Good Morning Ladies,
Todays card was inspired by my stamp that arrived yesterday, Creative Expressions Floral Doodle,
its really pretty and stamps really well with my new Fiskars Stamp Press, it does make stamping
easier, there is no awkward hovering over a piece of card, you pop your stamp on the block, ink it up and the foam legs hold it a few centimetres above your card, when you are ready and have the position you want you press down with one hand and rub your fingers over the area of the stamp with the other! I think i find easier because I don't weight bare normally so holding a stamp block and hovering over a piece of card and then placing it down gently and correctly can be quite hit and miss!
Anyway back to the card, I stamped the Floral Doodle Stamp onto a lovely piece of almost Cornflower Blue card with Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder, I used the same items to stamp the sentiment too.
I matt and layered some Cream card and the beautiful blue American Crafts card, finishing with blue, I then ran a piece of the cream card through the GC using the Creative Expressions Eternity Embossing Folder, I matted that onto the blue card, I added a double layer of foam tape under my Cream Card Frame, with a little blue card for highlight. I placed the stamped focal element onto the card and then added a square of Cream card, cut with the smallest Square of the Union Square die, and them a smaller Blue Matt with sentiment stamped on, cut with the centre of the Noble Pierced Square Die set from Creative Expressions.
I cut two of the Delicate Fronds dies to use as a base for my bow, I then ties a double bow using off white Vintage Seam Binding, I topped that with a double bow of the thinner Blue ribbon from CE, I then made a flower using the Camellia Full Petal Die Set and added some glue and sugared it with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow, I them added a few pearls, both Blue and white, and then made two Stick Pins in matching blue and cream pearls! I would love to hear what you think about my card.
I really enjoyed making this one! I have Pat coming over today, I have my fingers crossed that Sue will be joining us too, I have missed her so much! I am looking forward to see what Sue has created with her new dies. There are one of two of them that have caught my eye! I hadn't realised that the POD on C&C was another Tattered Lace thing, that explains the price, I like the shoe though!
Love and Hugs to all of you
