Wishing You Happiness

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you are enjoying the Pick of the Week shows.

Today's card features some more of my favourite dies. Quite a lot of cutting and inking on this one. Hopefully I will get to demo it before they sell out.

I stamped my sentiment from the Creative Expressions Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the new Spellbinders Asian Motifs dies and inked through the die with Dried Marigold Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut another of the same shape and 2 of the larger motifs from the same set. I inked with Dried Marigold on all of them.

For the background I ran a piece of Coconut White card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Radiant Embossing Folder (I really like that one). I popped it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked around the edges with Dried Marigold using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut 4 lots of of corners and 4 lots of little accents from the Asian Accents die set and 4 lots of small motifs from the Venetian Motifs die set. I inked through the die on all of them with Dried Marigold.

I tied a double bow out of white silky crush ribbon and added a medium Creative Expressions Dazzler.

I would have added a couple of stick pins but there are none on the show.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl (White).

I think this might make a good wedding card, what do you think?

4 shows today starting at 8am.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Hi Julia, loved the shows, ordered the venetian/blossom/papillon combo first thing yesterday morning. (I checked out what they were on the spellbinders website as C&C did not have the images up yet) Just wished they gave you more time with the demos because you explain so clearly. Bx

  11. Morning Julia, well its a shame the POTW selling so fast as we dont get to see so many of your demos!
    I love this card, great colour choice and its looks elegant, so worth the time cutting and inking.
    Yippee the sun is shining!

  12. Hi Julia, I am on holiday at the moment and cannot watch your demos but have seen the show this morning and looks like pots will sell out. Does this mean no more demos. Have recorded some of yesterday's shows and will catch up when I get home. Love this card.

  19. Hi Julia - this is a gorgeous card, those dies are really beautiful. I'm watching the shows and recording them to save for later - am amazed at how much has been sold - reckon Hels will be singing and tapdancing for her shows on Monday!!!

  20. Hi Julia, this card is stunning and the dried marigold colour is my second favourite next to teal. Would definitely make a lovely wedding card. Unfortunately had a problem with my order for the POTW and was not impressed with C&C's customer service so cancelled. Will now have to be patient and wait for them to come on to the market.

    Well done you with the shows you have done a fantastic job. Looking forward to your shows tomorrow. Christine H xx

  21. This is a beautiful card Julia and everything goes so well together. Yes i agree it would make a lovely wedding card
