Keep in Touch

Hi Bloggers.

Last demo day on our Road Trip today at Craftworld in Glasgow. It's going to be busy!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

For the panels, I stamped the Justrite Diamond Filigree Background a couple of times using the Stonewashed Ink. I cut it into panels and matted onto Cobalt Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Pansies in Spring Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die out of Cobalt Card.

I tied a bow using Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain. I cut a couple of flowers out of Cobalt Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Blooms Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cobalt around the edges.

A while ago when I did the Justrite One Day Wonder on Create & Craft, the Rose Postcard Background was very popular and sold out. I noticed when we called into Craftworld to set up yesterday that they have some in stock. You can get them by visiting the store or online here.
Also, I noticed at the weekend that the Papeterie had some of Sue's Basketweave Embossing Folders in stock. They don't have an online store but you can call them on 01224 802337. Hope this info is useful.

Thanks for stopping by.
