Sneak Peak

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, today I'm sharing a sneak peak from tomorrow's shows. This card is by no means difficult but it's one of my favourites.

The background is from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad. The image is one of 4 new handbag stamps that I have on the show (all due in my Amazon Store very shortly). This is the Rose Blossom Purse. I stamped it using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 22 and cut a mat out of Black Card using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22,

The sentiment is from the Hearfelt Creations Timeless Sentiments Stamp Set and has been stamped using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and cut a mat out of Black Card using another die from the same set.

  I tied a bow using Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Crystal Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm Black Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Morning Julia and Wattsonettes. Would we really ignore our fellow addicts if we knew it was their birthday ? Nooo of course not : ) enjoy your new toys Patricia xx
    As you say Julia its not a difficult card but a stricking one as monochrome usually is, it hits the nail on the head. I will try to watch as many of your show's as I can tomorrow whilst I get sorted for the Farmers Market/Craft Fair this Sunday (have to try and get a few pennies somehow to feed my addiction) !! OOOARR

    Baby sitting our Grand-dog today so goodness knows how much crafting I'll get done between trying to save the letterbox and waiting for my injection delivery ! Maybe he'll just chillax on the sofa while I play.

    Have a lovely Friday, stay warm and happy (and stress free Julia)
