You are Bloomin' Fabulous

Hi Bloggers.

I'm down south today demoing at Emerald Crafts in Lyndhurst 10 till 4. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Sue's Scribbled PVA Technique on Milk Card with Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Decadent Oak, Chic Pumpkin and Chic Moss. I put aside for a few hours to dry.

For the frame, I cut the largest Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die out of Milk Card. I cut the largest 2 dies from the Spellbinders Triple Floral Die Set out of Chestnut Card. I glued the 2 die cuts together using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I put is aside for the glue to dry for a few minutes then seated another 6 x 6 Matting Basics Die within the Triple Floral Die Cut and ran it through the Grand Calibur.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's new Tulip Elements Stamp Set using Coffee Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Triple Floral Die Set. I cut a 6 x 6 Matting Basics Die out of Chestnut Card.

I tied a bow using Creative Exprssions Antique White Satin Ribbon. I made a flower using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set, added CS Dries Clear Glue and some CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.

I made a couple of Decorative Stick Pins using Creative Expressions Stick Pin Elements and Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by.
