Pamper Yourself

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 10am with Joanne and 3pm with Dawn. Please note time changes. Hope you can join me.

All the new Singles Stamps are now in stock in my Amazon Store (please excuse the photos - they're up the right way in my folder!). You can find them within the Singles Section here. There's a slight delay with the background stamp. It should be here tomorrow.

Here's today;s card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Happy Birthday Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I stamped the Engraved Elegance image using Cosmic Shimmer Steel Blue Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Steel Blue Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire.

I stamped the Justrite Rose Garden Background using Chipped Sapphire. I stamped the Perfume Background twice using Chipped Sapphire. I cut 2 sizes of flowers out using the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die Set - 2 each of each size from each background. I shaped the flowers and stacked them up securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I added a Cream 8mm Pearl to the centre of each. I cut some leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown, adding some more Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue around the edges.

See you later.

Thanks for stopping by.
