Hi Bloggers.

A break from Cars today as the lovely Christine Emberson is due on Create & Craft with some Spellbinders shows featuring some new dies. So, I'm sharing a simple card featuring the new Homespun set from Spellbinders.

The backing paper is My Mind's Eye Lost and Found. I inked around the edges of it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Peeled Paint. I cut the basket out of Kraftcore and carefully sanded a little to reveal the core. I cut the little flowers out of white card and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I cut the little leaves out of felt that I got from Sam Poole here.

I stamped the 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 just the centre die of one of the Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two dies. I inked through the die with Peeled Paint. I then cut the tag frame using both sections of the die pair.

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

I'll share another Homespun card tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.
