Wishing You Happiness

Hi Bloggers.

This is another of the demos that I didn't quite finish on Monday.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti-Static Bag. I randomly stamped one of the butterflies from the Creative Expressions Floral Silhouette Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I stamped a few and then added the Olympic Gold Lustre Embossing Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics & Darks Set. I continued stamping a few and adding powder until the whole area was covered and then heat set. I wiped away the excess mica with a dry wet-wipe. I popped the piece through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Elite M-Bossabilities Folder and then inked around the edges with Butterscotch Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti-Static Bag and stamped the main image from the same stamp set again using the Perfect Medium and embossed with the Olympic Gold Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge Die and inked through the die with Butterscotch.

I dusted another piece of card with my Anti-Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Olympic Gold Lustre Powder. I cut it out using a Fancy Ribbon Threader die and inked through the die with Butterscotch. I threaded some Cream Satin Edged Organza Ribbon through the slits in the die cut and wrapped the excess ribbon around the back of the background. I tied a bow with the same ribbon. I pushed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into the Perfect Medium, added some Olympic Gold Lustre Powder and heat set. I added this to my bow.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Cream Pearls in the top right hand corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
