Every Moment

Hi Bloggers.

Oops - I was a bit tired when I wrote this last night and missed that it was scheduled for 5 past 8 this evening! Sorry folks!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I randomly stamped the Botanical Spray Stamp onto Milk Card using Latte Adirondack Dye Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Bark Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Latte Ink.

I stamped the Regal Iris Stamp using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the frame in using Chestnut Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist. I coloured the flower using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. I used Summer Grass and Orange Gold from the Brights Set and Pastel Yellow from the Pastels Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles and inked through the die with Latte Ink.

I placed the middle sized die from Sue's Cordoba Die Set inside the largest die from Sue's Granada Die Set and cut out from Ginger Card. Using my trimmer, I cut out a trip from the middle section of the die cut. I joined the two pieces together again and hid the join with Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Bronze Vintage Button.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Anemone Planter Stamp, again using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ornate Squares and inked through the die with Latte Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One out of Ginger Card.

I cut a Couture Creations Beautiful Butterfly Die out of Ginger Card, shaped it using my fingers and added some 3mm Cream Pearls.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
