Show date change and a sample card

Hi Bloggers,

Apologies for lack of posts recently - I've been knee deep in making samples for the Tatty Button TV Show coming up on Create & Craft soon.

Unfortunately, the shows next Tuesday have been cancelled and have been re-scheduled for the following Tuesday (6th Dec) 2pm till 4pm with Dawn Bibby. I'm not sure if I will also be doing the 7pm show or not.

Today I thought I'd share one of the samples I've made for the show -

I've used the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Christmas Bauble stamp. The stamp comes already mounted onto Umount and has been cut out for you too so you're ready to go straight away. I stamped the image with Jet Black Archival and quickly embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image using a mix of matt and mica Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks.

The letters are cut from the Wendie Rhodes Wacky Font Alphabet templates and have been stamped using the Creative Expressions background stamp Scattered Words. The letters have been edged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

The background has been created using the Couture Creations Drink Me embossing folder and has been edged with Tumbled Glass.

I made a few snowflakes using the Spellbinders Create-A-Flake die set, again inking through the die with Tumbled Glass.

I dyed some Ivory Vintage Ribbon with Tumbled Glass, tied a bow and added it to the top of the bauble.

I'm sharing this card with my friends at Make It Monday

Hope you like the card.

Please pop back again tomorrow when I'll be sharing another sample card.

Thanks for stopping by.
