Here Comes the Sun!

Well I hope so anyway!

Hi Bloggers.

I'm hoping that this bright card will bring us some sunshine today -

For the background, I inked through one of the elements in the Floral Elements Mask using Wild Honey Distress Ink in each corner of a piece of Coconut White Card. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations My Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Wild Honey.

I stamped the wreath from the Taylored Expressions Sunflower Wreath Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Majestic Circles and inked through the die with Wild Honey. I cut the 2 largest dies from the set and inked through the die with Wild Honey.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two and inked through the die with Wild Honey.

I made 2 flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon following Sue's Ribbon Flower Tutorial. I cut some leaves using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set.

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

Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post to go into the draw for the blog candy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  25. Stamping on and embossing on coloured card is one of the reason I bought the Ivory Cosmic Shimmmer powder (from a Sue show on C&C). Makes a nice alternate to white. Fingers crossed for the sunshine.

  30. Super card Julia. I love the colour and the circles are so 'Majestic' I will use these dies for sure. I didn't realise how great they looked. Must get that mask. I like the way you have used it for the corners. Great effect. Thanks Julia. Have got your tv shows marked on my calendar!! Maureen

  32. Hi Julia,
    I love every single thing about this card apart from the colour! Sorry! I really like that mask and will probably get it as its so versatile too. Really like the dies and stamped image. Your little roses are lovey. Will give it a whirl in another colour way. I know it's bright and cheery but not for me.
    Tried making a rose with the grosgrain ribbon cut in half as per your demo on C&C ! You were right the first one was rubbish! However I am quite pleased with the latest attempts.
    Thanks, Love Myra
