Congrats

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This card has been made entirely from Coconut White Card and CS Bronze Blush Pixie Powder used in a variety of ways (oh and just a teeny bit of Copper Kettle CS Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder). Now, I know the colours don't match exactly but I thought it was cool to show several techniques with just 1 pot of Pixie Powder.

For the background, I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti-Static Bag and then stamping the Justrite Blooming Vines Background using Clear Perfect Medium. I sprinkled some CS Bronze Blush Pixie Powder over it and spread the powder around. I removed the excess powder using a dry wet wipe and then spritzed with water to make the colour pop.

I repeated the process with an image from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set. I cut out using Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles and cut a mat with the larger circle in the set.

I made a frame using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess.

I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with water and sprinkled with Bronze Blush Pixie Powder. I put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut a pair of leaves using Sue's Maidenhair Fern Die Set.

I popped a little Bronze Blush Pixie Powder into a palette. I added quite alot of water to make a wash and painted onto a piece of Coconut White Card. Once dry, I dusted with my Anti-Static Bag and stamped 1A from the Justrite Multi-Step Poppies Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Copper Kettle Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut out using scissors and added to my leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Meadow Circles Set in the same way as the background. I cut it out using a die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set and cut a mat from the same die set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

The September release of Sue Wilson dies is out this week. I am expecting stock on Wednesday or Thursday. You can see them here and place your pre-orders. I have already discounted the dies by at least 10% so you will see the reduction on each die set. I will send them out as soon as I have them.

The winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 2nd September is..................

  24. Julia this is gorgeous and i love the differnt effects you
    get from that beautiful stamp.
    It has started to make me look at stamps differently and get me out of the idea i have to use a ink pad on them.
