Hi Bloggers.

It seems that this card has never had it's day on the blog -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the Justrite Burlap Background onto Coconut White Card using Stonewashed Adirondack. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked through the dye with Stonewashed Ink.

I stamped the garden tools onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using scissors. I coloured them in using Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky Distress Markers with a Water Brush. I added a little bow tied with Baker's Twine.

I stamped the seed packet from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Mustard Seed Distress Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 and inked through the die with Stonewashed Adirondack.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Phill Martin is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with some brand new stamps. I have some on order and they should arrive Wednesday/Thursday. I have set up a category on my website with the products I have in stock from the show here. There's 10% discount on these items till midnight tomorrow night (Monday 30th November) including the new stamps. Dispatch on orders containing the new stamps will be delayed until the stamps arrive.

Thanks for stopping by.

  18. Hello Julia.

    I think this is a lovely clean fresh Card. The Burlap background looks so different in this colouring. What a great idea for gardeners but could so easily be changed for any interest or hobby. Thanks for sharing.
