I have shows today on Create & Craft at 11am with Martyn and 6pm with Dawn. Hope you can join me.
Here's today's card -
For the background, I stamped the Ivy Corner stamp in each corner using Forest Moss Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Ooh La La Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Forest Moss.
I misted a piece of Milk Card with Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist in Soft Moss. Once dry, I dusted it with my anti static bag and stamped the Garden Collage Stamp using Jet Black Archival. I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I roughly cut it out using scissors and then inked around the edges with Forest Moss. I stamped the top left-hand corner of the stamp again. I cut the little butterfly out. I dabbed a little Soft Moss Vintage Ink Spray Mist onto my craft sheet, added a little Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Mica Powder and painted the little butterfly. Once dry, I shaped it and added it to the original image.
I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Branching Out Dies out of Green Card. At the emboss stage I added the Counterpane Mask.
I misted another piece of Milk Card with the Soft Moss Mister. I stamped the sentiment from the Single Sentiments Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Seville Die
from the Sue Wilson Spanish Collection and inked through the die with Forest Moss.
I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Black Silky Crush Ribbon
and added a Crystal Sparkler
I assembled the card as shown adding a Black 8mm Pearl
in each corner and some dots of Black Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA
around the edges.
Hope you can join me later.
Thanks for stopping by.

Not sure about this one Julia. The stamp is very busy and then to me the sage green and the teal clash. Might look different when I see you later this morning. best wishes Jackie DReplyDelete
There's no teal on this cardDelete

Not sure about the collage stamp, but the background, die cut and embellishments are fab. Will be watching at 6.00 pm ccReplyDelete
Stunning card today and I love the stamp. hope you have a great day at C & C. Shame your on at 6.00 as I won't be able to record the show. Mind you I don't mind missing Dawn though.
I too am unsure about today's card! I like the ivy corners and the little butterfly is lovely. Like the colours but the main stamp is not for me! Good job, as I can't afford everything!
Safe travel, love Myra
Great card Julia, love the stamps, I ordered the Butterfly and Dragonfly stamps as they are divine.ReplyDelete
