Three Cheers

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, this card is the brother to the one I posted yesterday the reason being that I used the die cut from the aperture in yesterday's card. Couldn't bear to waste it.

Actually, for this card, I found that I had a piece of Milk Card that I had cut the same Decorative Labels 8 die out of. It was just the right size. Lucky me! I popped the die back in the aperture in the Milk Card (so I would keep the lovely debossed edge) and popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Stone Mask using the embossing sandwich (making sure that the cutting edge of the die was going down into my tan mat and my mask was on top). I inked around the edges with Black Soot.

I also popped the die cut back into the die and inked through the die with Black Soot. To see how the die cut pattern was created, please see yesterday's post. I stamped the beer glass from the Creative Expressions Cheers Stamp Set 3 times using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured them in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Sea View from the Garden Twist Set for the froth and the glass, Marigold and Umber from the Autumn Shades Set for the beer. I cut the images out with scissors and went around the edges with a black marker pen to hide any white bits.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Black Soot.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Morning Julia, great card watched you do the card that this
    waste??? came from like everyone else I have all the bits I
