Here's today's card -
I just used masks on the background for this one, no stamps. I used Milk Card. First I randomly stamped through the Squared Mask with Bundled Sage Distress Ink, then repeated the process with the Delicate Mask and Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I ran the piece through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Paradise Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I added a piece of Cream Guipure Duchess Lace along the right-hand edge securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue
I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Creations Journey of Love Keys Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I colored in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Marigold from the Autumn Shades Set and Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I stamped and embossed the image again. I laid a template I had made from the Hearfelt Creations Burnished Key Die over the the image, slotted the die over the top and ran it though the Grand Calibur. I added the cut key over the top of the coloured image using 3d Foam and added an 8mm Cream Pearl
. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 28 out of Apricot Card.
I made a flower using 3 of the 2nd smallest dies from Spellbinders Labels 24 and 3 of the middle sized dies from the same set. I added some Dried Marigold to the edges of the petals. I stamped a couple of leaves from the Heartfelt Creations Bold Leaf Die Set using Bundles Sage Distress Ink and cut them out using the corresponding dies from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.
I assembled the card as shown adding some more Cream Pearls
, a Pearl Swirl
and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Pearl PVA in Crystal
around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
