Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your emails and comments yesterday. Glad you like the new stamps.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the Crystal Cut image using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powder Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 out of Soft Gold Card.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4 and inked through the die with Antique Linen.

For the background, I stamped the Scented Corner in each corner using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Powder. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked around the edges with Antique Linen. I added some Icicle Stickles to the spots in the design.

I cut a strip of paper from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with 2 of the dies from the Spellbinders Classic Petal Edgeabilities Die Set. I added a thin strip of Soft Gold Card and ran some Icicle Stickles along the straight edge.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream 8mm Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel PVA in Pastel Lemon around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  26. Good Morning Julia,
    Can't usually say that as don't usually do this until the afternoon!!

    Have seen both Shows, one live and one on record! Both excellent. I thought your samples were beautiful and you got such variation from the stamps. I m not sure I need more than one perfume bottle stamp so ordered mine from you - don't tell anyone!

    Looking forward to seeing the others in more detail as the time passes so quickly !
    I love the subtlety of today's card. The corners are lovely also.
    Thanks again,

  27. I was chasing my tail all day and missed both of your shows, but this bottle die is really ornamental - love the card.

  28. I am so annoyed with myself - completely forgot to set the recorder so missed both shows. I don't mind having senior moments but not when it affects my crafting! Beautiful card Julia, I hope to get to see some more cards from your shows. Pat x

  29. Hi Julia, loved your demos yesterday enjoyed them very much. I love the corner stamps so pretty and your samples are beautiful . Love Jean Z xx

  30. Lovely card. Enjoyed your shows yesterday and taken note of you hints and tips Not sure whether I would get the use out of the perfume bottles but love the corner and background stamps. Helen VofG

  31. Hello Julia, Thank you for the great shows and helpful tips. The samples were stunning and love the perfume bottle stamps. Today's card is so pretty and love the colours.
    Have a well deserved rest today.
    Take care.

I don't usually leave a comment as it's painful for me to type, but I just had to say today how much I love this card. Its elegant and classic and could be used in so many different colours to suit the persons taste. Thanks, love Sarah
