Thanks for all your comments about Sunday's shows. They really were fun especially the Toolshed with Dean - he's so lovely.
A few of you asked about the metal sheets yesterday and wanted to know if would be getting them in my Amazon Store. Well, the packs that were on the show are currently out of stock at CE HQ but I have ordered some of the 4" x 4" packs which have 8 sheets in them - they should be here later this week. I have also ordered some of the 2012 Spellbinders Holiday Tree plus more of the Christmas Bauble, Floral Silhouette, Dream Cars and Classic Cars stamp sets. I will let you know when they're in my store
Here's a really simple, quick and easy card from Sunday's shows.
I wanted a really clean monochrome look to this card so there's no inking through the dies or edging the background with Distress Ink.
So, the background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I cut a border out of black card using the Moroccan Accents die set and glued it down the right-hand side. I ran a piece of 6mm Super Sticky Tape down alongside the border and ruffled some American Seam Binding in Blue White down it.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Floral Silhouette Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I did not emboss it. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics A. I cut out the largest of the Fancy Postage Edge dies out of black card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival - again, I did not emboss it. I cut it out using a die from the Moroccan Accents die set. I cut another of the same die out of black card. I trimmed off the fancy parts and used them as a shadow behind the sentiment off-setting them slightly.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
