Hi Bloggers.

I've had a request to post this card. I demoed it in one of the shows on Saturday. It was one of Martyn's favourites.

For the background, I used the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Vines of Passion inner die as a mask. I spritzed through it in each corner with the Mallow from the Cosmic Shimmer Summer Twist Acrylic Misting Inks Set. The ink will just wash off with water. I dried it with my heat tool. I then stamped the Beaded Swirl stamp with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I covered the whole background with a piece of Double-Sided Adhesive and covered it with Clear Glass Micro Beads.

I stamped the Zentangled Heart Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in with some mica powders from the Metallics Set and the Golden Winter Set, the Mallow Acrylic Misting Ink and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I cut it out using the smallest of the Grand Stately Circles Dies and inked through the die with Worn Lipstick using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the heart stamp again using the Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I coloured it in using the same set of colours as the heart. I cut it out using the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Ornamental Tags 2 and inked through the die with Worn Lipstick.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Self Adhesive Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

I have Pick of the Week shows at 2pm and 5pm today - hope you can join me.

Thanks for stopping by.

  24. Beautiful card as usual. Once again you have sadly been paired with someone who is more interested in self promotion than what you are doing. If I hear the words birthday or Germany once more,I will scream! Hope you are with someone else at 5pm.

  25. Hi Julia
    Love this card. The stamp is on my wish list.
    I occasionally doodled like that and only recently found out that it had a name.
    Thanks for sharing!!
