Be Mine

Hi Bloggers.

A mix of cards over the next couple of weeks as my Toolshed which was supposed to be this weekend has been put back to May 11th (but could change again!).

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped my tan mat onto my base plate. I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my anti static bag and placed it dusted side up on my tan mat. I inked up the Heart Confetti Mask with Perfect Medium and placed it inked side down on top of the dusted card. I added the pink embossing plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern. I added Cosmic Shimmer Blue Maroon Aurora Embossing Powder tapped off the excess and heat set. I then covered it with a piece of Self Adhesive Sheet and added Glass Micro Beads. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One out of Rich Plum Card. I stamped the heart frame and the sentiment from the Justrite Sweet Hearts Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Blue Maroon Aurora. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die and inked thorugh the die with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I cut the other Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die and after the emboss stage left the card in the die. Then I stamped through the die with the Creative Expressions Rose Corner Stamp. I cleaned the excess in from the die, made sure the image was dry and then inked though the die with Seedless Preserves.

I made some flowers and leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Loving the card today. Love the background technique. Think I might just try a version of my own and love the Sweet Juliet flowers - I don't use them enough.
    How annoying to have the Toolshed postponed - I bet you were prepped and ready to go too!!
    Enjoy your day - hope it brightens up as looks pretty miserable out there at the moment - still it is early yet.
