Friends Always

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another simple card today where the stamps and the Pixie Powder are doing all the work.

I started by creating my PP background. I misted a piece of Coconut White Card with water, sprinkled CS Burnt Orange Pixie Powder over and put aside to dry. Once dry, I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped one of the images from the Woodware Small Fennel Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium, added CS Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles and cut a mat out of Black Card using the next sized die.

I stamped the sentiment that comes in the Woodware Bubble Bloom : Curly Sue Stamp Set onto some more of my PP background, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Black Detail Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Double Pierced Squares and cut the next sized die out of Black Card.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Eternal Ivy Embossing Folder. I matted onto Black Card and onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I finished my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.

I managed to finish adding the new stock from Creative Expressions to my website yesterday. Please pop over an have a look if you have the time. There's some lovely stuff to play with. For details of what's new, please see the end of yesterday's post. I have some new Wow! Embossing Powders and Glitters due in today - gorgeous!
