Decadent Wine,... With Love...

Good Morning Everyone

It's Monday!

Which means it's a brand new week and I have a brand new card to give away!

I love my range of Ink Misters and love that you can take a plain ole piece of cardstock and make it priddy with just a teeny bit of ink from the misters,.. I also love that you can die cut your favourite embellishments in the exact same colour!

It's also a bit of a bonus for me as I create the colours I want and then Creative Expressions develop the lovely products for me in completely co-ordinating colours,.. for a co-ordination freak like me, it's perfect!

It's something I've always wanted to do,.. reduce the stress for us crafters and maximise crafting time,.. no more searching for different products in colours that may or may not match,.. mine do!

Anyhoo,.. here's this weeks giveaway card... it's a big one,.. 18cm x 24cm to be precise!

This is what I used 
(as always, the list is also a link to the product on my website, just in case you 'need' to purchase any of the items I've used :-)

Coconut White Foundations Cardstock
Tartan Trellis A4 Embossing Folder
Decadent Wine Complete Cosmic Shimmer Kit
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Frame Sentiments Stamps
Sentimentally Yours Rose Montage Stamps
Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pad
Bundled Sage Distress Ink Pad
Dies by Sue Wilson Gemini PYXIS Die
Dies by Sue Wilson Austrian Collection - Innsbruck
Dies by Sue Wilson Austrian Collection - Salzburg
Dies by Sue Wilson - Finishing Touches - Faux Quilled Blooms

And here's what I did

I trimmed 2 pieces of Coconut White cardstock to 18cm x 24cm and on one of them I scored down 2.5cm on the short side (this just creates a 'fold' so the card stands)
Layer 1 is 17.5 x 23.5cm and this was embossed with the lovely (one of my faves) Tartan Trellis Embossing folder in my Grand Calibur, the edges were inked using the Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pad.

I cut two pieces of card using the Pyxis die, both pieces are 17.5 cm wide and they were trimmed so that one overlaps the other slightly.
The larger of the two was given the Decadent Wine Ink Mister treatment (as was the waste bit from this piece, which was used at the top of my card)
The smaller piece was stamped on the bottom corners with one of the roses from my Rose Montage stamps, 2 in first generation and 1 second generation in the centre, Leaves were stamped either side using second generation Bundled Sage.
These pieces were then stuck to the bottom of the embossed piece with Cosmic Shimmer glue, as was the waste piece that was ink misted and then this lot was stuck to the card itself with Cosmic Shimmer glue.

I added the peals using the Decadent Wine Pearl PVA Glue and set this all to one side to dry.

In the meantime, I die cut the layers from the Innsbruck and Salzburg dies from Coconut White Foundations Cardstock, the bottom (full) layer from each set was ink misted and the smaller oval on top was given a stamped edge using the beautiful Rose Montage stamps (top tip - do the leaves first), you can see that I did the same on the oval, 2 first generation and 1 second generation. Stamping my montage stamps 'off the edge' of toppers really makes the topper priddy :-) I stamped my new Scribbled Frame Sentiment into the centre using the Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
All these layers are on foam tape for definition.

I used some of the ink misted cardstock that was left and die cut 2 butterflies, placing one either side of my toppers.

As a finishing touch, I die cut 3 flowers from the Faux Quilled Blooms in the same size and some leaves.
These were stuck onto the card using Cosmic Shimmer Glue and I added a large pearl using the Decadent Wine PVA Glue,.. brilliant that we can make these any size!!


Finally, I added one of my signature triple upside bows (link to my YouTube Video showing you how to make them) using some co-ordinating seam binding ribbon and the extra tails, with a lovely heart dazzler in the centre (use Cosmic Shimmer glue for sticking the dazzlers too, sticks like a dream onto seam binding!)

Anyhoo, I hope you like this card,.. I really enjoyed making it (so much so, I'm re-creating it as a Christmas card with my new stamps as we type,.. well, I will be finishing it once I've finished this post lol)

To be in with a chance of winning this card, simply leave a comment (you must be following my Blog too) and the winner will be chosen at random next Monday (13th) morning.

Don't forget I will be at Summer Crafting in Doncaster this weekend!!
My stand is D13, hope to see some of you there!!

Good Luck!

Happy Crafting!
