Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day yesterday - didn't Nikki do well?

Here's today's card -

An easel card with that wonderful Stork image. I've used Milk and Blush Card on this.

So, some layers of Milk and Blush Card. The top layers were embossed with the Heart Confetti Mask. I wrapped some Pink & White Baker's Twine from the Pastel Set around the top section.

The Stork is from the Justrite Special Delivery Clear Stamp Set, stamped using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder, coloured with Cosmic Tone Matt Drawing Ink from the Cosmic Shimmer Skin Tones Set, Pastel Pink Watercolour from the Cosmic Shimmer Pastels Watercolour Paint Set, Weathered Wood and Victorian Velvet Distress Markers. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 4 and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

I stamped 3 baby booties using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured them in using Pastel Pink Watercolour and Victorian Velvet Distress Marker.

I stamped the sentiment, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Five and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

Thanks for stopping by.

Be sure to pop back later to see if you're a winner of the blog candy.

  5. Hi Julia
    Your cards great love the shows glad Nikki got through ok thank you Tracy w x

  6. Lovely card Julia, loved your shows yesterday, Nikki did really well and look forward to watching her again xxxxx

  7. Good morning Julia today's card is beautiful. I managed to watch the shows yesterday surrounded by wrapping paper and sticky tape. Nikki did very well all the demos were fab. There are so many things on my wish list now. Have a great day you deserve a rest. Love Jackie

  8. Morning Julia, I loved, loved, loved your Shows yesterday, great techniques and fabulous samples and demo's. Nikki had great shows too, she did look nervous, but that's understandable on her first go, hopefully she will be more relaxed next time. I loved her demo's, and I will definitely be getting my 'Stickles' out again haha.
    I managed to get the Rose Garden stamp and some of the new embossing folders. I really wanted the Special Delivery stamps, but couldn't afford them too, maybe next time haha, but I will have to have them.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. Morning Julia, lovely card, I love the stork, so unusual, loved the shows yesterday. Both of you were great and I struggled to choose which products to get - a few on my wish list!! Happy week hugs Annie

  10. Morning Julia and Wattsonettes. Just catching up on yesterday's shows. You did grat as usual and will pop over to Nikki's blog next to congratulate her, poor girl looked frightened to death, thought you'd glued her to the floor Julia she looked rigid !
    I love the new baby stamps. Ages ago I was printing off 'Adoption'sentiments to put on my cards with the Crafters Companion cd roms but Mr Lancashire thought it 'odd' so didnt bother after that (Im going back at least 3yrs ago) and so I was amazed to see the adoption stamp in the set, unfortunatly it will have to wait 'till New Year but it will be a set I get with my birthday/C gift vouchers.
    This card is so sweet Julia (and Black Eye Susan plants are stunning providing you have a big garden) big bright yellow flower with black centre.
    Just call me - Lancashire Titmarsh from now on : )

    Monday hugs to all.

    ps -.Julia Im doing a batch of cards all requiring flitter flake glue, do I have to wash my stamp between each use to stop build up, or can it be done at the end of my conveyor belt card batch making ? Im concerned that it will start and get too sticky by card number 3 and rip my card as I remove the acrylic stamp ! Thanks for any advise xx
