Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are at the start of another week, are you all excited for the draw tomorrow, I have everything crossed for all of you, lets please hope that the prizes go to regular bloggers.
Todays Card was made using an apricot/peach colour card for the top of the card and coconut white for the bottom. I started with a an 8 x 8 white card and added a pierced mat of white card, then I embossed the peach colour card with the Creative Expressions Eternity EF, the bottom card I put on the Hougie Board and scored lines all the way across, I then cut both pieces of card on an angle (inspired by Sue ) and stick this to the base card. I added some cotton lace across the join sticking with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and tucking the edges under the side of the card. Before sticking down I weaved some apricot coloured seam binding through the lace, as I thought it would look pretty! I tied some more of the ribbon into a messy bow and secured a heart shaped dazzler in the centre, I made one decorative stick pin in matching peachy tone beads and a couple of plain pearl pins too.
I cut the Oslo outside die as a matt, I then cut it again with the decorative edge in place, after embossing I inked through with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, which matched the peach colour perfectly, this gave a little definition to the die cut. I then cut the largest of the two inside dies in the peach card then stamped my sentiment onto white card and die cut with the smallest inside die.
I matted these all together using very tiny foam pads to raise the top decorative die cut from the base.
I added just three tiny matching Mulberry roses in the bottom corner with a couple of white rose buds and some foliage and one in the top corner for balance.
I look forward to reading your comments today.
I wonder how many blog posts Sue had today, do you think that they will start to decline already?
How did you all enjoy Sue's shows this weekend, anyone have a favourite show/demo.
I am not going to ask if you bought anything as I would be amazed if you had at those prices and then the postage on top! Although I will admit I was tempted by those new E folders and the packs of ribbon, but I am sure they will be cheaper at Ally Pally or online. Some of those dies were £5 more than Icon, then you had to add £2.99, its extortion.
I was quite shocked when Sam was saying that her friend that was on the other day had to give 60%
of what they sold, plus some exclusivity deal no doubt, no wonder they are clearing off to that internet channel!
Right I must get on, cards to make, blogs to look at!
Love and Hugs
