Back from a very busy One Day Special. Hope you enjoyed the shows - they are really lovely dies and that paper pad! Well, I hope you got yours!
Today will be spent doing post, unpacking, washing and trying to sort out the huge amount of website stock that is currently sat in my lounge! I really need to get on with my next post for the Spellbinders Blog and I have a couple of projects to do for Making Cards Magazine. How many hours are there in a day??
Here's today's card -
When I was cutting the dies to go on the sample boards, I thought the waste from the little berries die in the Spellbinders Labels Fifty Decorative Accents
looked like it would be good to ink through. So, in a moment of madness, I cut the die many times in a square of foundations card to make my own mask. I used my mask to create my background, first inking though it onto Milk Card
with CS Rose Blush Colour Cloud
applied using a Smoothie
. I then rotated my mask and inked through it with CS Spring Bluebell Colour Cloud
applied using a Smoothie. I ran my Rose Blush inked Smoothie around the very edges of the card.
I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Mini Baroque Inspirational Sentiments Stamp Set
onto Milk Card using Cobalt Archival.
I cut it out using a Spellbinders Labels 50 Decorative Accents die and inked through the die with Rose Blush Colour Cloud.
I cut the largest die in the same set out of Milk Card and again inked through the die with Rose Blush Colour Cloud.
I cut the 4 flower die and the swag die from the Spellbinders Floral Berry Accents Die Set
out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Rose Blush Colour Cloud. I popped some CS True White Detail Embossing Powder
into a bag and added a little CS Phill Martin Chic Magenta Mica Powder
and gave it a shake. I added Clear Perfect Medium
, my embossing powder mix and heat set. I shaped the flowers and added them to the swag die cut.
I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls
and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler
, Precision Probe
and Piercing Mat
