Shows on Create & Craft today

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 8am with Nigel and 2pm with Martyn. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design (this one is not a repeating pattern). I rubbed some Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the surface. I left it to dry for a couple of minutes and then inked around the edges with Peach Bellini Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut 2 of one of the border dies from the Couture Creations Chandeliers Set out of Soft Peach Card. I inked through the die with Peach Bellini.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Peach Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Square Plaque Die and inked through the die with Peach Bellini. I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One out of Soft Peach Card and inked through the die with Peach Bellini.

I cut a piece of White Tulle and tied a knot in the centre. I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Organza. I rubbed a White Organza Ribbon Rose into the Peach Bellini Ink Pad to change the colour,

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

See you later!

Thanks for stopping by.

  31. Hi Julia

    So pleased I set the sky box as slept through most of today. Half way through wat hing second show and really enjoying the demos- especially the label flower (will be trying that with a similar Spellbinders die. Agree with discussion about machine size, have spent 3 & 1/2 years playing 'embossed card jigsaw' (hiding the 2 sheets joined with carefully placed ribbons/ die cuts/ borders. Will be my Christmas present to myself! Need to convince Mr WheelyBad that I need both machines though! So many machines with pros and cons it'll take me 6 months to choose one! *Sigh* The life of a crafter, ay?!

    Crafty hugs,

    T x
