One Shoe Can Change Your Life

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another card made using the Creative Expressions Sole Creations Stamp Set.

The background is made from 2 pieces of Coconut White Card. I put one piece inside the Creative Expressions Fauna Embossing Powder and the other piece inside the Couture Creations Damask Embossing Folder and then ran them through the Grand Calibur. I joined them together by gluing them (with Cosmic Shimmer Glue) to a piece of lavender card. I wrapped some White Crochet Ribbon and then some Mauve Rose American Seam Binding around the join.

I stamped the image using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six and inked through the die with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Milled Lavender.

I tied a bow using Lavender Sheer Dots Ribbon. I made a flower using a Craft Sheet length of the Mauve Rose American Seam Binding and the White Crochet Ribbon (cut in half lengthways) and added it to my bow.  I also added a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and some 5mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlecent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Morning Julia, Stunning card, the soft colours are gorgeous and I have to have the shoe stamps, they are beautiful, also the matting basics are going on my 'wish list' too. The 'piece de resistance' is the flower made using the seam binding and lace, simply gorgeous, not forgetting the dotty ribbon, one of my favourites.
