I have shows today on Create & Craft at 12noon for 2 hours (with Nigel - beginning to be a regular date!) and Dawn at 5pm. I can now reveal that guesting with me will be Nikki Payne. Nikki is on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team and has recently made samples for me for the 3 in 1 shows and the last Heartfelt Creations Toolshed I did. This is her first show so I hope you will give her all your support as you have always supported me. If you'd like to see some of her work, pop over to her blog http://nikkiscraftingcreations.blogspot.co.uk/

Before I go on with today's card, I'd like to tell you that Sam Poole has been nominated in the British Craft Awards 2014 for her wonderful stamp designs. You can see the details here on her blog and there's a link to take you to the place where you can vote for her. Would be absolutely fantastic if she were to win!
Here's today's card -
So, for the background, I stamped the Rose Garden background using Dried Marigold Distress Ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. Then I took the Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad and really worked the ink into the white spaces in the design. I used a piece of Kitchen Roll to remove the excess ink. You find that the ink really works into the little cracks in the embossing powder and looks really aged. I ran some Champagne Stickles around the edges and put aside to dry.
I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Vintage Floral Labels Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two Die and inked through the die with Dried Marigold.
I cut a Spellbinders Labels Four out of Ginger Card. At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Paradise Embossing Folder. I went around the edge with Champagne Stickles and put aside to dry.
Vintage Metal Button.
Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.
See you later!
Thanks for stopping by.
