A Demo Card from Today's Shows

Hi Bloggers.

This is hopefully the first card that I'll be demonstrating today in the 10am show on Create & Craft -

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Beautiful Ladies stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

I coloured the image using Eco Green Paris Trunk Dye Ink Pads - Blotter, Parchment, Yellow Damasque, Pink Taffeta and Garnet. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Mica Powder to the Garnet Ink. I mounted the image panel onto some white card which had been inked around the edges with the Pink Taffeta Ink using Cut & Dry Foam.

The sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments stamp set. Again it was stamped using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three and inked with the Pink Taffeta while still in the die. I made a faux nestie with some white card that I had inked with the Pink Taffeta.

I ran a piece of white card through my Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I had to run it through a second time as the card was bigger than the folder. I inked around the edges with the Pink Taffeta.

I ran a second piece of white card through the Floral folder and inked up 8 flowers and cut them out. I used these to make my flowers (tune in to see how).

I cut some leaves out of green card using the Spellbinders Foliage die set and assembled the card as shown.

Do hope you can join me today. My shows are at 10am with Joanne and 6pm with Leonie. I also have a 20 minutes slot on the Dawn Bibby & Friends show at 2pm. It's being presented by Leonie this week as Dawn is away - I believe Dean is going to be there too mixing it up a little I expect!

Hope you enjoy the shows if you get chance to watch.

Thanks for dropping by.
