Another Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I have another sneak peek for you today. This card features a new Justrite Clear Stamp Set (so pretty!) and a new Justrite Background Stamp (fab to use with Gilding Flakes).

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I stamped the new Justrite Garden Trellis Background using Black Perfect Medium and brushed Enchanted Blue Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Delicate Lace Mica Spray Set over the image. I wiped away the excess with a dry wet wipe and matted the background onto Cobalt Card.

The image is actually 2 stamps from the new Justrite Flower For Your Thoughts Clear Stamp Set. I stamped the flourish/leaves first using Fern Green Archival. I then stamped the flowers using Cobalt Archival. I cut out using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls to the corners and I pierced around the edges.

Tracey tells me that the workshops on 3rd February at Creative Expressions HQ are almost full and the ones on 24th are filling up. Places are limited to just 12 per session. Details on the Workshops Page link at the top of this blog. Workshops at Yardley Gobion are limited to 20 each day.

I've added another page in the top menu of this blog with the Videos that I've made with Sue Wilson and a couple I made at home some time ago. Just click on the link in the menu to go and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.
