You are one of Life's Treasures

Hi Bloggers.

Tonight I'll be launching the Spellbinders Pick of the Day on Ideal World at 9pm. This is one of the demos I have prepped for the shows but as yet I still haven't decided which demo to start with! I have Dennice for both shows this evening. I haven't worked with her before so it will be interesting to see how the shows go.
For the background, I ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders A4 Garden Lattice M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked around the edges with Shell Pink Adirondack Dye Ink Pad using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut 2 corners out of grey card using the Spellbinders Botanical Swirls & Accents die set.

I cut 2 base corners out of grey card using the Spellbinders Cut, Fold & Tuck Octagon Strips & Accents die set. I then cut 2 of the corner Cut, Fold & Tucks from the same die set out of pink card. I folded and tucked the pink die cuts and then glued them in place over the grey bases. I cut 2 of the circular motifs from the same die set out of white card and inked through the die with the Shell Pink Ink. I folded and tucked them and added a 3mm White Pearl in the centre of each.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Whimsical Floral Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Shell Pink. I also cut the next size up of Labels 28 and again inked through the die with Shell Pink. I cut 2 x Scalloped Labels One out of pink card and at the emboss stage I added the Small Polka Dots Mask.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Self Adhesive Pearl Swirls, some 5mm White Pearls to the Octagon corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

Hope you can join me for some of the shows (full list in the left-hand sidebar).

Thanks for stopping by.
