Thank you so much for your support over the weekend on the POTW shows and here on the blog. It's much appreciated. It's good to know that you love the new dies as much as I do. Hels Sheridan takes over today with her first show at 3pm with Dawn. Hels made some of the samples that have been shown and the lovely decorations that were made using the Grand dies that were in the show. For those who asked you can access her blog from my right-hand sidebar. You will also find Sue Wilson's, Christine Emberson's and Sam Poole's blog there.
Here's something a bit different from your Spellbinders Pick of the Week.
I started with a piece of Milk card. I popped the Grid Mask on top at a jaunty angle and ran it through the Grand Calibur. I removed the mask and inked all over with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Time Flies Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and inked with Black Soot while still in the die.
I cut a mustache out of black card using the Spellbinders Dear Old Dad die set and added it to the top of the sentiment panel. I cut the pocket out of Kraftcore again from the Dear Old Dad Die Set. At the emboss stage I added the Metal Effect Mask. I sanded it to reveal some of the core.
I stamped the pocket watch from the same stamp set onto Grungepaper using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out and tied some black Baker's Twine from the Primary Set around the top.
I assembled the card as shown and added a Key Charm (secured with Cosmic Shimmer Glue) and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Hope you like the card. I've really grown to like the Dear Old Dad die set. Here's another simple card made with it -
Thanks for stopping by.
