My Love

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all the emails and comments yesterday - much appreciated as always.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Smooch Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the Scroll Border from the Creative Expressions Scroll Border & Corner Stamp Set 3 times using Red Geranium Archival.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Scroll Heart using Red Geranium Archival. I cut it out using scissors. I cut a Spellbinders Lace Hearts out of Rich Red Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Sweet Hearts Clear Stamp Set using Red Geranium Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Label & Banner Dies and cut a Spellbinders 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops out of Rich Red Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to each cornet and some dots of Berry Red Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Sorry I am having finger trouble today! Hi Julia. I love todays card. The 3 strips seem to make the heart really stand out. Beautiful stamps too. Glad the Toolshed went well : ) I did miss the 5pm show : ( I couldn't send emails for some of yesterday so didn't get one to you at C & C sadly, but congrats to Patricia Howarth on her card : ) I hope you can take a little break now! Take care.

  9. Hi Julia
    Loving this card. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing you and Nigel yesterday - have yet to watch your later show!!
    Your demos were great - you are so inspiring. Look forward to your next show - hoping it is with Nigel - a great presenter!

  10. Good morning Julia today's card is beautiful. I know what I will be doing for Valentine's day this year. Sounds like everything went well yesterday. Have a great day today. Love Jackie

  11. Morning Julia, Firstly, Thank You ladies for the congratulations on winning a 'Julia' card, I was over the moon when they read out my name, I have never won a card before, I am sooooooooo excited.
    Secondly, your shows yesterday, Julia, were fab-u-lous, I loved the rapport with the presenters, especially Nigel. I would be really embarrassed if I was Nigel, he will never live it down, the offer of a 'Roast Lamb' dinner, and you still haven't got it, hahahaha, well better luck next time.
    Thirdly, your card today is gorgeous, I saw it yesterday, I'm loving the Red Geranium ink, not a colour I would normally go for, but you have inspired my interest in it. Loving the triptych panels and also loving the red die-cut under the sentiment. Fabulous card.
    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, in anticipation of the fantastic 'Work of Art' that you will be sending me, I am 'over the moon'.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Hi Julia, I watched you with the fantastic Nigel, he seems so genuine! I loved everything you made, and I really love today's Card, you are an inspiration to us all, I didn't watch the 5:00 p.m. Show For certain reason's but loved The Tool Shed, I would have watched if you'd have been on with Leonie or Nigel once more but never mind, looking forward to your next show's. Take care hugs from Sam x

  13. Hi Julia great shows yesterday, really enjoyed them. Your samples were wonderful, love your style nowadays. Congratulations to Patricia on winning a card x

  14. Hi Julia, great shows yesterday, if I could stamp half as well as you I would be happy. I am still chuckling over the bike wheels - very bumpy ride.

    Love Rosemarie xx

  15. Great shows, samples and demos yesterday Julia. Edwina

  16. Hi Julia. Just catching up with the Tool Shed and its fab, so love you and Nigel as a team, you look so relaxed and happy with him. I shall 'wizz' through the 5pm show on FF for the same reason as Sam above, but it vexes me as your help and tips etc are SO valuable to us ALL, never mind ay ?
    Yayyy Patricia - you must be floating, well done : )
    Bye for now.

  17. Lovely card I totally forgot you was doing Tool Shed & forgot to record them I'll have try channel 668 or repeats Do they use Tool Shed shows on the repeats? Well at least the rarely done roast dinner went down well and it was pork not lamb! I love that heart and the three panels behind it The card you used looks (on screen) the perfect colour for a Ruby Wedding card I must make I will have to explore later Why doe work mess up crafting time!

  18. Love the card today the 3 panels make it very different and love the colours.Missed the 12pm show but caught the 5pm one which was great.Thank you.

  19. Morning Julia, a fanastic card for valentines haven't watch your shows

    as usual.

  22. hi Julia
    Love today's card the borders and colours you have used are fantastic. now I haven't watched your shows yet as we didn't come in until after 9.00pm yesterday. I am now so intrigued as to why Sam ans Steph didn't watch it. I'm off to school for 9.30 as I no longer do crowd control on Monday morning. (That's supervising in assembly which runs to 9.30).

  23. Morning Julia,
    Great shows yesterday, you and Nigel always have a blast. Well done to Patricia on winning a card, I send emails but for some reason they always bounce back into my box saying not recognized, can't work out why. You had some lovely cards to show use Julia, thank you.

  24. Hi Julia beautiful craft demos were brill love the red pad I need that hope you have a nice chill today love June xxx

  25. Hi Julia beautiful craft demos were brill love the red pad I need that hope you have a nice chill today love June xxx

  26. Hi Julia, Love the cards and the colour of the new ink pad, It's great you have fun with Nigel he's so easy going you make a good team loved it . Love Jean Z xxx

  27. Haven't seen all the shows yet but they are recorded. Love this card, the border stamp is great and not too fussy for mens' cards. Pat x

  28. Hi Julia ,
    Watched the shows mostly on Record , although did manage to send a quick email in 12 noon hour! However not sure if it went through as I have same problem as Lydia! Yesterday I put a title in and it seemed to go!
    Sp pleased Patricia won a card. Don't know her but sort of feel I do!! One of our ladies!
    Like you I'm not a heart person in craft. I would prefer roses but yesterday's hearts, particularly the denser ones were lovely. Loved the roses. Your cards were beautiful and something for everyone. Put your feet up today!
    Thank you, love Myra

  29. Hello Julia, Another stunning card. love the three panels and the geranium red is so striking. Watched all the great shows, you and Nigel are a joy to watch, shame about the lamb dinner!!! Well done Patricia on winning a Julia card, nice to see one of our ladies win, something for you to treasure.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx

  32. Hi Julia
    Ashamed to say have only ever visited Sue's blog - which I do every day - but feel I must tell you how much I enjoy your shows on C&C - rarely watch them live and have no recorder, but just went into C&C website this morning and found how easy it is to view the videos and fast forward to the demos!! Great sample cards and have already today used your tip re embossing metal embellishments - turned one glossy white!! Thrilled, or what??
    Today's card is giving me inspiration for a Ruby wedding coming up thank you.

  33. Hi Julia, lovely card. Love the panels and the heart stamp. Congratulaions to Patricia on winning a card.

  34. Hello Julia, I watched you make this card and loved it then. I have never thought of making strips for no reason. I have taken this idea on board. I hope you enjoyed Sunday as much as we did.
