Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running a workshop locally today with Pixie Powders and Gilding Polishes - should be fun!

Here's today's card -


I started by cutting both dies in the Spellbinders Deco Lux Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I inked through the die with CS Crimson Kiss Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the largest die only out of Black Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Spellbinders Fairmont Decorative Elements and inked through the die with Crimson Kiss. I cut a Spellbinders Fairmont Labels die out of Black Card. I cut the middle die in the Fairmont Decorative Elements Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the corresponding die from the Fairmont Labels Set out of Black Card. I stacked all these die cuts up on top of the Deco Lux background using 3d Foam.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

My latest post on the Spellbinders Blog has been published. You can view it here. It would be lovely if you could pop by and leave a comment.

 Thanks for stopping by.
