Black & White Best Wishes - with a new Scribbled Corner Stamp too!

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope you're enjoying the lovely weather!

OK, so, I'm a little more than excited about the release of my brand new Scribbled Corner Stamps and Scribbled Frame Stamps,..
The Scribbled Sentiments stamps have been so popular and I have wanted to do corner sentiment stamps for ages,.. the Scribbled is a perfect style for this!

There are three new releases in the Scribbled range, Scribbled Corner Sentiments 'Everyday', Scribbled Corner Sentiments 'Occasions' and Scribbled Frame Sentiments,..

The Scribbled Frame Sentiments are amazing, there are two Scribbled frames, one that the sentiments actually 'attach' to the sides when you stamp them and the other enables you to create longer borders to sit your sentiments into!

Anyhoo, enough rattling on, they are available now on my website here:- New Scribbled Sentiment Stamps
(note that the stamps are listed alphabetically, so just scroll down until you find them)

Onto the card I made....
This is an A4 sized card and I wanted to show how the Scribbled Corner Stamps work effortlessly with the Scribbled Frame Stamps..especially as the frame sentiments are cutey, smaller ones :-)

This is what I used (and they are links to my website for you to go and purchase if you need to) :-)

A4 Swirling Hearts Embossing Folder

Dies By Sue Wilson Portuguese Collection - Corner, Border & Tag
Cosmic Shimmer White Pearl PVA Glue
Creative Expressions Heart Dazzlers

This is really quite a straight forward card :-)

There are a few layers of matting and layering in alternate black and white, the largest white layer has been pierced all the way around and this, along with the slightly larger black layer have been stuck onto the card with Cosmic Shimmer glue (flat)

There are actually two white layers on the top, the top one has been die cut with the Portuguese border die, at an angle, to give me the shaped edge, this was them embossed with the pretty Swirling Hearts embossing folder.

I die cut an extra border in black card and this slotted into the space left on the shaped edge of the white piece (I attached it with cosmic shimmer glue on the very edges - patience required!) ha ha

The two black diagonal pieces were actually waste from my matting & layering so I put them to good use :-)

I stamped my fabulous Scribbled Corner Sentiment onto the next white layer and then attached to top white layer with foam tape, this was then stuck to the next black layer with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and then the whole caboodle was stuck onto the white pierced layer with foam tape.
** If you want your corner sentiments the 'right way up', stamp them in any top corner **

At this stage, I added the white pearls with the Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA glue and set aside to dry (we've all done that haven't we?.. accidentally put something on the top of still drying pearl pva!)

I love Sues' Portuguese collection,.. the border is amazing, the topper dies are lovely, with great variation too!

Anyhoo, you can see that I cut the two layers of the die in white and then the base layer die in black. I stuck the white, patterned layers onto the plain black layers and, using my quickie glue pen, filled in the gaps with glue, then dunked it into my iridescent glitter station (it's a fabulous effect on any colour cardstock) The centre of the dies is a pretty little circle and it's the perfect size for me to stamp my new Scribbled Frame Sentiments! The edges were then glued (pva for definition) and dunked into glitter.

Lastly, I die cut hundreds (it felt like it!) of the Peony flower die in black and white card,.. to create the shape I have, I literally just 'pinched' the petals in the middle and pushed down the centre with my flower shaping tool. Some had a pearl inside, some had the glitter inside,.. the bigger black flowers have either a stripe of glitter (I used my pva glue) or the edges glittered,.. it all adds interest :-)
I finished off my glittering two of the maidenhair ferns tat I die cut in white cardstock and poPped them under the flowers at the top :-)

Hope you like it,.. sadly, I won't be giving this card away as, well, it weighes a tonne! ha ha, but I'd still like to read your comments (nice ones anyway) lol

Thanks so much for dropping by,.. I hope I've given you a little inspiration :-)

Now go and get those Scribbled Corner Sentiment Stamps before they sell out :-)
