Thank You!

Hi Bloggers.

Tonight I launch the Justrite & Heartfelt Creations Pick of the Day. All the times and channels are in the left-hand side bar of this blog. Hope you can join me for some of the shows.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Flint Embossing Folder. Unfortunately, that folder isn't on the shows - sorry! I edged the background with a little Denim Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

The two frames and the sentiment are from the Justrite For All You Do Vintage Labels Three Clear Stamp Set. I lined the sentiment up in my frame on my acrylic block, stamped using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder.  I stamped the larger frame from the same stamp set in the same way. I cut them both out using Justrite Vintage Labels Three Dies.

I cut the largest of the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Butterfly Corner dies out of Pastel Blue Card. I stamped the smallest 3 flowers from the Heartfelt Tattered Blossoms Pre using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Lake Lustre. I did this twice so I had 2 sets. I cut them out using the Heartfelt Creations Tattered Blossoms Die Set with a template I had already made (instructions on die set packaging and I'll try to explain how when I demo). I shaped the petals with my fingers and glued them on top of each other as shown. I added an 8mm White Pearl to the centre of each one.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more pearls in the top left hand corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue around the edges.

The launch is at 9pm tonight on Ideal World with Shaun. I'll hopefully see you later.

Thanks for stopping by.
