All change!

Hi Bloggers.

I'm afraid my stamping show on June 25th has been postponed till some time in July. Sam's show on 18th June has been cancelled so she's now doing her show on 25th instead which is just fine because it looks like I'm going to be helping Sue out with some of her Spellbinders shows next Friday (22nd). I don't know times yet but I'll update the details in the sidebar as soon as I know.

Today I'm sharing another card I've made for the Ethel & Murray stamping shows. Hopefully, this will appeal to more people than the post on Monday did as it's a great man card.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Fore Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using a selection of Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using the Coffee Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut the sentiment and the mats out using Spellbinders Labels Four and Labels Four Small. I inked the sentiment with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam while still in the die.

I cut a border from some Foundations Blue Dot and Dash Paper using Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Bracket. I cut an insert into the border using the Edgeabilities Classic Ric Rac. The background paper is also a Foundations Dot and Dash Paper but is the reverse side.

I assembled the card as shown adding a few buttons from my stash.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. Great British humour is needed in much bigger doses these days, and these stamps are just right. Even your colour choice is really bright and cheery, just love it.
