Sneak Peek Part 2

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's sneak peek from tomorrow's show -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I stamped the Justrite Iron Works Vintage Labels 8 Background Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured some sections using Lapis Lavender Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Summer Shades Mica Spray Set.

I made myself some embossing powder by popping a little Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder into a little bag, adding some Lapis Lavender Mica Powder and giving it a good shake.

I cut a Justrite Just Typed Offset SVG file using the Cricut Explore. I stamped the typewriter image from the Justrite Just Typed Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium, added my custom made embossing powder and heat set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Antique Tags One Dies and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I pressed 4 Victorian Metal Corners into Perfect Medium, added my custom made embossing powder and heat set. I applied some CS Dries Clear Glue to the corners, left for a few minutes to become tacky and then added to the corners of my background.

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

Lots more ideas with this stamp set on the Justrite Stampers Blog here.

Thanks for stopping by.

  17. Hi Julia, A lovely card, I'm especially loving the gold embossed frame.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  18. Hi Julia

    Super card! I love the re coloured corners. I mix my own embossing colours too with micas or using other embossing colours or a mix if both. I love this background stamp and am getting a bit obsessed with these justrite background stamps! The typewriter is cool and although it has an svg file I don't have a suitable machine but I think it looks like an easy shape to cut out. The glue dots are the perfect finishing touch.

    Sky box is set. Hope the weather won't upset the signal again or it'll be a scramble for the computer!!!!
