Miss You

Hi Bloggers.

I'm still waiting for the Blog Candy to be claimed. Please check back to Monday lunchtime's post to see if you're the winner.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Jazmyne Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.I popped some Black Pearls in each corner.

I stamped the flower image from the Justrite Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamp Set onto some Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Card Creator Distressed Edges. I coloured in using Angel Red, Angel Blue Sparkle and Lilac Gold Sparkle from the Cosmic Shimmer Lovely Lights Sparkle Pigments Set, Olympic Gold from the Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Sunset Watercolour Set and Jade Teal from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Watercolour Set.

I stamped some of the flower heads onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Powder. I coloured them in using Angel Red from the Sparkle Pigments Set and Olympic Gold from the Autumn Sunset Watercolour set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Vintage Floral Labels Stamp Set onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two.

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

Don't forget to watch Hels on Create & Craft today at 3pm and 6pm.

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Good morning Julia today's card is so pretty I love those flowers. I will try to watch Hels today I can do that and wrap presents at the same time. Have a great day. Love Jackie

  7. Morning Julia and Wattsonettes, feels quite cold at the mo ! Suppose it IS December what can I expect you are thinking ! Very pretty card Julia, I must say that I really like all the new products we have seen from Sunday onwards, and I think I MUST get the new addition stamps soon into the new year, as its a forgone conclusion that New Baby cards etc are required September time !!! So it gives me plenty of time to get a few made ready for the Autums craft fairs !
    Hopefully by then I will be the proud owner of my own new baby (NOOOO NOT the human kind, the 'mangle' kind) so I will be able to use all the new A4 folders - although I'll never catch up now as there are soooo many.
    Well, off to make my 2nd coffee of the day, Im so tired.

    Love to all.
