Get Well Soon

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at Domino Crafts yesterday. Lovely so see so many familiar faces.

Here's today's card -

For the background, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Rose Corner using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I repeated the process with one of the stamps from the Love & Cherish Set and Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Sunshade Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky.

I cut the Couture Creations Lacy 8 Die out of Sky Blue Card. I put aside the outer frame die cut for another project. I snipped away the flower design from the centre of the die cut leaving a decorative circular frame.

I stamped the sentiment from the Everyday Expressions Stamp Set onto Sky Blue Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Royal Oval Die. I cut the same die out of Coconut White Card.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I applied some Stormy Sky Distress Ink to a White Organza Ribbon Rose using Cut n Dry Foam and added it to the bow. I added a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins to the back of the bow.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Morning Julia and all crafters. What a really beautiful card to greet us on this (at the moment) murky Sunday morning, hopefully it will brighten up later.

    I love the technique used here, I saw you doing it on C&C, this is one of those dies that I must get, it is very versatile, and the colours used are wonderful, reminds me of Wedgewood.

    Have a great Sunday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx
