Missing You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's 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 on to my Craft Sheet. I picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and rubbed it over the embossed surface.

I stamped the Desert Daisies Stamp onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. I used Scarlet Sunset, Orange Gold, Yellow Sun and Summer Grass from the Brights Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 8.

I cut a Spellbinders Devine Eleoquence Die out of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Mystical Embrace.

I tied a bow using Black Crochet Ribbon and added a Black Crystal Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

The Christmas Workshops at Creative Expressions HQ in Kettering is full except for 1 space in the afternoon. I will be repeating the same workshops the following week on Wednesday 29th October. Please telephone Tracey on 01536 481778 if you would like to book a place.

Here's a reminder of the projects.

Morning Workshop 10am till 1pm £30.00. Heavily die based, no stamping!

Afternoon Workshop 2pm till 4pm £20.00. Mix of stamping and die cutting.

It seems I mis-calculated the charging period for my Amazon Store and I've just been charged the subscription for the next month. So, I won't been closing the store this Friday but some time during the week commencing 6th October. I'll keep you updated on that.

Thanks for stopping by.
