Miss You

Hi Bloggers.

I do not have shows today, there was an error in the scheduling on the Creative Expressions News Blog. My next shows on on Tuesday 1st July.

Here's today's card -

The background for this one took a while as I had to wait for each corner to dry before adding another. For each corner, I spread some Penny Copper Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste through one of the elements in the Decorative Elements Mask. Once all the corners were completed and dry, I inked around the edges with Caramel Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Sunflower Vintage Labels Five Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Five dies and inked through the die with Caramel Ink. I coloured in using Caramel, Butterscotch and Pesto Adirondack Dye Inks. I cut a Couture Creations Elegant Motif out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Caramel Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using a Justrite Vintage Label & Banner Die and inked through the die with Caramel Ink.

I tied a bow using Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Vintage Black Button.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  27. Hi Julia,
    Firstly - sorry although I looked at yesterday's card and thought how lovely it was I was interrupted and forgot to go back and leave a post! I loved it - the blue and white - your beautiful background - thanks for clear instructions on how to do it - and of course my favourite ribbon!
    Today's card is lovely too - I love the texture paste - it seems to work even for me!
    I really thought I'd lift the mask off to a mess but no it works every time.
    Thanks Julia for all your inspiration. Will look forward to seeing you on screen with Sue too. That should be fun!
    Love Myra
