Here's today's card -
Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped and embossed it a second time to extend the design. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
Spellbinders A2 Devine Eleoquence Die out of Soft Gold Card.
Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Vintage Bronze Button.
Cream 8mm Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.
I've taken early delivery of stock of the stamp designs for my next shows on June 11th. Sue's artist has done a fantastic job once again. He's designed some gorgeous frames for me and I've put some A5 Sentiment sets together to fit within the frames.
So, there are 4 frame stamps which contain an inner and an outer frame -
Mini Frames - Floral
Mini Frames - Scrollwork
There are 2 sets of sentiments to go with the frames. The first - All Occasions Sentiments contains 27 sentiments sized to fit the inner frames (please note a couple of them won't fit inside the Garden Frame - that one has the smallest space in the centre) -
The combinations amongst the frames and sentiments is huge. I can't wait to share my ideas with you, but I'm afraid you'll have to wait a couple of weeks, sorry!
I have also taken delivery of one of the new Couture Creations Embossing Folders that is on the show. It's called Grand Jo Jo and it's a little like Tied Together, I think so anyway.
Grand Jo Jo
That's all for now. Hope you have a good Bank Holiday Weekend - I'll be prepping as usual!

What a gorgeous card! It was one of my favourites from the Shows. It stood out as did a blue and white one
I don't have gold embossing powder so might have to remedy that! The background stamp is gorgeous too. They are all so clear.
The new stamps look beautiful too - good idea having different sizes. Look forward to seeing those in action - as it were!
Have a lovely weekend,
PS! My home is already full of stamps Julia but that made me laugh this morning !Love MyraReplyDelete
Love the blue and gold on this one Julia. The stamped image is so clean and clear. Looking forward to your next shows using the frames. Hope you get SOME time for yourself amongst the prepping xxxReplyDelete
Loving this card would never have thought of putting gold on blue, but works beautifully!
Now these new stamps and sentiments - WOW. Think I will treat myself to some sentiments and loving the Grand Jo Jo folder. Then that will be my budget for June - as I have a holiday and another in the future to start saving for. But a girl can never have too many things in her crafty stash!!
Enjoy your prepping.
