We've had a few sunny days recently which has been lovely but we could do with a few more degrees on the thermometer!
Today's card features another Heartfelt Creations set -
For the background, I stamped one of the little stamps from the Vintage Watering Can Stamp Set (HCPC 3518) over some Milk Card with Jet Black Archival - I did not emboss. I coloured the little flowers with Sunflower Matt Drawing Ink from the Summer Fayre Set and the little leaves with Meadow Lime from the Garden Twist Set. I then popped the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder
. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then edged with with Peeled Paint Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam
I stamped the image from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I used the Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks again to colour in. I used Sunflower (Summer Fayre), Meadow Lime & Soft Moss (Garden Twist), Umber and Dark Spice (Autumn Shades). I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges from the Card Creator series and inked through the die with Peeled Paint. I cut a mat out of green card using the next size up in the same die set.
I stamped the sentiment from the Melodious Songbird Stamp Set (HCPC 3511) using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Blossom 5 and inked through the die with Peeled Paint. I cut the same size out again using green card.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl
around the edges.
Don't forget, Sue has her Pick of the Day starting at 9pm today on Ideal World.
Thanks for stopping by.

Morning Julia, your not wrong a few more degrees would go down a treat. Lets hope it does. However, wouldn't we still moan that it was to hot!! Anyway, what a lovely card. I love the rusty old watering can with the flowers, very shabby shic. All the colour combinations go really well together. I'm sitting ready and waiting, computer up and running waiting for tonight's POD! Have a great day. Crafty hugs Debbie R xxReplyDelete

Hi Julia this is a lovely springlike card and makes me wish that the warmer weather would hurry up and start!!! It's raining and quite miserable here in London but at least we've got sues shows to look forward to tonight!! Lol I'm really liking the distressed edge die I didn't think I needed anymore rectangle dies bit this one does add a certain something which makes it different. Love Lesley xReplyDelete
Lovely card and very different to the ones recently.. I love the rectangle die that you have used, makes a change from clean cut lines xxReplyDelete
I love the sentiment on this card Julia. I'll have to look to getting that set.ReplyDelete
Hi Julia, Well we haven't had the rain here in Suffolk and it has been quite bright but the wind is so cold so a few more degrees wouldn't go amiss. However your cards make up for it and I just love this watering can, makes a really nice card. Regards Jackie DReplyDelete
