Giveaway Card - Birthday Wishes in Chic Moss

Good Afternoon Everyone

So,.. here I am, with enough time to actually do a Blog post and I thought, it's been a while since I did a card giveaway,so .. here you go :-)

I'll just say a big thank you to Barb too, she's doing a grand job keeping you inspired with some of her cards she's made for me for samples.. Thanks Barb!

This is an 8x8 card I made using some of my Chic Moss collection of Cosmic Shimmer products (a colour that I absolutely love!)

To be in with a chance to win this card, signed by lil ole me, please just ensure you are following my Blog and leave a comment on this post..
I'll draw a winner randomly next Monday morning (14th) and notify you here :-)

Here's what I used (and, surprisingly, I've made the list links to the items on my website too (well, it does make it easier for you to swish over and buy them lol)

Sentimentally Yours Dragonfly Retreat A6 Background Stamp
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Frame Sentiments Stamp Set (must have set in my humble opinion)
Chic Moss : Colour Cloud, Ink Mister and PVA Glue
Sue Wilson Delicate Fronds Die Set
Sue Wilson Delicate Daisies Complete Petals Die Set (must have set in my humble opinion)
Sue Wilson Ornamental Corners Die Set
Sue Wilson Pierced Tags Die Set
Sue Wilson A4 Leafy Montage Embossing Folder
Creative Expressions Self Adhesive Pearl Strips - Double Row White
Creative Expressions Smoothies


And here's what I did... 

I embossed an A4 piece of white cardstock with the lovely Leafy Montage embossing folder, (important to do this before trimming it down as embossing cardstock alters the dimensions slightly) I then trimmed it to 19.5cm x 19.5cm.

I then cut the aperture to the left side of my embossed cardstock and I did this with one of Sues' Striplet dies as most have the plain outer edge (you can, of course, use your craft knife)
I positioned the aperture onto my card blank as if I was going to stick it and made a pencil mark around all four corners (this gave me a a guide with which to stamp within)

Using the fabulous Smoothies and my even more fabulous Dragonfly Retreat background stamp, I applied Chic Moss Colour Cloud directly to the stamp and stamped within the pencil lines.

At this point, you may find it easier to apply the self adhesive pearls around the aperture (I do it at the end so I don't have them where they don't need to be, but it is trickier trying to navigate them under flowers etc) The single row was created by simply cutting a strip of the double row pearls in half :-)

I then used foam tape on this piece, for dimension, then stuck it to my card blank.

I then did all my die cutting, which was:-
4 x daisies x 2
2 x Ornate Corners
2 x Delicate Fronds
2 x Pierced Tags

The ornate corners, one of the pieced tags and a selection of the delicate daisies were popped into my ink misting box and misted all in one go with the Chic Moss Ink Mister.

The flowers were shaped and stuck together with my trusty Cosmic Shimmer PVA Glue and finished off in the centre with a good blob (very technical lol) of the Chic Moss Pearl PVA Glue.

I then stamped my 'Birthday Wishes' from my Scribbled Frame Stamps (these are a fabulous smaller size to my other sentiments so work perfectly on these tags)

Last but not least, I assembled it all together as you see in the photo and finished with the double row white pearls around the open edges.

Here's a bigger photo :-)


Don't forget my very first shows on Hochanda are:-

Tuesday 15th September at 8pm
Wednesday 16th September at 9am, 10am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm

I hope you will join me!!
Remember, if you don't have Sky or Freeview/Freesat you can watch in High Definition on their website


Happy Crafting!
