Simply Fabulous Again

Hi Bloggers,

Today I have another card made using the Creative Expressions Stylish Ladies Stamp Set.

I stamped the image using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks in Umber, Marigold, Scarlet Flame and Pearl Shine. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two. I inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink while still in the die. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Labels Three out of Burgundy card for a mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Damask Accents. I inked with Aged Mahogany while still in the die.

I cut various leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Set and some from the Damask Accents Set. I cut them from Burgundy card and white card. I inked through the die with Aged Mahogany on the white ones.

I made 2 flowers from the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder as shown in the video tutorial in this post. I used Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to colour the flowers. I misted them with Cosmic Shimmer Antique Rose Vintage Mist - I added rather a lot!

For the background, I ran a piece of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
