Birthday Note

Hi everyone. We’ve had our first dose of winter this weekend – two jumpers and ugg boots weather – I’ve even put the electric blanket on my bed! Goodbye summer!

Anyway, here’s this weeks card:

P1100581

 

The paper is from DCWV’s Citrus Stack and the yellow strip was punched with Fiskar’s Notebook Border punch. The flower was punched using EK Success’ medium Retro Flower punch. The sentiment is from TPC Studio’s Celebration set and it’s stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I’ve used crochet thread and a button to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

Cheers for now

Fun with PearlEx

Hi everyone! I’ve had a busy weekend so I’m running late again :/

This week’s card is a very simple one.

P1100098

 

I used a sheet of grey cardstock and stamped it with Hero Art’s Zig Zag background stamp using VersaMark ink. Then I covered it with PearlEx #650 Micropearl.  You can’t really see it in the pic but it’s lovely and shiny! I stamped the greeting using a stamp from the Hero Arts set “It”s Your Day” in Memento “London Fog” ink. The flower was made with the Die-Namics Prima Donna Petals die. I  coloured it lightly with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink and put some sticky pearls in the centre.

I didn’t need to set the PearlEx on this project but if you want to you can just spray some water in the air and then quickly wave the cardstock through the mist.  Works every time!

Cheers for now!
