Heartfelt Thanks

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Latte Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the Justrite Sculpted Leaves Background using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I trimmed it, inked around the edges with Latte ink and matted onto Vintage Gold Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Rose Bouquet Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Tag Dies and inked through the die with Latte Ink.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Ivory and 2 lengths of Toffee Beige Vintage Ribbon. I added some Gold Tulle at the back of it and a Bronze Vintage Button to cover the knot. I also added a couple of Cream Pearl Decorative Stick Pins and some Cream Pearl String.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of Cream Mini Pearl Swirls, some Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

I have some lovely new stamps in my Amazon Store which will be on my shows on August 28th. The Creative Expressions Design Team are working with these stamps this month. Be sure to check out their projects via the Creative Expressions Blog here. Here's a look at the designs -

Rose Entwined

Anemone Planter

Sunflower Delight


Desert Daisies

Cala Lily Trio

Regal Iris

There's also an additional Christmas stamp that will be on my shows on August 15th.

Seasons Greetings
