Best Wishes for Your Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you enjoyed the shows on Hochanda. I'm heaading up to the West Midlands to see my Mom for her birthday today so please be patient if you ordered from my website over the past few days - I will post as many orders as I can tomorrow. Sorry for running out of stock of many of the stamps, my laptop through a wobbly and I couldn't get on it to order any extra stock. 😒 I'll try and order some more today but many of the stamps are out of stock at CE. I do have a few stamps from the shows still available here.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I sprinkled some CS Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powder onto a piece of Copy Paper. I pressed the Woodware Memories Stamp into the powder, spritzed with water and stamped onto Coconut White Card. I repeated this 3 more times to cover my card. I edged with Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Card Blank.

I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with water. I sprinkled Aqua Lagoon and Aubergine Dream CS Pixie Powders over and put aside to dry. Once dry, I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Woodware Love Collage Stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it into 3 sections and matted each section onto Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Hand Drawn Sentiments Stamp Set onto another piece of my Pixie background, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Black Detail Powder. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles Set B and a mat out of Black Card using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles.

I finished my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to the corners of my background.

Thanks for stopping by.
