Many Happy Returns

Hi Bloggers.

There's still quite a few cards from the Woodware One Day Special that I did earlier this month that I haven't shared yet so I'll mix it up a bit with the cards from this week's shows over the next couple of weeks.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Pad. I applied Clear Perfect Medium to the deboss side of the CE Rope Chain Embossing Folder via a Brayer. I added CS Crushed Grape Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I edged with CS Gentle Lavender Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I had a strip of background leftover from another project - spritzed with CS Pastel Purple Chalk Mister through the Being Square Mask onto Black Card. I edged it with Gentle Lavender Chalk Cloud.

I stamped one of the flowers from the Woodware Fancy Flowers Stamp Set onto Black Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS White Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in using CS Summer Garden Watercolour Set using a Water Brush. I cut the image out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles and edged with Gentle Lavender Chalk Cloud.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Birthday Cake Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags and edged with Gentle Lavender Chalk Cloud.

I completed my card by adding a Black Rhinestone Self-Adhesive Swirl.

Here's the list of the Sue Wilson Dies that I have on my One Day Special on 12th June -
Necessities Collection : Elegant Cross, Vintage Handbags, Vintage Perfume Bottle

  1. Morning julia lovely card today.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxxx

  2. Sorry I have not been commenting for a week or so, but I was unwell and then the events of this week just threw me. I managed to catch one of your shows and loved the effects you achieved with the stained glass dies. There were also some beautiful cards from your blog followers and it was lovely to see what can be created by other crafters.
    My eye was caught by your bracelet and I was impressed to read that it was the one you had made on your beading holiday. You are so talented (and patient, to have made that!)
    Today's card is very striking and I love the background and the colours. I hope you can get out for at least a short while this weekend, to enjoy the sunshine. We do need the vitamin D! Have a good weekend.

  3. Good morning Julia this card is gorgeous. I am looking forward to seeing all your other cards. Have a great weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie
