My Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I misted through the Floral Frame Mask with Cosmic Shimmer Purple Orchid Vintage Ink Spray Mist. I inked the very edges of the background with Cool Peri Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Taylored Expressions Stargazer Lily Bouquet using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Purple Orchid and Arctic Blue Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mists, Topaz and Malachite Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints and Warm White Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint.

I cut it out using the 2 largest dies in Sue's Decorative Frames from the Italian Collection and inked through the die with Cool Peri.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Majestic Labels 8 die and inked through the die with Cool Peri.

I assembled the card as shown adding a 5mm White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac PVA around the edges.

Don't forget to stop by later to see if you're the winner of the blog candy.

Thanks for stopping by.

  32. Hi Julia,
    What a lovely card! It is so soft and pretty and certainly brought a smile to my face on this rather cold, dull morning!
    Your flowers could easily be mistaken for a topper rather than something you stamped and coloured yourself! They are gorgeous .
    Love the colours chosen - I love it all.

  33. How lovely, I would be chuffed to receive this card
    Hugs to all

  41. Good morning Julia,
    I do like your lilies card that you have made as it is lovely and light and not too bright. Everything compliments it just perfectly. I do like the lilac that you have used as it is so soft and against the white and the delicate background it just looks so nice. Thank you Julia for inspiring once more,
    Love and crafty hugs
