Pink And Glittery

Good evening all

Just a quick post tonight as I have an early start at work tomorrow.  This is my first card as a Guest Designer for Oyster Stamps, my local craft store.  I am still a little dazed by the fact that they liked my cards.

This one has been made using one of the new Spellbinders dies called French Harmony.


Using the Honey Doo Crafts Flourish stamp and the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Worn Lipstick ink pad, I have stamped around the edges of a square piece of white card stock.  Next, I have inked around the edges using the same ink pad and mounted it onto blue card stock leaving a small border around the edge.  This forms the main background of my card.

Next, I have embossed a smaller piece of white card stock using the Spellbinders Quilted Delight embossing folder and again mounted onto blue card stock.


To make the glittery centre piece, I have cut out the Spellbinders French Harmony die from white card stock backed with a double sided adhesive sheet and covered with Glamour Dust.  Next I have mounted this onto the same blue card.


The flowers have been made using the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms.  I have stamped the smallest flowers onto white card using Perfect Medium, heat embossed with Wow Opaque Bright White embossing powder and cut out using the matching die.

I have added colour to the ends of each petal using the Worn Lipstick Distress Ink pad, shaped and layered them to form five small flowers.  Into the centre of each flower, I have glue small pink pearl beads using Pinflair glue.


To finish the card, I have added small pink gemstones.
