Kick up Your Heels

Hi Bloggers.

Happy Christmas to you all - I hope you're having a lovely day. I'm off to my Mom & Dad's house today for a couple of days so relying on Blogger to schedule posts for me.

I have a few more cards from the shoes/handbags/corsets/perfume show I did at the end of November. This one is a very simple one - the embossing folder does most of the work.

So, the background is a piece of Coconut White Card popped inside the Couture Creations Timeless Embossing Folder and run through the Grand Calibur. I inked around the edges with Poppy Paris Trunk Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of Blue White American Seam Binding around the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions If the Shoe Fits .... Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and inked through the die with Poppy ink.

I stamped the shoe from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival, embossed with clear powder and coloured it in using Poppy and Yellow Damasque Dye Inks. I cut it out with scissors and then went around the edges with a black marker pen to hide any white bits.

I stamped the hat from the Creative Expressions Handbags Galore Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. Again, I coloured in using Poppy and Yellow Damasque ink, cut out and went around edges with black pen.

I assembled the card as shown adding a bow made from 2 lengths of Blue White American Seam Binding and a Light Brown Dazzler, some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

If you're looking to buy the stamp sets, I don't have any in my Amazon Store but Sam Poole has them here.

Thanks for stopping by.
