Shows on Create & Craft Today

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows on Create & Craft today at 10am and 3pm. As I said yesterday, it's a Justrite Stamps & Dies Sale Show with some Spellbinders at sale prices too. There are different stamps/dies on each show. Yesterday's card was from the 10am show. Today's card is from the 3pm show.

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Quilted Flower Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink and then rubbed Graceful Peach Gilding Wax from the Cosmic Shimmer Colours by Phill Martin Collection all over the embossed design. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

For the panels, I sprayed some Graceful Peach Ink Spray Mist onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam to make myself an 'ink pad' (you could also use Cut n Dry Felt). I then spayed a little more onto my Craft Sheet and mixed this with a little Graceful Peach Mica Powder. I added this to my 'ink pad' and used it to stamp the Justrite Quilted Circles Background twice on to Coconut White Card. I cut the panels to 1 1/2" x 5", inked around the edges with Dried Marigold and matted onto Peach Card.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Enjoy the Day Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Graceful Peach Embossing Powder. I cut them both out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4 Dies and inked through the sentiment die with Dried Marigold. I cut a Spellbinders Ornate Squares Die out of Peach Card. I cut it in half and added to both sides at the back of the frame die cut.

I cut Sue's Grand Vinery Dies (were on Phill's shows on Monday or available from me on ebay here) out of Peach Card. I popped some Graceful Peach Twinkles onto my Craft Sheet. Using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam I dabbed it all over the leaves. I made a couple of flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon (on next Tuesday's shows or from me on ebay here).

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Graceful Peach PVA around the edges.

Hope you can join me later.
