Peace on Earth

Hi Bloggers.

John Lockwood and I are demoing at Samuel Taylors, Roseville Street, Leeds today 10am till 4pm. If you're in the area, please stop by.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Coconut White Card. I spritzed a piece of Cut n Dry Foam with Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Mink Ink Spray Mist. I used this as my Ink Pad. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Creative Expressions Florentine Background. I added a little more Ink Spray Mist to my Craft Sheet. I mixed in a little Phill's Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Mink Mica Powder and picked it up onto my Ink Pad. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Creative Expressions Twas the Night Background into some of the gaps in my background. I then ran it though the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Let it Snow Embossing Folder.

I cut a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles Die Set.

I cut Sue's Peace on Earth Die out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Phill's Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Mink Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I made a flower using Sue's Classic Poinsettia, Classic Poinsettia - Open Petals , Phill's Frosty Christmas 8 x 8 Paper Pad and Coconut White Card. I added a Vintage Brad to the centre.

I cut a pair of Sue's Holly Sprays out of Coconut White Card and added Phill's Frosty Mink Gilding Wax.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat. The coloured mat below the piercing is Coconut White Card coloured with Frosty Mink Colour Cloud.

Thanks for stopping by.
