Friends Forever

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card. It features the primrose image from the Spring Flowers Stamp Set but I have coloured it in as an auricula which is in the same family and comes in some great colours - go google them!

For the background, I randomly inked through sections of the Eyelet Lace Mask with Bundled Sage Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Bundled Sage.

I stamped the image from the Spring Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Golden Pear and Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set and Apple Green Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 28 and inked through the die with Bundled Sage I cut the largest of the dies from the Spellbinders Diamond Effects out of Mauve Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Bundled Sage. I cut a Spellbinders Captivating Square out of Mauve Card.

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

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

I am having trouble linking items in my Amazon Store to my posts at the moment which is a bit annoying! Hopefully normal serveice will be resumed soon. I do have a few Joyous Santa and Herald Angel back in stock. Goodness knows if those links will work!

Don't forget that Sue has shows today at 12noon (2 hours) and 7pm. Lots of new Justrite stamps!

Thanks for stopping by.
