Peace Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's sneak peek -

For the background, I stamped the Justrite Cornflower Damask Background onto Coconut White Card using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I stamped it a second time to extend the design. I dried the ink off a little with my heat tool and then inked around the edges with Scattered Straw. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Hope & Love Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Devine Eleoquence and inked through the die with Scattered Straw. I cut the largest 2 dies from the Justrite Vintage Labels 8 Die Set together out of Coconut White Card and inked through the dies with Scattered Straw.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon, added a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins and a White Crystal Sparkler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Morning Julia
    A beautiful bright card today. Looking forward to seeing your show and all the fabulous goodies.
    I won't be emailing in though - as you know I have lots of your wonderful cards I won on eBay!! There is one in particular that I would love to know how you made - so going to search through previous blogs to see if I can find it (it was all greens and blues of silk glitter, I think).
    Many thanks for all your hard work.
