Happiness Always

Hi Bloggers.

Peachy card today.

For the background, I used Milk card and inked through the Doodle Daisies mask with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. Then I stamped the little windmill style flower from the Eco Green Embellishing Flourishes Stamp Set using Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

I stamped the heart image from the Creative Expressions From the Heart Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Blossom 5 and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a larger Blossom 5 out of Peach Card and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pearl Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a mat out of Peach Card and used Matting Basics B to cut it out inking through the die once again with Dried Marigold.

I tied a bow using Cream Satin Edged Organza Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into the Perfect Medium and added some Lapis Pearl Lustre. I tapped off the excess and heat set then added it to my bow.

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

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Good morning Julia,
    This is a lovely card, I saw those dies in my collection yesterday and like this look with the inking, I'm going to try something today with that as the inspiration, thanks.

  2. Morning Julia,
    What a pretty card - making you rown backgrounds with masks is something we should all do.

  12. You are like me Julia, in that you use the Blossoms dies flat, quite often, as well as making them into flowers. I find them very useful. Looking forward to the shows!

  22. Hello Julia, This is such a pretty card, the dried mariglod is so delicate and love the Doodle Daisies mask. I agree with Lesley a good idea to use blossom dies as toppers, you give us so much inspiration.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx

  23. Hi Julia, I find that my thoughts echo everyone else today as using the blossom die as the mat to your topper is not something I had thought of doing either! and it looks so effective, thank you Regards Jackie D
