Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, here's a sneak peak from tomorrow's shows. The theme is shoes and flowers.

For the background, I inked through the Doddle Daisies Mask with Fired Brick Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask around so that the whole area was covered. Next, with the stamp in my hand, I stamped the Vintage Filigree A6 Stamp several times, again using Fired Brick. Using the same technique, I stamped the Bubbles Stamp using Festive Berries Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then popped it though the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Taylor Embossing Folder to add some texture. I ran it though a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Fired Brick.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Floral Footsteps Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Blue Raspberry Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Squares and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Blue Raspberry Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Card Creator Distressed Edges and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I made a scrunched flower ( I will demo this in the 12noon show) with 6 layers cut from the Spellbinders Blossom 5 die set. I inked the edges with Fired Brick after it was complete. I cut a couple of leaves out of Ruby Card using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
