Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I sprayed some Phill Martin Graceful Peach Mister onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I used this as my ink pad and stamped the Justrite Doily One Stamp several times onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Quilted Flower Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I edged with Graceful Peach Twinkles and put aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Anchors Away Stamp Set and the frame from the Justrite Ornate Happiness Squares Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Graceful Peach Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ornate Squares and edged with Graceful Peach Twinkles.

 I cut a Spellbinders Asian Motifs Die out of Peach Card and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut the largest die in the set out of Coconut White Card and rubbed Graceful Peach Gilding Wax over. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Curled Vines Die Set. I rubbed Graceful Peach Gilding Wax over. I popped some Graceful Peach Twinkles onto my Craft Sheet, picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and dabbed it over the leaves.

I popped some Warm White Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk Paint onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in a little Graceful Peach Mica Powder. I used this to colour a piece of White Crochet Ribbon using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. Once dry, I made a flower with half of it cut lengthways.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. Lovely card Julia - I got my Phill goodies at the weekend, so this card is really telling me to get them out and use them! Two more sleeps until my Kettering adventure. It will be an adventure, although I have been to Kettering 2 or 3 times in the past (my SIL parents lived there), it has been a while since I have been, I just remember windy roads, but to make it worse I will be driving a strange car (as my car is in for repairs following my car accident before Christmas).

    1. Anyone else from this blog going, that I should look out for?
