Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -


I started by creating a Pixie Powder background - I used Coconut White Card for this one and CS Pixie Powders in Aqua Lagoon and Aubergine Dream.

I cut the largest die from Sue Wilson's Swiss Background Die Set with the next sized die from Sue's Double Pierced Background Rectangles Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I trimmed a piece from my PP background and added to the the back of my die cut. I cut the next sized Double Pierced Background Rectangle out of Coconut White Card and added it to a Coconut White Card blank.

I cut dies #4 and #5 from Sue's Swiss Background out of Coconut White Card. I cut die #5 out of my PP background and glued the 2 die cuts together.

I cut the 2 larger dies together from the corner in Sue's Swiss Corner, Border & Tag Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the largest of the dies out of my PP background and glued the 2 pieces together. Once 100% dry, I popped the smallest die in the centre and cut to create a frame. I masked off the 'With' in the 'With Love' sentiment from the Woodware Blooming Heart Stamp Set, inked up with Cobalt Archival, removed the mask and stamped onto Coconut White Card. I added my frame using 3D Foam Pads.

No flowers on this one but you could easily add some.

New stock is due in this morning. I'm making some progress. You can find new Woodware stamps here, new Phill Martin Chalkboard Essentials Collection here and new John Lockwood stamps here. I have new CS Polished Silk Glitter, Glitter Jewels and Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powders to add plus some new Mini Stencils, MDF and Pop-ems (Greyboard) to match some of Lisa's Horton's new stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
