Thanks for all your support yesterday. I was worried about getting there but the roads were fine and I had allowed myself plenty of time to get there. It was quite nice to have 2 shows quite close together in the afternoon.
Today's card was a demo in the 3pm show and I made it to show off some of the Pinks & Purples Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powders. Well, here there's actually 3 of the pink ones anyway.
Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I moved the mask down the the middle of the background and inked again, then repeated in the bottom section. I then randomly stamped one of the flowers from the Creative Expressions Funky Floral Stamp Set using Victorian Velvet.
For the 3 large panels, I used one of the large scroll stamps from the stamp set. I dusted some Coconut White Card with my anti-static bag and stamped with Perfect Medium. I added Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder (the one on the left) and heat set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B.
The Funky Floral Stamp Set hasn't got any sentiments as such but it does have lots of single words in different fonts so you can make up your own sentiment. I like that. I placed the 'With' and 'Love' stamps on my block and stamped with Perfect Medium. I chose to emboss with the Sunrise Pink Lustre Powder. I cut it out with Matting Basics A and cut a pink mat out using Matting Basics B.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.
Just before I sign off today, I know some of you have been put off buying the Matting Basics Dies as, let's face it, they are a bit boring compared to many of the other Spellbinders dies. But, I have to say I find that I use them a lot especially A's and B's together as you get an 1/8" increment. Of course you can cut rectangles yourself but it's the embossed edge that really does it for me. And, there are a lot of yummy Card Creator dies coming out which build on the core (a fave Spellbinders term it seems) that the Matting Basics Sets give you. Just food for thought!
All for now. Let me know what you think of the Pinks & Purples Embossing Powders.
Thanks for stopping by.
