A Recovery Wish For You and Amazon Store Stock Updates

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Milk Card. I randomly stamped the flower spray from the Heartfelt Creations Recovery Wishes Stamp Set using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Twisted Hearts M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design (repeating pattern so easy to line up) and then inked around the edges with Faded Jeans using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon around just below the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 18 and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I dotted a little CS Flake & Glitter Glue on the sprays on the image and added Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Aurora Sparkle Glitter. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Pearl Effects Dies out of Periwinkle Card and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

 I cut a couple of Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch flowers out of Milk Card and spritzed them with Marine Ultra Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Shimmering Luxury Mica Spray Set. I made a flower and cut some leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm Cream Pearl to 3 of the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

I have some new embellishments in my Amazon Store -

Crystal Sparklers
Vintage Metal Buttons
Crystal Sparklers are now back in stock
Also back in stock is the CS Flake & Glitter Glue. Ribbon has been selling well lately so I've re-stocked that too.

Don't forget - you can clink on the links (products in blue in the text) to go straight to the products in my store. Alternatively, click on Amazon in the top bar of this blog to take you to my storefront.

All for now.

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Morning Julia, happy Saturday Wattsonettes. Just woke Sue up now its your turn Julia !
    Lovely card, beautiful strong colour, in fact I love all the card you use on the show's Julia, any particular web place you can share with me to buy a few please ? Or where I can send Santa (its Mr Lanc really but he doesn't think I know)
    Ive tried my usual store that sells all SB etc stock and they can order it in, but Id like an online store that you use a lot Julia or a website our lovely ladies use here as I cant get out much now its getting cold : (
    Julia, can you go back to a msg I left last night re ebay please when you have time, thanks so much.

    Sending Saturday smiles and sticky hugs to everyone here, and those that enter the world of Watts throughout the day xx

    1. I did reply the other day - every time I test the ebay link it works so I really don't know why it's not working for you. You don't need an ebay account to browse.
      Virtually all the card I use is from Creative Expressions.

    2. Ok thanks Julia but feeling a right pain now. When ebay appears with the - search for box what do I search for ? Because that is the page that first appears on my phone direct from your blog ! Do I type in Julia Watts craft or what ? Sorry If Im annoying you.

    3. You should have said you were trying to use the link from your phone. It doesn't work the same way on a phone. It uses the mobile version. As I don't actually have an ebay store anymore (too expensive) it's very difficult to search for the products via a phone. I suggest you try the link from a computer - that will work. Julia
