Today I'm at Melbicks Garden & Leisure, Coleshill, Birmingham. I'm demoing some Spellbinders dies and some Creative Expressions products. If you're in the area, please stop by and say hello.
As promised, today I have a sneak peak from tomorrow's Wedding Shows. But before I show you it, I want to show you the embossing powders I have on the shows. I've picked 4 yummy Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Embossing Powders - in big 20ml pots. I am not planning on stocking my Amazon Store with these or any other products for the next 3 weeks at least as I have to devote as much time as possible prepping for a Pick of the Week starting March 15th. I need to come to terms with the fact that I'm not Superhuman! There are still lots of products still in stock and a whole bunch on auction on ebay - see the links in the right-hand sidebar of this blog.
By the way, if you have any questions for me, it's better if you ask me via email to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than asking here on the blog. I can't guarantee that I'll reply immediately at the moment as I am a bit snowed under!
Anyway, these Lustre embossing powders are fab. Here's what they look like on white card -
Here's today's card -
For the background I used Coconut White Card. I stamped one of the flourishes from the Eco Green Embellishing Flourishes Stamp Set using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it though the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon around it.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Wedding Bliss Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Blossom 5 and inked through the die with Antique Linen. I cut a large square motif using Spellbinders Asian Motifs and inked through the die with Antique Linen.
Fancy Pearl Embellishment slightly by pressing it into Perfect Medium, sprinkling with Lapis Pearl Lustre and heat setting.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
