Morning all! One of my other favourites from the last shows for today's offering. I love lavender and it is so pretty and clean when paired with white. I started by cutting two of the Decorative labels 8 dies in the largest size in white. I nipped away a small strip from the sides of both of them in order to make them fit as a background. Then I glued them on lavender card. Next I stamped my Cupid background and white heat embossed it. I roughed up the edges a bit with the side of my scissors to distress it. Then I inked them with Dusty Concord distress ink around the edge. Using the matching Antique Tags One die set, I cut an aperture in the bottom of my background. I stamped my sentiment (from the Grand sentiment set by JustRite) on white card and mounted the background over it using foam pieces. Next I cut one of the medium sized dies in the Decorative Labels 8 set in white card. I mounted it over the heart in the background using foam pieces. I stamped my sentiment and frame on to lavender card using a black archival ink pad. I cut it out with the matching tag die and inked it with Dusty Concord. I cut the smallest die in the decorative Labels 8 set, cut it in half and attached it to the top and bottom of my sentiment. I placed it in the centre of my focal element with foam pieces for dimension. I added some flatback pearls for accents and pierced the edges of my double white mat to complete my card. Yes, girlie indeed! Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
Well I had hoped to show you some pics from CHA, however, I thought I would make it easier on take them with my phone rather than my camera. I can't seem to get them to load from my phone after several attempts! However, I have noticed that just about everything I took pics of has been put online on You Tube already! I decided that I would video the demos that I saw at the special invitation Ranger event, which I was invited to attend before the show opened on Sunday morning. Absolutely no luck loading those either. I am sure that if my skills were actually skills and not the blind fumbling that I do on the computer, I could have accomplished it. So sorry, I hope you will be satisfied with just the cards on the blog! I love this one! All for now, Sue x
