Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 11am (with Leonie) and 5pm (with Shaun). Hope you can join me.

Here's a card from today's shows -

For the background, I inked through the Blossom Mask with Fired Brick Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask along the card to extend the design. With the stamp in my hand I randomly stamped the Clocks A6 Stamp using Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. Then I filled in some of the gaps using the Postcards A6 Stamp, using Fired Brick. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran 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 inked around the edges with Fired Brick.

I stamped the Daisy Swirl Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Blue Raspberry Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked through the die with Fired Brick. I cut a mat out of Ruby Card using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Daisy Swirl using Perfect Medium and embossed with Blue Raspberry Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I tied a bow using Red Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

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

See you later!

Thanks for stopping by.

  25. Hi Julia, I love this card and actually managed to watch you make it an hour or so ago. The combination of goodies on today's show is great as there are no dies to draw us away. I also think it truly shows your talent of stamping which is huge in my opinion. Take a rest and hope to see you later on at 5pm
