Because I Care

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your emails and comments yesterday. Much appreciated as always.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Dresses Corner Stamp in each corner using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Pink Embossing Powder. I inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Stamp Set onto Blush Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Pastel Pink Powder. I cut it out using the Couture Creations Square Plaque Die and inked through the die with Tattered Rose. I cut a Couture Creations Cameo Set die out if Coconut White Card.

I made a rosette out of Blush Card using Couture Creations Cappuccino Die. I cut the die twice and then a third time - I only used half of the third one.


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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  6. Hi Julia. Thank you for the great happy shows yesterday. I do wish more guests were like you and Sue and would look and sound like they enjoy what they do. Your enthusiasm is wonderful and inspires me every time. I think that is another part of the reason why both you and Sue are so popular. Of course your talent at making such beautiful cards like todays is also a big factor too : )
    This card is so light and delicate. I love the rosette and the gorgeous colours. I have already asked Sue if you two would consider coming to Oxford/Swindon area next year, please.
    Take care

  10. Lovely card today Julia, so light and delicate. Enjoyed yesterday's shows and you certainly seem to have fun when you are on TV. Tough choice today - crafting or Andy Murray at Wmbledon - I'll try to have a bit of both! Happy crafting everyone!

  12. Loved the shows yesterday particularly with Nigel. I am slightly young than you but love my 80s music! Hope you meet up with your friend you haven't seen for thirty years. Ironically was in hairdressers yesterday and a friend from school who I hadn't seen for twenty six years sat beside me xxxx

  20. The rosette looks really pretty I saw you do this on a previous show and following your instructions they're a lot easier to make than trying to form one from a straight strip of paper/card They always "ping" at the wrong time and can never get them to "stick!"

  23. Hello Julia, A stunning beautiful card, love the delicate colours and the rosette. Your shows were great, really enjoyed them, you have such fun, totally agree with Mrs B. I too saw George M on his 25 years tour he was amazing. Nigel made me smile when he said you and Sue will be like Thelma and Louise on your road trip.
    Take care.

    Another stunning card today. It looks so delicate. I don't think I've seen the die that you have used to make the rosette before?. Must have a look to see if I can find it.

  33. Hi Julia, this is gorgeous. Have your shows recorded and hope to watch this evening, time allowing! Have to watch before the weeken,d. Cos my son arrives from Australia for a week so I'll be otherwise occupied, delightfully so but no crafting will be happening during that time!
