Good Morning Ladies,
The first thing I want to say today is to Our Very Dear Michele,
We are all stood with you today my lovely, I hope that good sense prevails today, we all love you dearly xxxx
How is your week going ladies? I hope you have made good progress with your shopping and festive preparations.
Have you all got your trees up and decorated?? How about Sharing a photo??
Now onto today's Card, it's a bit of a sneak peek at something coming up in the new Stampin'Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue, (ssshhhh)!!!
It's a kit called 'Lots Of Happy Stamp Kit', it's a fantastic gift box packed full of everything you need to make some fantastic cards, for so many different occasions, you even get the stamp block, black ink and watercolor pencils!
Not one to follow directions I took just a couple of the elements from the kit as added a some Whisper White card and card base, Stampin'Up! 'Garden Trellis' Embossing Folder, which I used to emboss my background, I then used a dry 'wet' wipe to add a tiny amount of Gilding Wax to the raised parts of the Embossed background, I then used a small piece of patterned card from the kit and added a mat of 'Berry Burst' card both with a hint of gilding wax swiped around the edges.
The floral sprays are from the kit, I coloured them with the Watercolour pencils in the kit, (Berry Burst & Old Olive).
The round tag is from the kit, i used one of the included stamps to stamp my sentiment in Versamark, added Gold Embossing powder and heat set, popped foam pads on the back and placed in centre of my decorative panel, i then took the coloured floral sprays and tucked them behind the sentiment, adding a little gilded sprig on top and behind i popped one of thd Vellum leaf sprays from the kit (brushed with gilding wax. (As you can see in the close up below)!
I do hope you like your sneak peek!!
I had a lovely day with Sue yesterday, although we didn't get any crafting done, apart from making a quick gift bag at the end of the afternoon. I really appreciated you sitting with me Sue, while i spoke to OT's, who i have to say were both Shocked and disgusted by our situation !
They have gone off to see what they can do to help. So fingers crossed !
Sending love and hugs to all of you, especially you Michele. X
