Monochrome Bracket Birthday....

Good Morning Everyone

It's a beautiful, sunny morning here in Nottingham and both myself and Barb are busy making samples for my shows on HOCHANDA next Monday & Tuesday (details below)

I thought I'd share this card with you, that I made yesterday morning and, if you follow me on my Facebook page, you will have seen the photos of my desk as I prepped for this card :-)

I will be making this card on air too, as one of my demos (although, knowing me, I may just change a few small things too!)

Anyhoo, here is what I used (naturally, the list is linked to the products on my www too, should you 'need' to buy them)

Black Foundations Cardstock
Brilliant White Cardstock
Sentimentally Yours Bracket Birthday Verse A5 Stamp Set (NEW)
Sentimentally Yours Crackled A6 Background Stamp
Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels
Creative Expressions Small Black Dazzlers
Black Soot Distress Ink Pad
Creative Expressions A4 Tartan Trellis Embossing Folder (one of my all time faves!!)
Dies by Sue Wilson Noble Ornate Pierced Rectangles
Dies by Sue Wilson Perfect Peony (complete petals)
Dies by Sue Wilson Laurel Leaves
Black Seam Binding Ribbon

And here's my card...
This is quite a big card, at 22cm x 18cm,..

                                                       Here is a close up of the centre of my card, featuring my fab new Bracket Verse Stamps..

And here is a close up of the pretty Peony flower,..
you'll notice that I die cut them in plain ole white cardstock, then stamped my Crackled background stamp over them in Black Soot distress ink,.. the fab sparkle (I don't 'do' glitter, apart from Glamour Dust and our amazing Glitter Jewels!) is Iced Snow glitter jewels, applied over Cosmic Shimmer pva glue,..

In case I forget to mention it (as if ha ha), I am back on your HOCHANDA TV Screens for a new One Day Special, next Monday & Tuesday..

Monday 12th - 8pm Launch Show
Tuesday 13th - 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm

I'll be showcasing my new Bracket Collection Stamps (these have never been on TV yet!) and I can tell you now,.. it is an amazing price for the collection!!
I'll also have some of my favourite Graceful Cosmic Shimmer Products and Paper/Insert Pads too)

Exciting times!

Don't forget too, that I will be at the Stamp Magic Show in Doncaster, next Sunday (18th October) so I hope I see some of you there :-)

Anyhoo, this post has taken me far longer than I thought, so I better get off and get some work done!

Hope you like the card :-)

Happy Crafting!
