A 'ruff' time

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped some Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue onto my craft sheet and picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used it to 'ink up' the Pawprint Lattice Background Stamp and stamped it 4 times to cover the card. I put it aside for a few minutes whilst I cleaned the glue off my stamp using a Grime Boss. I then added Dark Bronze Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter to the stamped area. Tip - you can cover any joins in the background that aren't perfect with the other components of your card! I inked the very edges of the background with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Coconut White Card. I dusted the Triple Scallop Mask with my Anti Static Bag and added it to the adhesive. I rubbed Sahara Gold Polished Silk Glitter into the exposed adhesive. I brushed off the excess glitter and removed the mask to reveal the reamining adhesive. I added Dark Bronze Polished Silk Glitter and brushed off the excess. I added a strip to the background as shown.

I stamped the Toby stamp using Flake & Glitter Glue and added Dark Bronze Polished Silk Glitter. I cut it out using a die from Sue's Innsbruck Die Set and inked through the die with Pumice Stone.

I stamped the sentiment from the Pawprints on Your Heart Clear Stamp Set using Flake & Glitter Glue and added Dark Bronze Polished Silk Glitter. I cut it out using a Justrite Antique Labels One Die and inked through the die with Pumice Stone.

I tied a bow using Brown Solid Satin Centre Band Ribbon and added a Vintage Black Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Choco Brown PVA around the edges.

  13. Hi Julia
    I just love these stamps especially yesterday's as I wasn't able to comment on it for some reason. I set the recorder for the Tool Shed and Tuesday's 2 shows. However, for some reason the recorder didn't record any of them. Luckily I came home just after three and was able to recor the show manually. It records other shows just not Creative Expressions. It's obviously got the hump with the company. I hope it gets over its strop soon.

  14. Great card Julia, love the sentiment.

  15. Morning Julia, This card would bring a smile to someone's face, who was feeling under the weather or was having a bad time. Love it !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  16. Hi Julia

    Lovely card, the colours would be good for a mens/ boys card.

    Love the technique with the glitter and the mask, I don't have this exact one but sure it'd work with the others I have.

  17. Hi Julia, lovely card, and the sentiment is a much needed middle of the road stamp if that makes sense .
