I have shows today on Create & Craft at 9am with Martyn and 3pm with Dave. Hope you can join me - I hope to tempt you with some lovely goodies! As this post goes live I will be well on my way to the studios - early start for me!
Here's today's card -
Back to the card - For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Fauna Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I popped a little Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked a little up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and rubbed it over the embossed surface. This gives a pearl effect to the card and dries almost immediately. Not easy to see on the photo, I know, but hopefully the cameras will pick it up today.
I stamped the Desert Daisies Stamp 3 times onto Cobalt Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I trimmed them down using a trimmer leaving a border.
I have had some help with the samples on today's shows so I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy Heaton, Kerry Hicton and Neil Burley from the Creative Expressions Design Team. All of the Creative Expression Design Team have been blogging samples made with this range of stamps this month. For more inspiration, be sure to visit the Creative Expressions News Blog and scroll down to see all of their fabulous projects.
See you later!
Thanks for stopping by.
