Takeover Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, today I have a sneak peek from my Takeover Shows tomorrow -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Bright White Card with the Spellbinders Elegance M-Bossabilities Folder. I cut another piece of Bright White Card slightly larger than the piece I embossed. I ran a Clear Perfect Medium Pad around it, added CS White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I added my embossed background to it and added the pair to a Bright White Card Blank using CE Mounting Cushion.

I cut dies #2 and #3 from the Spellbinders Renaissance Jewelled Frame Die Set and double embossed them using Clear Perfect Medium and White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I stamped the image from the Spellbinders Embroidered Flowers Stamp and Die Set onto Bright White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the die from the same set and added it to my card using 3D Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments onto Bright White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed using CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Tags Die Set and added to my card using 3D Foam.

I finished my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner of the frame.

My shows are at 10am, 1pm, 3pm and 6pm tomorrow and 3pm and 6pm on Sunday (with Mask Techniques). I've popped the full schedule into the left hand side bar of this blog (view web version on phones and tablets).
