Sending my Thanks

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your emails and comments yesterday - much appreciated as always. Glad you loved the new products.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Quilted Flower Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I spritzed a piece of card with Purple Orchid and Evergreen Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist. Once dry, I popped the Random Fleur de Lys Mask on top. I spread some Lilac Blush Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste across the centre and them some Sea Green top and bottom. I removed the mask and set aside to dry. Once dry, I chopped it into 3 sections and matted onto some Mauve Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Gratitudes Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Granada Die Set (Spanish Collection) and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut the 2 largest dies together from the Galicia Die Set (Spanish Collection) out of Mauve Card and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Silver Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Lavender Dazzler.

 I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and I pierced around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  1. Hello Julia, this card is really beautiful, love the colours. Loved the shows. I ordered one of the mask sets from the show, which has the fleur de lis, rope frame and swoosh, as I really wanted the rope frame. Will have to hold off for a while buying the multi colour sets of paste. Thanks for the fab demos of how to use the paste, paints and sprays. Bx

  15. Loved the products and the textured pastes are on my Need List I have a few of Ali's masks which I don't use as often as I should but your blog really inspires me to have a go I like the fact that we can use the masks with the paste and not have to invest in brass stencils etc Take care

  29. Hi Julia,
    I sat down and watched both Shows last night! I learned such a lot - great idea to concentrate on some of the many uses for the new products. The new paints are beautiful but had all sold out by the time I watched. I loved the texture paste and so glad I ordered a pot of that from your store. I sat and scribbled into my little notebook! Just don't set me an exam on what I've learned, please ,ha ha!
    I love today's card , love everything about it .
    Hope you feeling a bit better today.
    Thanks once again, love Myra .
