Love You

Hi Bloggers.

Just before I share today's card, I just wanted to let you know that I have re-ordered the stamps that have sold out from Sunday's shows. Hopefully, they will be here in a couple of days. I've also re-ordered the Dazzler Settings.

Don't forget that there's only a couple of days left to grab yourself a bargain in the sales items in my Amazon Store. For full details, please see this post

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped my tan mat onto my base plate. I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my anti static bag and placed it dusted side up on my tan mat. I inked up the Lattice Mask with Perfect Medium and placed it inked side down on top of the dusted card. I added the pink embossing plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern. I added Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder tapped off the excess and heat set.

I stamped the Heart & Roses Stamp using Perfect Medium and added Arctic Lake Lustre Powder. I added the sentiment from the Justrite Grateful Hearts Clear Stamp Set and heat set the lot. I cut out using Spellbinders decorative Labels 22 and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I made a scrunched up flower using Spellbinders Blossom 5 (sorry I did not get chance to demo this on Sunday). I stamped 2 leaf sprays from the Heartfelt Creations Closed Leaf Stamp Set using Faded Jeans and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia, this card is really beautiful, love the blue and white colour combo. Makes a nice difference for a valentines card, rather than the traditional red. Bx

  6. Morning Julia, A truly gorgeous card, lovely and fresh colours, I am loving the mask and embossing powder background, what a fabulous effect that gives, thank you for the sandwich process for that technique. I really need to try that technique along with the faux letterpress technique, as I love the effect they give.
    Have a lovely day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  7. Hi Julia very pretty card, lovely background, you're getting famous for. Thanks for covering sandwich techniques, I really love the leaves think they need to go on my wish list as they would be so useful for lots of projects x

  8. Hi Julia, What a stunning Card I really Love the Beautiful Stamp, and The Fantastic Background, also The Beautiful Flower, do you ever run out of ideas, I sit here for ages thinking right where do I start!!!
    Take Care

  9. Great colours lovely card xx hazel

  10. Hi Julia
    Another fabulous card and background. I love the background and wish I could get the hang of it. Please please please do a demo using this technique as I have only ended up with a mess. I tried this technique using the snowflake mask and seemed to get a shadow. the flower is also beautiful. or, maybe you already have done a demo of this on Sunday. I skipped though a bit of Sunday's show, but apart from Dawn Bibby talking over you and not allowing you to get a word in edge ways, I couldn't see any reason not to watch the 5.00 show. I just skipped her bits and went to the main feature(which was you Julia).

  11. Morning Julia - I love this card and I think the stamped image is perfect. Thanks Helen xx

  19. Morning Julia, a very beautiful card and the blue and white
    is stunning and I really love the flowers scrunched up like that
    a lot of the dies work well this way. Managed to watch your shows

    Dawn wasn't to bad I'm getting a bit more tolerant with her.

  22. Hi Julia,
    I am earlier to day as not rushing around so much! I just love today's card! It is
    beautiful. I love blue and white anyway but the background is terrific.Thank you
    for explaining the sandwich layers and technique for that so well. It really does help a lot. Will watch out for the settings ,did order them but it would be nice to get them without more dazzlers as I have quite a lot.
    Thanks again,
    Love, Myra
