Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

I had hoped to demo this card on Saturday but unfortunately there wasn't the time.

For the background, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue to the Justrite Sweet Lace Background Stamp using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I stamped onto some Coconut White Card, re-applied the Flake & Glitter Glue and stamped again to extend the design. I quickly cleaned the glue off using a Grime Boss. I sprinkled some Silver Chrome Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter all over the tacky background.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Bijou Bag using Perfect Medium and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22 and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I coloured in some areas of the bag with Persian Sea Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Circus Brights Mica Spray Set.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Bijou Bag using Perfect Medium and and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Dies and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Clear Sparkler.

 I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Silver Lustre Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Morrrning Julia and Wattsonettes. Fab weekend for us Sue and Julia addicts and I totally agree with Patricia, we need MORE show's from you ladies, pleeeease, prettty please (wow, how selfish are we, these girls are on their knees, gasping for air and WE want MORE) !! What do I say, we cant help being addicted, your fault : )

  13. Hi Julia, Today's card looks lovely but it must be so disappointing to plan demo's that don't get shown . The stamps are stunning and I hope to buy them in the new year.

  14. Pretty card Julia - they never give you enough time to demo, I know they want to sell us stuff, but if we don't see it demo'd, we won't know what to do with the stuff!

  15. Morning Julia,
