Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by randomly inking through the Lattice Mask with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. It's hard to see but I then I randomly stamped the ornate swirly design from the Justrite Grateful Hearts Stamp Set using Spun Sugar Distress Ink. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped a section of the Rose Corner Stamp with Victorian Velvet. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Spun Sugar. I cut 3 corners out of  Pearlescent Card using Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Sweet Hearts Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Lace Hearts and inked through the die with Spun Sugar. I cut the other large heart die from the set out of Pearlescent Card.

I made a scrunched flower using Spellbinders Bossom 5 and touched the edges with Spun Sugar. I cut some leaves using Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a 5mm White Pearl to the die cuts in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Stunning card thanks Tracy w x

  34. Hi Julia,
    Love the card! Not sure about the spelling of the sentiment. I read what you said about spelling local to you, however, as a teacher who taught in primary school - spelling is important and if we use various spellings of one word we are in trouble! Would defend your right to say Mom or Mam to the death , just worry about spelling! This could land me in huge trouble but I can't help that.
    Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration.
    Love Myra

  35. Hi Julia, A truly pretty card, the background, as always is stunning, and loving the die-cuts, beautiful, flower and colours are so pretty. Love it all !!
