With Love

Hi Bloggers.

I has had a lovely day with Kathryn yesterday. Today's card is a really simple one to show off 4 of the embossing powders in the Cosmic Shimmer Pinks & Purples set.

The background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Flourish Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink  using Cut n Dry Foam.

The heart stamp is from the Creative Expressions Funky Floral Stamp Set. I stamped it using Perfect Medium. The embossing powders I used from left to right are - Tropic Violet Lustre, Regal Arctic Aurora and Tropic Blueberry Blaze. I cut each one out using Spellbinders Heart Squares and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I put the 'with' and 'love' words from the same stamp set together on my block and again stamped with Perfect Medium. This time I embossed with Blue Moon Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Hi Julia what a lovely simple card that would be easy to do if you need one in a hurry!! It shows off the embossing powders wonderfully and I am definitely going to try using different colours on my cards. Looking forward to your shows on the 4th, SAMs shows were great,I think I might need to get the Sherlock Holmes set they're are so different!! Love Lesley x
