Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

The Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint is now back in stock in my Amazon Store with some other colours which you can find here. I've also stocked the Pearl Sprays that Sue used on her shows last weekend. Also new in stock are a a couple of new Couture Creations Embossing Folders which are on my next Toolshed Shows - Small Dots and Asian Weave. Both these designs have tiny repeating patterns which mean you can easily line them up when extending the design.

Just a little reminder that some of the auctions of my Heartfelt Creations dies & stamps on ebay end this evening with the remainder ending tomorrow. Click on the ebay link in the menu at the top of this blog to go and have a look.

Another card with the sentiment stamps today. I love how you can make so many easy peasy, different combo cards with this series of stamps.

For the background, I inked through one of the designs on the Floral Elements Mask in each corner using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The design joined up to form a frame. I then ran it though the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the Congratulations Stamp twice using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped the Best Wishes Stamp, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Detail Powder. I cut one of the Congratulations out complete and then just the panels out of the other and the Best Wishes. I inked around the edges of the Congratulations image panel and the Best Wishes sentiment panel with Faded Jeans.

I cut a Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One and at the emboss stage added the Spellbinders Butterfly Garden Grand Impressabilities. I inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I added the complete Congratulations image using 3d Foam, then the Congratulations image panel and the Best Wishes sentiment panel on top, again using 3d Foam.

I tied a bow using Blue/White Striped Grograin and added a White Crystal Sparkler and some White Pearl String.

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

Sue has her second Wedding Show this morning at 10am. Try to tune in if you can.

Thanks for stopping by.

  23. Hi Julia,
    Another lovely card! I love that ribbon - the pale blue is my favourite and it looks so fresh with the white dazzler and pearl string! You've got me hooked on masks! I hardly used the two I did have and have since bought more thanks to your lovely ideas! They are such good value for money and so versatile
    Thanks again, hope you've had a lovely sunny day - been super here!
    Love Myra

  24. Hi Julia
    Apologies for the delay .... Loving this card and I adore those Decorative Labels 1 dies.
    Didn't get to see Sue's show yesterday and was disappointed C&C didn't do a catch-up video - although my friend said that she saw it and thought Sue didn't look quite so happy as Dawn was with her - maybe? (Not my favouritte presenter)
    Anyway I see that there is a catch up from this mornings show with Nigel - so will watch later when I've got a cuppa in my hand.
    Is it true that Phill M drinks a lot of tea - always seems to be mashing a cuppa??

    Anyway - loving this mask too - so when I get home might just take a trip to your Amazon store.

  25. Hello Julia, A gorgeous card, love the colours, thanks to you I am using masks more and the results are fantastic. Watched Sue's great shows, you are both so inspirational. Hope you has a lovely family day yesterday.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx

  26. Hi Julia a lovely fresh and delicate card love the colour and really like how you have used the pearl string in the bow.
