Thinking of you

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at CE HQ yesterday. My next workshop up there is on Wednesday 16th November. For more details and to book click here. This Saturday we have our Christmas Playdate at Yardley Gobion Village Hall (just outside Milton Keynes) - for more info, click here.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a paper from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad, I trimmed it down a little and matted it onto Bright White Card.

I cut the border from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set out of the plain side of the same paper twice and glued it to the back of the white mat on my background. I added Mounting Cushion to the back of my background piece and matted onto another piece of Bright White Card. I used another piece of paper (plain side) as a mat and then added another larger mat of Bright White Card.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders In Spades Pendants Die Set out of Bright White Card and inked through the die with Phill Martin CS Chic Magenta Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the inner die out of patterned paper and inked through the die with Chic Magenta.

I added a Craft Consortium Vintage Pearl Charm to the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set and inked through the die with Chic Magenta.

I finished my card with some 5mm White Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by.

  24. The two Spellbinders dies you have used lend themselves perfectly to each other although they are from different sets. Phil's Blossom paper is the most lucious shade. Thanks.
