Sneak Peak

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I'd start sharing some cards from the shows I have this coming Sunday. I have 2 lovely collections from Heartfelt Creations on the shows - Sweet Juliet and Floral Key. You can see these collections on the Heartfelt Creations Blog by clicking these links - Sweet Juliet, Floral Key.

Here's todays card -

My background was in 2 pieces. For the top section I stamped the flower spray from the Heartfelt Creations Recovery Wishes Stamp Set using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I inked around the edges with a little Bundled Sage Distress Ink.

For the bottom section, I ran the piece of card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Cheerful Embossing Folder. I inked all over with Bundled Sage Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam to make the design pop. Then I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over. Once dry, I buffed it up a little and inked a round the edges with Bundled Sage.

I glued the 2 pieces onto a piece of Soft Gold Card. I hid the join by wrapping a piece of Blue White American Seam Binding and then a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the Sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Beautiful Juliet Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I inked all over using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and then cut it out using scissors, cuttin right along the Thinking of You section. I cut a Spellbinders Splendid Circle. I cut a Spellbinders Stately Circle and inked through the die on this one with Victorian Velvet.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I made a flower out of felt from the Vintage Pack using both of the dies from the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die set and added a sparkly brad from my stash.
I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the right corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Sneak Peak from the Floral Key collection.

Thanks for stopping by.

  29. hi Julia,So glad you gave me a sneak peak( cos I have very little money left and around 19 left before my pot is filled again) and was just contemplating to buy some of the new Tonic dies. Now I have to decide which to go for?, although Tonic can be bought quite easily whereas couture creations are a little bit trickier.
    Good luck with the shows, I will be watching.
