Thanks so Much

Hi Bloggers.

I'm on the Create & Craft Craft Clinic today at 11am for 2 hours. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped a little Azure Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet, picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and inked through the Floral Frame Mask onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I also inked around the very edges of the card with the paint.

I cut 4 of the largest dies from the Couture Creations Cameo Die Set out of Sky Blue Card, inking through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I scored each of them several times across the centre, made a cut down one side to the centre and mountain and valley folded them. I then glued them together using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to make a rosette.

I cut 2 of the smallest dies from the Couture Creations Cameo Die Set out of Coconut White Card, inking through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I made another rosette as before.

I cut the largest die from the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Die Set out of Sky Blue Card and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I cut the next size down from the same die set out out Coconut White Card and again inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Delightful Sentiments Clear Stamp Set using Cobolt Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in Sue's Dainty Rectangular Frame Die Set and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners, a White Crystal Sparkler to the centre of the rosettes and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Lovely card Julia, thank you. Also I have recorded your craft clinic shows, partly to keep a reminder on how to use everything and also because I had to go out and didn't want to miss any of it. It's being lovely, you two go well together.

    This card is stunning. I do hope I have recorded your shows today, I always record creative expressions shows, so I do hope I recorded the craft clinic ones as well. I love the look of this card especially the rosettes. Must look out for this die.
