Get Well

Hi Bloggers.

I had a lovely day with the ladies at my workshop yesterday. My next workshops are on Saturday inYardley Gobion. John Glossop will be running a Powertex Workshop and Tracey Laughton will be running a Tropical Summer themed workshop with stamps by Lisa Horton and Woodware. You can still book on both workshops via my website here.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I cut the inner die from one of the corner dies from Sue Wilson's Indonesian Border and Corners Die Set out of Coconut White Card twice and the inner die from the border once. I popped a piece of CE Double Sided Self -Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I peeled away the other backing sheet and added to the back of my background. I added CS Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes, removing the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I matted onto Gold Mirror Card and then onto another piece of Coconut White.


I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up the CE Deco Rose Burst Stamp. I stamped it onto Coconut White Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped image. I added CS Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I cut the image out using the largest die from Sue's Java Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the CE Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Dollar Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die from the Java Die Set.

I cut die #4 from Sue's Sumatra Die Set out of Gold Mirror Card and die #5 from the same set out of Silver Mirror Card.

I completed my card by edging my background and my sentiment with CS Glue and adding CS Iced Crystal Glitter Jewels.

  2. Morning Julia, now this card is super duper, it is my kind of card, infact I was at my craft group yesterday and we used these dies on a card that we made, so I know exactly where they are filed away and can try this one.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  21. I just love the two techniques you have used here, firstly the background (one of which I have made today) and then stamping the image with flake and flitter glue, which I have yet to do, but will as I just love it....thank you Julia...a truly stunning card, thank you...luv Ursula xx

  23. Julia this is a stunning and elegant card.
    I love the upper corners and the strip along the bottom, very unusual but looks perfect.
    I also really like the subtle colour from those gilding flakes.
