Don't Walk Dance

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks very much for all your emails and comments on the shows yesterday. Glad you like the new stamps as much as I do. I've popped photos of all the samples on my facebook page here.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started with the stamp in my hand, stamping Phill Martin's Vintage Sheet Music Background randomly using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I repeated the process with Phill Martin's Vintage Script Background using Iced Spruce Distress Ink. I then added the 'Let's Dance' from the Step by Step Sentiment Set using Peacock Feathers. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Peacock Feathers. I rubbed Patina Gilding Wax all over the embossed surface. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Quick Step Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers. I cut a Spellbinders Diamon Effects Die out of Teal Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Sentiment Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Black Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Small and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers. I cut a Spellbinders Square Swatches Die out of Teal Card.

 I made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon and cut a couple of leaves out of Teal Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Circle Dazzler in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you so much for the two brilliant shows yesterday, You and Dean are a class act just so funny. I love the way you take back control, of course the demo's are brilliant just like the cards.

    Yes A Class Act - Julia and Dean - very entertaining. Loved the shows and must decide which dancers to get. I started an order and had to leave my basket!! The jewels, the Argentine Tango set - what a great idea to do. Love it all but must restrain myself! Gorgeous samples and brilliant demos.

  12. Hi Julia. I tried to resist but ended up buying the stamps. I haven't watched any of Strictly yet but the Argentine Tango is my favourite dance. SueL x

  13. Morning Julia, I've just been watching Flavia and Vincent dancing the Argentine Tango on 'Lorraine', they were promoting their new show, I absolutely adore watching Strictly and the professionals are 'magnificent'. You have definitely got a winner with these 'dancer' stamps, another gorgeous card today.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
