Spirit of Love

Hi Bloggers.

A couple of really simple cards today using Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste. It takes a few hours to dry so prepare a batch for some quick Christmas Card batch making.

Here's the first -

Silver Pearl Texture Paste used through the Over the Roof Tops Mask. Cobalt Card and Cobalt Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA coming to my Amazon Shop soon. The sentiment is from the Justrite Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamp Set, stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder, cut out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Here's the next card (bit out of focus - sorry!) -

Royal Gold Texture Paste used with the Holly Wreath Mask. The sentiment is from the Grand Christmas Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set (on order!), stamped using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Embossing Powder, cut out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two dies and inked throufh the die with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I cut 4 holly corners using the Spellbinders Holly Accents Die Set, inking through the die with Seedless Preserves. I used a dot of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Plum on each corner and put some dots of the sames around the edges.

Great batch cards and quite flat too so not too bad for posting.

Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Hi Julia,
    Oh I love it when we get '2 fers!' (as Sue Wilson would say.Lol! )..and these are gorgeous. I love the blue and must get some of the cobalt blue to do those lovely pearl drops that you do.
    Have a lovely weekend.

    Love Sheila xx

  15. HI Julia, these are lovely cards - I really like the sleigh ride mask..have a great weekend, Carole Z X

  16. Hi Julia,
    Great cards, I think I prefer the blue one. Another technique to try.

  17. Hi Julia,
    These are clever cards and you are right about thinking about postage, that can cost more than the card lol. Very lovely cards today. Thanks

  18. Hi Julia love these cards they will be great if you need to make loads of Xmas cards,it was this sample that made me get the rooftop mask which should be arriving any day now. I will definitely be giving this a go. Looking forward to your shows next week and also Sues to or row. Love Lesley x

  19. hi Julia I saw you do the first card on your show,great idea,and the second card is stunning.
    Enjoy your week end .

  20. Hello Julia, Beautiful cards, the cobalt one is gorgeous, but love them both equally. Have the pastes on my ever growing wish list.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx

  21. 2 beauties this morning Julia,I really like the paste technique

    xx Sandra

  22. Hi Julia, love them, absolutely superb. Keep the ideas coming. Bx

  23. I loved these when I saw them on the tv Julia, just great for simple but effective.
    Have you been at the mulled wine already with your out of focus pic? x

  24. Hi Julia, Two lovely cards, haven't tried the paste, think i'd get in too much of a mess. It does make a good effect though.

  25. Hi Julia, wondered how you did this technique, now I know! Both cards are lovely and couldn't choose between them if I had to. Will definitely give it a go! x

  26. Hi Julia, 2 super cards. Something to keep in mind for when I can order some new crafty stash as I don't have the texture paste just now.
    Hope you enjoy your weekend,
    Hugs Lynn

  27. Good afternoon Julia,
    I love the blue and silver with Santa flying over the rooftops. I am practising these pearls drops as they really make the card have that wee bit extra of a look to it, without being all singing and dancing.
    Take care,
    Love and crafty hugs Norah

  28. Hi Julia
