Birthdays Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I'd start sharing some cards from Sunday's Toolshed on Create & Craft. It's a bit early but I have more shows next Tuesday so I thought I would start today. Today's card features the Couture Creations Fancy Frame Die which was on John's shows last week.

The background is a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the new Couture Creations Dandelion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I ran some Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue around the edges and dipped them into Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles. I put aside to dry.

I cut the Couture Creations Fancy Frame out of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Birthday Florals Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies. I ran some CS Dries Clear Glue around the edges and dipped into Diamond Sprinkles. I put aside to dry.

I cut the Justrite Offset SVG file a couple of times using my Cricut Explore. I stamped the flowers from the Justrite Birthday Florals Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival.

Once the glue with the Diamond Sprinkles were dry, I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

I have some auctions of card samples ending this evening on ebay. Raising funds for Help for Heroes this time. I also added some packs last night which will end next week. Please click on the ebay link in the top menu of this blog to go and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. No, it's not on either of my shows. I wanted it on the Toolshed but John had it on his shows last week. There's no stock in our warehouse so you'll have to hunt it down in a craft shop or online.

  5. Morning Julia, a gorgeous card the fancy frame die is beautiful.
