Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all the emails and comments yesterday. Thanks for all the orders in my Amazon Store too - that'll keep me busy this morning!

Here's today's card -

Hopefully the shimmer of the background showed up on the camera yesterday. For the background, I popped a little Azure Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to 'ink' up the Vintage Wallpaper Background Stamp. I needed to stamp it 4 times to cover the whole area - not perfect but you can't see the joins! I love the shimmer from the paints on black card.

I stamped the Best Wishes Stamp onto Black Card twice using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut one out complete and on the other I cut the 2 individual panels out. I coloured the image panel using a little of the Azure Shimmer Paint and Pink Ultra and Golden Pear from the Garden Tones Cosmic Shimmer Waterlour Paint Set. I cut a Spellbinders Pearl Effects out of Black Card and a Spellbinders Diamond Effects out of Coconut White Card.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Black Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and pierced around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Morning Julia, only managed to catch a bit of your last show yesterday due to the carpet fitters turning up late! Lovely card today. Love Jean xxx

  6. Morning Julia
    Great shows yesterday. So I couldn't resist the paints - I expected them to be sold out when I eventually made my order. Also Spellbinders dies x 2 - such good offers,
    and of course a set of the Singles. So can't wait to receive them.
    Meanwhile I'm still playing with the texture pastes and that Swoosh mask - brilliant fun.
    Shame I've got to go to work today.

    I love the new shimmer paints, will have to add to my wish list. Love the background but it would be a bit dark for me. Would love to see it in a different colour.

  21. Good morning Julia, sorry I missed your shows yesterday. Liking the background stamp but the card is a little too dark for me. Best wishes Jackie D
