Thank You So Much

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at Phill Martin's new Store yesterday. This morning I will be posting all outstanding website orders and then starting prep for my next One Day Special which is on Hochanda on December 13th.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped the TST Leaves Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled Straw Yellow and Burnt Orange CS Pixie Powders over and then spritzed with water. I removed the mask and put my background aside to dry.

I spritzed another piece of Watercolour Card with water and sprinkled over the same 2 Pixie Powders and put aside to dry.

Once my mask background was dry. I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue's Maldives Die Set. I cut dies #3 and #4 together out of Coconut White Card and die #4 out of my PP background.

I cut the solid large leaf from Sue's Autumn Leaf Trio out of my PP background twice and the corresponding open leaf die from the same set out of Coconut White Card twice.

I made a flower out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Cape Daisy Die Set, added a centre cut for my PP background and a smaller centre cut from Coconut White Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners of the frame and the centre of the frame.

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

  19. Love the leaves effect and the pixie powders are gorgeous colours. Many thanks.

  20. ... and in-between all that. you are getting organised for Christmas. I almost bought the leaf ODS, but decided to put in on hold (as I did not really want the zentangle leaf stamps) with the remaining shadow box dies I want. Instead I paid the first instalment on a crafty weekend away in June. Trying to get sorted for coming to Yardley for the Lisa and Leonie workshops - still on the fence about the powertex one, so you are not getting rid of me. Sorry could not get across to Nottingham on Sunday - Family problems.

  21. Good Morning Julia, wow that is just stunning I hope you enjoyed your day yesterday but I expect it was a tiring one. hugs Shirleyxxxxx
