Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I'd start the sneak peeks for Sunday's shows so you can get a good idea of what's on the shows and to give you a bit of inspiration. You've already had one sneak peek on Sunday in this post.

Here's today's sneak peek -

For the background, I cut the Spellbinders Twisted Palm Die out of Coconut White Card 4 times. I added a piece of Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Duck Egg Card and trimmed it to 6 1/2" x 6 1/4".  I peeled away the other backing sheet and added my Twisted Palm die cuts as shown. I used the backing paper to make sure the borders were properly adhered. I then added CS Diamond Sprinkles.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using the middle sized die in the Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Accents Die Set and inked through the die with CS Phill Martin Chic Grey Blue Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the largest die in the set out of Duck Egg Card.

I cut some leaves out of Duck Egg Card using Spellbinders Romantic Vines. I made 3 scrunched up flowers - 2 from the #1 die in the Spellbinders Savoy Labels Die Set and 1 from the #2 die. I cut 6 for each flower. I inked the tips of the 'petals' with Chic Grey Blue Colour Cloud.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

I'm hoping that my stock of new Spellbinders Dies will arrive today or tomorrow - I'll let you know when they're loaded onto my website. 

I've loaded stock of new WOW! Embossing Glitters onto my website - not quite loaded all the colours I have yet, but most of them are there. You can find them here.

Thanks for stopping by.
