I'm due on Create & Craft today at 8am, 1pm and 6pm with the Christmas dies that Sue and I demoed last Wednesday and Thursday. As I type this (Monday evening), I'm listening to Gonna Make You a Star by David Essex. I just had to download it after the shows with Loen last Thursday. I also downloaded Sugar Baby Love by the Rubettes - I was amazed at how many of their songs were on iTunes.
Today's card is from the shows with the Card Creator Dies a couple of weeks ago.
Creative Expressions Floral Silhouette Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I stamped it first on to some paper and then onto the card to lighten the image. I then stamped a little butterfly from the Creative Expressions Button Florals stamp set using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I popped this through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.
I stamped the Tulips from the Floral Silhouette Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die using Victorian Velvet and Cut n Dry Foam. I cut a frame out of Foundations Dot and Dash Paper using a Fancy Postage Edge die and a larger Matting Basics die than the one used to cut out the tulips.
key charm and a button with some Pastel Baker's Twine tied through it. I stamped the sentiment from the Button Florals Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a small Fancy Ribbon Threader die and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.
Hope you can watch the shows today. Please email in if you can. If I look a bit haggered it's because I'll have been up since 4.30am!
Thanks for stopping by.
