Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, today I'm sharing sneak peekfrom tomorrow's shows on Create & Craft. The shows are packed with lots of Justrite Stamps and dies and a few Spellbinders Dies all at sale prices! Different goodies on each show so be sure to check the Create & Craft website to see what's on offer on both shows before you checkout your basket.

This gorgeous background stamp from Justrite is called Fragrant Garden. I stamped it twice onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Phill Martin's Graceful Blue Embossing Powder. I removed the excess mica with a dry wet wipe. I trimmed the larger one with my trimmer and the smaller one I cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A (you could use a trimmer again if you don't have the die set). I mounted the smaller one on top of the larger one using 3d foam.

I sprayed a piece of White Tulle with Graceful Blue Ink Spray Mist. The tulle takes the colour beautifully but you can't really see it till you scrunch it up. You do need to let it dry naturally though as a heat gun will melt it. So, once dry, I scrunched up the tulle and tied a knot in the centre. I trimmed the ends a little. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders Botanical Swirls & Accents Die Set and rubbed Graceful Blue Gilding Wax over. I cut 2 sizes of Sue's Delicate Daisies - Open Petals twice out of Coconut White Card and offset them and stacked them to make a flower. I added a Small Circle Dazzler to the centre.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Graceful Blue PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
