Let's get Together

Hi Bloggers.

I must admit I was totally confused with some of the comments yesterday. My trip with Sue doesn't start till Wednesday. I wasn't with her in Wales yesterday. The stops on our trip are detailed in the left hand side bar of this blog.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Wrought Iron Corner into each corner using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Blue Embossing Powder. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Irish Clubs 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.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Pastel Blue Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Square Plaque and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I cut another Square Plaque and again inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I cut a Couture Creations Cappuccino Die out of Periwinkle Card and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I tied a bow using Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added an Ivory Organza Ribbon Rose.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Lovely card today Julia and it would look good in many other colours. Please can you and/or Sue come to Surrey for a demo. We have much less craft down here than you seem to get in the North. Even Ally Pally is a long trek round the M25! I know lots of us would love to see you both.

  26. Hi Julia

    What a gorgeous card. I love the stamp, that's going on the list for sure and the pastel blue embossing powder is not what I imagined, I really like it!

    I'm organising my stamp storage, absolute hell! 2 12x12 boxes into 2 or 3 lever arch files. So list stamps are going to wait until I'm a little more sorted out (I know this won't be the case but I must try) I'm stamping onto copy paper, laminating it and the corresponding stamps stick/ cling to the laminate. Decorating the folders is fun and I can do a little at a time. Have a birthday card to do for Saturday so hoping that'll be done soon, the bonus is as I use the stamps I can file them away. The justrite ones are ready to pop straight in. Even the wooden stamps will get a page detailing which box they are in, plus I get to decorate the boxes! Such fun although the speed I go it could take months. At least it means Mr Wheelybad will get to watch the TV while C&C is on the computer with me.

    After I find my glasses. I could be making a birthday card in prescription sunglasses!

    Crafty hugs

    Love & Hugs
