Hi Bloggers.

I'm up at Creative Expressions HQ today running my first workshops of the year. It's going to be a fun day.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by popping some Phill Martin Graceful Pink Mister onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used this as my ink pad and with the stamp in my hand randomly stamped the Justrite Quilted Circles Background over a piece of Coconut White Card. I misted a little more Graceful Pink Mister onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in a little Graceful Pink Mica Powder. I added this to my ink pad and with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Sweet Lace Background. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and then edged it with Graceful Pink Twinkles.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Ornate Happiness Squares Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Graceful Pink Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ornate Squares and edged with Graceful Pink Twinkles.

I cut 2 of the largest die from the same die set out of Coconut White Card and rubbed Graceful Pink Gilding Wax over them.

Iassembled the card as shown adding a Black Pearl to each corner and some dots of Graceful Pink PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. Hi Julia

    Pink and I have an odd relationship, I'm quite fussy about types of shade etc. I like the this shade though. I love your backgrounds every time. This all works though it isn't the type of card (theme) I usually make.

    Have fun at CE HQ today.
