Shows on Create & Craft Today

Hi Bloggers.

I have a double dose of Dean today on Create & Craft at 9am and 3pm - hope you can join me.

Just a polite reminder that my auctions of card packs to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support end on ebay this evening.

Here's today's card -

For the background, with the stamp in my hand, I stamped Phill Martin's Vintage Sheet Music Background around the edges of a piece of Milk Card using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Seedless Preserves. I rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the embossed surface. I let it dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Argentine Tango Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29 and inked through the die with Seedless Preserves. I cut the largest die out of the Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader Die Set from Rich Plum Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step By Step Sentiment Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Black Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 17 and inked through the die with Seedless Preserves.

I stamped Phill's Vintage Sheet Music Background using Seedless Preserves and cut 3 of the plain flowers from Sue's Classic Rose Die Set. I made a flower and cut a couple of leaves out of Rich Plum Card using Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Comsic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

See you later!

Thanks for stopping by.
