Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, I have a sneak peek today from tomorrow's shows. We're bringing back a few favourite Justrite stamps. Also, I have some new Couture Creations dies and some new colours of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Pastes.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I 'scribbled' some Summer Blue, Vintage Plum and Cosmic Pearl PVAs onto some Coconut White Card and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut it into 4 and matted it onto Perriwinkle Card.

This scribble PVA technique looks fab with lots of colour combos. You can see one of Sue's cards at the bottom of this post here.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Sunflowers 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 embossed through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. When you stamp and image, you can colour in whatever colour you like and using whatever medium you like. So, for this one, my sunflower is blue! I coloured in using Enchanted Gold, Tropic Blue and Violet Frost Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut a Couture Creations Elegant Motif die out out Perriwinkle Card and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I pressed a Clear Sparkler into Perfect Medium, added Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue around the edges.

Don't forget that the Creative Expressions Blog Hop is still going. Start here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  2. Hello Julia, another fabulous card, love the scribbled background, periwinkle blue is fast becoming my favourite shade. love the focal element with the dies, and as you say, when you stamp an image it can be any colour, so you have turned a sunflower into a cornflower. Thanks for the inspiration. Bx

    Love the periwinkle card and the PVA glue scribble technique. I've done this myself and cut it up but yet to make a topper suitable. But the mojo has had a holiday and now back in crafting form!
    Hope to check in to your shows sometime tomorrow - have a safe journey. Hopefully you will have Deano with you!!

  23. Lovely card Julia. The "scribble" technique needs to come with a health warning as it it very ADDITIVE. I have a pile of these backgrounds waiting to be made into cards, this despite making 8 cards already!
