Sneaky Peak from tomorrows shows

Hi Bloggers.

I always struggle deciding which card to share first before a show and this time is no exception as I am rather pleased with quite a few of the samples I've made for tomorrow's shows. I hope will like them too.

As mentioned last week, I have another 4 Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Embossing Powders on the show. You loved the ones last week and they sold out in the second show. I think you're going to love the ones this week even more so be quick if you want them (all are currently available in my Amazon Store here). Here they are on White & Black Card -

Ok, so I've decided to share this card first -

For the background, I used Coconut White Card. I inked through the Knitted Mask with Spun Sugar Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. Then, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Rose Background using Spun Sugar again. I made sure the ink was dry and then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Almanzo Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Spun Sugar.

I stamped the Zentangled Heart using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pink Mallow Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader and inked through the die with Spun Sugar. I threaded some Blue White American Seam Binding through the slits in the die cut.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge dies out of Pastel Pink Card and at the emboss stage added the Knitted Mask.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Zentangled Flower using Perfect Medium and embossed with Pink Mallow Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge die and inked through the die with Spun Sugar. I cut some Pink/White Striped Grosgrain lengthways and made a ribbon flower as per Sue's Ribbon Flower Tutorial.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges and a Pearl Swirl.

Thanks for stopping by.

  18. Lovely Julia; looking forward to your shows! Just a thought have you ever considered putting a picture of the cards up at the side instead of the title? It would make it a lot easier for us and quicker to find a specific card that we want the details of. Just a thought.

    Happy Crafting

  21. Morning Julia, I'm definitely loving these embossing powders the colours are great, and what a different effect on darker colour card. I'm not a pinky girl, however today's card is beautiful. The Zentangled heart is just stunning, as is the background. Really looking forward to the shows tomorrow. Have a great day, you will probably be prepping for the show, but I know it will be worth it! Crafty hugs Debbie R xx

  22. Hi Julia I really like this card, when I first saw this heart stamp I really wasn't sure about it but since I've seen a few more samples it has grown on me!! I like a few others don't normally do pink but I actually quite like this one. Looking forward to the shows tomorrow love Lesley x

  23. Lovely lustres, pretty card, and more shows to look forward to - what more could a crafter want?

  24. Morning Julia, very pretty card. I am liking the powders, but like others no spare pennies at the mo. I hope I am going to see your show's live, fingers crossed..

    Happy crafting
