Party Time

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 12noon and 4pm - both scheduled with Leonie.

Today's card features the Party Time 3 in 1 Set from Couture Creations -

For the background, I used the embossing folder that comes in the set and ran it through the Grand Calibur with some Coconut White Card. It is possible to extend the design neatly - I'll try to show that in a demo. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Using some of the cupcake stamps in the set, I used Dusty Concord to stamp them in some of the circles in the embossed design.

I stamped the main image from the set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the die from the set. I stamped some more cupcakes using the Perfect Medium and embossed with the True White Detail Powder. I cut a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge die out of Rich Plum Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the set onto some Mauve Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with the True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges.

I stamped some of the bunting stamps from the set onto Rich Plum and Mauve Card. Some I stamped using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder, others I stamped using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out using the appropriate dies in the set. I folded each one around a length of Baker's Twine as shown, gluing the front to the back with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Love & Hugs

  2. Hi Julia. Great card in a pretty colour. I love the 3 in i sets. Very good prices too. Sadly I can't afford any at the moment so more items for the wish list : ) Great show yesterday and I hope all goes well for you today, as long as there is some stock left that you can demo! Take care.

  3. Morning Julia.
    Thank you what a good idea these sets are, your demos are excelent. at the moment in the same position as Mrs B roll on January take care Kitty.

  4. Good morning Julia I love the card. Those sets are amazing and what a good idea everything together in one set. I enjoyed your demos yesterday. I hope it all goes well today I think you will have sell outs. Love Jackie

  6. Morning 'Minnie Sue' and all Wattsonettes. Smashing show's yesterday Julia, I dont know if you are aware but the tips, advice and help you give us as you are doing your demo's are soooo useful, I can count on one hand how many demonstrators do that, and its so necassary for not only new crafters, but to those that 'play' on a regular basis but still pick up tips and idea's so thanks Julia for helping us understand the art of spending more money oops, I mean help us understand the why's of certain techniques, etc if you had not explained about the bunting die yesterday, so many who bought the set would be hunting for it as you did. The card - mmmm, not yet sure about cupcake maddness but the butterfly part of the set is beautiful and can be used for multiple occassions. I too cant afford to buy but I do love watching your demo's and have shows saved from way waaaay back to go back to and just watch and learn.
    Good luck with your shows today Julia.
    To all Wattsonettes, enjoy your Saturday and see you all tomorrow. Oh, I find myself listening out for familiar names on CC with the emails. Maybe start a game - list the names of e-mailing bloggers lol.
    Hugs to all.

  10. Morning Julia,
    Out of the sets this one is my least favourite, I don't think I'll be buying any at the moment but I think the butterfly will be on my wish list.

  11. Hi Julia, wow these sets are fantastic, and the cards made and your demo's are absolutely fabulous. Love the butterfly set. Wish payday was not so far away. Bx

  17. Hi Julia. Loved the show yesterday. Its such a good idea to have everything in one packet. Like others can't see the fun in cupcakes. Love them to eat but not on cards. I'll be glued to todays shows. I've sprained my foot and have to keep it elevated for a week so what a good excuse to watch C+C all day.

    Love Val x
