Have a Fabulous Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

The stamps from last Sunday's shows are now back in stock in my Amazon Store. You can see them all in the Singles section here. Also back in stock are the Dazzler Settings and I have a couple of colours of Stickles from recent shows.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by randomly inking through the Lattice Mask with Barn Door Distress Ink. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Rose Corner with the Barn Door Distress Ink. Then, I randomly stamped the 'wish' sentiment from the Justrite Grateful Hearts Clear Stamp Set, again using Barn Door. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Barn Door.

I stamped the Classic Rose Stem using Jet Black Archival and coloured in using Barn Door and Crushed Olive Distress Markers. I cut out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with Barn Door.

 I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Grateful Hearts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two Dies and inked through the die with Barn Door.

I tied a bow using Red/Ivory Striped Grosgrain. I added a Dazzler Setting and a Red Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Berry Sparkle Pearl PVA around the edges.

Kim Robertson has shows today on Create & Craft at 9am and 2pm. Hope you can tune in.

Thanks for stopping by.
