This is another demo card from Thursday's shows -
For the background, I started by randomly stamping the Ivy Corner Stamp (with the stamp in my hand) onto Milk Card using Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink. I repeated the process with the Botanical Spray Stamp and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I then spritzed with Arctic Blue Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist. Once dry, I popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Fubu Embossing Folder. I had to pass it through another twice to cover the background (this is quite a wide card!). I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Ink.
I masked off the frame on the Sunflower Delight Stamp and inked up with Jet Black Archival. I removed the masking tape and stamped, then embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Arctic Blue and Soft Moss Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mists and Chestnut Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist. I cut out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.
I cut a couple of Spellbinders Captivating Squares Dies out of Cobalt and Deep Blue Card.
I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Desert Daisies Stamp, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Devine Eleoquence Die and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I cut another of the same die out of Cobalt Card. I cut it down the middle and glued the pieces behind the sentiment panel offsetting them slightly.
I tied a bow using Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Crystal Sparkler.
I assembled the card as shown adding Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.
When I demoed this, I added a couple of dragonflies from the Couture Creations Dragonfly Set.
I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek from Tuesday's shows (quick turnaround this time). I'll still share the rest of my samples from last Thursday shows, don't worry. In the meantime, I've popped photos on Facebook here

Hi Julia, a beautiful card.ReplyDelete
Love this card Julia. Pat xReplyDelete
A good example that Sunflowers don't have to be yellow/orange. I have grown this year some red sunflowers. So might pinch that colour-scheme when I use the stamp.ReplyDelete
Lovely card Julia,love the strong blue colours together.ReplyDelete
Sorry I've been missing! Number of factors which I won't bore you with but here I am again!
I love today's card. The stamp is lovely and the colours beautiful too. I did manage to watch one of your shows online - live for the first time last week! For that reason I couldn't email in to the show.. It was really fun as usual with some lovely stamps. Thanks for all your hard work.
