For You

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 12noon (with Leonie) and 4pm (with Genevieve). I have some lovely shoe stamps on the shows so I'm really pleased that I have a couple of lady presenters. I have used quite a variety of Spellbinders dies on the cards - both old and new so you'll be able to see that the stamps will hopefully work with dies that you may have in your collection. By the way, I have ordered some of the new stamp sets for my Amazon Store - I should have them early next week.

Here's today's card -

I used Milk and Sand Card for this sample. For the background, I first randomly inked through the Lattice Mask with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. Then, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Vintage Filigree Stamp still using Scattered Straw. I repeated the process with the Art Collage Stamp. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Taylor Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the surface. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Scattered Straw using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Floral Footsteps Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. Making an appearance on the shows is an old favourite - Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. I used some to colour in the flowers and foliage on the boot. I used Jade Mint from the Luscious Greens Set and Yellow Sparkle & Olympic Gold from the Autumn Sunset Set. I added a few 3mm Cream Pearls to the centre of the flowers. I cut a larger Pearl Effects out of Sand Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Squares and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I cut the next size up out of Sand Card.

I tied a bow using Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Small Fancy Pearl Embellishment (on Sue's shows on Sunday).

I assembled the card as shown adding a 8mm Cream Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

See you later!

Thanks for stopping by.
