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.

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.

  13. Hello Julia
    thought it was super how you showed the versatility of the new stamps by masking and splitting the designs and sentiments up on your cards.
    And loved how you created the flower also, I always love to see that demo x

  20. Hi Julia
    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.
