Hi Bloggers.

Thanks so much for all your emails and comments yesterday about the shows. Much appreciated as always.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Persian Sea Aurora Embossing Powder. I placed a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet over the image and cut out using Spellbinders Adorning Squares. I did not emboss. I removed the cover sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Persian Sea Aurora. I added a piece of Double Sided Adhesive Sheet over the top and cut out using Justrite Vintage Sentiment Tag Dies. I removed the cover sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles.

I tied a bow using Blue Satin Edged Organza, added some White Pearl String, a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins and a White Crystal Sparkler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia.
    Thank you the shows were great, as were all the cards and demos. My computer is making an awful noise. I think it has had its day. Take care Kitty

  2. Loved yesterday's shows and love this card which would make a beautiful Christmas card with a star in lace of the doily. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  3. Hi Julia. I love your card today, the Doily stamp is gorgeous, so delicate and pretty. I'm glad to hear that your shows went well yesterday, luckily I recorded them as we had unexpected visitors, which was a wonderful surprise but it meant I missed your shows. I will enjoy watching them later on today though : ) I hope you can grab some rest before starting on your next project : ) Take care.

  4. Morning Julia
    Fantastic shows yesterday and your cards and demos were brilliant.
    All I needed was some the set of four embossing powders and I managed to get the pack of assorted coloured card! Have still to watch the first part of Tool Shed - just a matter of getting hold of the remotes!! LOL
    You deserve a well earned rest.

  31. Beautiful card Julia. Loved yesterday's shows with you and Sue.

  33. Stunning card,gorgeous colours.

  34. Hi Julia,
    Watched the Toolshed last night! Loved both demonstrations I particularly liked the blue/gold card ! I will be giving that one a try! Have kept recording so I can refer to it again - not just for that card - I loved loads. Sue and you work so well together and it is lovely to see ideas from both of you for the same products. Justrite make some gorgeous stamps - spoilt for choice really.
    Very warm sunny day here again in my corner of Lancashire. I craft with kids on Mondays - thought last Monday was last one - was wrong got to go today as well!
    Keeps me out of mischief .
    Thanks for all the hard work you put into yesterday - will watch 5pm show this evening all being well.
    Take care, love Myra

  35. Hi Julia

    You and Sue both featuring the doily stamp in different ways today and both stunning efforts. So good to see how stamps can be made to look different. I just hope when I'm back at that table I can demonstrate that I have actually learned something from you.

    This and the rose stamps are must haves... so was everything else on the show!

    Thanks again for great shows yesterday, it was good I was watching in bed on the computer as we had 1 1/2 hours of thunderstorms during the midday show so the sky box went on strike! Had I not been in bed I'd have missed it! You were both brilliant and I loved your techniques with the paint- a must try!!!

    Anyhoo, I need to go count my pennies for those neeeeded stamps!

    Crafty hugs
