Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek from tomorrow's shows.

For the background, I stamped the Creative Expressions Scented Corner in the 2 right hand corners using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 M-Bossabilities Folder. I added some Waterfall Stickles to the spots in the corners and all around the edges of the background piece.

I stamped the Merano Glass perfume bottle using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and embossed using Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I cut a Spellbinders Detailed Scallops out of Periwinkle Card and added a White 8mm Pearl to each corner.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image, again using Faded Jeans and embossed with Clear Powder, I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4 Dies and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I tied a bow using Blue/White Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I pressed a Dazzler Setting into Perfect Medium, added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powder Set and heat set. I added a Clear Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Summer Blue around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  31. Love this feminine, delicate looking card Julia. Very pretty colouring too. More to add to my wanted list! Pat x

  32. Hi Julia,a beautiful card. Love the way the Perfume bottles in the Singles range have a sentiment, border, a corner and an unmounted background. Will be recording tomorrow's show.

  33. Hi Julia,
    Another gorgeous card - and in my favourite colourway. I use all the blue in my paper pack first! Do you ever stock the blue just on it's own? Looking forward to learning loads more tomorrow! All being well! My parcel with the rose stamps etc arrived quickly and safely! Thank you. Looking forward to playing with those later!
    Boring Monday jobs first and then I work with children after school on Mondays.
    Rewarding but tiring! Great though to encourage their creativity - even if some are a little strange! The projects - not the children!
    I'd better go before I dig a deeper hole!
    Love Myra

  34. Wow, a real stunner today. I shall set the recorder ready for tomorrows shows. Kind regards Joanne K x

  35. Hi Julia,

    Love & Hugs
