Vintage Perfume Bottle

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Sorry about the photo, Mirror Card is really hard to photograph - I had a blue top on that day - lol!

I started by cutting die #7 from Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B out of Gold Mirror Card. I removed the card from the die and added die #5 from Sue's Indonesian Background Die Set. I cut die #7 from the Double Pierced Squares Set B out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and glued the 2 dies cuts together. I put aside so that the glue would dry.

Meanwhile, I cut both dies from Sue's Rose Spray Corners Die Set out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card twice. I added CS Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to them. I added them to a piece of Coconut White Card. I matted onto Gold Mirror Card, Midnight Blue Pearl Card and another piece of Coconut White Card.

Going back to my Indonesian Background, I added die #4 from the set and cut to create the open centre of the frame.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the CE Dotted Daisies Embossing Folder. I added Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to the embossed card. I added 2mm Foam Tape to my frame and popped on top of my embossed and gilded card. I glued this to my background.

I selected one of the designs from Sue's Vintage Perfume Bottles Die Set. I cut the outside die only out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and both dies out of Gold Mirror Card. I glued both die cuts together and added them inside my frame using Foam Tape.

Jane Gill is on Hochanda today with part one of her Woodware Christmas 2017 stamps. She has shows at 11am, 3pm and 7pm. I hope you can tune in - I will be watching. I love the Christmas Woodware stamps. I'm offering 10% discount on items from the shows that I have on my website. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tonight or while stocks last.

My next workshop locally is on Saturday 22nd July. Projects are set now -

Before that, I have 2 workshops at CE HQ in Kettering on 12th and 19th July. They're on Stained Glass Window Techniques. There are 5 Stained Glass Window Dies now and we will be working with all of them. The 12th is full and there are only 3 spaces available on 19th so if you're interested, be quick, I won't be repeating this one again. You can book via my website here.

  8. Hi Julia
    A beautiful card. I've set the recorder for Jane's shows, I am loving the Woodware stamps. I've just discovered that Yardley Gobion isn't a million miles from my daughter's home in Bugbrooke, so maybe I'll be able to combine a visit to her with a workshop some day!
