Just a Note and a Demo Card Give Away

Hi Bloggers.

This card was a demo last Friday -

For the background, I ran the Couture Creations Compassionate Embossing Folder through the Grand Calibur with some Coconut White Card. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon and a piece of Sky Blue American Seam Binding around the centre.

I stamped the large stamp from the Creative Expressions Artsy Floral Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Aqua Blaze Embossing Powder from the Brights Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Wavy Rectangles and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire. I stamped the co-ordinating flower from the Creative Expressions Whimsical Floral Stamp Set 3 times using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Tropic Aqua Blaze Powder. I cut them out with scissors, trimming a little extra off one of them, and inked with Chipped Sapphire.

I stamped the sentiment from the Artsy Floral Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Tropic Aqua Blaze Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire.

I tied a bow using 3 lengths of the American Seam Binding. I spritzed it with some water, scrunched it up and dried it. I added a Medium Square Dazzler to the centre.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White Pearl  around the edges.

I have the card that I made in the Studio to give away as it was the other card that I made that was sent out to the viewer who's email was pulled out of the Watering Can of Wonder. So, if you would like it, leave a comment on this post. I will draw a winner on Sunday evening (20th Jan).

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  9. It's a lovely card Julia, but I don't think I'd like to cut out those flowers.
    Would love to win the card though.

  12. Morning Julia, wow this is a beautiful card, love the colours and the design! Watching your demos was a real inspiration - I bought a set of these embossing powders but haven't tried them yet. Having a craft day today so looking forward to the opportunity to experiment. I don't usually find I have great success with words & sentiments when using embossing so hoping this works out as good for me as yours have!!

  16. Hello Julia, I am not usually a fan of blue but this is simply beautiful. Snowed in today so will have a go at using my new embossing powders and the lace that arrived yesterday. Perhaps I will be more adventurous with my colours.
    Take care everyone.

  22. Nice idea to add levels of circles in stead of flowers for a change, though I am rather addicted to flowers.
