As promised today I'm sharing a sneak peek from tomorrow's shows. I thought I'd give you a two fer to give you more of a flavour of the new stamps I have on the shows.
I've popped all of the new stamps onto ebay - you can see them here.
Here's the first card -
Uplifting Thoughts. I have the Justrite Clear Stamp Sets - Celebrations Sentiments and Typewriter Sentiments on the shows. Lots of the sentiments in those sets fit the smaller frames.
Anyway, back to this card - For the background,I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Heart Lattice Embossing Folder. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over. I left it for 5 minutes to dry and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe - this makes the surface smoother and shinier.
Wrought Iron Frame using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B die set. I cut 2 Couture Creations Lotus Filet. I measured them against the frame and trimmed a piece from both Lotus Filet die cuts. I joined them together with some double sided tape and hid the join by wrapping some White Crochet Ribbon around the centre and around the background.
Here's the second card -
Elegant Mini Frames Set using Jet Black Archival and added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder (I did not heat set at this point). I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Celebrations Sentiments Clear Stamp Set in the centre of the frame, again using Jet Black Archival. I added Clear Powder and heat set the lot. I cut out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B. I cut the next 2 sizes of the same die set out of Black and Coconut White Card.
Hope you've enjoyed your two fer sneak peek.
Thanks for stopping by.

Morning Julia, two lovely cards today, do love those stamps! Looking forward to tomorrows shows. Love Jean xxxReplyDelete
What a beautiful set of cards. How do you get your matting layers so evenly placed? Do you do it by eye or do you use a guide of some sort?ReplyDelete
Two beauties Julia. Lovely frame stamps and sentiments. Will be watching tomorrow. Pat xReplyDelete
Both are stunning I made the mistake (when I was very green around the edges!) of buying the 5x7 matting basics because that was the size card blanks I'd bought Seems now, that I need to invest in the A2's because there appears to be far more intricate dies that match the A2's Ho hum, more on my Need List!ReplyDelete
Tow lovely cards can't choose a favourite, love them both.
