Hang in There!

Hi Bloggers.

This is another card that hasn't had it's day on the blog. I know the animal stamps aren't everyone's cup of tea but be kind - remember only positive comments please!

A Stamp in the Hand Background on this one. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Creative Expressions Kitten Treats A6 Background onto Milk Card using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I stamped Pickle onto Milk Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ancient Copper Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Large and inked through the die with Vintage Photo. I cut the Couture Creations Splendour Die out of Chestnut Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Paws-itively Great Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Ancient Copper Detail Powder. I cut if out using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.

I tied a bow using Brown Solid Satin Centre Band Ribbon and added a Vintage Metal Embellishment.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  23. Morning Julia,
    First Of All I Find It Hard To Believe That People Don't Send Positive Comments In Don't They Realise That Any Thing Else Can Be Hurtful And Extremely Unkind, My Moan For Today!! If They Don't Like The Card It's Best Not To Comment At All.
    I Purchased The Dog Stamps From This Range As I Have Two Wonderful Dogs,
    I Have The Spellbinders Classic Circles Since Purchasing Sue's Awesome Dies I Forget What I've Actually Got In My Collection.
    I Love The Fabulous Stamped Background And Your Cat Whom Actually Designed These Stamps? Fabulous Bow And Vintage Metal Embellishment, I Love The Ones Yourself And Sue Have Used Recently To Add Mica Flakes Into, Can You Still Purchase These!

    Take Great Care Julia
    Love And Hugs
