You're invited

Hi Bloggers.

The handbags stamps are back in stock in my Amazon store so I thought I'd share an easy peasy invitation card which features one of the bags and the gorgeous Butterfly Corner that is also in stock.

For the background, I stamped the Creative Expressions Butterfly Corner using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Powder. Then I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Super Plush Embossing Powder. I ran it through a second time and inked around the edge with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Bejewelled Bag using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Marvelous Squares and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I added a 5mm White Pearl.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Large Elegant Sentiments Clear Stamp Set, again using the Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

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

As I said at the start of this post, the handbag stamps are now back in stock and also some of our lovely corner stamps. You can find all the Creative Expressions Singles I have in stock here.

I also have the Feather Background that Nikki had on her shows.

I have both the Blossom and Vintage Felt Packs back in stock and also the Piercing Ruler. The lovely Guipure Lace that I had on my shows is in stock in Cream and Black.

There are a couple of new products designed to work with some of the Creative Expressions embellishments.

Dazzler Settings - designed to be used with Medium Circle Dazzlers (all colours)
Cameo Settings - designed to work with the smaller cameos that come in the 9 piece pack
Both the settings are made from metal and can be coloured with Alcohol Inks and Embossing Powders.

That's about all. 

Thanks for stopping by.
