Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Another easy peasy card featuring the Lilac Stamp -

For the background, I ran a piece of Mauve card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over.

I stamped the Lilac image from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Violet Frost and Golden Pear Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using a couple of dies from the Spellbinders Adorning Squares Die Set and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Organza and added a Frosted Violet Dazzler.

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

I'm off to Taunton this afternoon for a weekend of demos and workshops with Craftasmic. I shall be relying on Blogger to share my posts on time.

Thanks for stopping by.
