Floral Background twice using Dusty Concord. The join is hidden behind the image panel.

I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Creations Dahlia Cluster Stamp Set onto some Heather Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Purple Violet from the Summer Fayre Set and Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur de Lys Rectangles and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

 I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Violet Dazzler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  4. Morning Julia, Fabulous shows yesterday, especially the one with Steph where you got the 'Certificate', and we had lots of tips and techniques during your demo's, which were brilliant. Lets hope you get your 'roast lamb dinner' from Nigel on the 26th, we will wait and see haha !!
    I love this card, my favourite colour so can't go wrong, I adore the background stamp, so useful as you can use 'as is' or cut up after stamping, so versatile. I love the dahlia stamps, and there is so much detail they can easily be re-stamped and decoupaged, gorgeous.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
