Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have shows on Create & Craft at 3pm and 7pm - both with Dawn.

This is my first demo at 3pm and is my favourite of the cards I've made for these shows -

For the background, I stamped the Wrought Iron Corner in all 4 corners using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Olympic Gold Lustre Embossing Powder. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Flint Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Zentangled Flower twice using Perfect Medium and embossed with Olympic Gold Lustre. I cut them out using scissors, just cutting the head out on the second one. I shaped the petals and glued the heads together, offsetting slightly. I cut a Spellbinders Asian Motif and inked through the die with Anique Linen.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Wrought Iron Corner using Perfect Medium and embossed with Olympic Gold Lustre.  I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 with the sentiment towards the right hand side. I inked through the die with Antique Linen.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon. I pressed a  Fancy Pearl Embellishment into a Perfect Medium Pad, sprinkled with Olympic Gold Lustre, tapped off the excess and heat set. I added a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Hope you can join me later.

Thanks for stopping by.

  39. Hi Julia, can I say how good a photographer you are, as I saw this card on C and C before I looked at your blog.
    Now to the card, Its really lovely, and I have also done this stamp in just one colour and like it very much.
    I confess to giving this stamped image to four small grandcholdren to colour in, and all was quiet for 30 plus mins haha.
    Take care X Ros

  40. Good morning Julia,
    What a beautiful card whether for a special occasion or a Golden Wedding which i think it would be stunning for. I really do like this flower that you are stamping, as it has the look of the new Zenangle craze but without the hard work.
    Have a good day
    Love and crafty hugs
