Treasured Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Are you loving Sue's new dies? There are some real beauties, aren't there?

I have a really easy peasy card today made with all of the dies in Sue's new Classic Adorned Rectangles Noble Die Set.

I used the largest 3 dies in the set to cut a frame. The middle of the frame has a lovely deboss detail.

I cut the decorative die within a piece of Coconut White Card. Using Sue's Fire & Ice Technique, I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet over the top. I rubbed rome Red Speckle into the exposed adhesive on the back of the die cut piece. I removed the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I turned the card over, removed the other piece of backing and rubbed Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles over the surface.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I used the smallest die in the set to cut it out and then cut the next size die to act as a mat.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  26. Hi Julia, I am amazed at this new set of dies, and until today I thought the noble range were my fav, and ordered them however the angled slim dies are truly awesome, cannot believe I said that word but can't think of another to explain how much I like them.
    Sorry went off on one then, love your card, love the colours in the gilding flakes and the best thing is that it looks as though you have spent all day working on it, yet your description is it's an easy easy card. Keep up the great work X Ros
