Happy Birthday & Amazon Store Stock Updates

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue Wilson's Cascading Hearts Embossing Folder.

I stamped the shoe 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 a Spellbinders Grand Stately Circle and cut a larger Stately Circle out of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and a mat out of Black Card using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles.

I made 2 flowers out if Black Crochet Ribbon, 1 scrunched up flower using the middle sized die from Spellbinders Blossom 5 and 2 scrunched up flowers using the next smallest die from the Blossom 5 set.

I stamped some leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Open Leaf Stamp Set and cut them out using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf die set.

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

I've received the 2 new shoe stamp sets and the 2 stamps sets that are on my shows next Tuesday plus the new smaller size Fancy Pearl Embellishments.
