Life is about creating yourself

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing another card made using one of my favourite layouts with lots of Spellbinder dies.

You can see other cards made using this layout here and here.

For the background, I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set all over a piece of white card using Jet Black Archival. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Folder - Regal. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I cut the largest of the Romantic Rectangles out of pink card and added the Metal Effect Mask at the embossing step. (if you do this, remember to keep the cutting edge of the die away from the mask.)

I cut the largest of the Splendid Circles out of black card and 2 corners from the Lattice Accents set (also in black). I cut 2 leaves from the Damask Accents set in pink and 2 in black.

I stamped the shoe from the stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the shoe in with Dark Cherry and Dusky Pink mica powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Dark Dusks Mica Spray Set (just pop a little powder on your craft sheet or tile and add a little water to create a paint). I cut the shoe out and added it to the die-cut Splendid Circle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Mechanical Handbags Stamp Set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut the sentiment up into lines and popped 2 of them on to the Romantic Rectangles die cut.

I made a flower out of felt (which I bought from Sam Poole) using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One. I made another flower out of pink card using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Two. My third flower was made out of black card using Spellbinders Sprial Blossom Three.

I assembled the card as shown.

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
