There's only one like you!

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your messages, emails and comments here on the blog. I'm glad you enjoyed the eclectic mix of stamps on the shows.

Here's the card I didn't quite get to finish in the first show yesterday -

For the background I stamped the Sunflower Corner around the edges using Fired Brick Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Ooh La La Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Fired Brick using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Tatty's Sunflower image using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Marigold, Scarlet Flame and Umber from the Autumn Shades Set, Sunflower from the Summer Fayre Set, Jade Teal from the Garden Twist Set and Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I cut a large Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle out of our new Ruby Card (on order). At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Great Almanzo Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Treasured Memories Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 17 and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of 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.

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. Hi Julia

    Once again a lovely bright card. Don't usually like red but will keep looking to see when this one comes in stock. As I quite like this colour of red.

  16. Lovely card Julia. Recorded both of your shows (or so I thought) but the second one didn't record for some reason so I'm not a happy bunny. Watched the first show though and thoroughly enjoyed it as always. Pat x

  17. Hi Julia, I enjoyed your shows,as always,I love the way you make your backgrounds,also,you reminded me about Tatty Button,I`ve put those stamps `somewhere safe` and I can`t remember where.Will be buying the red card! Lovely card,bright and cheerful,thanks, Jackie. x

  18. Great shows yesterday Julia, Red isn't a colour I use much except maybe at Christmas but I think I will be from now on as this looks so good

    xx Sandra

  19. Morning Julia, another great card although I have to admit that Tatty Button is not necessarily my favourite. Have added the inks that you coloured with to my wish list as well now as they looked so easy to use and I loved the fact that they didn't spill when knocked over so ideal fro my granddaughter to use too.

    Have a great day

  20. hi Julia, although I don't like the image the background and all the techniques are, as usual, so varied and interesting. Best wishes Jackie

  21. Hi Julia this is a lovely card and as others have said that is a nice shade of red card. I'm another one that doesn't really like tatty button but that doesn't stop me from liking the card. Loved both your shows yesterday and I'm looking forward to sues show from CHA love Lesley x

  22. Hi Julia, missed the shows due to minor crisis yesterday, didn't even get a chance to set record, but am sure they were fantastic and that your demos were superb. Love this card. Bx

  23. Hi Julia, pretty card today. Great shows yesterday. Kind regards Joanne K x

  24. Hello Julia, A pretty and warm card today, will be keeping an eye open for the card, really like this shade of red. Tatty Button stamps are on my wish list, so quirky, I love them.
    Missed the first show, but the second one was great, you are so happy and your humour is infectious, thank you for your inspiration.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx
