Live Laugh Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card from the One Day Special I did last week.

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Tied Together A4 Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Phill Martin Frosty Heather Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut one of the borders from the Couture Creations Simone's Style Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I trimmed it to size, added Clear Perfect Medium to the die cut and then brushed Frosty Heather Mica Powder over it.

I cut the Couture Creations Crystal Aroma Die out of Coconut White Card. I rubbed some Frosty Heather Gilding Wax over it and added some 5mm White Pearls.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Live Laugh Love Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I added a little piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet and some Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels. I then cut it out using the inner die in the Couture Creations Mirabilis Die Set. I inked around the edges a little using Frosty Heather Colour Cloud applied with a Smoothie. I cut the larger die in the Mirabilis Set out of Heather Card.

I cut the little flourish die from the Couture Creations Vierge Square Die Set out of Heather Card to add as a little accent.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

John Lockwood is back on Hochanda this evening with a new Christmas Decoupage One Day Special starting at 8pm and then continuing tomorrow. Hope you managed to catch some of his shows yesterday - Sam's new stamps are really lovely. I have ordered some for my website so watch this space for their arrival. Not sure what John will have on his shows this evening but you can see the MDF I have in stock here.

I have ordered some more masks and Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste and will let you know when they arrive too.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Such a pretty card, lovely colours. I sympathised with you when you were demonstrating how to extend the Crystal Aroma Die but loved your determination to do it, I think I would have been the same, lol. Thanks for sharing.
